apartment tour: work space

i still have some things to finish and fill in, but you get the idea of how it looks.
i love having a real desk and tons of storage for all of my stuff.

here’s to hoping to actually motivates me to get some work done sometimes.

    I love the pops of blue esepecially in the lamp and that chevron patterned box, the wire accessories, and the fact that so much light comes in thanks to that window! Looks like a perfect place to do what you do. Molly has a point though, where is your GREY desk?

    One more thing…..I keep hearing about the Home Goods store and World Market, nut have yet to shop there. I saw on The Small Things Blog that you and your sister live in the Raleigh area…….Is there a Home Goods store there???? I live about an hour east of Raleigh in a small town with very (and I mean very) limited shopping other than dollar stores and Wal-mart.

      I am wondering the same thing! The wall mounted pen holder is super cute and would be very handy! Love this entire work area, so functional and organized but very pretty all at the same time! Good job 🙂

    We are getting ready for our move to our new apartment. I think this desk might be a purchase for me. My husband says I get one so I can set up my crafts and such. I'm so excited! I'm most likely going to be modeling after this. Sorry for the copying 🙂
