Get The Look: Raina Kattelson's Fun & Colorful Workspace

Raina Kattelson is a stylist and photographer, so it's really no wonder why we were immediately drawn to her home work space. The colors pop in all the right places and the room is flooded with natural light — a feature many people would give their right arm for (not literally, of course).

Initially we were attracted to the neutral color palette. Even though the walls are white and the other two main colors are black and brown — the space still seems bright and full of life. The accessories and pieces of inspiration hung on the cork board serve as the main sources of color, but in just the right amount.

It's also refreshing to see that not everything in this office is from IKEA. Raina took the time to visit other shops and even found her awesome office chair at the Brooklyn Flea and reupholstered the cushion to match the office. We're obviously huge fans of displaying vintage cameras as art and Raina did it with sophistication and restraint right on the desk. The constant reminder above the desk from artist Anthony Burrill is another nice touch.

Get This Look:

1. One of two chairs Raina was able to find and reupholster from the Brooklyn Flea
2. Apple Keyboard With Numeric Keypad
3. Apple Macbook
4. Collected Vintage Cameras. Check out Etsy, it's a great source for vintage cameras!
5. KULLA Table Lamp
6. Fabric covered cork board. IKEA's VÄGGIS is an inexpensive option. Add a small basket to hold magazines and paperwork.
