WORKING FROM HOME

While I loved every minute of my week in New York City, I’m really happy to be back at home. Don’t get me wrong. I’m always up for a hotel stay (and maybe a little room service?), but after a couple of days, I was longing for a night in my own bed, and, even more, my own office space. Since my big job change last month, I’ve been working from home a lot more; so, it’s been really important that I have a work space in my apartment that is both functional and inspiring. With so much of my time spent right here at this desk, it really just needs to be a place that I enjoy working day after day. Here’s a peek at some of my favorite details from the space.

Fresh flowers are a splurge – but well worth it, in my opinion! And these white cups from Poppin help keep my pens organized.

A Jonathan Adler pillow adds some necessary color to my desk chair.

A few of my favorite coffee table books (Hitchcock Style is a must have!) and this adorable vintage giraffe from High Street Market. How cute is he?

This book provides instant inspiration! Plus – it brings me back to my days of crayons and coloring books.

My turquoise vases from Design Darling, and my favorite part – the golden piggy bank!
