Happy Friday! I can’t believe that the month of January ends tomorrow — it just flew by! This month at my house has been hectic. Christmas decorations went “bye bye” on the 3rd, the girls went back to school the following week, my family room is being renovated and I started to get organized in my home office for 2015. So let me take you through a quick timeline of my office redo project as it drives my top 12 office decor you need now for organizing your desktop.
Last fall I started redecorating my home office and its almost done. First I got my built-in desk spray painted in Benjamin Moore White Dove OC-17. Forgive the quality of the images — these were all taken with my IPhone.
Then I got my office walls painted also in White Dove for a seamless look but added a feature wall in black and white stripes…..very ala Kate Spade.
I did a quick Ikea Hack with the KALLAX shelving by adding doors and drawers for office organization and then added this fabulous gold lion head hardware which I also used for my build-in desk.
I then got my white Eiffel chairs spraypainted gold for some additional glam. My motto is “All Gold, All the Time.”
Had Tonic Living create a window valance for me in this delicious dalmation dot fabric trimmed with hot pink ribbon — the accent colour in my new office.
I did a quick DIY with my corkboard and recovered it in the matching dalmation print fabric that is on my new window valance. I also added some antique brass studs and pink ribbon that matches the valance for some added glam.
See the ugly brown corkboard from the 1st image above……well this is how it looks now! Happy Dance!
Then I started having fun decorating my desktop.
And now I finally get to the point of today’s blog post! Below are my top 12 favourite items to help keep you organized for 2015 and help make your desk look pretty at the same time. And its pretty obvious that my favourites all lean towards the new colour scheme of my office – Black and white stripes, polka dots, pink and lots of gold!
1) Ikea RANARP light Love this lamp! I added a pretty pink magnetic flower to dress it up! 2) 3) 7 – 12) All items from Indigo — they have the best office accessories & décor from Kate Spade to their own private label cute pens and file folders. 4 – 6) All items from Target Canada — I think everyone has a pair of these gold scissors from Nate Berkus. Love my gold dachshund tape dispenser and these black & white striped binders are the best for keeping client projects organized.
