A week ago I had the pleasure of speaking at West Elm in Roseville, CA with two design colleagues and friends, Rebecca Ward and Jennifer Fagalde.  We were asked to talk about our top five favorite things in the West Elm line – very easy for us to do as we all agreed it is one of our favorite places to shop for accessories and accent pieces for our projects.

I talked about integrating the contemporary look found with West Elm pieces into traditional environments and I demonstrated by using a traditional French Berger arm-chair of my own and placing it into a dining setting fitted with West Elm’s Parsons Table.  By mixing and blending contemporary fabrics, furniture styles with traditional lighting and accessories and furnishings we can create a look that is rich in texture and personal history.
