Still a Nosey Newt

Now that I am back online, I'm at it again. 

I'm on the hunt for a vintage teak secretary or roll top desk, something like the pics below.  We need something like this because I am a total computer/office hog.  Hubby can barely log internet time with me around, so we bought a laptop for him to call his very own and now he needs a desk.  Poor fella has been using the footstool of the reading chair in my office.  Not comfy.

Where will we put a secretary when we find one?  We're thinking of replacing my beloved armoire in the guest bedroom (see the House Tour for more pics).  Then the space can be his to use as an office, but the piece will still function for guest storage.  Perhaps even better than what is there . . .

Ooo, have you ever seen this angle?

But, during this quest, I'm a bit distracted looking at snippets of homes in the online classifieds.  I'm ogling the good design.  Check out the gorgeous space below.  I love the bold artwork & accessories with the neutral off white sofa and grey chair.

P.S. The coffee table is for sale.  But what I really want is that grey chair . . . 


  1. I love the second one because of the nice horizontal details :)I actually have one these in our home .They looks very nice.

  2. The second desk is fabulous! I love the detail, but vintage look. Good luck.

  3. Your guest bedroom is lovely. You really have a knack for keeping things clean, simple and stylish. I love that look but I keep cluttering things up! Think I'll do a little purging today. Thanks for the peek. Good luck with the desk hunt.

  4. the bird light in the second picture is so cool! I love getting a glimpse into peoples homes via craigslist. I'm comforted by the fact that some people are crazier than me

  5. I hope you find one soon! It would be perfect in your guest bedroom. Good luck :)

  6. I think that first bureau is excellent.I hope you find something similar for your guest bedroom. xx

  7. I love the first one. I think it would be perfect for your husband's laptop. I'm so in love with my teak dropfront desk that I made sure we got one for the store.

  8. I want that second desk! it's amazing
