More snow here yesterday – I think we got at least 8 inches! Thankfully, the day before, I got out with my Partner In Finds to hunt down a few Design Finds, so I have some fun things to share this week.
The first is a lucky bargain I got at West Elm. I was looking in the sale corner, and tucked next to a display cabinet I found this wonderful wall art – a graphic black botanical leaf pattern on birch wood. The grain of the wood makes a beautiful counterpoint to the bold simplicity of the leaf pattern and I fell in love with it right away. On the back it was marked “Originally $169, now $69.” PIF loved it too, and at the register we asked if they had any other patterns available. We were told that they rarely sell their wall art in the stores, and this piece was likely brought in by their designer for the model home but not used. (I didn’t get any further explanation about that so I’m not sure what that means!) I looked it up on their website when I got home and it’s still online for full price. Lucky me!
It looks fabulous against the dark charcoal grey wall in our living room. Will share pictures as soon as we hang it!
(Side note: West Elm also had tons of lovely throw blankets at great prices in the sale corner. PIF bought a beautiful metallic bronze one for over half off!)
