Darling Desk Spaces

Pretty desk example: lots of white, organized writing utensils, chic lamp, thin file bins, printed chair, hot pink tree branches that display photos.

In the spirit of all the hours to be spent at our desks doing homework this fall... here are some inspiring workspaces to help you turn your desk into a place you won't mind spending a few hours each night.

A totally uncluttered desktop... ahhhmazing.

Gorgeous vintage desk. Elegant lamp. Endearing accessories.

A dining table can also serve as a desk. Storage drawers and shelving can be tucked underneath. You'll be left with a lot of surface space for homework, scrapbooking, crafts, art, etc. Love that French message board, too.

I love the mix of modern (desk, chair), vintage (phone, photo), and pattern (wallpaper, lamp shade) in this corner.

Daisies instantly cheer up a desk top. And I'm envious of that pretty organizer with all its nooks for notebooks, folders, and the such.

One of my all time favorite desk spaces I've found on the internet. I love the gray walls, black lamp base, plain white lamp shade, and huge bulletin board.

Let the sun shine in! Look at how a bright white space is illuminated. And look at those pretty butterflies---what a cute detail!

A young, hip space that encourages creativity and productivity.

I love my desk because it has a large amount of white, which is nice. And also, the window is positioned so I just get the winter sun, but it doesn't shine on the computer screen. It's perfect.
Geesh Jessica, I found you some hours ago and I cannot stop reading! Great job you're doing here. I'm becoming a fan. Amore all the way :)


DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done. I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia .

Penny's Apartment | Big Bang Theory

Aniela, a lovely reader from Germany, sent me an email requesting advice on recreating the style of Penny's apartment on Big Bang Theory. 

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
