I’ve been trying to get my home office situation figured out for years. It started in grad school when I had two desks in a tiny room, books stacked (and falling off) an oversized bookshelf, and printouts of dissertation chapter drafts strewn about. Oh and let’s not forget the random tidbits of information taped to the walls. You know, like census numbers by county. True story. That life seems so far away to me at this point, but it’s been over three years since graduating and only recently did I start to feel my office was a concerted effort and not a functioning mishap of necessities and decor…
My first order of business was obviously a new desk. I eyed this glass desk from West Elm for at least a year (possibly two) before we finally bought it and I’ve loved it just as much as I thought I would ever since it arrived.
I’ve been collecting various organization boxes and items to decorate my space, but the recent addition of art really sealed the deal. In lieu of one large painting, which I thought was what I wanted for awhile, I decided on a small collection of related prints. Inspired by the decor of a local restaurant, I was really loving rose gold and a desert/California vibe. With that in mind, I started looking at the minted. website. They had so many great options, but I didn’t know exactly how to pick out and organize what I was finding. Like they read my mind, up popped their styling services (thankfully I’m not the only one struggling on art decor)! For a flat fee, they’ll work with you to figure out your style, what pieces you’re interested in and help you put them in your space with photos of the finished product and all! I can’t decide if the California gold foil print or the let’s get lost print is my favorite, but luckily I don’t have to pick!
I’ve linked to all the items pictured here below, but I wanted to particularly mention this desk calendar. I found it on etsy at the end of last year and I absolutely love it. Each month is so cute. I can’t wait to order my 2017 calendar (it’s not too early is it?). This would be a great gift in addition to one for yourself!
