Monday Musings: Chic Desk Styling

My darlings. The 15" mounds of snow are melting, the temperatures are creeping above freezing and I am starting a new job today. It feels like Spring has sprung I tell you. Aside from my fingers being completely raw from all of the manual labor I have been doing, I feel like a new woman. As you can imagine, my weekend was full of projects and things are starting to semi shape up. I can tell you one thing though, my office is an absolute garbage dump. How can anyone get inspired in a space that has 10 boxes of clothes that are halfway open and sprawled out all over the floor, shoes and documents everywhere? People. It is a complete and utter disaster. Once the ice has melted from my stairs outside, I can maybe bat my eyes at some boys to carry my massive dresser up the stairs so I can get some organization happening. A girl can hope. Once that does happen, some chic desk styling is going to take place.

A chic desk is everything I need to stay organized and creative. Truly. A little glam, a dusting of history and a whole lot of accessorizing is the key any perfect desk. I know you all love examples, so eat your heart out. 

Let's practice what we preach here, shall we? Get the look.

  2. LOVE your mood board for a chic desk...I desperately need to give my own a serious makeover. Its a mound of clutter, papers, fabrics,etc....even my coffee mug is getting buried! Think what I really need is a new and MUCH bigger desk!
    Love the inspiration here....

  5. i work from home about one day a week and i can seriously do nothing if my space isn't in order and looking pretty. unfortunately, we rent, and the office came with a monstrous, hideous desk and bookcase which i want to paint so bad i can't stand it. i have tried to make due with what we have but it is hard. i can't wait to start from scratch and gather some of these fabulous accessories. hope you have a great first day!

  11. I never go into the "office" space...not a full room. Because it depresses me so. Good luck getting yours sorted. Happy first day at the new job.
