The desk was actually an amazing find from the Salvation Army near my house. It's solid wood and has amazing storage capacity. Before I found it back in November, I'd spent months looking for a good looking, practical desk that wouldn't break my budget and couldn't come up with anything. The artwork next to the door is a silhouette of my dachshund Olivia from Miss Crowland, which I matted with a letterpress frame mat from Sycamore Street Press (again, on Etsy).
Another view of the desk. The floor lamp is from West Elm, but I managed to score it for less than half the price at a tag sale (amazing since it's a new product...). The foo dogs on the desk are from an antiques show held biannually in Houston, but CB2 carries something similar. My husband's diplomas hang over the desk and the artwork behind the floor lamp is from ZGallerie.
The orange "Barnyard" pillows are by Thomas Paul (which I got off Ebay actually) and the orange and red color block pillows are from West Elm. The artwork is all from Etsy: "Keep Calm" poster is from 10th Avenue and the kind of trippy pictures on either side are from Art&Ghosts (Parasol and The Somnambulist, respectively). The bulletin board (covered in Christmas cards, which I still haven't taken down) is from Ballard Designs. The closet next to the bulletin board is home to all our files, my wrapping paper (I'm an addict), extra bedding (the daybed doubles as a guest bed) and a host of other things I should probably sort through soon.
