It’s Earth Day! I swear this blog isn’t just about my excitement over holidays. But I’m sure you’ve noticed that I like science and when you like science Earth Day is important! It just so happens I’d planned this post about how to ‘Break Your Own’ geode decor accents.
Geodes are all the rage. I’ll spare you the science because you came here for design, but just know that these minerals are essentially gassy rocks. They have bad gas. But they’re beautiful because of it so we forgive them. Here are some hot sexy pink geodes posing as bookends. (via Lonny)
I have hot pink geode envy now. These guys are like, “I’ll see your amazing hot pink Agate Bookends and raise you an adorable on-trend air plant. BITCH.” (via Earth Sea Warrior)
Then we have this gaggle of teenage millionaire geodes. Huge, fantastic and untouchable. (via The Little House Blog originally from Jonathan Adler)
Geodes are everywhere these days, finding work as coasters, lamp finials, candle holders, wallpaper…you name it. They’re the whores of decor right now (more over, Mr. Owl!). They have no shame. I had an empty spot on the bookshelves in my office and needed something interesting and pretty to balance all of my doopy-doo storage boxes and reference books. I’m sayin’, when in doubt – PUT A GEODE ON IT!
To get a little geode decor in your life you can expect to drop anywhere from $30 to $5,000. This geode with white druzy from ABC Carpet and Home is pretty perfect and surprisingly reasonable at $45. But I thought a $4 break your own geode sounded like an, “In-Ya-Face!” so I went for it. I could air out my angst towards teenage millionaires and save money doing it. Sounds satisfying, right? I highly recommend it. Here’s the breakdown:
Proudly bring your new babies inside and get to work styling! It’s easy to find a home for these guys because they play so well with others.
Now I’m just trying to decide whether to seal the deal and paint the outside gold. Too much? We’ll see.
