I Gave In

Remember how I posted about that gorgeous desk I didn't need from World Market?

I know, how could you forget? He was a stunner.

Given the title of the post I am sure you can assume that Mr. Desk made his way home with me this weekend. My sweet hubby put him together {scandalous!} and now he's living large in our eclectic office.

He is suh-weet!

Oh snap! I just realized that "he" is really a "she." The desk's name is Josephine...hmmm, Josephine...Joi, coincidence!? I think not.

It was fate. For sure.

I just found your blog last night and fell in love!!! The funny thing is i was trying to talk my husband into that same desk this past weekend. I am still working but he is in a no spending mood. I love the silver poofs, where are they from? Thanks for all the inspiration.

So beautiful and worth the "unnecessary" purchase since your other desk was a hand-me-down, no? Looks great with the chair also, perfect height. Do you actually blog from that desk?

Bahahaha it was meant to be! It looks awesome, and now I really want it.. see my problem is... my husband. How does yours relent to so many additions?! =)

Ingrid said...

I just found your blog last night and love it! You two gave me a lot inspiration! I fell in love with that dest last week and have been trying to convince my hubby that we "need" it. I love the clean sleek lines of it and you can't beat the price especially if you have a coupon!!

Ingrid said...

I forgot to ask you where you got the beautiful silver poofs.
thanks,
Ingrid

Kelly Krugh said...

Joi! Love it!!! SHE is fabulous!!! :)

Camille @ The Vintique Object said...

It'd say it's totally perfect for the space. Especially ensconced by those great chevron curtains. Can I ask about the cushions on your couch? Are they pillows layered on top of back cushions, or are there no back cushions?

DecorandtheDog said...

I think there are different levels on need.

For example, you had a desk so you didn't NEED a new one but you did NEED one that you loved more than the other. I'm all about justifying!

Angel said...

Love it!

Averill said...

Your study is absolutely gorgeous!!

Megandvd@Beauty in the Attempt said...

I really really...REALLY need to take a pic of where I am sitting RIGHT now. I would LOVE to be sitting there instead. He/She..shim...is quite fabulous. Glad you got the desk...it really perfects the room.

Cheers~

LOVE the desk! Reminds me of the one from West Elm, but yours has better legs! :)

Sometimes you just gotta go for the gold. So glad you did!

It's perfect. Glad you took the plunge. The space is so light and airy. :)

Amanda @ Tall Glass of Water said...

Gosh I love this room of yours. You say it is an office. Do you really use it as an office? Is it more of an extra sitting area? I have a room I call 'the den' where of course no one ever sits or really goes into. It feels like such wasted space sometimes. Anywho, just wondering out loud! :)

I copied you! Thanks for the inspiration to paint my office chair not-so-mellow-yellow. Mine isn't as cute as yours, but I love it. Please check out my post when you get a sec. Thanks!
