Grace’s Fall Obsessions: The Eyes Have It

by Grace Bonney

Since we’ve been back at work, the talk around our hot pink desk has been all about Fall Obsessions. From what we’re watching to what we’re wearing, we’re all comparing notes and seeing what everyone else is into right now. We’ve already seen Amy’s obsessions (Back to Black) so today we’re on to mine- which is actually a single theme: EYES. Ok, I’ll admit, seeing these all together, they’re a little bit creepy. Maybe a lot. But I tend to occasionally like things on the creepy side and like the challenge of incorporating them into a home without tipping the scale towards ‘scary’. So for my fall obsessions, I’m sharing my favorite eye-themed pieces, preferably with a hand-drawn touch. I prefer that sort of sketchy almost cartoon-like style over the more perfect photographic representation. xo, grace
