Let's Design Together: Amanda Teal

So far I have a desk, chair, and rugs in the new office space. This week, I turned to Amanda Teal to help take a look at my personal style and suggest some perfect accessories for my place. After looking through my website and blog she told me I should seek out the following items:
Agate bookends to hold magazines or binders , Burlap vases for larger supplies...paint brushes, markers etc , Mercury votives to place smaller supplies...pens, pencils, Lucite trays to holds paper , sketches, mail, etc, West Elm Boxes for anything really, Lotus bowls for rubber bands, paperclips
and a John Derian Paperweight.

I took her up on that. Here is what I found
 mercury glass at west elm, photo dwellers w/out decorators
agate bookends from the evolution store & royale minerals

 west elm  assorted boxes
 The perfect lotus bowls from Whitney Smith
Burlap covered vases at Jayson Home and Garden
and I switched out the John Derian paperweight for one like this little beauty.

Love the bookends you chose! I'd totally use that for myself. Just came across your blog via Amanda and just thought I'd let you know how pretty and cute your illustrations are. Will you be having more on your Etsy shop?
