    I would LOVE this bowl to put on my nightstand to collect the jewelry I take off before bed – no more searching for earrings that have rolled off onto the floor in the morning!

  2. virginia December 12, 2012 | 5:01 pm

    I would put it on my dining room table!

  3. Sarah December 12, 2012 | 5:02 pm

    Truly beautiful bowl! I would probably put it in my closet – I’d see and use it every day, but it would be out of reach of the tiny hands that manage to find everything!

  4. Cathy December 12, 2012 | 5:09 pm

    Love this! If I win this fabulous piece, it will sit on my dining room sideboard under a painting with a malachite border 🙂

    Love malachite…maybe because it has emerald. And emerald is my birth stone color, car color, window shutters and door on my home color; get where I’m going with this? Smile! I would love to win + if I did I would put the bowl in my formal dining, it would match perfectly with my gold candelabras.

  6. Heidi Hoff December 12, 2012 | 5:16 pm

    I would put it on my entry way table so it would be the first thing guests would see when they walk through the door!

  7. Dru December 12, 2012 | 5:19 pm

    In the bathroom, the green color is amazing.

  8. kbd December 12, 2012 | 5:22 pm

    This is too beautiful to not hoard for myself – I’d put it in my bedroom, on the dresser. A little treat every day!
    PS: Hope your Dad is on the mend!

  9. sandrajonas.com December 12, 2012 | 5:33 pm

    What a lovely bowl!I would keep it on my nightstand so it would be the first thing I see in the morning (sure to brighten my day) and the last thing at night.

    Hope you and your mom are okay and your dad is on the mend.

  10. kmnewjersey December 12, 2012 | 5:37 pm

    i have been dreaming of adding a glamorous piece of malachite to my home!!! This bowl would look lovely in my living room!
    Thanks! – kate

  11. Jessica Cutler December 12, 2012 | 5:38 pm

    It would go on a console with chocolate coins in it.

  12. Ashley December 12, 2012 | 5:41 pm

    Oh, wow! What a great giveaway! I’d love to see the malachite bowl on my coffee table, especially because my living room feels so empty once the holidays end!

  13. emilyallender December 12, 2012 | 5:41 pm

    My grandfather always collected malachite. If I win I’d make room in my teeny tiny NYC apartment for this to remind me of him!


  14. Belle on Heels December 12, 2012 | 5:45 pm

    How lovely!! We’re working on zhush-ing up our entry foyer. This would be perfect on the console table.

  15. Vintage Jones December 12, 2012 | 5:53 pm

    Dining Room!

  16. Donna in Potomac December 12, 2012 | 5:59 pm

    What an appropriate gift considering Emerald is Pantone’s 2013 color of the year. I’d keep it on my coffee table in the Family Room as a conversation piece and 2013 memento. Oh, and the conversation would go something like; I never win anything…or this color is so habitually chic!


  17. Julia Norregaard December 12, 2012 | 6:05 pm

    i love this ! I’d use it on my travertine coffee table, set atop a carefully curated stack of books.

  22. theaestheteandthedilettante.com December 12, 2012 | 6:34 pm

    I would put it on my brown shagreen chest with cream vellum drawers and brass pulls. The colors in the malachite would work beautifully with my Chippendale chairs upholstered in Jasper Michael Smith’s Grace hemp floral (in the Willow colorway)!

  23. Tish December 12, 2012 | 6:37 pm

    Green is my signature color. I’d use this to collect my jewelry in. A beautiful bowl to hold beautiful things!

  29. Lindley Pless December 12, 2012 | 7:03 pm

    In the guest room for sure! It would look perfect on the side table with a collection of silver rattles and ivory frames. The color also contrasts perfectly with the bright oranges and reds in the room!

  30. Nicole P. December 12, 2012 | 7:04 pm

  32. DaniBP December 12, 2012 | 7:24 pm

    I would love to enter this giveaway! That bowl is gorgeous, it would be perfect on the piano in my foyer.

  33. Nancy LeMay December 12, 2012 | 7:28 pm

    I will feature this bowl on a skirted table in my foyer, and place it next to a photograph of my daughter since Hillary says in her description of the bowl that “Malachite is believed to be a strong protector of children”. My daughter has had cancer so how perfect is that?! Hope your father is doing much better, Heather!

    Beautiful Bowl! I would put it in my living room. Debra C. chedeb5353@hotmail.com

  36. Kelly Gasner December 12, 2012 | 7:59 pm

    First I would put it on the dining table with a single green pear and a gold-sprayed holly sprig. After the holidays I would move it to the library (my hang out) filled with Ferraro rocher chocolates. In spring, It would go in the bedroom on my nightstand with a single pink Camilla floating in some water. So many ways to admire just a pretty thing. Hope I win.

    (also, unrelated, good vibes for your dad for a speedy recovery).

