Whether displayed on their own, in a case or hanging pendulum, in place of fireplace logs (as we did for a recent client) or as a full-blown crystal grid (A fun DIY project whether you’re into crystals for the healing properties or merely the aesthetic), we love crystals because they’re natural and decorating with them is entirely personal. Crystals are beautiful natural accessories we use to ground and set the intention of the space. Here are the crystals we like to put in each room of the home:
