Meet Emily Schuman, author and founder of Cupcakes & Cashmere, and first time mom to a beautiful baby girl! The California native, and domino alum, has been a go-to resource for inspiration on all things fashion, food, decor, and entertaining. We got a special look inside her sunny space (and C&C headquarters!) for a peek at her ultra chic home office style.

What’s your favorite thing about your desk space?

My favorite thing about my desk space is how clean and sparse it is. I have the white lacquer parsons desk from West Elm, which is sleek and classic so I can play up the rest of the space. I wouldn’t call myself a particularly tidy person, but I do believe in always keeping my office space meticulous. It’s hard to focus on your work if you’re surrounded by a mess.

  3. (since I’m old school about taking notes by hand, I make sure to keep pretty, monogrammed note pads around the house)
  4. A leather mousepad
