Party!  West Elm opened in Kansas City!  I was invited to the opening night and it was nothing short of a party.  They had food, drinks, a DJ and photo booth all featuring local vendors.  Local merchants were focused and one of my favorites was Ampersand.  Their Kansas City tote for West Elm was too hip and in my favorite colors.  It was a quick walk through for Jessica and myself as we slowly fought the crowd to see their newest furniture items, always perfect trays and latest kitchenware.  I was off to Chicago the next day but was glad I squeezed this in, confirming it is still one of my favorite spots for affordable decorating.  So be sure to go to check out the new store.

The wall behind is just for display but I love the wood texture.  Reminds me of my project for Alexander's basement, more to come.  The picture frames from West Elm are perfect.

I busted a move and it's too bad Jessica's video didn't turn out.  My 13 year old daughter would have been so proud.  www.saranobledesigns.com

The terrance side table is one of my favorites.  Still trying to talk Molly and Ryan into it but even if it's not the perfect one for them, it's perfect for someone.  I love it.   http://www.westelm.com/products/terrace-side-table-h530/?pkey=ccoffee-side-tables&cm_src=coffee-side-tables||NoFacet-_-NoFacet-_--_-

It was about 102 degrees inside with all the people and partying :)  Jessica's hair does better under that kind of pressure.  Thanks for going with me Jessica.  I think we scouted good product for clients.   saranobledesigns.com
