A Little Bit of Office Envy

 I’m coveting these office spaces and I don’t care who knows it. 

Since rearranging my cute little space last week, I’ve been itching to create a more formal, at-home work area where I can actually focus. I don’t know about you, but using my mini-sofa as a makeshift work space just isn’t cutting it (I simply can’t avoid the temptation of turning on the TV, making my productivity instantly plummet by about 87%).

I’m loving the crisp white-on-white or wood-on-white office spaces below. Seriously, how lovely are they?! Fresh, crisp, and ultra feminine. And, while I don’t have the space to decorate an entire office in this fashion, I definitely think I can pull off a desk-area.

 What do you think of the styles below?

I adore the gold + pink accents against the white. Tres chic!

  I’m really loving how the hint of wood brings a bit of warmth to an otherwise cool space. Also digging the white frames against the white wall—a neat way to add dimension without distraction.

White, gold, pink, AND a chalkboard background with a shelving space?! The epitome of feminine and functional.

During my own quest to mix feminine pieces with desk function, I located a handful of ‘splurge’ pieces and ‘steal’ pieces I think could easily be used to recreate the looks above. Christmas presents, anyone? 

                                                 I love the warmth and overall simplicity of both chairs, but I will happily forgo the $1160                                                           required to splurge in favor of the $140 steal.

 This is tough because I LOVE  the simple-yet-chic look of the stainless steel against the white, but with a nearly $2,000 price tag on the splurge, the Target steal gives a similar effect at a reasonable price a bargain hunter like myself will appreciate. I’d even consider replacing the knobs with something like these brass plated antique drawer pulls for an extra hint of gold.

So now, voila!!! My personal interpretation of a perfect setup for a chic desk space. Obviously, I am still dreaming on a handful of these items (a $400 desk clock? Nooo-thank-you!) but a lot of these pieces actually ring in at a super reasonable price point. You are welcome, dear bank account.

I think I would be inspired to get some work done at this desk, would you?
