styling a desk in an awkward space

desk before

so here’s a bit of background, laura and i were neighbors 3 years ago, but she put her house on the market and it sold. we shortly followed suit. laura recently found me again on instagram (by the way, you need to visit her feed…it’s beau-ti-ful!), noticed i had a blog…she had a blog…both bloggety blogs were about interior design, photography, random tidbits of our lives…she suggested a collaboration and i said, “well you know, i have this little desk” and that’s how the magic began.

pretty little things

pretty decor for a house of hipsters

i’m addicted to shopping, i can’t help myself. just when i think i couldn’t possibly want or need another lamp, shirt, necklace, or chair, boom…i see it, and i need it more than life itself. a bit dramatic, sure, but there’s no judging here at house of hipsters

lately i’ve been trying to control my urges, so i’ve been making lists of links or pictures of pretty little things that call my name…the boy would be so proud of me. today i share one with you and will try to make this a weekly thing…although it may make me shop more…again, no judging

i hope you enjoy this happy little list of come hither…links are at the bottom.

enjoy!
