Desk Envy and Guest Post


I'm so excited that Shelli from A La Mode asked me to guest post today for her Tuesday's Turndown. Hop on over to her blog and read all about our Master Bedroom and what makes it a tranquil space for us. While you're there look at her beautifully stylish home. Her blush office is to die for!

If you've taken my home tour you will see that I have an office that already has a desk and a work space. But, when you have desk envy like I do then it's possible to find another space in the home for this beauty.


I've been crushing on the Jett Desk from Z Gallerie, but I do not want to spend $449 on a secondary desk that will be going in our bedroom and will not get as much use as my office does. What makes me so envious of Jett are the clean lines and sleek white lacquer finish. I do not think Jett will be coming home with me though. I just can't justify him to my husband.

I decided to choose an alternative that's only slightly less good looking than Jett. Here lies the Josephine desk from World Market that's only $179.99!


It's actually on sale right now and $20 off the original price. Josephine is smaller than Jett, but still has crisp lines and ample tabletop space to work. Most importantly, it still has "X" shaped legs. She's pretty, practical, and on sale!! I'd say she's quite the bargain at $270 less than Jett! There better be one left for me at the store when I head over there today! Just sayin'!

  1. I saw that desk at World Market last weekend and instantly fell in love. Popping over from a la mode, your master bedroom is gorgeous! Love the pops of yellow you added.
