No workspace is complete without a gorgeous desktop wallpaper. But unfortunately for those of us who don't like huge-multi-monitor digital graphics or keeping our Google Calendars on our dekstops, finding simple and beautiful images can be tough.

Simple Desktops is simply a site dedicated to finding simple wallpaper:

Do you often find yourself spending time looking for something that isn't a beautiful photograph but also isn't a gradient and drop shadowed mess with a little lens flare and some annoying copyright information in the corner?

Simple Desktops: a collection of bling-, drop-shadow-, and gradient-free desktops to help keep you stay focused, but also provide just enough eye candy to not be bored. It's here because finding these around the web is just too hard.

Even if you're not gradient-phobic, it's a great resource to find themed holiday desktops that aren't over the top.

The art is user-submitted periodically, but there's a steady collection already available for your perusal. You can also subscribe to receive updates through an RSS feed, Twitter updates or Simple Desktops' Facebook Fan Page.

And if you're a budding designer, feel free to submit your own simple wallpaper for inclusion on the site!
