It’s Workspace Wednesday, glitter girls. We’re always thinking of ways to improve our office environment. I mean, we practically live at our desks. They shouldn’t depress us…but they kinda do. So here’s our plan.

First, the Inspiration. A glitter girl’s gotta dream, right?

Parsons Desk + Palm Beach Mirror
clean lines and bold accessories.
Elegant Sawhorse + Oriental Rug
our office fantasy. we love everything…but where do the cords go?
Parsons Desk + Sculptural Lamp
this office actually seems doable.
Parsons Desk + Chandelier + Zebra Rug
crushing on the chandelier…and that chevron tissue holder.
Chinoserie Desk + Pagoda Lamps
interior designer Mary McDonald gets to work in this awesome office everyday.

Now, the pieces.

1. Desk. First things first! Several of our inspiration images feature a West Elm Parsons desk. This adaptable style suits almost any aesthetic.

designers love this basic style.
Mirrored Parsons Desk
comes in a mirrored finish, for those who like shine. that’s us.
Metal Sawhorse Desk
go the DIY route with a painted metal sawhorse desk. warning: no storage.

2. Chair. There are lots of cute options…just make sure it’s comfortable.

White Tufted Leather Chair
elegant and functional. dig the casters.
Pink Desk Chair
love the nailhead trim on the back of this bright chair.
Toile Desk Chair
chevron in the front, party in the back.

3. Lamp. Light your space with something pretty, or go for industrial chic with a task lamp. Either way, choose a color, especially if your desk is white.
