We’ve had an old mahogany desk for years and just recently moved it to a nook in our house, that likes to function in multiple ways, i.e. home office, sitting area, and more…
Check out how I styled one desk, same spot for three totally separate functions and looks.
Sure, a desk can be used to study, etc. But why not as a self serve bar area?
I simply took away the chair, folded some bright colored kitchen towels into the drawers–
and loaded up on our favorite bar items
a big aluminum tray with leather handles anchors bottles, ice bin, glasses and more
Next a reflective sitting area, focused on things black and white and, well, cool all over.
It’s fun to play with light
and i loved clipping this old black and white of my Nana driving my Mom & Aunt and Uncle around back in the day to this old trophy light that I also love and as you can see made it into all the vingettes
Finally, of course we use the area/desk in a typical fashion too for homework, art & projects, bill paying, blog crafting, etc.
One of the keys to making this type of function aesthically pleasing is to keep it simple and focus on a few special things that speak to you, like these sweet pencils
and this white porcelein stallion always looks like a fresh pop of design
There you have it.
Which do you like best?
