Updated Desk Nook

I finally got around to updating the awkward nook we have in the great room next to the stairs.  You may recall that it looked like this before:

I loved my campaign desk, but my kalah blue chair would not fit and it was visually heavy for the small nook.  I moved the desk to the guest room and the LOVE print back to the bedroom above my campaign chest.  Here’s what the space looks like today:

I used a white lacquer parson’s desk and the space feels much more open.  It’s the “Student Desk” from Overstock.com, which is almost identical to the West Elm Parson’s Desk {except it’s over $200 less!}  The coral pouf is from the Privet House line at Target.  They were originally $80, but they were on clearance in store for $12!  I couldn’t pass up that deal.  I actually bought a second to put next to the wingback chair in the great room.

My sister is a fantastic artist and has gifted me various pieces of art over the years.  I finally have a place to display them!  The frames are IKEA Ribba frames and the faux deer head is from Z Gallerie thanks to my fantastic brother-in-law!

Here is a closer view of the gallery wall and artwork.  The large drawing is obviously our baby and the smaller piece is of the Public Market Center in Seattle.

I absolutely love this nook now.  It’s a great place to work on my Etsy orders, blog, and even work from home occasionally.  Eddie loves that he can lay under this desk; he couldn’t with the last one!  Total cost was $13 for the frames, $12 for the pouf, and $130 for the desk {I used a 10% off coupon code}.  I already had the chair and the deer head was gifted.  Not too shabby!
