Texture Me Tuesdays: Project Update!

One project is coming to an end, and one project is just getting off the ground, so I thought I would show you a little teaser for both! What do you think??

Guest Post: Workspace Wednesdays

A first for Chic Habitat - a guest blogger! Today's post comes from Susi, a writer at Arcadian Lighting, a fantastic online resources for lighting fixtures and accessories. As my inaugural guest blogger, Susi has truly exceeded my expectations, including oodles of inspiration and ideas for us to devour!

Hi, I'm Susi and typically I write for Arcadian Lighting about design and d├ęcor ideas. I'm always happy to guest blog at amazing design blogs like Chic Habitat Interiors. For my guest edition of Workspace Wednesdays I'm showcasing glamorous workspaces and home offices. Who doesn't love to go glam? And a workspace definitely needs some glamour to help us get through our work. Going glam is fun with wall color, lighting fixtures, mirrored surfaces and lots of shiny objects. Enjoy!
Glam Workspace Light Fixture
A mix of antique and contemporary styles works well in this chic workspace. The gorgeous drum pendant's swirling lines echo the antique desk's ornate base. A gorgeous abstract painting adds color to the deeply hued paneled walls.
Glam Workspace Desk Lamps
I love the dramatic black walls in this glam workspace. The glossy finish reflects light like patent leather--beautiful.
Glam Workspace Table Lamps
A chic Lucite chair and a soft palette make this workspace feel decidedly glamorous. A pale palette of cream, gold and silver makes the warm wood of the antique desk pop.
Glam Workspace Lamps
This chic built-in conceals a workspace behind creamy yellow panels. Coordinated accessories and storage give the workspace a stylish glamour. This room has a little fun with lamps, one cool floor lamp and a much smaller look-alike on the desk.
Glam Workspace Light Fixture
Like a little black dress with the perfect gold accessories, this glamorous workspace is a contrast between light and dark. The brass bookcases shine against the black wallpaper.
Glam Workspace Lamps
This glam home office is the work of Suzanne Kasler. I love the rich feeling of layered neutrals 
and gorgeous furnishings.
Glam Workspace Desk Lamp
Black and white glam reminds me of Coco Chanel. Layers of patterns are so stylish in this glam home office workspace. When mixing patterns, pay attention to scale and choose different size patterns and a few solids for a stylish mix.
Glam Workspace Lighting Fixture
Beautiful sheers, a mirrored desk and a dream workspace light fixture add glamour to Khloe Kardashian's office. The mix of deep and pale shades of this neutral palette is the perfect canvas for lots of lovely shiny objects. Working in an office like this would definitely make Friday come sooner than you think! Why not try adding some glam pendant lights, light fixtures, or wall sconces to your office?
