Office Space

I don’t know how you prolific bloggers do it – juggle job, second job, boyfriends, girlfriends, errands, cleaning, email, Thursday night TV, working out, laundry day, getting away for the weekend, and consistent blogging! I hope to get the hang of it soon.

Until then, I will be at my 9-5, suffering from desk lust for a work space like this.

Happy weekend ya’ll. See you Monday!

Credenza Crazy

Now that I have reclaimed my livingroom from pink hell, I’m itching to do some furniture upgrades to really turn the room up a notch. While I love white Z shelf from West Elm (pic), a credenza would better match my asthetic, hide all of my ugly elecontrics and really help me create the look I’ve been going for all along, as you can see here. (link to inspiration post).

So the hunt begins. There are so many choices out there. Modern, no midcentury, no danish, no utilitarian, no Ikea. Of course there’s that pesky budget to think about. Credenzas sure ain’t cheap!

Here are a handful that I’m coveting right now.

The Saga Continues

My dearest love Cassandra over at coco+kelley had her bff radar on overdrive because she posted about my radiator situation the same day I did, without the two of us even discussing it. And of course, being the style maven that she is, she had some brilliant suggestions, which in turn got me thinking about more options….so I present them to you.

Here are additional pictures of my radiator in my livingroom. It sits at the back left corner of the room next to my bedroom door and next to the one large window. With all the natural light the corner has functioned as a reading nook up to this point (though changes might be afoot…) But back to the radiator issue.

If you’ve been following along, the livingroom began covered in pink wallpaper, perfectly color matched to my still pink radiator. The wallpaper is now a thing of the past, and while I’m desperate to have the radiator painted to coordinate with my new color scheme, until I come up with a less expensive way to get it done, I may have to resort to other solutions.

Cassandra brought up the idea of covering the radiator with a shelf which intrigued me. I have zero office space and perhaps I could create something a laptop could fit on. When I found this pic of Carrie’s Sex In the City apartment, I knew I must be on the right track. I heart that show – can’t wait for movie!

I have now learned there is also the option of simply covering the radiator up with custom radiator cabinets like this one. Eh?

Or I could go the route of making the radiator a focal point of the room by painting a pattern on it like they did in NYC and featured on AT. Not being the DIY queen, I have a feeling it wouldn’t turn out so well for me though.

But then I come back around to how beautiful a well painted radiator can be. Check out this home featured on D*S. Maybe the investment would be worth it.

What to do, what to do? Only time, and the trajectory of my income, will tell.
