When including a work space in your bedroom, forget the basic boring desk that’s often part of a hotel suite. This glass-topped desk was an outlet find by Atlanta designer Michelle Mentzer, who paired it with an acrylic Z-shaped accent table from an antiques store. She also saved on the metallic lamp, mirror and glitzy accessories at a home decor discount store.
