Snowed-In with West Elm

When West Elm asks you to design your dream holiday get-together inspired by one of their new collections… well, you don’t really think twice.

Yikes, Stripes!

It’s hardly surprising that two of my favorite retailers have come out with my favorite table linens of the season…in my perennial favorite motif (stripes!) West Elm’s yarn-died organic napkin collection comes in a charming array of mismatched stripes. Anthro’s version is homespun and timeless in its utter simplicity.
