Black, Gold, White.

1/26/2012


I have been inspired lately by all of the gorgeous office design ideas (see Danielle's and Rachel's). First I probably need some actual space as my desk is plopped in a small corner in our living room and is surrounded by blocks, stuffed animals and all of the other stuff that comes along with having a baby. But I dream of a serene, professional-looking space and I'm more drawn to blacks, whites and golds these days. What does your office space look like?

P.S. I would totally ring that bell and have Matt bring me my tea! ;)

You and me both! At least you have some room in your living room for a desk. I'm determined to set up a desk someone but am worried about making things look cluttered.

Lovely! I am in the process of searching for new things for my office. Going light and white. First I have to find the desk and chair and then I'll figure the rest out :)

Oh and I have that book. I love it!

I love this. Isn't it funny how the space we do work in tends to be the messiest? It should be the other way around!

Haha. I would totally want a bell for my A to bring me tea! I love these colors lately & I just recently got that fashion illustration book. Love it.

Selma @ Crazy Little World Of Mine said...

Black is still one of my favorite colors...if I may call black a color! :) It goes with everything and makes things so classy!

I once read somewhere about a mom making good use of a bell like that.
If one of her kids was home sick, she would give them a bell to ring if they needed or wanted something so that she could "attend" to them. It made the child feel so special and fancy and because it wasn't very often, the mom didn't go crazy at the sound of the bell :)
