Dream Office in Black and Gold



I'm in love with this styled desk I spotted last night on pinterest.  My love of this picture is partly rational and partly emotional.  I see that beautiful glass filled and I immediately think of my grandmother who used to drink a scotch on the rocks everyday. Johny Walker Black.  This she did until well into her seventies. And the scissors remind me of her as well.  She used to have a similar pair with little owls on them.   Pretty cool grandma no? That is my emotional attachment to this image and the rational part-  You can never go wrong with the boldness of black and gold in my opinion and a little Hermes box mixed in.


Pretty, pretty bold right? YUMmers!

  10. Gorg! Really appreciated what you shared about your emotional reaction to this image. So much of what I gravitate to in my decorating really comes from memories I've had as a child and things that remind me of loved ones. It's a subconscious way I think of keeping them with us always.

  17. Oh yes girl, my Grandma drinks scotch/rocks also. And she wears a crown and her bathrobe at night and we call her Queen Helene.

    Anyway......I JUST thrifted an identical tray for $12 so now I need to order the scissors and stapler.
