Monday with Megan: It’s Diamonds, Darling!

If you’re a girl, than it’s been said this trend is your best friend. I’m talking diamonds. This multifaceted shape has been sparkling on the scene in a big way for a while now, and it doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere anytime soon. So, let’s explore this sparkling trend!

Diamonds in the Home

You don’t have to live in a mine to enjoy the look of diamonds in your home. Here are a few fresh examples of glitzy home decor.

Diamond Doors by Anthroplogie

This is like a trip down Memory Lane for me, as my grandma had these lovelies on all of the doors in her home. As a child, I was memorized by them and would run my fingers over them again and again. Someday, I’ll add these to the doors in my own home. Someday…

Multifaceted Event by Me

Still not sure how to incorporate this multifaceted look into your designs? Why not create a layout describing the story of your engagement? Or your parents’ engagement? That’s what I did a few years ago when I created this page about the crazy day that ended up being our engagement day. I still love this page, because I adore the story behind it, and I’m so happy to be sharing it with you here today.

To conclude this dazzling event, I’d like to leave you with a song from one of my very favorite movies—Moulin Rouge. Enjoy!

  

Cheers!
