{inspiration: white + gold office}


. . . making over the office space and have completely fallen for Aerin Lauder’s ultra-glamorous and inspirational combination of mirrored desktop, lucite table lamp, and white and gold desk accessories . . .

{p.s.} is your desk tidy or cluttered + a little messy?

26 Notes
  • I love this office. It inspired me to add a little collection of my favorite perfumes to the hand creams I keep on my desk. My favorite office accessory is the mirrored cachepot that I use for my pens & pencils.

  • Yes!!!! This is my dream workspace/desk set-up. I’ve had this photo on my vision board for a year to two now (can’t remember when it was originally published?)- anyway, I love it! :)

  • In my wildest dreams my work space looks precisely like Ms. Lauder’s. Glamorous, gold accessories on display, a bundle of white flowers, a bundle of white, freshly sharpened pencils: so chic!

    Thank you for sharing the home-decor eye candy.


  • My desk is all white with a glass top – and I also have small gold accents – a lamp, a pencil holder, a framed photo and a little gold mouse :). Having it all glass meant it always has to be tidy! (no drawers to stash things in…)

  • STUNNING! I just posted something similar (well, not exactly) but this image would have matched it perfectly! Another great picture for my decor inspiration file :-)

  • this is such a beautiful office.

  • The hubs has taken over our spare room/office so my desk is currently our kitchen bar. I would like to think it would be clean but knowing me it would be cluttered. I’ve been drooling over lucite tables forever.

  • Love Lauder’s desk! The gold really reflects the best balance of clean, neat and luxury chic.

  • Lovely! My desk is my bed, couch, kitchen table.. The joys of having a laptop!

  • very chic and feminine

  • I’m going to work on a better look for my studio/office… the next photo you see of it will be better… I hope!
    EJOY your weekend!

  • This is perfectly function and perfectly romantic! I love it! My favorite thing about this office space might be that lamp and of course the mirrored desk! So so so chic! Thanks for posting this inspirations.

    Have a great weekend! xoxo Crystal

  • so funny, i was just reading the interview with Aerin in this month’s Elle and it mentioned her mirrored desk and immediately thought of this shot – i love everything about it! all the gold accessories and cup of white pencils (fabulous styling anyone?). so perfect.

  • Beautiful office inspiration. I’ve been reconsidering my own arrangement of late. Currently it’s falling into the cluttered category, which makes me realize I need more organizational options.

    Happy Friday, sweet pea:)

  • So exquisite!

  • absolutely amazing!!

  • This is not helping my situation out. I am so tired of my office and the bug to redo wont go away. Thanks:)

  • What a beautiful desk. I dream of the day I have an office that beautiful… :)

  • The gold is just STUNNING.

  • I love this! All the white, glass and gold is to die for. So luxurious! Is this from an old vogue? It looks so familiar!

  • my goodness you have been busy with some amazing posts this week! i HATE those weeks when I get so busy with my ‘real’ job that i don’t have time to visit all my faves! but what fun it is when i do find time to pop by–you never disappoint my dear :)

    and for the record? my desk is white with birch legs, with no clutter on top.

    but my computer desktop? it’s a MESS!

  • That is such a lovely office and must be so neat to work there.

    As for my desk ~ I lost a Calligraphy pen I was writing in a card/ present the other day.
    I took everything off and gave it a good clean and tidy. I still did not find the pen and hope that it will turn up somewhere!

  • I agree! This is such a beautiful office set-up. Several months ago I did a desk space makeover, hoping that would inspire me to keep it tidy. It worked for about 2 weeks :0

  • I can only dream that my desk could look that beautiful and tidy. Well, it’s motivated me to do overhaul mine! Another project… Whee!
    If you have time, swing by my place for a giveaway =)

  • So pretty! I like everything in this space…and that everything is coordinated but not too matchy. The pretty perfumes/sprays set on the gold tray look beautiful and adds such a nice bit of unexpected glamour! I like to keep a lovely hand lotion and spray nearby as well, in my own office…

    As for neatness, I have a tulip table as my main work area, with a large silver bowl in the centre and candles inside…I have a tall, thin, warm gray dresser (from my mom’s childhood room) that now holds all of my supplies, neatly :)
