I started on the office this past weekend and have been headstrong in wanting to get it done! On Monday I shared my Black and Metallic Office inspiration board. Because I’m headstrong (aka a chaotic decorating tornado) my husband encouraged me to decide what desk style I wanted before commencing with the other details. He is usually the better at planning in this relationship and I (though sometimes begrudgingly) am always better off for it. But since I like to set a quick pace with home projects (sometimes to Mr. G’s dismay), I started brainstorming desks right after he gave me the direction!
I envision our desk with a white top, but haven’t decided the legs yet. Modern, perhaps slightly industrial, clean lined, and without too many areas to dust (because aint nobody got time for that). I quickly found an array of desks from Target, Ikea, West Elm, Design Within Reach (DWR), and Room & Board that fell into my categories. Of course most are out of our budget to buy in store, but not all are impossible to build ourselves or find a cheaper version of elsewhere. There are so many amazing styles to be inspired by in the list below that I’m just going to stare at them and email/text them to my husband for the next hour or two (yes we’re in the same room..) So without further ado, the ultimate guide to office desks!

Gorgeous aren’t they? Of course I’d be head over heals if a desk — ok ANYTHING from DWR landed in my house, but for now I’ll be thankful that stores like Ikea + Target can provide alternatives to the more expensive options. Although, we’ve talked about building our own, which is something we’ve had on a house bucket list, so we’ll let you know!
Where have you found a great desk? Have you build one yourself? Please share with me!

Ooh I love #11–the Room and Board one. We’re moving this spring and have already begun plans for our office, too! I personally love the look of a long, wall-to-wall “shelf” desk with small filing cabinets underneath, but depending on the size of the room we have I’d also like a desk by the window just for photographing blog stuff. I’m thinking something white & simple like the ones you’ve picked–Ikea always has great choices. Excited to see your new office!

I loved the idea of file cabinets too, but then had to decide which wall I wanted it on for the best lighting. I might still look into that for another wall for more office area. Congrats on the move!! That’s so exciting to have a whole blank slate to have at. Can’t wait to hear more.

Fantastic! I’m excited to share what I came up with after looking at this list for a while :)
So many options!! Desk hunting is so incredibly hard.
I’d be looking for something that’s stylish (obviously) but you also can’t forget about functionality!! Look for a desk with drawers. Then you can always hide junk in them to make sure that the desk is beautiful and clutter free.
Happy desk hunting!! Xx
真的很棒， VERY GOOD. I LOVE IT.
