OLD CLASSICS MADE NEW

West Elm is one of those stores that always surprises me; it's not really my style, but I almost always come across something fun. West Elm is to home decor what Gap used to be to clothes; classics re-imagined with flair.

A few favorites from the new spring line.

It reminds me of the Claude modular system, a marvelous design by Jonathan Adler.

More fun things in store - I'm going to pick up a few of these vases for a grouping of ceramics.


I'm in love with that mirror! And the fun little wall shelf/sconce is marvelous.

A few more favorites...





And finally, a few terrariums... these are all the rage this season! You can hardly enter a decor store these days that hasn't been transformed into a miniaturized forest, populated by ferns, moss, and the odd spider plant. I enjoy indoor plants, but find the whole trend a tad precious. What do you think? Have you tried a terrarium in your home?

I have tried them quite a few times. They never look as pretty in real life as in photos. If it's working right, then there's condensation on the sides which leaves residual dirt. If it's not working the plants get moldy. I'll still do it on a whim but not I'm not committed to them.
Happy New Year!

I've never tried a terrarium mainly because I didn't think one would look right in my house (plus, I'm lazy). Was just in West Elm yesterday looking at their bedding. Definitely have some good looking stuff right now. Love that mirror!

Have not tried them...as I do not have a green thumb at all! However, I did buy 2 young fiddle leaf fig trees recently- we will see if I can keep them alive and growing! I will have to drop by West Elm soon...some of those pieces are intriguing! Take care, Caroline

I did terrariums the last time they were big (70s?). That was enough.
