I feel a bit nostalgic this week seeing all of the college students back in the city after a quiet summer. I’m a self-professed geek who actually loved back-to-school time and relished in getting my brand spanking new Ticonderoga pencils sharpened in preparation for the first day of classes. Long gone are the days of first days of school, but I’m still eyeing the desk supplies!

The office is probably the least ‘decorated’ room in my apartment, it’s very functional but has sloped ceilings which makes for limited wall space. This office has my jealousy burning for a tall wall in front of my desk to lean art against — I love the lighting and layering.

During our couch hunt last weekend I stumbled upon this great oversized nautical chart of boston harbor. I love the colors in nautical charts, and the scale of this one was perfect to hang over my desk!

I’m really inspired by these uses of nautical maps layered as wallpaper:
