Do you share your living space with a dude? Chances are you’re like me and dreaming of feminine spaces that just aren’t in the cards for you. Yet, I feel as though the home office is a unique space where you can get away with girly touches. If it’s your space to work, you could argue that pink hues and gold finishes are a requirement for your productivity. There are studies to prove those things boost brain power. Trust me on that one.
This series exists to help narrow down my inspirational interior image collection to define my personal style and serve as a guide for our next place. I don’t exactly plan on getting this level of feminine to fly with my guy, but a girl can dream. Here are the details that I’m loving:
Soft Textured Pink
White Parsons Desk
Statement Metallic Lamps
Framed Art and Inspiration Boards
Sleek Office Chairs
Simple, Yet Stylish Organizers

Urban Outfitters has been known to surprise me, in good and bad ways. It can be off-putting to see relics from my childhood – Lisa Frank holiday cards or a My Little Pony pint glass anyone? – marketed to the younger set as “vintage novelties.” Yet I wanted to feature some great finds from their “apartment” section. While not technically filed in their “rad stuff” section – alongside the actually awesome giant googly eyes – much of the apartment stuff is in fact quite rad. With styles ranging from mid-century modern to edgy contemporary, their furniture and decor are fit for a more, dare I say, mature living situation. Just steer clear of the crazy shower curtains, OK?
Thanks to new blog friend Stacey from Likes to Smile for inspiring me to make this. We’re not boring, so why should our homes be, right? I’m inspired by my recent post about fun spaces, to up the personality factor in even more spaces in our home.

Back when I was putting together an office board for spring, I featured this zebra print chair from Lulu & Georgia. I remember hearing about the shop a while back, but mostly recall pillows and rugs. And while they have a beautiful assortment of both, I couldn’t help but find some great pieces, both timeless and quirky. My favorite thing by far is the set of wooden oval trays. I don’t know what it is, but they’re part coastal, part vintage feeling: the perfect spot for displaying finds from the Alameda Antique Fair or something. Speaking of, that’s this weekend. Anyone going? I’m quite tempted…
