Geodes + Malachites

A trend has been spotted both in interiors and events. Geodes and other crystalline structures have been popular for sometime, but they are making a presence across interior, event and fashion. For the traditionalists, you can keep the amethysts and agates on the mantles or used as book ends. For the adventurists, there are stunning wall papers, draperies, upholstered furnishings and even dramatic quartz walls. If you are slightly intimidated, try finding some beautiful malachite coasters, or introduce geodes into your everyday jewelry. They naturally catch the light and sparkle, while keeping a sense of rocker chic.

I couldn't help but notice these trends are popping up in store fronts around. Paper Source has the most incredible hand-made Italian wrapping paper marbled in various colors to look like cut geodes. With a simple twine or thin ribbon, this paper is a beautiful way to adorn a special gift. South Moon Under also features hand made paper "geode" garlands. Their interpretation is a whimsy way to introduce the trend with a softer touch.  Please check out our pintrest board with links and images to help inspire you. There are so many ways to introduce this timeless trend to your home or your event.
