Apartment Decorating – 1 Step Closer

I’ve only been living in this apartment for 4 whole months but my bedroom is finally starting to come together. It is pretty much a disaster zone right now, but that will start to change soon because …
I finally got a desk!
This might not seem like much, but a desk so I can set up a home office space is wicked exciting to me. I need a place to plan, grade, write, and blog that isn’t my couch, dining room table (roommate, I’m really, really sorry that it’s covered in papers), or bed. I’ve had my eye on some desks for literally months, and the price on one in Target finally dropped. It’s white, significantly higher quality than their RE furniture line, and the perfect size for my room. Now all I need is for someone else to carry it from my car to my apartment, to clear out the space for it, and to set it up! Easy peasy. 
Here are some pins that will be inspiring me as I get my work space organized and decorated. 

All of these and more can be found under my Apartment Decorating board on Pinterest. Follow me! (PS – like me on Facebook, too!)

Do you have a desk – especially a white one? How do you organize/decorate it?

    I have a white desk, as you know! I like to keep as little stuff on the actual desk as possible. I have a mug with pens and pencils, my desk lamp, and my camera on the top of the desk leaving tons of rooms for papers, textbooks, and my laptop!

    I've had the same white desk in my room since elementary school – and the age totally shows! Haha. Lots of scratches and whatnot. Right now, my desk has my laptop, desk lamp, mirror, and a cup of pens and pencils. There's also room for my day planner. I really like desk blotters for a cute way to brighten up a desk (and keep scratches to a minimum!).

    Looks great, I can't imagine leaving home yet 🙁 I'm not ready to be on my own.

    That is something that I need in my apartment also. I usually sit at the coffee table but I don't have a lot of room to organize things. And I LOVE that bottom picture, it is one I have pinned as well!

    yesss, having a desk is so essential! I made a makeshift desk out of a random table in my apartment to put in my room. It makes me so much more productive! I can't wait to see pictures of the final product. xx Jen @

    Super cute. I need to get an updated desk. I've had mine since elementary school. Parts of the fake wood are pealing off. It has a shelf for a desktop monitor. A pull out try for a keyboard-covered in remnants of nail polish and markers. 😀

    I need a desk AND dining table. I've been using a tv dinner stand table which sucks!
