Oh Joy / 1 Desk, 2 Ways

I like so many styles that it can be hard to decide which way to go when decorating at home. One area that's always easy to change up is your work space. Whether it's a home office or your personal office at work, simple accessories can transform your desk from one style to the next so easily without having to change your desk completely. To show you how I'd do it, here's a look at two of styles I'm really loving right now... 

First up, is what I like to call my Whimsy Pop desk. You guys know I love color so this desk incorporates a ton of vintage accessories, prints by independent designers, and colorful desk accessories. I love using vintage pant hangers to display an ever-evolving range of inspiration right in front of me.

Now, onto the more sultry side of me is my Mad at Midnight desk. This one is mostly monochromatic with accents of sunny yellow and shiny gold. It's sultry but not too serious. It includes a vintage bar cart, accent lamp, and dotty wall decals that give the space movement and charm.
