Grace’s Fall Obsessions: The Eyes Have It

gracecallobsessions
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

    I can see why you’re into eyes. I love them in jewelry (they’ve been a theme for centuries) but decor is pretty new. Love the mug. Thanks Grace.

  2. Regina says:

    I’m obsessed with eyes in art, jewelry, decor…great post!

  3. I love eye symbolic so mych, it’s a native american symbol. It’s beautiful, I have a tattoo with a eye like the phone case. Beautiful items !

  5. Hmmm, I am not so sure about eyes normally, but I have to say there are some pretty items in there – such as the big plate! x Fem

    Not sure what I think, I feel like I was being watched all the time, yet I really like it.

  11. Amy Smith says:

    I haven’t thought about using Eye decors in decorating my house. But when I saw those gorgeous ceramic eye dishes and also the eye planters and bowl they look like they will fit well with the theme that I had in mind for my dining area.

  12. Dan Denault says:

    Wow…that’s really “eye” catching. Seriously, I like the coffee mug, very creative collection you put together!
