Vanity Fair profiled some famous desks of big shots in the entertainment world. I thought it was fun and interesting typically their desk is not what you would think it would be. What’s your desk look like?  Mine unfortunately is NOT it a picture worthy state…maybe tomoorrow!

Oh Martha, yours isn’t nearly as big as I thought it might be. But of course it’s perfectly organized

Lorne Micheals is full of nostalgic items and steps from it all.

Well Oprah’s is actually pretty much like you would think it to be, tidy and ful of very expensive things I’m sure.

Here a few good desk ideas for you.

I love it. The rug, the trunk, the pillows. I love it all. Oh and for the record I’m off yellow and on to orange. Ha!

Love this dramatic office redo from CocoCozy. It’s amazing how much you can shed the light on a dungeon of a space. New drywall can work wonders just about anywhere!  Who wouldn’t want to work in this light bright space. I have been doing a little office renovating myself and I’ll reveal some pictures when I’m done. Do you have some pictures of a before and after you have done? Send me some pictures I would love to feature you on a Wednesday!

I also think the pink pig is hilarious

The simple desk is a great feature as well.

Love this makeover I spied over at ish and chi Black Paint?? Oh but it works. Make sure you have a good natural light source so you don’t end up with a cave like room (unless that’s your desired effect)  This room now sings with the architectural detail of the ceilings and floors.  I would be inspired to get some work done here instead of the boring blandness it was before.
