Inspiring Interiors - Offices

We have a fairly large office off the side of our bedroom that has not been utilized since we moved in, nearly ten months ago.  Instead of functioning as an office, it stored a lot of our belongings that merged and have been forgotten about ever since.  Well, the other day I was walking the dog and stumbled across a great treasure just pushed to the curb - the West Elm Parson's Desk that I have been eyeing for years, seriously. It was even in white, the color that I wanted!  I just couldn't believe that someone would just throw it away, but well, that is New York for you. So in one days time I managed to ransack the room and we both agreed to throw away old nick knacks and make the place functional and beautiful.  It needs a coat of paint, a photo gallery of sorts and some other details to make the space an inviting haven to work in.

Now that I have the desk, I can finally create an inspiring work space.  I am scouring the web and design magazines for some inspiration. Below are some images that are getting my creative juices flowing.