  37. Kate Tyler December 12, 2012 | 9:02 pm

    This would be the perfect start to my Tony Duquette shrine! Now all I need is some coral and a lot of gold. -Kate Tyler

  38. Unknown December 12, 2012 | 9:04 pm

    Hope you are taking care and that your dad has a speedy recovery. Best wishes to you and your family!

  39. stuffiheart December 12, 2012 | 10:06 pm

    This beauty would go in our living room on my grandma’s 1940s cocktail table alongside some books and other baubles. I could drink champers and stare at it all night long.

  40. VSimmonds December 12, 2012 | 10:15 pm

  41. lush bella December 12, 2012 | 10:17 pm

  51. Amelia December 13, 2012 | 12:27 am

    Hi! My name is Amelia Hardy. Long time lurker, first time commentor. This bowl is as fabulous as everything else on your site! I would put it on my antique library talbe in front of my bookshelves that are painted a deep orange. I think the contrast will be really striking.

  52. Arlynn December 13, 2012 | 12:41 am

    This is so lovely! And would be THE perfect addition to my coffee table decor 🙂 Thank you! FleurDeLiciousBlig (at) gmail (dot) com

    It might have to move around a bit but I think that in our living room on our pink parsons table would be a good first stop.

    I could put it anywhere! And I would probably move it around . .. front hall table, coffee table, dining room, my bedside table . .. where would it not look fantastic?

  62. The McGrews December 13, 2012 | 2:11 am

    I can’t decide if I would put it in my dining room or my master bedroom? I loved the Nate burkus designed bathroom in the next post! Very inspiring.

  63. Elyse December 13, 2012 | 2:58 am

    Where wouldn’t I put this bowl???:-) I believe it would do the rounds in my house. I am especially loving the greens paired with turquoise and gold…the colour combination sends me into blissed out daydreams.
    Amazingly strong woman,you must be, worrying about the frequency of blog updates and response times. From the looks of things, you must know there is a lot of positive energy heading your family’s way-mine included.

  64. martha_susan December 13, 2012 | 3:03 am

    Would love the bowl on my coffee table….green fruits: pears, apples?

    If it’s anything like the rest of my accessories, it’ll have numerous homes over the years, but it’ll start in a place of prominence on the cocktail table.

  75. am prz December 13, 2012 | 5:01 am

    I live in a small studio apartment in the Upper East Side. My decor consists of many textures in cream colors. I would place this gorgeous malachite bowl right in the center of my beige coffee table. I can just see it glowing there like the jewel on a ring, and since the space is so small it would be the first thing you’d notice!

    What an awesome giveaway!! Thank you, and I hope your father gets better soon 🙂

    Even though I adore this bowl, I would give it to the interior designer I intern for as a thank you for inspiring me to pursue my passion!

  78. Sherèe Lutz December 13, 2012 | 5:32 am

    This is lovely! I have loved the emerald color even before it became “hot.” The bowl would amp up the “art” factor in my dining room!

  79. redazalea22 December 13, 2012 | 6:45 am

    I would proudly display it on my coffee table. It will pick up on my velvet green Milo Baughman chair and navy sofa. Love!

  82. Carol December 13, 2012 | 10:43 am

    What a great giveaway! It would go on my glass coffee table in the living room. When I finally get my entry way redone, I’d probably move it into there. It is such a great piece, I’d want everyone to see it as soon as they walk through the door.

  83. Vanessa December 13, 2012 | 11:08 am

    I have the Hinson & Co. Martinique Banana Leaf Wallcovering (Circa Bevery Hills Hotel) in my foyer in shades of green. The ceiling is painted a deep forest green so of course this bowl would go in there. Maybe for my car keys? Mercedes of course (said tongue & cheek)!! Thank you! Conni P

  89. Lorraine Levinson December 13, 2012 | 11:57 am

    When I turned 29 I purchased a malachite ring for myself to celebrate being a strong single woman supporting herself. I have since married and had kids, but the ring is a reminder that I can thrive on my own. The beautiful malachite bowl would be a reminder of that powerful feeling, as well as a gorgeous piece of home jewelry. Lorraine Levinson

  90. RDR4 December 13, 2012 | 12:07 pm

    Jennifer Weil

  95. Catherine Pitcher December 13, 2012 | 12:43 pm

    I ADORE this bowl. I would put this on top of my gold toned bar car in my dining room. You can see the bar cart from the entry hall, living room, and kitchen, so it would truly have a place of honor!

  99. Tricia December 13, 2012 | 1:15 pm

    I would add this lovely bowl to the new builtin units we made in our living room!

  100. Cecily December 13, 2012 | 1:17 pm

  110. Cristina Wheeler December 13, 2012 | 2:25 pm

    A beautiful bowl that would be right at home on a goatskin covered low coffee table in my favorite room of the house. It will hold coral pieces my children found on the small beach of a desert island.

