Outfit to Room...

This week I was sent an outfit to make into a room. I was ecstatic with her choice and it also gave me a post for today, ha! A way more fabulous version of my uniform...

{via Anthropologie}

Outfit to home office {you know the one that also happens to share your living space}...

{via Anthropologie}

This desk with it's clean lines and rustic charm would make any space proud.

{via Pottery Barn}

A comfy yet stunning office chair.

{via Highstreet Market}

A perfect way to sort all those bills.
{via 1st Dibs}

An alabaster lamp to add some pretty.

{via Pottery barn}

A couple of mint julep cups to hold all your pencils and pens.

{via Crate and Barrel}

A few of these would make hiding and sorting paper work easy. You just have to remember to clean them out every week.

{via here, here, here, and here}

A few books to have on hand piled nicely on the desk. These appeal to all my loves.
{via Shim and Sons}

Some cute push pins would help make the bulletin board framed in gold look extra chic rather than too "officey".

Can you tell I am trying to make our new desk area in our keeping room fit in more? I think something like this would work nicely.
