Putting a Pretty Face on a Workspace

September 23, 2016

How beauty blogger Sona Gasparian of Simply Sona dressed up her home office with a handful of our favorite products.

Sona Gasparian of Simply Sona spends a ton of time thinking about, testing, and obsessing over beautiful things. So when it comes to decorating her workspace, it’s only natural that she wants to surround herself with furniture and accessories that work hard and look good. Since we happen to know a thing or two about that topic—especially in small spaces—we partnered with Sona and her husband/manager Kas to transform the home office (aka “Beauty Room”) in their Los Angeles apartment. The finished look reflects a fresh, clean aesthetic that allows Sona’s beauty products to remain the focus of her work. Follow along to learn how you can decorate your own home office affordably, too.


1. Opt for sleek shelving.
“I’m absolutely head over heels for the via marble bookcase. Not only is it chic and perfectly metallic, it’s the ideal place to store my prettiest accessories. In another area of the room, which is the background for lots of my videos, the 3.14 white bookcase holds my fashion and beauty books plus my favorite candles and flowers.”

2. Accessorize with products that make you squeal with delight.
From playful pig bookends to tea light candle holders that set a serene mood, accessories make all the difference in design. Sona even repurposed our colada tea light candle holder as pretty storage for her make-up brushes.

3. Desks easily dress things up.
Our dahlia marble desk provides a classic, cool surface for Kas to do his work. “Like me, KB likes to keep his desk super minimalist. His desk has a gorgeous marble top and metal legs. (Can you tell that we love metallics here?).”

4. Switch out a dull lamp for one that’s functional and fabulous.
Our astronomy floor lamp channels the look of a vintage telescope, angles light up/down, and swivels 360 degrees. Plus it’s bright, which helps Sona when filming videos.

5. Trash the idea of an ugly waste basket.
Our gold wastecan treats your trash like treasure in the most glamorous gold finish.

6. Take a seat in something stylish.
“This charcoal rouka chair adds a nice touch to the space. The gold frame is gorgeous and it looks so good with my white desk.”
