The stores open tomorrow and you must go and take a look!
They are on the corner of Oxford St Mall and Grosvenor St, Bondi Junction.
We were shown through Williams-Sonoma first and it was so beautiful. My photos can't describe how visually perfect everything is. Williams-Sonoma has everything you could wish for in relation to cooking. Beautiful Le Crueset, amazing copper pans, all kinds of baking trays, juicers etc. They have it!
The space itself is gorgeous and is set out to encourage interaction with customers. There will also be a coffee bar to taste the many coffee options plus a Food Hall with gourmet local foods.
I do want to sign up for one of the cooking courses. It caters for everyone from beginners to advanced cooks and teaches you basic knife skills,how to make cheese, bake bread etc. I would love to be a bit more confident in the kitchen. Also if you go to the Williams-Sonoma blog, The Blender, you can find recipes and tips for creating delicious meals.
We then moved onto West Elm which is an eclectic mix of homewares and furniture. I loved the grass cloth desk and mirror especially. They also had a chevron rug I loved too.
They also have a blog called Front & Main where you can see the latest collections, design tips etc.
Next up was Pottery Barn. I loved the range of window and floor coverings. There is a Turkish Kilim there I've got my eye on!
They also have an amazing design service which can help you with all of your decorating needs. Swatches of fabric, wood and leather are available to look at and take home to match up with your existing furniture/homewares.
We finished up in Pottery Barn Kids and it was so dreamy! So many choices for linen, bedding,flooring and curtains in patterns I haven't really seen before.
I really loved the Anywhere Chair which comes in a variety of colours and patterns. Some even have slipcovers that can be removed and monogrammed.
They already had a sweet little one for Noah :)
There is even a monogramming station to personalise blankets etc. I think that would make the perfect gift for a new baby. It's done in store while you wait.
Also Pottery Barn Kids will be doing in-store events like Book Club, Mothers Day craft, Doll Tea Party and National Geographic Little Explorers. You can find out more details online or on Facebook - www.facebook.com/potterybarnkids
I was invited to view the new stores with no obligation to write about them at all. I'm just sharing my views on them and I haven't been paid at all for this review. As you know, I adore looking at furniture and homewares and I know a lot of my readers do too :)
So if you can't pop into the Sydney stores make sure you take a look online!
