Subject: How to make your office space chic, homey  & functional

Now we all don’t want to work in a messy environment, and sometimes Pinterest can be a rabbit hole of things we can’t afford/ wont fit in your shoe box office, let alone on your desk. So, we’ve made it easier for you (you’re welcome) here are a few things we think you could (don’t have to… don’t panic) own to make your office space chic, homey & functional.  

Pretty Pens

When a great idea strikes, what do you do? Jot down your brilliant ideas with a chic and sleek pen, of course! Kate Spade has a great set of black and white polka-dot pens, which are fashionable and suitable for virtually any work environment.

A Posh Paperweight

Sometimes you just need a daily reminder that “You are doing amazing sweetie!” amongst the swarm of dull and drab papers on your office desk. If you’re going to decorate your office space, you might as well go bold—and this “girl boss” paperweight is the perfect accent to any desk.

Sweet Smells

Homesick candles are here! They have a ton of great scents to choose from, whether you are craving the comforting smells of your hometown or want a seasonal candle to ~spice up your life~ in your tiny cubicle. However, before you buy your favourite scent in candle-form, make sure to check your company’s policy on candles before adding one to your shopping cart!

Sleek Stickies

If you are going to be organised, you might as well have fun while doing it. Bando has great organisational items to choose from, such as these bright and colourful stickies.

A Friendly Face

A friendly face never hurt anybody. If you’re having a bad day, you can stare at an adorable photo of friends, family, your pet or significant other to cheer you up. Check out Urban Outfitter’s easel-inspired frame for ultimate cuteness.

Globe Trotter

Do you often find yourselves daydreaming of being on a Greek island or munching on croissants in Paris while typing on your computer during your 9-5 job? Although you may not be able to hop on a plane right then and there, you can at least feel comforted knowing you have a beautiful globe on your desk.

Sweet Treats

Sometimes you just need a sweet pick you up to get you through a busy workday. Dylan’s Candy Bar is always the way to go and we mean ALWAYS.

Sleek stapler & organisation set

In order to be a productive girl-boss, you have to have the organisational skills to keep all of your ducks in a row. Although this sleek organisation set may be minimalist, it’s the perfect pop of colour for what could be an otherwise drab desk

The perfect planner

Last but not least, a top-notch planner is one of those things that makes you feel that you have your life in order—even if you tend to be Type-B or have a nasty habit of procrastinating. There are a lot of great places to look for when it comes to planners, but Paper Source is one of my personal favourites.

It’s hard to make your workspace feel comforting, when you typically associate work with stress and a long list of things that need to be done. Adding a few homey touches to your office space, however, can make all the difference.

So get decorating girl.

Kind regards,
