Handmade Design

Lately I've found myself cruising Etsy and adding tons of items to my favorites list. If you're not familiar, Etsy is the world's most vibrant marketplace for buying handmade and vintage items, as well as art and supplies. There are so many things to fall in love with! As a small way of giving back to the Etsy community for all the help I've received over the last couple years as a seller (and hopefully helping some shops that are just starting out to get noticed) I thought it would be fun to start a new series creating design boards for different rooms using items from the many skilled artisans on Etsy.

For this board I was inspired by the lovely Manhattan Walnut Desk, which quickly lead my search on to a multitude of fun items to fill a home office space with, including pieces for pure decoration and many for function and style. Have a look!
