Home decor: Office desk dressed in pink

Having a day off, like today, always makes me want to redecorate my apartment (preferably one room at a time). My home office, situated in one corner of my bedroom, has been calling for my attention for ages, and I'm finally feeling ready to give it a serious makeover. Repainting the whole room is obviously the first step, but since I'm still hesitating over which color to choose (clean white? soft pink? dove grey? I'm at a loss!), I'm at least trying to make a progress in the decorating department. I'm definitely sick and tired of my old beech desk. Unfortunately, I can't really have a Parsons desk delivered here in Slovakia from the US (it would probably cost me an arm), but I found this option at Ikea, which is equally sleek and spacious, but has an added benefit of being a lot more affordable.

And when it comes to accessories, I have no doubts or reservations: I'll go all out with my pink obsession. I'm really enjoying the fact that I'm not sharing my space with any male companion, thus there is no one to roll his eyes at me and tame my enthusiasm for this fun and feminine color. I'm ready to take full advantage of this situation and I've been compiling my list of pretty accessories that could embellish my future remade space. My only problem? There are far too many gorgeous options out there! Whether it's glam stationery, sleek lacquered boxes to hold all my odds and ends, magazine holders or pretty prints, I feel like I need them all!

  1. Gorgeous items...I'd love them a little paler pink...then they'd be perfect. Not always such a pink person, but I'd take it against the black design in number 14, that's perfect balance. Wonderful items doll. Hope you have a sweet day xx

  2. Dove grey! That would look amazing with the pink accessories and take a little bit of the sweetness away :-) I'm not that much of a pink person (it comes and goes) but the pencils are really sweet and I like the little tray (14). Enjoy your day off, hope it's a sunny one xo

  10. That would be really cute! I love that shade of pink! Very sassy!

  11. Cute items! I love storage boxes and trays way too much - I've always been afraid to buy them though, because I'm certain they'll only enable me to be more of a pack rat than I already am. I wish I had an office - the closest thing is that my desk is under my bed. It'd be nice to have someplace to make pretty just so that I want to do my work there. Goodness knows I don't want to work under my bed. Anyways, these are all super pretty and cute.
