SHOP THE POST:
GUYS! The desk is finally done!!! Can you tell how excited I am? This was the highlight of the decorating process and I saved it till the end so I wouldn’t rush any decisions. I ordered the desk almost immediately after we moved in since I had been eyeing it for so long. If you are in the market for a white desk I can’t recommend it enough. I loved the hairpin legs and the simple structure. The price can’t be beat and I think it has a cool industrial type feel without being too bold. After that I added Henry (my plant) and the lamp and decided to keep everything white with some pops of color.
After leaving the area empty for a while I finally decided what direction I wanted to head in. After moving so many times I have realized not to rush things. In the past I would move in and want everything set up immediately but then regret design decisions I had made so hastily. This time I decided to take my time and move slowly from room to room when until I felt like I really knew where it was headed.
I decided on a kind of desert/palm springs motif. I wanted something slightly bright and cheery but not too girly so it wouldn’t throw off the overall feel of our place. I also knew I wanted some type of gallery wall situation but I am not a huge fan of the overly crowded look. I feel like it starts to look like you just put everything you owned on the wall, anyone else?
I searched Minted for weeks before deciding on these 4 prints and was excited to mix up shapes and sizes. For reference, all three of the larger ones are 16×14 and the smaller piece is 10×11. I just eyed the arrangement after trying it a few times on the floor and with my trusty handy man (Trevor loathes hanging stuff for me) I think it came out amazing!
I am so excited to work at my desk now and totally think having a happy space contributes to my productiveness. In our last place I would work from my laptop on the couch in the morning because our last desk was in a room with no windows and I had no desire to be in there. What do you think helps you the most?
Hope you all have an amazing day!
