I had the pleasure of attending another West Elm meetup last week, where I was shown their newest collections. Their South African influenced Fall collection is bright and beautiful, but my inspirations were hidden elsewhere in the store.
I have fairy tales on the brain. After attending a Fairy Tale and Superhero Lore panel and checking out a bunch of props from Grimm up close and personal at SDCC, I just can’t shake the feeling that I need more fairy tales in my life. So while I was at West Elm, I spotted a bunch of items that I would include in a fun, woodsy/fairy tale-inspired home.
This flatware is gorgeous and looks and feels like twigs. It would be right at home in a cabin hidden in an enchanted forest.
$39 for a 5 piece set.
Paper Mache Birds
This beautiful bird found in the Seattle store can easily be made with one of West Elm’s paper mache birds and your favorite fairy tale.
