I know my posts have been fewer and farther between lately–I have a few client design projects picking up right now as well as design related freelance projects not to mention children, grocery shopping, life, etc. It’s no more than anyone else is doing–I know we are all busy–but I feel like I am at the crux of learning how to balance it all and just figure the whole thing out. Maybe we never really figure it all out!
After my last post about the piano, I wanted to share these great little accessories I picked up last week.
I was in the Crate and Barrel outlet spending a gift card from Christmas and besides a couple of bowls and lanterns I found these great little brass vases:
They have a cool shape–like a sphere that has been flattened (is this a shape? What do you call it?)–and are brushed brass. They would work in pretty much any style room and the brassiness is soft and subtle so it won’t be overpowering.
This brings me to my next new thing. I’ve started being a regular contributor to Houzz.com’s guest picks series so every month you can find recommendations for design products that all fit a theme. Last month it was owl fabric for nurseries and this month it’s brass accessories to introduce this trendy metal into your decor. You’ll find this vase as well as many other options. It publishes at the end of the month but you can follow my ideabook as I put it together. Just check out the link in my sidebar to see what ideabooks I’m working on.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone is having a good week!
