tsg-Screen-Shot-2014-08-22-at-12.24.36-PMWe love incorporating natural elements throughout our homes, and we’ve never been afraid of a little shine. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that when it comes to accessories, we believe that crystals more than make the cut. A well-placed piece of quartz can add wonderful interest and energy to a room, and as the above assortment by TSG co-founder Christy Ford shows, when mixed together and paired with contrasting pieces, it can spark all kinds of inspiration.
