You’re Killing Me, Smalls!

Lately, I have been green with jealousy.

Green over this lovely 50’s loveseat…

Why am I jealous?  Well because this love seat was on the LA Craigslist and I live six hours away from there.  Oh and there’s more.  Now, I’m about to kill all those readers in LA, I wrote this post about a month ago and tucked it into my drafts to complete it later.  The items surely are no longer available.  Really, I shouldn’t be posting this post but I’m a bit dried up on ideas and a laziness factor has kicked in.  So, let this serve as inspiration to all you LA dwellers – your Craigslist is out of control good!!

Here are the rest of my finds from a month ago when I put together a little office solely from one day off of LA’s Craigslist.  You are killing me smalls!!

Awesome lucite and white desk.  And what would go better with white, and green than pink?!  Nothing.

Lighting for the desk –

Pair of pink lucite lamps for $100.  Ugh!  Unfair!

Now for the desk chair, this beauty for $375

I want this chair so badly, it hurts.  Apparently this one is still available, check here.

Now this office is going to need some storage, how about some more pink…

With so much color, let’s just add in a jute rug – how about one that is shot next to garbage cans…ha ha.

Lastly for the pendant light

This is a bit different to have in an office; I’d usually recommend it for a kitchen island but I like the unexpected element of it.  This is still available here.

LA, LA, LA….why do you have to be so close yet so far away?!

      Oh that is just perfect you are moving back next week. Fingers crossed it is still available. I would be over the moon if such a stylish chair went to such a stylish person – match made in heaven. ALSO, congrats on the move!! So happy for you!!

    Love the whole look! Maybe it’ll make you feel better that Nashville is wayyy more than 6 hours from LA. And our craigslist definitely does not compare to SF’s.

    P.S. my mother-in-law got me that white hutch as an early bday gift! I’ll send pics, I looove it!

    It’s true, LA Craigslist is amazing. I’m only an hour away and too lazy usually to make it out there! Santa Barbara is closer and also has some good stuff.
