I have noticed an abundance lately of agate accessories!  These really take me back to my childhood growing up in Tucson, AZ when my family would take trips to museums and I would always be mesmerized by the little gems in the gift shops.  The different shapes, colors, and shimmers really caught my attention, “isn’t Nature amazing?” my mom always say.

Needless to say, I am really excited that these geological rocks have emerged from the Science classrooms into our homes!  Not only do they add some color, but can be functional as well!  Take a look…

I was feeling a little “edgy” today and decided to search for some “punk rock” influenced pieces.

I love the look of leather, bold contrast in color, exaggerated tufting, and studded pieces- this definitely defines “edgy” to me!

In all honestly, being such a huge animal lover I find taxidermy a little freaky and slightly disturbing.  Sure, hanging trophies on walls is seen as decorative and definitely can create the much loved “lodge” look, but I just cannot condone it.  Here are some fun and funky alternatives to the real thing that you can actually feel good (and stylish) about!

Before I head out to London this evening, I want to leave you with this… see you after the 4th!

The Greek Key motif, a classic and historical motif.  Its geometric and modern, and it can be use in formal or casual designs.  Its so versitile!

I recently I have been incorporating a lot of geometric patterns into some of my designs, maybe because several of my newer clients are younger and prefer a more modern vibe over traditional?  Or maybe these projects are more casual than formal?  But I have also used this element in formal living rooms- So is there a way to define the Greek Key?

And the final countdown to my London trip is underway… 7 days until takeoff!

Which then leads me to preparing for 5 days of straight rain (according to weather.com) in the middle of the Summer.  But no need to despair…here are some fun rain-inspired design ideas to help lift up that rainy day gloom.
