West Elm’s Fabulous Fall 2014 Collection

August 19, 2014 Decorating

Worked by HY

Even though I’m holding on tightly to the last days of summer I’m starting to look at fall decor products and trends for some upcoming TV segments and other projects. One Fall collection that I am utterly obsessed with this season is West Elm! They pretty much knock it out of the park every season but I am seriously in love with the look and feel of their fall assortment. The vibe is mid century meets luxe with lots of shimmering metallic accents and rich details which add a polished and luxurious feel to the more mid century and industrial styled furnishings. I plan to swap out my small accessories and restyle all of my tabletop surfaces for Fall so the snake candleholders, amber onyx boxes and flora + fauna trays are at the top of my wish list! Below are my favorite pieces from the collections. Which pieces are you loving most? I’d love to hear!
