Store Opening Event at West Elm

This past Thursday evening, I attended the store opening event of west elm's newest location on Beverly Boulevard in West Hollywood. The new 14,000 square foot space was designed by Thomas O'Brien of Aero Studios. The event was packed with celebs and design bloggers alike, including Bri Emery, Emily Henderson, Amy Smart & Carter Oosterhouse - among others. A portion of the night's proceeds was to benefit The Art of Elysium.

The very cool double height "living wall" features west elm signage.

And well, if you want a good look at Amy's outfit - but I actually had my eye on Carter Oosterhouse!

Had a great time with my friends Morgan and Christian of Maison21!
