My Black Friday Purchase

November 29, 2011 at 11:03 AM 4 comments

I don’t know if you rushed through Thanksgiving dinner to stand in the line at Best Buy or wherever. I, thankfully, did not. In fact, I had absolutely no intention of doing any shopping of any kind this past weekend. But sometimes our intentions do not always match our actions. 🙂 During a stroll through downtown Los Gatos, Graham and I wondered into the Mac store. We had been considering a Mac Desktop computer for my work for a long time. We finally took the plunge and now I feel much more official; it’s the perfect purchase for Kate Collins Interiors. It actually has made my workdays feel more productive.

I will say the Mac is beautiful – here it is in my office…

I love that it only has one little cord; don’t you just hate cords?

I need to accessorize my desk more but for now I just want the mac to take center stage. For the rest of the bits and pieces in the room – the chairs are Pottery Barn but are no longer sold there, similar ones found at Restoration Hardware. The desk is the Ikea Besta desk. The crocodile lamps are the Saville lamp by Jonathan Adler (mine were Craigslist) and most fun of all – the paintings are from Irene Wood (they were a wedding gift and we cherish them).

If you’re thinking to yourself, “really Kate? a post on a computer? really?” Yeah, well, I couldn’t agree more. I do really love my computer and I’m still in a bit of a turkey coma…Thanksgiving was just so much fun. What about you – turkey coma till Christmas?

    If ever there was a computer to call “lovely”, a Mac would certainly be it!

    I have the exact same one at work and I LOVE IT. I think it makes work so much more pleasant when you have a pretty streamlined computer to look at. Good post and happy holidays!
