A Vintage-Inspired Home Office

My husband and I have a dream, and a very real goal, to buy a house that we can retire in. On my list of things I'd love for the house to include is an extra bedroom that I could turn into a beautiful home office. I envision a very Instagram-worthy desk, a place to store all of the PR samples I get, and some pretty tufted accent chairs: where I can enjoy coffee breaks with my husband, who luckily also works from home.

When I get inspiration from vintage home offices on the web, I'm most attracted to spaces with a touch of modern glam. My husband and I both like transitional decor - old meets new. For example, I'd pair a modern mirrored desk with one of these antique desk chairs. Seating isn't often the focal point of an office, but why shouldn't it be? We spend all day sitting in it, after all.

Sponsored: The Top Trends in Homecoming Dresses for Fall 2013


As I researched for the top trends in homecoming dresses 2013, I was reminded just how long it's been since I was in high school. Homecoming, as well as prom dresses, were much longer when I attended school dances. The current trends for homecoming dresses vary, though they all have one thing in common - they are nearly all above the knee or hi-low hemmed. I think they're adorable and much more suited to a fun high school look.

The most popular of the looks is the strapless sweetheart fit-and-flare dress. You can make this look edgy or girly, depending on the dress and accessories. Some of the strapless fit and flare dresses come in super-glam styles, with glittered or gem bodices. Hi-low hems have also been very trendy for teens and adults in the last few years, and the trend has become a classic that is here to stay. A hi-low dress gives the fun look of a short dress with the added drama of a longer dress. Texture like pleating, ruffles, and rosettes are always on trend. It's the perfect way to add a little extra something to a short dress.

Color trends vary for homecoming dresses this fall. Neutrals like white and black are very popular. Not one particular color leads the way, though the some of the most popular colors are rich, bold hues like fuchsia, aqua, and royal purple. Of course color blocking is still on trend, so a two-toned homecoming dress is a popular choice.
