Dreamy Desk


Holly Mathis recently turned her breakfast space into a desk space. It's visible from the front door, so it's also pretty. A pair of spray-painted lamps (with new shades) from the thrift store, a linen skirt, file boxes from Wal-Mart, and a few pretty accessories do the trick.


Between the kitchen and dining room, the desk would also make a great buffet when cleared.

I am loving this skirted desk! I love the flanking lamps- and the tray is fantastic! (I grabbed one of these trays from Target and adore it!) Thanks for sharing such a lovely and functional nook!

I've been drooling over this for a few days since she posted it. I love everything about it and I adore Holly's style.

Oh, I am in love with the lamps. We need lamps for our new place, so I am on the hunt. Great inspiration! And thanks for the intro to her blog.

{Loved running into you and your adorable family the other night! I must come over and visit.}

That is so pretty. ;) I need to vamp up my desk. Right now it's a landing place for junk mail and other odds and ends. Boo. Thanks for sharing!

Hi!

I came across your blog as I was searching for paint colour ideas. And I am SO glad I did!!! I haven't enjoyed reading a blog this much in ages. And you've given me a ton of fresh inspiration. Thank you so much!

Jennifer! Thanks for directing me to Holly Mathis' blog. I'd never been there before and just added her to my blog roll. I hope little Elliot is doing well.

Loving the skirted desk idea! I've been contemplating doing the same thing with my workspace. Yours certainly makes it more compelling to do so!
