desk contest!

desk1
decor8 is having a super fun contest in which i'm very excited to participate. the complete rules are here, but in a nutshell, you have to photograph your workspace and then head over to fabulous stationery and pick out the *one* notecard that best represents your space. fun, no? i've looked through the 300+ cards and narrowed it down to two. which do you think is the better choice?

AB
zoom in for more shots of my space and to see the notecards in context: option a | option b

ps ... the contest ends september 28. hurry!

well, a seems to directly relate more to your workspace. but i like b better as a card.

how's that for helpful? (no really, go with b!)

Hi Holly,

Love your "sleek" workspace. This is almost too difficult as my first task this morning but I am going to vote for option A. I think the "square" feel of the first card more closely represents the feel of your focal point which is your chair. I like the repetition in the second card as it relates to your window covering but I still think A is a better fit. Can't wait to hear what you choose. k

I say A...the balance of color matches your workspace better.

Another vote for A - I like both cards but think that A more closely matches the clean-lined elegance of your space.
How are you liking that desk chair? Mine is going to need to be replaced soon and I need to find that balance of attractive but comfortable.

I'm gonna go with option A...it's more you office than B.w

Hi Hollyloo!

I would say A may be more of symbol of your workspace, but B is certainly more of a symbol of your personality. If there was a contest about the worker and not the workspace...you'd definitely be B!!!!

Option A for sure.
color, symmetry, balance

are the walls in your office a soft yellow?

holly said...

thanks for the help, everyone. i'm still not sure which way i'll go, but will be sure to let you know once i decide!

anonymous, the walls in my office are kind of a light khaki. think coffee with lots of cream!

I pick A

Kit said...

I vote for Option A!

holly said...

ok, so i sent my entry today! i picked option a. here is what i sent ...

everything in my office is very modular – right down to the view. i have a few organic shapes ... the plants, the vases, a little bird, what’s on my monitor ... thrown in to create some visual interest and add a little personality. my office is also mostly brown accented by some pops of blue.

the card i selected, called frame, was a perfect match for my space. it’s mostly brown with a pop of blue. it, too, is very modular but has the organic shapes in the numbers of the address. the overall look is clean, modern and sophisticated, with just a hint of playfulness – a lot like my, much loved, office.


thanks everyone for helping me decide. i'll let you know if i win. fingers crossed!

ps ...erin t, i love the desk chair. great price, my back isn't sore anymore and still looks great after a few months of me sitting in it for 9 hours a day. it's the parallel desk chair from crate and barrel and is still on sale for $199. yay!

At first I thought A but I am voting for B. The blue dots look like the little blue bird.

Definitely A. Or B. No, no ... A. Then again, maybe B. B is good. Yes, yes, B. A.
