I don’t even remember how I stumbled on her site but I believe it may have been something I read in a magazine. Enter Effie’s Paper…

Celeb Homes: Ivanka Trump

image

Complete opposite of her dad’s aesthetic, Ivanka has penthouse decorated with nice finishings but with a sense of liveable comfort. One may ask why disrupt the view of the floor to ceiling windows with a dresser but I think it’s a way to keep some privacy…

image

The monochromatic room is gender neutral and calming. Love the wallpapered ceiling…

image

This metallic mural is a pretty backdrop for the foyer…

I guess when I think of Ivanka, I wouldn’t envision this as her workspace. I do like the bold hue of the desk. And the cubed bookshelving is nicely styled and functional.

And since our days are getting shorter, (the worst part about entering fall), losing daylight time is a no go for me…

Now one thing about mags that I love is the cheap wall art ideas. I didn’t realize it until reading Boutique La Boheme, that framing snatch outs from mags is a good idea. I thought about taking covers from childrens books and framing them. Why not use same concept. Sometimes the photography of a photoshoot is too pretty to pass up..

Tuesday’s Tips: Use floating shelves & cabinets to create a desk in small spaces…

image
I was watching dvr’d hgtv’s For Rent last night & the designer created a workspace for the clients. The space was tight so instead of using a traditional desk with a lot of depth, she used a narrow wood shelf supported by two file cabinets. It fit the space perfectly and proved to be just as functional as a regular desk…

It got me thinking how many more people can benefit from the same idea. Especially people who don’t have a separate room for the office. For some, bedrooms need to serve dual purposes and laying in a bed with a laptop may not be the best place to produce the greatest work…
