I started my West side visit with a trip to one of my old haunts, West Egg Cafe. I used to eat at this place all the time and I even had a show of my paintings there once. They have moved locations in the recent past (just down the street) and their new digs are definitely leaning more toward a clean and modern look. There are a lot of things I love about the design of the new place but personally I miss the old location, it was a little more rustic and a little less sleek. I feel like they lost a bit of their magic when they moved however it will always be one of my favorite places to have breakfast.
|I love that the water comes in these cool bottles and that the silverware and napkins come in numbered wooden trays|
|The interior definitely feels a bit colder than it did at it's old location.|
|LOVE this bar though :-)|
My next stop was to the new-ish plant store Garden. This is the store that went in to West Egg's old location. It's a little pricey as plant stores go but they have some really cool stuff and I just so happened to have a scout mob for for Garden so I was able to walk away with two new succulents for the price of one!

Of course I had to finish my trip to the West side with a visit to the relatively new Anthropology store that has opened up there, talk about inspirational! There are a ton of other great places on that end of town that I didn't have time to go to on this particular day but I will absolutely be back in the near future. Next time you have a day off and are in need of some design inspiration I highly recommend hitting up this area of town, it will probably always be my favorite part of Atlanta.
