Even though I don’t work from a formal desk at home, these pretty desk accessories make me miss my home office. The west coast leg of the book tour has been amazing (thank you so much to everyone who’s come out to see us!) but I’ve hit the point where I don’t know what city we’re in or what time it is. I’m going to try to snag a little nap today but before then, I wanted to wrap up the week and share these beautiful new desk accessories from Fashioned By. I love things that are simple, clean and modern and this collection nails that understated look perfectly. Designers Farrah Sit and Dana D’Amico work with wood, brass, porcelain and vegetable tan leather to create desk sets that will pull together your working materials in a neat and tidy space. My favorite part of the collection is the pencil cup that functions like an old-school straw dispenser (but magnetically locks back into place). I’m always a sucker for that little pulling device. You can check out the full handmade collection of desk goods right here on Etsy– if you’ve got a desk that needs tidying, this series is a great place to start.
I’m off for our last day in Seattle and then it’s off to Vancouver and then home to Brooklyn on Sunday. I can’t wait to sleep in my own bed again. Until then, have a fantastic weekend and I’ll see you back here on Monday. xo, grace
