I really love this color, and I've also found myself being drawn to velvets lately. Humboldt chair, $499
curved upholstered chair $279, also in cocoa. I think the singular tufted button in the center is a nice touch.
vintage bird duvet cover + shams, starting at $29.99. I think birds (though I love them so) have become a bit overused. For some reason it doesn't bother me so much on this bedding. I think it's because I've always loved that "scientific illustration" look. I also like the forest drawing on the sham. I would also try and pair it somehow with the heirloom quilt as it has that same vintage feel with the keys and blue stripes.
Set of 3 round canvas nesting boxes, $63.20. I wish one could buy these separately, I only like the scissors and the needle and thread.
Does anyone know if West Elm beds hold up? I've narrowed my bed down to "upholstered", so now I've started to look around. Walton headboard, queen is $449. Button-tufted upholstered headboard, queen is $399.
