  1. Such sweet little work spaces. I need to work on mine desperately. Maybe this will inspire me!

  2. all three are lovely, but the dark wall makes the color splash even better!!!

  3. I like the first two better. I guess my favorite would be the second one!

  4. where is the chair from the 3rd one from? i love it!

  5. Glam, pink & gold is killing me!!!

  6. The pink and gold one is amazing! I want to re-do my desk now.

  7. I love the first one. I love the tones and styling. I think i would be very productive at this desk.
