the dudley pages.
by my illustrious guest blogger comment


Hello, readers! I’m Erin from the blog, dudley. it’s so great to be guest blogging for sfgirlbybay. I’m a huge fan, and feel so honored to be a part of one of my favorite blogs. Welcome to the dudley pages! I’ll be bringing you inspiration of all kinds. Let’s get started, shall we?

So, let me tell you a little something about myself. I’m a makeup artist and aspiring hairstylist that writes a blog featuring all things beauty, design, home, and fashion related.  I like to profile people on the street with great hair and unique style, photographers, artist’s and musician’s, editorial photo shoots, and anything I find inspiring.

Today’s post is all about different work spaces, styling out your gadgets, and my new favorite 9 to 5 looks. So with that said, here we go!

I absolutely love vibrant punches of color in a work environment, like this office in Sweden designed by Ragnars. Color blocking in an ordinarily bland space adds so much depth and character.  I find it energizing and playful; keeping you on your toes when things need to get done. Plus, it’s just fun! The desk of MaeMae Paperie designer, Megan Gonzales, was recently featured in Rue Magazine. All the colorful clippings, photographs, and supplies are neatly displayed in her studio. I especially like her stamps in the airtight glass jar.

This navy blouse belted with the green skirt worn by blogger, Lucy Laucht, has got to be the cutest work combo! She has mastered the art of the belt. It adds an eclectic vintage twist to the modern office attire while her bright bobbles show off an imagination.  These iPad wallpapers by graphic designer, Simon Page, are some of the coolest I’ve seen. I’m obsessed with everything he does.

Simple, classic, and earthy. This uncluttered space is  great for the home office. Comfortable yet clean and minimal. The use of leather, wood, framed photographs and art, give a worn-in and natural warmth. This whole loft is a design lover’s wonderland.  The Delfin and Postigo residence in Madrid is really quite amazing.  You can check out the rest of their pad here, on Yatzer.

I’m currently coveting this gorgeous Tilt iPad case from Austrian label, Hard Graft. Made from 100% wool and vegetable tanned leather, this case rolls up for support and gives a cushioned feel while typing. So luxurious, I guarantee you’ll catch a few envious glances. It’s the perfect holiday gift for that person who has everything!

Harper’s Bazaar Senior Fashion Market Editor, Joanna Hillman, has a young sophistication that incorporates high fashion pieces with simple, timeless silhouettes. This is one of my favorite looks of hers from Citizen Couture.

Inspiration boards are such a great way to get your daily fix of the things that truly speak to you. The little reminders, artfully arranged in a unique collage. I’ve had many, and you’d be surprised how effective these boards are. Mine have manifested, encouraged creativity and brought ideas and wishes to life. I just love how personal and expressive the process is. These are just a few that I found really neat. Try it!

  1. Any idea who the photographer might be of the photos above the desk?

    (Also, I tried to submit this commet and it said I was posting comments too quickly?)

  2. Hi,
    the photography with two girls wearing white t-shirts is an art piece made by the Spanish artist Naia Del Castillo.
