Rock it

It's no secret I love color.  So when I think of ways to bring natural elements into a space without taking away color I go right to using polished rocks, geodes and agate. 

Just look at the ways you can add color AND natural elements into a design or your wardrobe

Jordan, I've seen some there too! I think they were something like $14.99 each- you totally cant beat that price!

Stella & Dot just came out with a stone neckace yesterday that I really love. I'm just wondering if this stone trend will be short lived and if I will regret having a big statement necklace with it...
