Hawkins gets a lot of comments on a desk her parents built for her for $30. “I have literally been asked about that desk hundreds of times,” Hawkins says. She found a thrift store desk that wasn’t in the best condition, but she liked the specs, so her parents designed this similar one. “I had always dreamed of having a huge, massive desk where I could have a ton of people around it and have lots of room to spread out,” Hawkins says.
Hawkins likes how Evans challenged her conventions. Hawkins prefers black and white, so she initially didn’t care for a color flourish in the form of a blue cabinet. But it’s now become one of her favorite parts of the room. “[Evans] totally challenged me to think outside of my box,” Hawkins says.
