The problem with shopping and redesigning your space is that you feel like you’re never done. There’s always something new that catches the light, and like the moth to the flame, you want it.
I don’t know when I started favoring gold over silver, but there was a good portion of my college days when silver was all the rage. I only had silver-toned jewelry. I was also introduced to all the silver jewelry at Tiffany & Co. How I am now buying gold-toned jewelry and home décor surprises me. I thought I’d never buy gold-toned jewelry again. So much so that I insisted that my wedding bands be made of white gold. Who knows? Maybe the silver-toned jewelry craze might return.
Until then, here’s what I’m currently coveting that has given me a gold rush. And it goes without saying, I’m envisioning these in my little office!
1// I’ve been seeing this darling little gold zebra popping up everywhere. Made of glazed porcelain, the Jonathan Adler gold metallic zebra dish adds the perfect amount of glam to any office. Can’t you envision gold paperclips waiting for their chance to shine?
2// Morning coffee (or tea) plays dress-up in this Reiko Kaneko Lip Tease Gold Mug. It also would look gorgeous on any desk holding pens or pencils. What do you think?
3// The Nate Berkus Collection for Target has amazing pieces that are sure to make your space look its best. This gold tortoise shell box holds anything you want to keep out of site. Phone chargers, glasses, contact lens case, you name it, this baby can handle it.
4// Nadine’s recent post on how she keeps her blog and life organized inspired me to go out and buy a small notebook to jot down all those great blog ideas that come to me when I’m not by my computer. Although the one I have can’t be found in stores anymore, this gold cabana striped notebook by Sugar Paper has had me lusting over it for months now.
5// I saw this abstract wall art by Nate Berkus last week while shopping at Target and, oh my word, are they gorgeous. I bought materials to make these myself so I can save a few gold coins for other items in this list. Stay tuned for the tutorial!
6// I’ve been a fan of the leopard print for the longest time. But seeing that this is the second zebra item in this list might be indicating a shift in my tastes. What room couldn’t benefit from a super chic gold zebra rug (similar)? And because I feel the need to hold my pretty horses on the shopping, this will probably be another DIY project on my hands. One of another million.
7// This geometric gold tray (also a Nate Berkus piece!) was another item that caught my eye at Target. I had it in my hands at one point but I didn’t buy it…knowing full well that I wanted it. My husband says that my shopping’s deleterious effects to our bank account don’t come in the form of huge chunks, but rather more like a death by a thousand paper cuts. I make small purchases that add up to a large amount sometimes. Whoopsies.
What are you currently coveting? What would you do with items from this list? I’m curious!
