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.

Aria's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)

Pencil It In | Working the Pencil Skirt into Your Work Attire, Including 25 Examples with Do's and Don'ts

Starting this week, every Wednesday on The Lovely Side will be devoted to wardrobe, hair, and beauty content.  With summer internships right around the corner and interviews for real world jobs looming as well, I thought now would be a good time to delve into the world of office fashion.  
Sarah, a reader, recently emailed me asking about how to style a pencil skirt for her "somewhat casual, somewhat professional workplace full of fashionable co-workers."  She's been lusting after pencil skirts at several stores, but been hesitant to purchase one for fear of looking bad in it and not knowing what to wear with it.
