It's been a while since I hit up ELTE. This shop just gets me. Everything in it speaks to me, so much so that I had to take home the very first thing I laid my eyes on, this handsome Vista Alegre Carrara Marble bowl.
Picture below: are these Dahlias the prettiest?
If money was no object and I had a giant house, I would be taking all these home. So dreamy!
Oh and this pair of Scandinavian take on Windsor chairs in a brass frame and lamb wools. I NEED them in my bedroom, stat.
It was really hard to stay focused on what I was there for, a coffee table. So here are the options: a round two-tiered one, a tad too small for my living room.
A nesting gold number but I wasn't too keen on the legs.
A marble top and brass frame stunner.
A two-tiered rectangular which came very close to what I had in mind, except for the silver finish.
And then this, the Boulevard coffee table in a lucite frame with brass corners! I took a pass on this one a few times because 1) I thought I wanted a square one; 2) it's the same size as my current coffee table i.e. too small. But then it dawned on me that I didn't need a square one because I was never going to make the styling in my living room symmetrical. I could easily have two seating areas which would make the layout more intimate.
So after months of poring over stores and websites, I finally decided this was the coffee table. I can't wait for it to arrive in September.
Now on to H&M Home. If you are looking for inexpensive and very of-the-moment decor accessories, this is definitely the store for you.
How fun is this leopard-print collection?
I took home this black and white checkered pillow. It totally works in my foyer. The exposed brass zipper is just so trendy.
I hope to be back to post about the new coffee table and drapery soon.
