Agate and geode inspired decor…
I am so in love with gemstone and mineral inspired patterns right now, I wanted to share a round up of things I just love with some agate and geode inspired decor! I like how contemporary gets a boost with very natural and organic elements. It makes it feel much warmer and takes away the starkness. I am going to call it Modern Natural decor. There you go, you heard it here first! I like that you can take those elements,add them to any style such as farm house or even cottage and it gives them a new, updated look.

Like these curtain tie backs from Martha Stewart
Or this amazing Agate platter with a gold leaf edge by High Street Market.
I love these gem stone soaps by Pelle
This vignette by House and home
Or these Swirled geode knobs from Anthropologie
I LOVE this tutorial on how to paint an agate-inspired pattern
I think this agate slice necklace is pretty cool from 1chicgeek
Or this pretty sweet lamp finial
and let’s talk about the awesomeness of this rug
I also love this pretty agate watercolor tutorial at First home love life.
And the Aestate shows you how to make gold leaf agate book ends
And the Freckles chick did this pretty amazing geode coaster artwork for her gorgeous dining area.
I never realized how beautifully complicated agates are before your post. You have opened my eyes to the beauty within and they are, really, like a slice of the universe. Gorgeous.
I had never thought of agate as decorating inspiration before…thanks for sharing this post. Opened my eyes to the possibilities, and I will never look at a piece of agate the same way again.
You are right on trend with thus gorgeous post! I always try to include something organic in my rooms and these examples really up the game from just a potted plant.
I swear my parents brought my a geode back from Mexico for my brother and I back in the 70s. They told us it was a petrified coconut and I know it made at least one appearance at show and tell. Wish I still had it!
There is a church in Zurich, Grossmünster at Zwingli Platz that has an amazing window made out of agate stone. They didn’t allow pictures inside the church, but you can see one of them here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Grossmünster_-_Innenansicht_IMG_6435.jpg.
They really are beautiful.
Framing a set of these slices for a client of mine right now.
I am in love with them. One of natures glorious treasures!
THANKS for sharing these awesome images.
