I am lucky enough to have my own study at home. It isn't a big room, but it has French doors leading outside, it faces north so is wonderfully light and sunny, and houses a sewing desk, lots of shelves for my files and paraphernalia, inspiration boards for my clippings, some glass fronted cupboards for my wares and a small rosewood desk where I do my blogging. I love this room and spend quite a lot of time there.
My problem is that it tends to get so untidy so quickly. Whenever any of my family have something that needs sewing, glueing, or any other type of attention, it gets dumped in my study. I have piles of paperwork waiting for attention, pictures and recipes from magazines waiting to be filed. I am generally an organised and neat person, but this is one room that gets the better of me. I am not going to show you the other side of my study, but the picture below will give you some idea!

I gaze with envy at the beautiful and tidy desks I see in magazines and on the web and wonder why mine can't look like that.

I love the feminine curves of these desks.
A desk under a window or facing a beautiful view is always desirable

A bookcase of set of shelves in close proximity to a desk always adds to it's appeal....
...as does a beautiful chair.
Family photo's or interesting art pieces or maps create visual interest above a desk.
