Office De-Lite

A friend of mine has recently been hitting me up for a little advice on her home office because she spends 40 hours+ a week in that space. Most recently, she was quizzing me on desks.

So it got me thinking about home offices.

I like a touch of ambiance when I find myself say… sorting and organizing receipts for hours in my office.

My advice is this–light a candle, surround yourself with inspiring art or images or a giant pinboard, get a comfortable chair, get the right lighting–multiple levels if possible.

Maybe include a rug that is a work of art on it’s own.

Put some music on and work it.

Design Finds at OMG, Amazon

What, did you say? Design Finds at Amazon?

Here at are our house, we’re hopelessly reliant upon the behemoth logistics company for our groceries, everyday household items, toys and long distance gift-giving. And recently more than ever I have come to the realization that tapping into the wal-mart of the web doesn’t mean I have to sacrifice my design sensibilities — if I just dig a bit.

So, this year I’m gathering up gift guides with these design finds at Amazon for the procrastinating gift giver in all of us.

 

I’ve had a thing for flat black lately, I think its due in part to the success of the window frame project at the new house. So I’ve concentrated some of my finds on the sophistication of matte black, and I’ve tossed in a little natural wood finish and some brass glam here too.

Pair any of these items with crisp white walls, a warm rustic wood floor and some black window panes and you’re speaking my love language.
