I got this West Elm desk in a desk swap with a good friend. She needed a huge desk for her sound equipment, and I wanted something a little daintier. It didn't hurt that I have an obsession with white furniture. I slid my old DIY makeover old chair new chair under along with a cheap Ikea floor mat.
I added a few pretty vases and hung up a couple of etsy prints. The first documented here, the second an etsy find by Simply Hue Designs.
I adore the colors and the symmetry of this print. It also makes me think of packing up and jetting off on some fabulous vacation (a girl can dream). The photo in the silver frame below the hanging picture is one of my brother, sister, and I. This picture was taken by a good friend of the family and I cherish it not only because she took it, but because we so rarely get the chance to all be together. This year's Christmas will be one of those occasions and I'm so pumped! My mom, dad, and sister will all fly to Los Angeles on Christmas Day to spend time with Tim and me. I've been brainstorming all sorts of holiday decor ideas. I really want to make this year special. It's the first Christmas we'll be hosting in our beloved apartment and I want to make it feel as homey and cushy and warm and squooshy as possible.

*Also big news, we bought a dining table and chairs last night!! This has been one HUGE To Do on my list that now has a giant red checkmark through it! Admittedly, it needs a little work and I'll be posting the before and afters as soon as I can get to down to business on it.
