{inspiration: a stunning gold desk}

. . . and while we're on the topic of inspiring work spaces, Aerin Lauder's 30's French steel and mirror desk at work {previous post} is rivaled only by the glamorous gold vintage Gabriella Crespi desk in her home office:

{the desk is Italian, circa 1970 and constructed of brass over wood}
