It’s in the Details: Arroyo Collection by Amenity

0 Flares 0 Flares ×


Now that I have a whole apartment to decorate, I’ve begun to notice a trend. I never finish one room before trying to move on to the next. The furniture is mostly there (except for the living room, thanks to a move-in mishap), and I’ve even put up window treatments. But none of the rooms feel “finished.”

What’s missing is those beautiful little details that give a room personality. The decorative touches that that it from a room full of stuff to a well-designed space. Amenity’s brand new Arroyo collection is filled with those touches.

It includes square napkin rings that double as placeholders when you’re entertaining, blocky candleholders and soy pillar candles to go inside them, two beautiful tray styles, salt and pepper shakers and a salt and pepper block. The clean, geometric lines are right up my alley, and in my own dining room, the dark tones of the walnut would be a beautiful contrast to my blonde wood dining table. And even though I rarely entertain, I’m thinking about how much fun I could have with those placeholders during Christmas dinner with my family.


They’d also make some pretty awesome gifts for your favorite decor-loving hostess (or host). I’ve always been a fan of Amenity, but whenever they add new beautiful pieces like these to their repertoire, my love for the company soars even higher.

    Surely anything to do with hardwoods – certified, sustainable or as green as a bad Sunday morning – is by definition not cool. Just the vey look of hardwood in the 21st century speaks bad karma. Hardwood is uncool.

    @Mandi Anytime.

    @Peter I’m not sure why you would say that, but everyone is entitled to their own opinion, right?
