Work Space Wednesday III

One of my favorite authors, editor, designer and antique collector is Mary Emmerling. This is a magazine photo of her desk area dug out of my design files. She is known for combining baskets, Native American artifacts and black and white photos with unexpected accents. Surrounded by warm country textures on a modern steel and glass table~organized, functional, yet so inviting, enjoy...

I love that stylish desk, I think I've seen it in shots of Nate Berkus's home as well! And any space with lots of gorgeous black and white photographs always attracts me. Great space.

It looks super cozy. I love the black and white pictures on the wall then again they could be sepia toned but all in all very lovely!
