Link Love: Green with a Chance of Videos

Post of the week:

How could I resist beautiful green accessories (and matching nail polish) for my “someday” office rehab? I’l pass on the coil slicer though. Oh, home decor magazines! The strange things you tout in the name of fashion!

For the Fall edition of the Colors subscription series, Field Notes is definitely keeping it under wraps, figuratively and literally.

Review: Diamine Kelly Green Ink

Review: Diamine Kelly Green Ink

Diamine Kelly Green

I’ve had this sample bottle of Diamine Kelly Green set aside on my desk for months with plans to be “my next ink review”. Since December. Well, here it is. Finally.

West Elm still sells a mirror console table but its a bit shallow to be used as a desk. Instead, I found this elegant mirror-finish desk at Horchow. Its a bit more expensive than the Parson desk but its gorgeous so fate worked for me.
