While we were at Crate and Barrel, I came across this really pretty Ainsworth Walnut Desk.
So of course I started imagining it in the office/library we're eventually going to build in the formal living room, a smallish room off of the entry. For the moment, I want something crisp and clean and sort of modern with classic elements.
Here's what I came up with.
Ok, not totally minimal. I can't help but layer. I feel like there's a lot of different things going on here, but it would be cozy and still fresh.
Of course, this probably won't happen until 2015 since we have a few other big things we're doing in 2013. But I'm actively campaigning for the desk because I can't stop thinking about it. I'll let you know how it turns out ;)
P.S. Is it not so weird to write 2013??
P.P.S. Downton last night almost made me rethink my desire for more contemporary clean lines in my house.
