shopshoot - west elm

Hi Every-one,

When I heard West Elm would be opening a store in Sydney, I knew I had to photograph it. Why, you may ask? Well I literally live around the corner and I've walked past the building site every day for the past couple of months watching the building grow.

West Elm opened for business last Thursday and I dropped by at opening time on Saturday morning. The store is spread over 2 levels and this is is what I saw when I walked in.

Even though the doors had just opened, the shop was already crowded with people. It looks as though I wasn't the only Sydney resident waiting for the store to open it's doors.

Upstairs there were loads of images of both Bondi and Brooklyn. I really liked the organic wooden spheres but I was in photographer mode so came home empty handed. I guess that means I'll have to return to West Elm but this time to shop!

As well there were furniture displays and a wall of vases, cushions and paper flowers all in shades of blue.

It's autumn in Sydney and I noticed lots of autumnal shades in the store.

I just loved this mirror and had to do something a little arty with it.

When I went downstairs,
I found more furniture, lighting, bedding, soft furnishings, vases and some items for the kitchen and bathroom.