    Cristina W

  111. Sharron December 13, 2012 | 2:25 pm

    Green is one of my favorite colors – one found so often in nature. I would enjoy this bowl next to my reading chair in the living room. Then I can glance at it from time to time when I look away from reading and find pleasure in a beautiful thing.

  112. Linda Pakravan December 13, 2012 | 2:48 pm

    This bowl would be perfect in my yellow foyer…on the black demi-lune console.

  113. Karen December 13, 2012 | 2:49 pm

  116. Meg S December 13, 2012 | 3:28 pm

    Love this! It would definitely go on my nightstand – or maybe in the living room so I can show it off more!

    Lindsay P. in LA will put this on her desk!

  121. jo December 13, 2012 | 4:20 pm

    said bowl Must sit atop my brass and glass 3-tier coffee table…an elongated oval with the 2nd tier being 2 swing out rounds. Each round part has a green suede pillowtop upon which rest my feet. Best flea market find – Form! Function! and Fabulous!er with the yummy icing of that Bowl…jo,

  122. mamavalveeta03 December 13, 2012 | 4:25 pm

    This is incredibly lovely! I would put the bowl front and center in my “Shabby Chic” cupboard. It would be a nice juxtaposition of luxe and shabby chic.

    Love the bowl, it would be beside my bed, occasionally filled with chocolates!

  124. Unknown December 13, 2012 | 4:35 pm

    Gorgeous bowl and color feature!
    My name is Jennifer Lazarus and I would feature the bowl on top of my living room console!

  125. Victoria December 13, 2012 | 4:37 pm

    Beautiful and chic – I would place this on my bedroom dresser to hold my baubles and bling.

  126. Aimee December 13, 2012 | 4:51 pm

    I would love to put it on my coffee table! It would make a perfect accent!

  127. Victoria December 13, 2012 | 4:51 pm

    Wow, this is fabulous! I would put it on my coffee table.

    I’d put it in my bedroom on my dresser – away from the kiddos! Love this bowl.

    I’d put this lovely bowl on my coffee table and fill it with handmade dark chocolate roses wrapped in pale pink and white paper as a surprise present for my darling fiancé.

  131. Amy Finley December 13, 2012 | 6:28 pm

    This bowl is a must have!!! Chic, Chic, Chic! I am a home furnishings designer and absolutely lusting after this bowl. I recently made myself a home office….imagine charcoal grey walls, white, trim, long campaign style credenza refurbished in white lacquer with brass hardware, clear acrylic chairs, clear glass table, orange rug with ogee pattern, and turned closet into workspace with a pop of kelly green inside ….this malachite bowl will MAKE the whole room. It was part of my original inspiration board but can’t quite afford at this point. Please give it a good home….it belongs with me!!

    This is gorgeous!! I would put it on a table in my upstairs hallway – right outside the guest room – to make a statement.

  133. John December 13, 2012 | 8:58 pm

    Great giveaway! Would be lovely on my nightstand as a catch-all for my watch and such.

  134. Irene December 13, 2012 | 9:23 pm

    Green is my favorite color! This bowl would be at home in any room in my house.

  135. Susie December 13, 2012 | 9:32 pm

    This is the color of my bridesmaids’ dresses so many years ago. I would put this on my desk in my library. How lovely.

  136. Vikki December 13, 2012 | 9:41 pm

    I would place this beautiful bowl on the table in my foyer where everyone who enters would see it. I would love to have this elegant piece. Thank you.

  137. Allison Nickerson Romaine December 13, 2012 | 10:11 pm

    I will give it to my father, who adores all things Malachite. His little “powder room” has Malachite wallpaper. (My dad has the coolest, eclectic style.) He’s done so much for me, so I would love to pass a beautiful gift on so he can display it in his cute cottage.

  138. Jody Meza December 14, 2012 | 12:48 am

    Wow- that is one gorgeous bowl. My grandmother gave me a crystal malachite necklace when I was a child and said that it would “protect me” (she was a little witchy in a good way). I would put it on my bookshelf next to a picture of my grandmother.

  139. candycandoo December 14, 2012 | 12:49 am

    Nothing says the Garden of Eden like the color green! What an ancient and beautiful stone is Malachite. I would put it in a place of prominence in my garden-like living room with leopard and zebra accents.

  140. Jen December 14, 2012 | 1:07 am

    The bowl is gorgeous and I would put it on my coffee table so everyone would be able to admire it!

  141. Jodi December 14, 2012 | 1:58 am

    I would put it in my bedroom with my other malachite pieces.

    Beautiful bowl that would look beautiful in the dining room or entry. Crossing my fingers!

  146. Kara Johnson December 14, 2012 | 5:45 am

    Love this bowl! It would mos definitely go on my desk at home.

