1 Desk 3 Ways

The best part about decorating a home is that there isn't only one way to do it, there are a million different ways to decorate! We took a beautiful wood desk and styled it 3 different ways. Now, get ready to be amazed at how different one single piece of furniture can look by switching up a few accessories!

This is the desk we chose:

OPTION #1: FEELING FANCY

Working from home can be a beautiful thing. This option is the perfect example of this because it shows that a workspace can be cozy while still looking sophisticated and beautiful. The velvet desk chair was the main inspiration for this design and the colorful artwork helped create a focal point while adding in additional colors that pair well with the chair. The decorative accessories are simple and elegant which make the entire design feel fancy.

OPTION #2: MODERN MASCULINE

This option introduces a unique approach to wall decor with the artwork off-centered. Sometimes a design calls for something completely unexpected, so adding in the wall shelves did just that. It works here because this desk is really long and the shelves give another source of storage and dimension to the wall. The neutral color scheme with dramatic black accents create a masculine and modern vibe to the space.

OPTION #3: COASTAL COOL

Coastal design is light and minimal when it comes to furniture and decor which is exactly the vibe we were going for in this option. The oversized art is the perfect scale to the desk and the neutral colors and soothing pattern on the art help make the entire space cool and calming. Having wall sconces instead of a table lamp helped free up work space on the desk. The styling accessories are kept to a minimum to create an overall coastal cool look.
