Going back to work after a long holiday is never easy….however, having a beautiful, inspiring work space can make it a whole lot easier. What better time then the New Year to update your work environment!
These days, it seems like more and more designers (Kate Spade and Jonathan Adler for example) are branching out with accessories that help make your office environment super chic! An organized, fun and personal work space is important to increasing your productivity and creativity. Whether you have a spacious corner office, a small den in your home, a desk in the middle of an open office floor plan or if you’re stuck in a cubicle (like me), there are ways you can add personality and inspiring items to uplift and excite your work day!
Here are 5 tips on keeping your work space tidy and most importantly, CHIC!
Do away with the clutter and minimize the items on your desk. Only keep the most impactful pieces. Consolidate office supplies to a clean and tidy tray so they take up less space.
2. Pretty Storage Solutions
Storage solutions don’t have to be your typical metal eyesore we’re used to seeing. CB2 and West Elm are a couple of brands that show us that functional storage can also be aesthetically pleasing and stylish.
3. Hide Your Cords
There are so many great cord management products out there to help maintain a clean, cord-free workspace! Below is an example of one that can be installed underneath your desk.
Just like any good outfit, accessories can be just as important as the main piece. Invest in your desk and splurge on accessories that are not only pretty, but will help you stay organized.
5. Make an Inspiration Board!
Nothing is more inspirational than having all the things you wish to accomplish right in front of you to encourage you everyday. Let’s be real, it can be a drag to be stuck behind a desk at work all day, but we do it because we strive to have more, experience more and most importantly, BE more! Display pictures of destinations you would like to visit, family members who inspire you, a paint or fabric swatch you love for a pop of inspirational color, cards from friends and colleagues, or anything else inspiring or uplifting you may have!
Here are some of my favorite work spaces along with some desk accessories and organizational items to help you along the way!
