Love Where You Work

For me a happy & oragnized work space in directly connected to ability to be productive. I have been lucky to have space for an office in most of the places I have lived and I can safely say that this new office is my favorite so far. Ironically, a mishap during my move with the table I planned to use as my desk changed my plan completly. First I had to find a new desk, I looked at many vintage options before deciding to go with this new but very affordable option by CB2 and from there it just all came together.

This past week, I updated my desktop computer setup with a Mac Mini, which replaced my older Mac Book Pro previously attached to my 30" monitor. (It's now available on eBay!) A very affordable option I was excited to discover. I also added the orange file cabinet for much needed storage part of the same line as my desk


I found the cabinet on the left at Urban Outfitters who has a handsome line of mid-century repros at decent prices. I recovered the front, which was just a bland burlap, with a groovy fabric by Laura Gunn. Then I added some length to my desk with a vintage children's desk I picked up at one of my new favorite shops, The Sniveling Sibling in Eagle Rock. 

Many of you are familiar with the green medical cabinet, one of the few office pieces I brought with me from Georgia. I had not really expected to find an affordable two bedroom, so I over downsized a tad. So I got to do a little shopping to complete the space. I found some pieces online, like this wonderful typewriting table (etsy) and the chair (ebay) which I would love to get recovered one day.

What a wonderful workspace! I love everything about it. I have also been looking at the Mac Mini. Can I ask what kind of monitor you use?

Hi Tanya, I use an older Mac Cinema screen that I bought re-furbished a while back, they no longer make this model. I do not like the glossy or retna screens for photo editing. The contrast is just way to high to get accurate skin tones and color. It just depends on your needs, so do a lot of research and shop around... you don't have to match it with a Mac product.

Where did you get the fan? Is it vintage?

I have the exact green medical cabinet. Mine is from GA as well. Got it in Atlanta on Cheshire Bridge Rd. I get tons of compliments on it.
