Inspiration: Workspace

Are we all familiar with Jenna Lyons already? The glamazon President and Creative Director of J. Crew who, in addition to being the genius behind some of the most delicious high-low fashion, has probably the world’s most gorgeous home in Brooklyn. No? Let’s refresh your memory:

Are we on the same page now? Good. It should come as no surprise to you, then, that her office at J Crew is equally as incredible. I should have been fully prepared for it, but it still sort of knocked me on my butt and made my jaw hit the floor. It also made me seriously rearrange my priorities in life to include wearing poppy lipstick on the regular. Or any lipstick at all, for that matter.

Needless to say, I am in love with this workspace. It’s surprising, because I know I’d never be able to function in an office with that much clutter or stuff on the walls (even if it is cute pieces of inspiration or 3 Tivoli radios). If you want to get the same look and feel as Jenna’s office (minus the high-rise views of New York and her amazing job title), here’s how:

1. T Pins / 2. Heels / 3. Suitcase / 4. Radio / 5. Chair / 6. Desk

I have a Tivoli radio, and I love it. The sound quality is impressive and the design is unbeatable. I inherited mine from my dad, so I don’t know if I’d be willing to shell out that much money for it on my own, but it definitely enhances an otherwise normal activity like listening to classical music and taking a bath. Also, that table has stolen my heart. I’m trying to think of a realistic way to bring it into my life, even though I’m completely smitten with my Parsons desk. I like, I want it, and it’s 20% off through November 8th! Can we pretend my birthday has come early this year? Someone? Anyone?

  • You can’t get rid of the parsons desk, that’s how I found your site! Poppy red lipstick and turtlenecks…? You’re nailing your own style girlfriend! I love that office wall, not sure I could concentrate with it either.

    • Oh no, I don’t intend to get rid of my beloved Parsons desk! But that watermelon desk is just so great! I’m looking for ways to have BOTH in my life. White People Problems.
      Her office wall makes me want to go in and organize everything.

  • I can’t decide what I love more about this post, her outfit or her office. Both are fabulous!

    • I completely agree!
