Working from home can be hard for many reasons, but one that always gets to me is the lack of separation from work and home. I kept finding myself always working since there was no real break from the office to home. So to help with the problem, I bought a simple little desk from Target.
One of the most exciting things about my new workspace was the chance to decorate. To me, a workspace should be clean, functional, organized and most importantly, inspiring. I needed my little work area to be happy so I would actually want to use it, which I definitely do! Following the same guidelines I set for shelf styling, I think my desk styling turned out great!
I started with the large blue art work all the way from Afghanistan. I found the pretty hues fresh and soothing, while the detailing is intricate and beautiful. Then I got a custom frame to fit it and to add a polished look.
I think my favorite part of styling my desk has to be all the artwork. I can’t get enough of the cute little stripes painting (aren’t the gold accents amazing?!) and the typewriter is just perfect for a desk. I’m also obsessed with anything gold and/or Chanel, so the foil print next to my pretty pink blooms is perfect. Oh and I got these flowers from Petals on a Stem almost a week before snapping these photos and they are still kickin!
Another important part of my workspace is my jewelry. I have so much of it and it is actually part of my work when I’m styling looks. I use my nested bowls to organize them and I also really love the sparkle it brings to my day.
Finally, I have my Whitney English life organizer and I seriously couldn’t manage without it. I take it everywhere. Stay tuned for a giveaway coming soon!
Do you have any desk styling tips for an inspiring workspace?
