I heart this post. Big time. Because not only are we sharing three super cute ways to decorate your desk, we also happen to be giving away one of our complete designs! Full GIVEAWAY details below. So the back story is this. At our SMP headquarters we have 3 white parsons desks that line a single wall. And have nothing but a pretty yellow lamp on each of them. It’s streamlined and clean and modern. But, lacks any and all personality. So we thought we would pool our ideas and explore how these desks might look to fit the different personalities of our editors.
The Abby is full of bright, bold color and fun. We used a palette of coral & pale gray to accent the white pieces pulling in texture with our flowers and vintage vessels. We used modern lines and spunky patterns for a vibe that felt feminine & bright.

The Jess is a bit more polished with a palette of gold & navy with pops of deep orange. This desk is for the trendsetting who has a flair for the dramatic and bold. The end result felt really luxe and high end.
