I am really excited to share these photos with you today! I was recently invited by Williams-Sonoma to tour the grand re-opening of the South Coast Plaza location. I must admit I was under the weather, but boy did this gorgeous store cheer me up. No joke. Carrie, who showed us around the store, could not have been more gracious and kind. I Don’t even know where to begin with the experience so how about we jump into some beautiful vignettes that I tried to capture while at the store. cable knit pillow | tripod lamp | tartan plaid pillow I mean. This chair, by the way, is beyond beautiful. I sort of wanted to sit right down and never leave. Do you think they would have noticed me? What’s impressive about the Williams-Sonoma Home stores is that they offer free in store design consultations. And I so appreciate that they have custom fabrics, swatches of wood finishes and rug samples. That is huge when trying to make home selections. I would like them to just deliver everything in this room to my home. Please and thank you. The store has such gorgeous amounts of natural light that pour in which is always so nice when you are shopping. Such impressive kitchens set up in the store. I love the collections of all white dishes. I fell in love with specialty oils and vinegars a few years back. The WS collection is impressive. They have an in house chef at corporate who develops the most scrumptious sauces and marinades. Mouth watering. I plan to try this braising sauce for our Christmas dinner. For those of you looking to switch over to all white dishes, I can’t say enough about the Open Kitchen line. I have the mugs and bowls and absolutely love them. They are the perfect white and such an awesome and affordable price point. And you can’t help but be impressed with the scrumptious holiday treats. The Williams-Sonoma Peppermint Bark is crazy good. They were passing around their Handcrafted Toffee and I may have taken more than one. I’m just saying. It’s truly yummy! I rounded up some more yummy treats that make excellent stocking stuffers or hostess gifts. Oh, and there is free shipping right now!

To book a fun night with friends you can contact the South Coast Plaza location. Do any of you watch Bravo’s Million Dollar Decorators? I LOVE that show. Well if you are local come hang out at this gorgeous store on December 18th! Jeffery Alan Marks will be there at 6:00 pm to lead a presentation in decorating and a signing of his book, The Meaning of Home. I am hoping to be there! I don’t want to miss a chance to see this store again and meet Jeffery Alan Marks! I really want to thank Williams-Sonoma for inviting me for such a lovely morning and for sponsoring this post I was truly blown away. All opinions are 100% my own. *affiliate links used
