Inspiration...Malachite

I always had a thing for Malachite, beside its beautiful green color, it's a symbol of life, nature, balance, growth, fertility, and change.  So, if you need a new state of balance, feel a need to change or grow, want freedom to pursue new ideas, protection from fears and anxieties, and when you want money flowing your way, baby add some Green Malachite in your Life!!!  I just did!

I fell head over heals for this bangle from Furbish when I first saw it on Made By Girl.  I new I had to buy it right then and there.  Now it is sitting prettily on my watch case until I find the right moment to wear it.


Some of my Malachite inspirations that I have saved for some time now:

1. I don't remember where the 1st inspiration came from, but it's an absolutely stunning piece of art.  I'm in love with it. 
2. This is a collection from Judy Aldridge from the famous personal style and home decor blog Atlantis Home
3. Faux Malachite wallpaper from Decor by Alix4. Malachite knob from Formentero by Eduardo Garza

Things that caught my eye at the Architectural Design - Dining by Design Show 2011

I'm not sure why I like this chair, it just has something that I'm attracted to. 


 Tablescape by Scandia
Love the simplicity of the design, it gives a calm feeling.   And the branch hung like a light fixture gives it a feeling that we are out in the nature. 


Sorry, don't remember the designer for this one.  
But I love the Gold against the black background. 




Calla Lily's are my favorite flowers, it's so simple nice and elegant.
 I love the color fuchsia against the white table tops.  



 Got to Love Copper!
Porcelain cup stools are from Tucker Robbins 




 This one is one of my faves, by Donald and Katherine Lanziero.
It feels like the twilight zone, it's freaky but at the same time sexy. 



Oh Hello, Angels!
