Beautiful Things #15: A Desk with a View

I have had the same desk since grade school. I picked it out at an antique shop and still love it! It's big, painted white, with carved flowers and brass pulls on all the drawers. It's role has changed with me over time, but it will always be a place where I feel creative and focused.

My focus this month is on the way I work at my desk and the tools that I frequently use. Having a space, however small, that can be designated for work/play is a real treat. The way we use our space is a personal process, but I love being close to a window. The sunlight keeps me motivated and also lets me know when it's time to wind down for the day. I've gathered these images to see how other people create their beautiful space.
