These past weeks have been super frigid here in NJ ~and in a lot of states for that matter~ and well, we all know that long dreary days can affect our moods... To remediate to the Winter Blues, I needed a little color pick me up in my office and some organization.
After the little facelift I gave my desktop calendar, I continued with the blues and added some gold touches. Because lately, I've just been all about gold! Who hasn't anyways?! Gold is the new black.
|Gold is almost everywhere in that room. I even made gold hexagons decals for the walls ;)|
I found a cute set of cards at Staples the other day. Loved the colors. Teal blue and gold!! How perfect. Plus, check out those words: "Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself." I thought it was very appropriate in my office where it is all about creation and ultimately becoming the person I want to be.
I use the Becky Higgins corner puncher and date stamp to make the tabs of my planners. Great products. They've saved my hours already!
I keep only the most important things I need by my side: colorful pens, Sharpies, hand cream ~because my hands get SO dry in the winter~, Chapstick, Better Homes and Gardens and other magazines, and sticky notes in the caddy.
Being organized is so much easier when you keep everything contained. Small boxes, containers or caddies are a good solution for desk organization.
I have to admit, I was a bit inspired by my new business Stella & Dot for the color choices on this design!!
|~Don't mind the side of the desk. Yes, there is tape on it! Waiting to get a molding to finish the piece.|
This space makes me want to accomplish so much now! It feels refreshing, inspiring, joyful, inviting and organized!! In these cold days, I am giving the winter blues a new meaning for myself. ;)
