Desk Dreams

My work office is in the midst of a major renovation. Like the tearing up all the carpeting, installing new lighting, and painting all the walls kinda overhaul. Not a pretty sight at all.

And myself, being a cosmetic product developer, has a TON of stuff. My office is stuffed to the gills with bins and trays of cosmetics. And my desk is often completely covered in product submissions. Needless to say, it can get a little overwhelming. Not the most creative of environments.

Well this past week and a half I've been doing a major cleanse. Tossing all the old and only keeping necessities and the pretty things to bring a bit of personality to the workplace. It's been kinda cathardic and I'm liking where it's going but I'm not quite there yet.

I've been looking around for a bit of inspiration and I came across these photos of Aerin Lauders home and work offices. They're so inspiring! Now I know Aerin Lauder and I are in the same line of work, and I know that she's Aerin Lauder and I'm not but why oh why can't I have an office like hers?

I'll take her desk from her home office above...that gold z desk is to die for!...or even her business office below. It's so clean and pretty and organized. But where does she keep all of her stuff? Must be nice to be a Lauder :)

Oh to have a tidy desk. Mine always looks like a giant paper creature exploded all over it. I always swoon over magazine picture offices too - I don't think anyone actually has an office like that though.

Let's not even talk about the state of my desk. But I'll think one of the ones posted above complete with accessories please!
