malachite madness

ICDC has a slight (ok, some may say unhealthy) obsession with the mineral malachite (pronounced: mala-kite).  It has such a rich and stunning texture - and it is a perfect transitional color into the fall.  Beyond just the polished stone, this pattern can be applied to fabrics, rugs and wallpaper.  It can even be painted on furniture.




It's quite clear that ICDC and the fabulous Tony Duquette (also known for saying "more is more..") would have been great friends.  If possible, ICDC would wrap an entire room in malachite.  Duquette, in many cases, actually did.  Or wear it.
