The brass trend has been here for a while now. And there are lots of great examples of white kitchens with pretty brass hardware and accents. I love this white-out look with brass popping out. I’m into it and think it will be around to stay for a while. What do you think – is this brass hardware trend here to stay or a flash in the pan?





Desk Nook Reveal

22nd January 2015

otomihome desk nook 5Let me begin by telling you that my home is not that big – 1270 square feet to be exact! Its what you get for the trade off of living in the San Francisco Bay Area. We are lucky to have as much space as we do, right now!
I’m working from home, most of the time. And leaving my stuff all over the dining room table was starting to drive me crazy… so I decided to carve out some space next to my bed for ‘an office’. A desk nook, where I could peacefully work when I need to, away from the living area.
At the last Alameda Flea Market, I found this awesome vintage secretary desk that fits perfectly into the little space next to the bed! I love that I can tuck my work away into the desk when it needs to function as a night stand. I paired it with my ghost chair, ikea desk lamp, and vintage accessories! I love having a little spot to call my own & get stuff done.
I’m on the hunt for the perfect art to hang on that little wall & some desk accessories as well. Where is your favorite place to buy desk accessories – any good leads for me? otomihome desk nook 2

Long weekend!!! Here it is. Whatever you are up to, I hope you enjoy spending some time with your loved ones. We are going out for a movie (without a toddler in tow!) – which one should we go see? I’m so out of the tv/movie world these days, I never know whats supposed to be good. Here are some fun links I found around the web this week for you to peruse… xo

I am DEFINITELY going to try this recipe (if I can remember!) I always seem to stand in the grocery store and not know what to make. Note to self.

This looks like a fun and do-able DIY. I’m thinking of doing something fun like this.

Loving this botanical pattern.

I’ve got my eye on this gorgeous Arteriors Osgood Pendant. Isn’t it breathtaking? I love the shape and how organic it looks. Its kind of the perfect color of gold too – a little bit brassy and a little bit matte. Since it probably doesn’t give off a ton of light, its probably best suited for a room with a lot of other light sources as well. Check out some inspiration below of how the Arteriors Osgood Pendant has been used to style some pretty amazing rooms. Fab, right?!