  147. Audrey Forrest December 14, 2012 | 11:04 am

    Simply, the best thing I have seen all year.

    This piece would have pride of place on my round glass dining table. Fabulous!

  148. nora December 14, 2012 | 1:21 pm

    Such a lovely bowl! It matches my eyes. Thanks for sharing it.

  149. kimme crew December 14, 2012 | 2:46 pm

    First, I am sending warm and cozy thoughts for a speedy recovery to your dad. My girls were so strong for me and their dad as we all won’t thru a 5 bypass. He’s super good now!

    Second, I think the bowl is fabulous and I would love it on my handcrafted dining table to catch the afternoon sun rays.

  150. schluenm December 14, 2012 | 2:51 pm

    Great bowl! I would put it my library.

  151. Sharyn December 14, 2012 | 3:43 pm

    So Pretty! I’d probably put it on our console in our foyer to collect keys/

  152. Susan C December 14, 2012 | 4:36 pm

    I would put it on my credenza. Trying to be a better decorator – this would be a great addition to my house.

  153. SR December 14, 2012 | 5:57 pm

    I love the colour! I am saving up to decorate my front living room – this bowl could be my starting point!

  154. Lauren Koncerak December 15, 2012 | 3:32 am

    I would love to put this bowl on the large side table I have in my living room in my small apartment!



  155. Whits December 15, 2012 | 4:22 am

    I would put it on my coffee table! — Whitney L.

  156. Elisabeth December 15, 2012 | 4:28 am

    This color is gorgeous!!! I would put it on my entry hall table so all of our guests would see it. 🙂

  157. Portia December 15, 2012 | 5:07 am

    I love how timeless malachite is. This bowl is the most beautiful piece I’ve seen in a long time! I’d give it to my mother because she is re-decorating her house and I think the style would suit her very well. But I’d borrow it sometimes!

    This is a gorgeous fabulous bowl! My collection of stone frogs and turtles I bring from resort places all over the globe is growing (some of them are green). I think some of the critters can live in this bowl. I would put the bowl on my coffee table.

  159. Fernandaandfriends December 15, 2012 | 1:03 pm

    In the powder room so guests can stylishly take off their jewelry while they was their hands…

  160. Deborah Clements December 15, 2012 | 3:25 pm

    Beautiful! I would set it near a shuttered window under a large Alabaster lamp on my sideboard! Happy Holidays and thank you for offering this give-away.

  161. Kelley December 15, 2012 | 3:51 pm

    Wow – amazing color! We have a gallery wall with photos and a few other family memorabilia in our living room. I would hang the malachite bowl as an accent piece on our gallery wall! It’s beautiful! Thanks Hillary Thomas Designs, Chic Shop, & Habitually Chic!

  162. Jessica December 15, 2012 | 4:50 pm

    Love this! Would put gold-wrapped candy in it and place on a stack of glossy books on a console table in my entry hall.

  163. Champagne Dreams December 15, 2012 | 6:44 pm

    This bowl is beautiful! I would put it on my husband’s dresser. It is directly in my sight path when sitting in bed. I am always looking for sophisticated items to jazz up his space and don’t make it too feminine.

    Thanks so much!

    ML Valdizan

  164. Vikki December 15, 2012 | 8:13 pm

    Absolutely beautiful! I would put in on the buffet in my dining room.

  165. Celeste December 16, 2012 | 12:29 am

    I’d put this on the buffet table! Thanks for the chance!


  166. Jill Singh December 16, 2012 | 2:14 am

    I would put the bowl on a white antique demi lune table in my bedroom. It would be a lovely splash of color!

  167. libbyroswell December 16, 2012 | 7:42 am

    What a lovely bowl! I am in the process of decorating an art deco-themed front room (perhaps previously known as a parlour or sitting room, or even as a “living room.”) As a redhead, I live and breathe all things green, but as of yet, I have very little green in this developing room–most notable so far is a brilliant green ceramic square Chinese garden stool.

    Please consider me as a contender in your malachite bowl giveaway.

  168. Mimi December 16, 2012 | 8:20 am

    I would love to place this beautiful bowl either in my entry or living room to be seen by family and friends. Or I would give the bowl to a family member who has a love of all things with a rich green color.

  169. pve design December 16, 2012 | 10:03 am

    Gloriously chic bowl~I would put it on my bathroom on the vanity or on my coffee table. I could think of many spots for it. I love the color~

  170. traci zeller designs December 16, 2012 | 8:38 pm

    What a gorgeous bowl!!

  171. Mireille Sanchez December 17, 2012 | 3:06 am

    What a beauty! I’d put it in my home office on my desk. It would be out of the main family traffic, but in clear view for all to enjoy. It would probably even look chic with Legos in it, though I wouldn’t recommend it.
