Home Office: The Little Things

I think I've made my love affair for little things very public on this blog. When I say "little things" I would be referring to little trinkets. You know- business card holders, pretty jars, books, pencil holders, mugs, cake stands, trays, pencils, striped straws. Things of that sort :) I'm constantly in search of a new way to display my pens and pencils, jewelry, hair clips, and the like.  If they're displayed on something cute, it doesn't matter what it is...it's clearly sittin' pretty on a dish or tray {even my q-tips are in an old fashioned ice cream sundae jar!}. Lately I've noted that my desk is full of little things, in little jars and platters, that collectively take up a little lotta a bit of space on my work surface ;) 
That leads into what I'm talking about today: the home office, desk area, girl cave {as my dear friend calls it}, or the place you blog!  All those little things help personalize and hopefully organize your work space. So let's take a look at some fun & stylish office areas. At the bottom of the post I rounded up some of my favorite office accessories!

So besides the fresh flowers {which is a must to a happy girl getting her work done!} what is needed on or around your desk? Here are some ideas!

Folders and boxes and stylish storage for files is a great thing to have- hides the clutter and keeps things streamlined.

Business or calling card holders are cute and practical, and this monogramed one from Design Darling is perfectly personalized.

What desk is complete without some sparkle?! This could be a book end or paper weight.

Kate Spade always does it right with bright colors and clean lines. Every girl needs some stationary handy to write to her gal pals.

No one wants cluttered notepads or thousands of sticky notes on your desk! These striped notepads would do the trick.

And for those curious, here's my desk:
 


What are your desk essentials?!

  9. Love your desk! This couldn't have come at a better time since I'm gathering ideas for our office redo. The challenge for us is making it a girl cave AND a man cave at the same time. Love the lilac and sunshine yellow too. xo

  10. There are few things I love more than a pretty office space! Such a must for bloggers :) My favorite things on/by my desk are my Rifle Paper Co calendar, a "Keep Calm and Eat a Cupcake" plaque that John brought me from London, and the "Team Bride" pin on my bulletin board from my best friend's rehearsal dinner :)
