As you can see, not much has changed apart from the new desk chair, the Union Jack pillow that I picked up in New Orleans, a yellow Serena and Lily rug I bought on Gilt, and a white West Elm curtain for the window. Oh, and I moved one of the spine bookcases into the living room. As you can see, this teeny 80 square feet of space is chalk-a-block full of nicknacks and items that inspire and make me smile every day. Everything from my favorite candles, books, postcards, vases, notebooks and baker's twine, to my first newspaper articles and my ever-growing collection of A's fill the shelves around me. It may seem cluttered, but everything has a spot and I try to keep it organized. I've repeatedly referred to this blog as my happy space; well, this tiny office is the actual happy place in which I sit, write, work and design. Do you have a happy place? Is it in your home? Or a favorite coffee house or bookshop, perhaps?
For any newer readers who may have missed various DIY parts of my office project, here's a list that could be fun to go back and look through:

My colorful new desk blotter and the mini calendar sitting on the window sill are by the talented Dabney Lee. I won both items thanks to a giveaway from High Gloss magazine! Similarly, I won the monogrammed La Plates coasters through a blog giveaway. Oh, the joys of blogging!
