The Ultimate Guide to Office Desks

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!

Petite Modern Life

I'm Karisa. I live just outside of Seattle with my husband Michael {Mr. G}, our two cats, Rue and Archimedes, and our new Australian Shepherd pup in crime, Moose. We are do-it-yourself enthusiasts. I'm the dreamer, he's the strategist, and teamed up we get it done. In January 2014 we purchased our first house! The many adventures of remodeling, decorating, and inevitable redecorating will be documented here. I was born and raised in the PNW & I love the PNW life. Mountains, lakes, rivers, ocean, trees, rain, and sun: every sight & season has its own flavor & tune. It inspires in me activity, coziness, and sprees of creativity. I'm rather obsessed with white paint, natural light, homemade pizza, and a glass of red wine.
