Behind the Scenes: DECO’s Dream Desk

In this #SummerIssue, white is the colour of choice. Fresh, cool and tranquil, white can transform a space from claustrophobic to spacious. And what room could be in more dire need of openness than an office? Here’s the behind the scenes of DECO’s Dream Desk. 

Easily achieved, think layered white products and areas of interest with different textures, materials and objects. Semi-precious stones make great paper weights and insures an unique touch to any desk, combining that with white marble adds a touch of sophistication and class. Getting too serious? Make it fun with quirky stationary in all white.

My desk, most loyal friend thank you. You’ve been with me on every road I’ve taken. My scar and my protection. – Russian Poet, Marina Tsvetaeva
