Working From Home With The Audrey Lamp

Cupcakes for Breakfast: Lulu & Georgia Audrey Lamp

It’s week three of my new job. It’s exciting and challenging and fun and I’m just thankful to be doing something I care about. Every day is different, which includes my location. Sometimes I’m working from our restaurants, other afternoons I’ll hole up at my favorite coffee shop, but my home base is my home.

Since I’m spending so much time at my desk now, I spent a little time making it feel inspiring and clean. I even found that I even love blogging from this spot too (as opposed to my bed or couch) and working here on the weekends. A job and a space that make me want to work? Makes me so happy!

The centerpiece of my new work space is this gorgeous Lulu & Georgia Audrey lamp. I just adore the buttercup color – it’s bright and sunny, which are exactly the kinds of things I want to be surrounded by while I’m working. It’s exactly the same color as my high school bedroom, which I think is why I first drawn to it. But the gold base makes it feel grown up and classy, tying the other gold accents on the desk together. I paired the gold with pops of bright pink to make the space even more cheery. Seriously every morning I’m excited to get out of bed and work here.

I’m not the only one who is obsessed with how their new Audrey lamp has transformed a space in their home. Head over to the Glitter Guide to see a few of my favorite bloggers sharing the Audrey in their homes too. I just love seeing how Liz, Victoria, Anna, and Caitlin style their spaces!

New Space Dreaming

I’m itching to move to a new apartment. Maybe it’s all the change in my life. Could be just because I’ve been in my studio for almost four years now. Of course I’ll miss this place, but the prospect of starting fresh and decorating a clean slate is getting me so excited. In between searching Lovely everyday for the perfect new place, I’m gathering inspiration for design. Just a few scenes that are catching my eye right now…

I have to make some seriously change in my life. Here’s a confession: my apartment is a mess. I think I clean it every weekend, and then during the week, the clothes and dishes and paper and shoes just pile up. Mess, clean, repeat. Now that I only have one day off a week, I really need to reevaluate how I spend that time. The last thing I want to do is spend it cleaning. And when the rest of my life is busy and stressful, the last thing I want to come home to is a busy and stressful apartment…this does not help my sanity.

So I need to make a change. I need to learn to not make a mess. Prepare my outfit the night before so I don’t try on every dress in my closet every morning and don’t hang them back up. Wash my coffee cup before I leave for work. Read and sort my mail each night. Just maintain my personal space so it’s inspiring and comforting.

Have any other tips for keeping a clean house without really thinking about it? How do you keep your space inviting for yourself? Please share…I’ll absolutely try it out and report back.

Bright Pink Please

I love a great pop of pink at home. (Need proof? See this, this, and this post.) Instant happiness. Here are just a few more scenes that caught my eye – a bright pink throw, statement painting, details in an unexpected room, or simple flowers for your desk. I haven’t been spending all that much time enjoying my home recently, but these are great little reminders of how I can make it feel more special when I am here (and just not fast asleep).

Hot Pink

Happy Friday friends. I’m so thankful this week went by fast, because I need a relaxing weekend to rest up and prepare for a busy week ahead. I wanted to share a few images that have stuck with me, mostly because of their fun pops of hot pink. Seriously, a hot pink shower skylight. Well, ok!
