I have been using the same desk since I was probably ten years old. That is 15 long years of use and I have definitely outgrown it. It does not go with the style that I’ve been working with so it is definitely time for a new one. I think that If I had a new desk I would be more inspired to work and to get stuff done which is a major, major plus. I think a white desk with some type of drawers or maybe even a glass top are styles I lean towards and would fit in with all my other furniture. All of these desk setups are causing some major desk envy and giving me some serious inspiration. Which is your favorite?
When I was young I loved making things for my bedroom and always added to it and tried to make it better. This is still true today. I love trying to make my bedroom a calm and beautiful space to spend time. Gathering little elements you love can be a great way to infuse your style into a space. My favorite aspect of my room is the color of my walls. I absolutely love the mint green walls. The color is so calming that I think that no matter where I live, I will want to paint my bedroom this color. One thing I also love is combining color with white, I’ve definitely focused on this in the styling of my bedroom. Most of my furniture is white and I love how it creates a clean crisp starting point for adding in more color.
This bedspread is my most favorite that I’ve ever owned. I LOVE flowers and this combination of white with black and gray dotted flowers really gives me a clean palate for all of the other colors in my room.
These flags were something I made in order to bring more color to an otherwise blank wall. I easily made them with paper and string and I think they add a really cute pop of color to my space.
Combining these white curtains with my white furniture gives a really nice backdrop to the rest of my bedroom. They are the perfect amount of opaque versus transparent.
Another element I have a lot of in my room are white figurines. I have three owls and this whale. I think elements like these add personality and quirkiness to a space to make it reflect your personality in a unique way. I think sticking to one color for these elements keep them from getting too out of control and taking over the style of a space.
