MY DESIGN/ OFFICE SPACE

I think you'll love this update because sharing my apartment is definitely one the the most requested topics I receive! 
Though I'm not completely finished with my office/ design space, today I was able to take photos because my Parsons style desk finally arrived! 
Tomorrow my brother is stopping by to help put some shelves up and then only small touches will needed after. 
A bulletin board, other framed pieces, random office nick-nacks and a decision to keep or return a lampshade... 
I wasn't able to share the other side of the space (the storage cabinet I designed from Ikea) because all the containers, etc which are going to be stored on the shelves are stacked there *mess*.
It is such an incredible breath of fresh air to be organized again, all while having a space that's chic, girly and just to my taste. 
MY DESK:
 Keeping focus on what's important, my computer, agenda and favorite pens stored in a pretty votive. 
Flowers, my favorite candle and a milk glass jar to store small office supplies.
I laid a small sheepskin over My Louis ghost chair mostly for comfort but for dimension too. 
I'm in the process of reupholstering a favorite childhood chair that will take it's place and it will move to the front of the desk.
SHELVING:
 A tiny peek of how I prettily store extra jewelry findings I rarely use, and office supplies. 
OVERVIEW and WORK STATION:
I love the clean, sleek, calming look white gives. 
When I'm designing or making orders, I like to have a clear head and I think I achieved that here :) 
A long work table with small storage drawers, and containers. The shelves will be installed directly above the drawer system. 
I'm head over heels in love with my leather egg chairs too! They're quirky yet sleek and comfortable. 
 I found a light colored hide rug...you can see peeking through. It's mostly white with a few scattered natural markings. 
I hope you love what I've done as much as I do <3

  5. The thing I love the most in the way you design your area is as you wrote...the clean, sleek, calming look white gives.


    Some say white makes the area raw...but I like it !, with properly matched accessories it looks lovely..

  11. I absolutely love your style, it`s actually very similar to my own. I really want a furry pillow just like the one you have on the IKEA chairs (I have the same chairs).
    You said, that the candle burning in the first picture was your favorite one - where did you get that?
    As a college student I chose white for it`s clean look and because it helps me keep concentrated on the work I am doing.
    Anyways, I love your pictures and the inspiration I get through them. Keep up your great work!

  19. So pretty! I used to work in a jewelry shop and we had a huge table with small compartments that had all kind of beads organized by color. People could reach in and string their own jewelry!

  25. The decor of your work space is calming and comfortable but still very elegant at the same time. Usually I find everything in one specific color a little flat and one-dimensional but yours turned out great. Have you ever considered interior design or do you only like to design your own place? Either way, you definitely have an eye for this. :)
