West Elm & Etsy = Weltsy!

2 Feb

Two of my favorite shops, Etsy and West Elm just joined forces.  Aaaand, life is good.

According to those decorating geniuses over at West Elm:

“As long time fans of the handmade movement, we were thrilled to see grow to become the destination marketplace for one-of-a-kind vintage and handmade items.  Each season we’ll be highlighting unique pieces from Etsy artisans in our catalog pages. Those artisans are featured here as our Favorite Shops. And, we’ve highlighted our Favorite Items from sellers who are featured in our catalog and others, with a special focus on handmade products that we think would look great mixed with our latest west elm collection. “


Here are some items currently listed as Etsy favorites…  And as you can see they fit quite nicely into my favorites as well!  You can see their original listings by clicking here.

black and whiteThis post is inspired by my late Nanna and Poppop.

My Nanna had a true sense of style, and decorated their entire Floridian apartment in black and white. Everything from the wall art, furniture, to the decorative knickknacks, were in this ultra modern color scheme. And it was fabulous.

Likin the black and white vibe?  Here’s an easy way to get started…. This look pulls from my previous post “My Claim to Frame“.  Black and white are a FANTASTIC and rather easy way to create this type of look because you really don’t have to worry about matching…
