What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Etsomnia™ 347: Everything’s Coming Up Roses


Etsom·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. The surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.

I am not much of a fan of the color pink. I usually find it twee and a bit immature for me. However, when it comes to metallics, I’m 100% team rose gold! Whether I’m decorating a room or myself, I find myself drawn to pink gold in all its forms. While in interior decor, it should be used in moderation to keep it from looking like a teenage girl’s fever dream, when it comes to jewelry and formal clothing, I think you almost can’t go too far! Almost.

  4. I am also a fan of rose gold in terms of things like accessories and shoes. I have never thought about it for home decor. I would maybe use it sparingly.
