A little while ago, I posted some images of my desk. I also just styled a really poetic desk scene for a shoot in Barbados and I actually think I could style desks for a living…..it brings me SUCH joy.

They are little wunderkammers unto themselves…..at least the ones I admire are.

And around the time the jubilee…how pretty is this shot of, then Princess, Elizabeth, at her lovingly almost disheveled desk. Fancy a spray of sun-bleached pink carnations? Darn right I do. Bless.

    what a coincidence, I was just doing mine, a bowl of roses, a feathered lamp and a three tier studded bracelet ( tribute to sam wagstaff and robert mapplethorpe), two chelsea putti and some post cards, the thought, I just need a nice letter rack had hardly come into my mind when this popped in, the zeitgeist is ever present

    Beautiful desk, but I have to say – I’ll take the feathers over the carnations…(as lovely as they are)!
