Elte Revamp: My Favs + Giveaway Winner!

Happy long weekend Monday! I hope you are enjoying the glorious weather and I simply just can't get enough of it!  I mean ... 26C and totally tank top, beach wear season in mid-May, I wouldn't have it any other way!  I am sitting at the patio with a breathtaking view and indulging myself in the spring songs from the adorable feather fellas as I write today's post.  What more can I ask for?  

Now if you want to take this beautiful scenery into your home, you have got to check out the newly renovated showroom at Elte.  Serene, elegance, and divine, here is a timeless classic collection in a soft, fluffy palette of pale neutrals.  The elegant dining table offers generous room to seat 4-6 comfortable, while the glass top design keeps the space light and airy despite of its size.  The chrome dining table base adds sparkles and echoes the grouping of mirrored artwork above the sumptuous sideboard.

Don't you just want to wrap up this sensational bedroom + seating vignettes and take it right to your own home?  I do, if Chris will let me.   I love the scallop shape headboard with nailhead details, the romantic sensibility of the magnificent crystal chandelier, and the graceful slipcovered wingback with a relaxed, feminine touch.

On the other hand, I know this masculine, refined rustic range cabin collection will strike a solid seal of approval from Chris.  The classic chesterfield sofa in rich navy, the natural wood + wrought iron coffee table, and the touches of black via the armchair and the lantern-style chandelier, this is a living room vignette Chris will love.  As for me, I heart it all plus the irresistible upholstered bed and the captivating art on the gallery wall.

You all know I also love a healthy dose of bright, vibrant hues in my spaces.  Here are some bold, shimmery jewel tone accent pieces and accessories I would love to take home.

The rug and broadloom department is every bit as beautiful and inspiring as the furniture collections at Elte.  Its gallery-like layout and display showcases the couture collection and one of a kind silk orchid rugs perfectly to stimulate our visual senses.  A tour of the rug department is truly an experience you won't want to miss.

Ahh ... the lighting department. My style-craving heart skipped a beat the moment I walked in this section.  Whether you are looking for a ceiling fixture, a pair of sconces, table or floor lamps, Elte has got your covered.  So many gorgeous pieces and I am most impressed with the flash mount options available.  Flash mount fixtures are usually not my cup of tea due to the overwhelmingly "popular" boob lights at many homes.  Well ... NOT ANYMORE thanks to Elte!

With over 200,000 square feet of sensational vignettes to take in, your visit to Elte may well turn into a day long tour.  Determine to look after your every need, Elte has also renovated the cafe with an edgy, industrial style to satisfy all of our senses.

  2. Hip, Hip, Hooray! Thank you Tim for the chance to win and Chris for making it my lucky day. My other favourite pick was a show wood-chair with white linen on the front and houndstooth on the back. It would last 5 minutes in my house with kids but it was SO lovely.

    I am excited to go back for a visit. Thank you Elte!

    Congratulations Chris. Glad you both had a great weekend.

    1. Thanks Trio! Your other pick sounds fantastic and perhaps you can put it in your master bedroom (off limit to the kids). Maybe we will have to go shop at Elte together soon!
