Wednesday night was the annual shopping event held at West Elm and sponsored by Style at Home Magazine. And once again, it was a fabulous night of shopping and networking with other design bloggers. I brought a client/friend of mine and trust me we shopped till we dropped!!
Unfortunately I didn’t get to take any pictures because one hand was holding a glass of wine while the other was juggling an assortment of amazing home accessories from West Elm!!
So instead I thought I would show you some of the items we purchased yesterday along with some cool Christmas decorations you can purchase at the store or online. Thankfully they ship right across Canada!!
Adorable nutcrackers and elves.
Love these double glass ornaments!!
If I wasn’t going all glitz and glamour this year again, I would definitely go with this natural, woodsy theme!
I have a bird fetish which you will see when I reveal my all white glamour Christmas tree….sadly I missed these yesterday or I would have picked up a few of these beautiful white feathered birds.
I bought some of these above and these below for client gifts
And you can’t forget about their iconic white lacquered trays!! Or in any other colour you desire!!
Under my guidance my client purchased the following:
Tall Butler tray stand with the large lacquered metallic silver tray for her dining room. It will look stunning!!
She also purchased this adorable silver hexagon side table for her family room. She has one lone occasional chair that is screaming for a small table where guests can set a drink on. This one is perfect!!
So it will look something like this in the end:
We both also bought some of these fun bowls…..just because they were so cheerful looking! They can be used in the kitchen or in an office to hold paperclips, etc.
West Elm is one of my most favourite decor stores to pick up affordable home accessories for clients and for myself!! If you haven’t been on their website or store, then you must do so STAT!!
Struggling with a Christmas gift idea….well here’s one you may love for someone special or for yourself!!!
I fell in love with the Toy Watch brand of watches last spring when I saw it on one of my girlfriends’ wrist. And voila, for Mother’s Day I had this little charmer on my arm!!
I blogged about it in one of my “Decorate as you Dress” posts last spring here.
Well, now it’s time (I think) for a black Toy Watch …..and this is the baby that I have put on my Santa list!! It has lots of sparkle and glam….exactly what I love in my fashion accessories and in my home decor accessories.
Or maybe this one……What do you think?
These watches are so much fun….and I promise, you will get a ton of compliments on your new watch….So if you are struggling on what to tell your significant other what to get you…..you may want to consider a fun, sassy Toy Watch. Or better yet give it to a fashionable young lady….she’ll love you for it!!
P.S. You should have read this blog post yesterday….but I got carried away Christmas shopping and forgot to press publish!! So you may receive 2 posts in one day!! Ciao for now!!
Maybe I need to win the lottery because lately I’ve been obsessed with the interior decor of private jets and mega-big yachts. And dahling, if you are using one of these as your mode of transportation, than you ARE definitely living the GLAMOROUS Life!!!
Last year I wrote a post about glam decor in private jets….you can read it here. For today’s Glamour Friday post, I thought I would take us on a little cruise in the Fortunato. It’s a gorgeous “little” yacht – just over 200 ft. long and is the perfect size to host 12 BFFs.
I fell in love with the interior because it was very nicely accessorized with colours I love…..take a look:
I adore the combined living and dining room. The coral and sea blue cushions on the sectional is the perfect spot to cozy up with friends over drinks. And the blue striped velvet chairs in the dining room are to die for!! And every glamorous room needs a chandelier!! And the cream and brown striped carpet is utter perfection!!
Now this would be my master bedroom. I love all the honeysuckle cushions on that fabulous bed. OH, and look at the cranberry chaise built for two!! And you got to love how my television is hidden at the end of the bed in that beautiful built-in.
Wouldn’t you want to enjoy a wonderful brunch on this deck, inhaling the sea air while admiring that gorgeous view? I know I would. Ahhhhhh….oh well, a girl can only dream BIG dreams!!
Have a great weekend!! And don’t forget to buy a lottery ticket!!

I am loving anything lucite right now….and this very glamorous lucite acrylic console makes me shiver with delight!! It’s high on the drama quotient with the zebra bench but yet so simple with the beautiful B&W photograph above and minimal yet impactful accessories on display. Light grey walls and shimmery silk drapery all add up to a major GLAM SLAM!!!
If your home is craving some lucite and glamour, then contact me online or in person! I’d love to help!
