From My Desk to Yours...

If you read yesterday's post carefully you already knew that this post was coming. 

Here is my office space at home...it is a work in progress.  It is one of my favorite spaces! I share an office with Mr. B. and his desk is on the opposite side of the room.  His side of the office has a completely different vibe than mine. Think mid century modern...and it's way cool. Fortunately, the two styles mesh very well. The room is almost complete.  We just need to finish the cabinetry and a few minor details.

I hope you enjoy a glimpse inside our home.

I love having fresh flowers on my desk.

The painting was a "get well gift" from Mr. B a few years back. I have never framed it because it has moved around the house a few times. However, I think it has found a permanent home now.  One of my pen/pencil holders is actually a YSL make-up brush display from a now defunct I.Magnin store. The clock is from Pottery Barn. The little red book is one of my favorite desktop accessories. It is actually a Berlitz English/Italian dictionary from the 1950's. 

I found this brooch at a flea market and knew I had to have it. I definitely couldn't pass it up since it only cost a buck or two. I love the detail of the embossed leather and stylish gold monogram. I will never actually wear the brooch so it sits on my monogrammed notepad...it found a new life as a paper weight.

I had a lumbar pillow made for my desk chair with an oversized chenille houndstooth pattern. I love the fun, graphic look of the design. It keeps things from looking too serious.

Thank you all for your kind comments. The space is a work in progress... I still have to add something to the wall in front of the desk..that should complete my side. I will share when its done.

Sandy - I used Glidden's "Water Chestnut". I tried MANY colors/brands and finally chose this. Is a nice neutral backdrop.
