Reiko Kaneko Tableware

To say I am completely obsessed with Reiko Kaneko is an understatement.  I just read about her in this month’s Lucky, immediately logged onto the website and have yet to close the page.  My adoration of all things gold has been alive and kicking for as long as I can remember and I’m finding a theme in my home decorating with equal parts luxury and witty.  There’s something about achieving that fine line that creates a well-kept, but still comfortable and inviting atmosphere.

Reiko Kaneko completely got it right.  Her uber professional ceramics with just the right touch of fun instantly moved them to the top of my lust list.

Magazine Holders

To say I get a lot of magazines is an understatement.  They have been a place of inspiration and a pleasure source since before I can remember and they are actually the reason this blog is named “ear-marked”.  I spent hours of my childhood flipping through them, turning down – or ear-marking – pages of things I had to have.

Yes, it’s true that most of these things were never purchased, but in the moment, the possibility seemed real.  What has resulted is a timeline of things I have loved.  A while ago, after realizing going from one end of my apartment to the other was more like swimming through Lucky’s and Elle Decor’s, I decided to invest in a large straw basket and promised myself I would keep my collection to the contents of it.  I started tearing out pages and filing them instead of keeping whole magazines – except for the ones that were so special just could not be thrown away.

Well, my basket looks more like a game of magazine Jenga at this point and is literally about to topple over.  What’s wrong with two baskets anyway?
