I've been toying with moving a desk in front of a window. Do you think a tranquil vista is required? At my window I would be looking straight at my opposite neighbour, or their permanently flashing burglar alarms. I could always sign up for Neighbourhood Watch. I'm totally inspired by this bright desk from the amazing Finnish blog My Second Hand Life. I have quite a few customers from Finland, I think Finns must have excellent taste :) Have a look at this party and this spring arrangement.
