How many of you loved back to school shopping? I’m not talking the clothes, I’m talking the pens and pencils, notebooks, a sweet new bag, you know… the essentials to get the work done! Every year at this time, I get that ‘back to school’ shopping urge but now it’s just the adult version. It’s the time of year that I take to spiff up my office a bit and recreate a space that will inspire and motivate me. I 100% believe that changing up our surroundings (in any part of the home) is so important to staying refreshed, especially when you work from home. Here’s a look at the items I’m eyeing for my home office, and it all started with that gorgeous lilac chair, which of course, is the most expensive item!
Gold Leather Stash Sack – Perfect for holding all the loose ends that you don’t want floating around in your desk drawer, like pens, paper clips and sticky notes.
Voluspa Pink Citron Candle – Working a late night? Crank Pandora and light up a yummy candle. It makes work so much more enjoyable.
Made by Girl LOVE print – It’s been floating around blog land for some time now and for good reason, it’s simply fabulous and gold!
Elle Tufted Desk Chair in Lilac – I’m in love with this chair and I’m sure it would be sooo much more comfortable than the hard dining room chair I’m sitting on as I type. This is one I’ll be saving my pennies for, and that color? Perfection.
Threshold Desk – I actually already have a white desk in my office that I love (from Ikea) but we’ve been on the lookout for an extra desk for the guest bedroom/second office for Shawn. You can’t beat the price of this Target pick. I’d change up the hardware and call it a day.
Gold Dot Pillow – I prefer a little support in my office chair and totally notice a difference using a lumbar pillow. Plus, I’ll make any excuse for a Caitlin Wilson throw pillow!
Metallic Storage Bin – Great for hiding goodies on cube shelving, especially if you’re short of desk storage.
Desk Calendar – I’m already eyeing 2014 calendars. With all the technology we have, it seems calendars don’t get the love they deserve. It’s another simple way to pretty up your desk and it just doesn’t compare to iCal.
Le Pens – Best pens ever. It’s so much more fun to write in pink or purple no matter how old you are!
