Style Sourcelist: Create Emily's Office in Your Home

Style Sourcelist: Create Emily's Office in Your Home

Last Spring we got an intimate look at Emily Schuman's home, where we got to see all the details of her lovely apartment — including this fun office space. This super feminine and stylish look is easy to pull off - here is a style sourcelist to get you started:

1. Find the right shade of light pink. I personally think that if you go to your local hardware store you will have plenty of options. For instance this palette of pink shades by Benjamin Moore.

West Elm Parson's Desk ($299)

Target Parson's Desk ($65)

2. Find the right white minimalist desk. Emily's is the West Elm Parson's desk, however for those who cannot or do not want to spend much, Target has their version of this desk for a steal!

3. This luscious garland that sparkles over Emily's desk is from Confetti System in New York.

4. The ghost chair is easy to find. There are many versions and replicas available found just by doing a Google search. This Kartell Lou Lou Ghost chair is available from All Modern for $133

5. Finding a white antler lamp may be a bit of challenge. There were many online resources for finding a regular antler lamp, which you could purchase and paint white yourself. If not, there is this awesome one from Lamps Plus that I found via Polyvore for $380.

6. The rolling rack in Emily's office is a vital part of her daily life, because she blogs about fashion and has built her whole career based around style and design. The rolling rack of clothes serve as a "mood board" for her blog where she draws inspiration. Even if you're not a fashion blogger the idea of a rolling rack in the office could still be not only fun but functional. Show off your favorite dresses, hang your winter coats, or just purses and scarves. The Rigga IKEA rolling rack only costs $15.

7. The Apple MacBook Pro (starting at $1199) is a gorgeous addition to any office. Aesthetically it's sleek and minimalist, but anyone who spends as much time on the computer as I do will surely know how incredible of a machine it really is. And it looks pretty on a white desk.

8. It's not easy to find a functional but subtle filing cabinet in white. I liked Emily's choice, which is basically handle-less and sits directly on the floor. This one I found at Crate and Barrel has the similar appeal (wheels optional).

10. Emily also opted for a more decorative approach to sorting files with a white metal brocade file sorter. I found an identical one at the Container Store.
