Closet&casa-kate2

who: Kate Arends Gabriel, Graphic Designer and Blogger

why kate rocks: I've been a longtime fan of Kate's eye for modern design and thoughtful typography!

in her closet: I purchased this little wallet at a thrift store back when I was in college. I didn't think much of it at the time, but it has stayed with me everyday for the past 5 years. I only became more attached to it after the gold began to pull away from the material...revealing a pretty blue color underneath. It's a happy accident that has invited countless complements that I can't take all the credit for!

in her casa: Both my mother and grandmother have a weakness for gold figurines. It must be hereditary, because I've collected them ever since I took one of my mother's with me to college. These two deer figures are the most recent addition to my collection. They are bigger than many you'll see in antique stores and look lovely on my credenza as bookends.

Thanks Kate!
