Last summer my laptop went on the fritz, and after years and years as a Windows/PC user, I made it my mission to get a MAC laptop of some sort. I mean, we were heavy Apple fans – iPod touch, iPod shuffle, iPhones 3, 4, 5, iPads – I figured, what was one more Apple device? It turned out that the MAC computer was about the same price as a MAC book, and so not only did I go from being a PC to a MAC, I also went from being mobile to stationary, and I needed to find a desk to put this massive computer.
My requirements for a desk were simple – white, modern, simple. I had lusted after a Parsons desk for years, but I wasn’t pleased with the quality of this one. I searched for months and months, and by fluke walked into one of my favourite stores on South Granville – Peridot, which is actually on W 14th and around the corner from West Elm. They carried both the traditional Parsons desk & this one with silhouette legs. And I fell in love.
Since this desk was just a temporary solution until we moved, I wanted something that Princess could use in her room afterwards – and this is perfectly girly without being cheesy! Modern and timeless – not overly trendy – I am hoping this desk lasts her from homework to the makeup years… I mean, wouldn’t it look darling with a fancy mirror above it? I think when the time comes to put it in her new room I’ll be adding a tulip chair or a chair in a bright print, but for now it is hanging out with a Tobias chair from Ikea (stolen from the dining room!) and covered with a sheepskin (Ikea!) for some added comfort!
I honestly don’t get too much work done here – I think J is pulling his hair out at the lack of work done on the “fancy new computer” – but how can I with this little guy? I just want to pinch those little cheeks instead of write emails… wouldn’t you?
ps. This office “area” is in my bedroom, right next to the crib, also in my bedroom. Did I mention that I can’t WAIT to move?
