Did you see J. Crew's bespectacled executive creative director, Jenna Lyons, gracing the cover of the most recent issue of Fast Company in her signature androgynous style? Alongside focusing on the ins and outs of how Lyons has helped build the brand into a force in fashion, we get a peek inside her New York offices in 360 degrees, an office described as a "cross between a boudoir and an artist's loft"...

The first thing that caught my eye beyond Lyon's choice in task seating (the classic Eames Aluminum Management Chair in white) was her unusual orange wireless Apple keyboard for the iMac. She might have had it custom painted, but there's also a chance she may have just accessorized the keyboard in color by applying a Keyboard Silicone Cover Skin (below).

Like her desk? It's the Blu Dot Strut X-Large Table in watermelon, also available in smaller sizes for those of us who need to squeeze into our workspace like a pair of fashionable J. Crew denim.

It's obvious upon viewing the panoramic of Lyon's large office, the computer, tucked away like a sleight embarrassing requirement, is just one amongst a myriad of tools for inspiration and design she utilizes to formulate and execute J. Crew's signature style. It's also evident she loves washi tape.

Fast Company's profile and accompanying peek inside the design arbiter's office is a fascinating glimpse of a style icon's real world Pinterest board, reflecting Lyon's love of the eclectic, quirky, and somehow always soon-to-be relevant aesthetic.
