This is how I decorated my writing table. It stands in my dorm room, in one of the brighter corners. The desk itself is an old real school desk.
I put some empty bottles on it. Making them empty is especially funny when there's wine in them. ;-)
The bottles have different shades of green and white, but in each there's a red candle. I think this adds a romantic touch to the businesslike entourage.
The walls are white, I'm not allowed to paint them in a different color. :/ That's why I decided for violet curtains.
