Ideals vs. Style...

On a scale of 1 to 10, how bad do you think non-organic linens are for you? Eco-friendly and health conscious Liv wants all organic cotton or linen bed sheets, blankets, pillowcases, and towels. Cheap and style shallow Liv wants these new lovely linens from West Elm.

They're so perfect! The striped sheets look just like the DwellStudio Draper stripe sheets I've been lusting over, but a lot less expensive.

And c'mon, they're our wedding colors! I had been thinking of a grey/chocolate/ivory/pop of blue color scheme for the bedroom, a la Lily Mae, but now that I'm seeing how good grey, chocolate, and that mustardy yellow look together I think my mind is a changing.

West Elm is doing a whole lot of things right this season. I got the catalog in the mail yesterday and started flagging every page while Jeff watched me nervously. I'd love these poufs (mostly so I can just tell people when they come over "have a seat on a pouf!") and this round coffee table.

And to continue the yellow/brown/grey obsession, let's now turn to CB2 and their spring offerings:

Parlour sofa.  Holy crap I want this.

CB2 is doing the whole organic sheet set thing but they're just a boring solid percale, which is decidedly less awesome than stripes. Oh what's a girl to do...?
