I think that in decorating your home, and in life in general, it is the attention to detail that makes all the difference. What about a bouquet of pencils for your desk? My favorite online stationers Iomoi has the mother lode of pencils in every color imaginable. Put them in a beautiful little container like a silver mint julep cup, a marbled paper pencil holder, or an especially pretty coffee mug. The lovely vignette above is by Ruthie Sommers. Make the ordinary extraordinary.
