Six End Tables for Under $160

I don’t know if this is true for every interior designer, but at least for me, I’m my own worst client. I think because I can argue a case for any style/shape/color I get really caught up with what my design aesthetic truly is, and can never seem to decide on anything for myself.

Desk Décor

Y’all, I don’t know what it is, but I have a strange new addiction: Desk Décor. I’ve spent far too much time scrolling through Pinterest and other lifestyle blogs drooling over what I’m going to call “desk porn”. These spaces are fresh, inviting and functional (who knew there were so many cute desk accessories in the world?). It’s inspired me to update my own desk space which in turn will maybe inspire more productivity and actually using my computer for more than just Netflix.  If you’re in need of a desk upgrade here are my picks to offer a little more glam in your office life.
