Office

Roomspiration: White on white office space.

by Jamie Sanford on January 17, 2011

Welcome to another new feature on The Daily Wishlist.  I love seeing the inside of other people’s homes – blogs like Apartment Therapy and Style at Home have me salivating on a regular basis.

Today’s first Roomspiration post comes from a photo I saw on Style at Home, in their Best Interiors of 2010 piece.

I didn’t realize at first that this was meant to be a dressing room/closet space – that seems to be a pretty obvious desk in the middle and I was immediately excited about having a house one day with an office like this for me to cook up all of my madness.  (I’ve been really wanting my own office space lately – I don’t have an office at home, and since I’m the one in my home who has a laptop, I don’t get much use of the one desk that we have.)  Not a big deal though, if I had a space this big, I could definitely see it doing double-duty as an office and a place to keep my clothing and accessories.  I tend to gravitate toward dark furniture but this room is really appealing to me at all.

Anyway, I have 2 items today that I think could help to recreate this room.

This is a dresser from the Hemnes collection at IKEA.  The Hemnes collection is quite big and there are multiple options available, such that I’m sure one could recreate the storage situation happening in the photo in whatever space is available to them.  This particular 8-drawer chest of drawers is available from IKEA for $299.

I think this is the actual chandelier from the photo.  This is the Kristaller chandelier from IKEA, and is a great deal at $39.99. I like the grouping of chandeliers here but I would almost want to try grouping 3 chandeliers that are slightly different together – and bonus if I were able to find them in some sort of thrift-shopping situation.

Feel free to send in photos of locations that I can use for future Roomspiration posts!

Wooden Keyboard Trays

by Jamie Sanford on November 3, 2010

Today we have a beautiful wooden keyboard tray, made in both right and left-hand versions.

Beautiful! Here’s the product description:

Our keyboard tray is designed to combine the mac wireless keyboard and trackpad into one clean unit. We offer a left handed and a right handed version. Every aspect of the tray’s design and production is sustainable. We use whole and solid-joined hardwoods, water based glue, and a food safe oil finish to make them. The wood is sustainably harvested in North America. Our trays are made in Vancouver, Canada by local artists.

This lovely Canadian product is available for $110.

USB Owl

by Jamie Sanford on September 24, 2010

All week and I haven’t linked to the entire collection of owl items on The Daily Wishlist? Click here for a full listing of posts.

The last item for Owl Week is this cute little companion to perch on the computer.


Very cute, right? The owl plugs in to your USB port and the owl moves a bit and keeps you company.

Not for everyone, I know.  Kids would probably love it, I would love it too, but I’m definitely a kid at heart so no surprise there.

The USB Robot Owl from ThinkGeek is available for $19.99.

USB Desktop Digital Photo Frame

by Jamie Sanford on September 1, 2010

Today’s item is a cute digital frame to plug into your computer!


A very cute, 3.5-inch digital frame that can subtly feature some favorite photos.

The Portable 3.5″ USB Digital Photo Frame is a versatile inexpensive frame that wants to be your friend. It’s powered by a built in rechargeable battery, but is perfectly happy to sit and sip power from the USB port on your laptop. It has a headphone jack and can play MP3 files in a pinch… and supports standard SD cards. The bright hi-res screen has good contrast with a nice viewing angle. Since it’s light and needs no cords the Portable 3.5″ USB Digital Photo Frame is perfect for sticking up on memo boards or refrigerators (double sided foam tape not included). It just wants to show you your photos and make you happy.

Love that it plays songs too! The mini digital frame is available for $39.99 from ThinkGeek.
