I love a good pill motif. I’ve been asked in the past if it’s alluding to something (recreational drug use? being medicated?) Nah, I just really like them and think they’re fun. Blame Jonathan Adler? Damien Hirst? Stephanie Roberts? I think they’re cute, colorful, and just a little bit irreverent… that’s really all it is.
Pretty Little Pills
I have and love these brass pill boxes so much. They were my Christmas gift to myself last year. I polish them regularly (with this stuff, a TIBAL find… it’s magic!) I keep Viagra and Ambien on my nightstands and Quaalude on my coffee table. I’m also obsessed with this yellow acrylic pill sculpture which was generously gifted to me by the JA team as they know how much I love my pill art. It moves around my apartment (I am always switching things up) but right now it’s front and center on my coffee table. And on the accessories front, my Chill pill necklace is one of my fav layering necklaces.
ALSO we do just need to talk about my girl Stephanie Roberts for a minute. She’s one of my favorite instagram follows and her pill coasters (above!) are the best. A lot of people have been knocking her off on Etsy, etc. but hold out for the real deal. She puts new items in her shop every month and while they do sell out in minutes it can be done. I recommend turning on instagram post notifications for her and logging into her site ahead of time. It’s all about the thrill of the chase!
