Today I’ve got styled desks on the brain.
I placed one in front of some windows in our master bedroom so I could have a place for my laptop as writing posts on the couch isn’t as comfy as it might sound.  It was a DAV find that I painted a while back and had sitting behind our couch in our old house.
Styling has always been a struggle for me, and this little desk is giving me a run for my money.  Whatever I try either looks blah or like I’m trying to hard.
I’m looking to these photos for inspiration.
Found this on how to style a desk.  All you need are seven ingredients – 1) lamp, 2) tray, 3) candle, 4) coaster, 5) notepad, 6) pencil cup, and 7) natural element. 
Gonna give it a go. 
What do you guys have on your desks?  Is there a must have or fun accessory I should know about?

    That's a tough one to style since you don't have a wall to hang art or a mirror on, and it's small, so many lamps will over power it. Can't wait to see what you do. I'm sure you'll make it look fab!

    Ha! I don't even have a desk yet, but I like the foolproof method. I'll have to keep that in mind for the future.
