Classics I Love | The Secretary Desk

Wednesday, September 28, 2016

 A few weeks ago I started a series titled "Classics I Love" which will cover all sorts of things from fashion to interior design.  Today I'm sharing my love of the classic secretary desk.  I see them all the time while out & about, and would love to work one into our home.  If only there was one more corner.  

Behold these beauties in their natural state filled with curiosities and collections.

I especially love them tucked into a corner in a bedroom...

and painted out in a fun color combination.

Of course white always works.  Always.


  1. Funny, I've been thinking about replacing the vintage (small) vanity in my guest room with a secretary. It would still provide a surface to put on make up, but also storage for linens and more shelving to display the little things I love to display.

  2. I agree. I would love love love to have a glass front secretary. I actually would love to have an old one and paint it some unexpected color. I really don't have the right place for one in either house but if we downsize up north I hope to change out a lot of the furniture as well. In a dream world I would sell that house fully furnished.! Love this series. Great idea.
