For me, doing work at home seems a little more enjoyable when you have a pretty office space. Last summer when I was studying for pharmacy boards, I decided to repaint my black desk a mint green in an attempt to get more excited about studying (it kind of worked). After I passed boards I had no desire to sit at that desk anymore, but now that I’m blogging, I really needed a place to “do work” other than the couch. So, here I am back at the mint desk, but this time I added some adorable accessories and accents to complete my workspace retreat.
Trinket trays. Instead of fumbling through drawers for a paperclip, sticky note, or earphones I’m utilizing a stylish “catch all” for convenience and organization. These diamond trinket trays from Plum and Post are absolutely adorable. I love the different colors and the crisscross pattern on the bottom. Since they come as a set of three you can use them all over your home! I’m thinking bedside table for jewelry, bathroom counter for lip gloss, or entryway table for car keys. The best part…they are on sale now for only $7.80!! Be sure to check out the other trinket tray shapes/styles they have here.

Inspirational Quote. We all need that pick me up from time to time and there’s no perfect place than right on your desk. Remind yourself why you are awesome; you deserve it! You can get free printable quotes and other pretty pictures from Fab ‘N Free or download my “Follow Your Arrow” creation by clicking here. Be sure you top it off with a chic frame like this one! It’s only $15 and I love the Aztec print! Plum and Post has several frames on sale right now, so pick the one that best suits your style. You can never have too many frames, right?
Functional Décor. I’m all for [what I like to call] functional décor. Wall clocks are great statement pieces and, what do you know, they tell time, too! This whimsical clock was just what I needed to hang above my desk. It would look great in a bedroom or dining room also.
Ok, how cute is this owl?? I thought he looked perfect next to the clock. Since he is made of wire, you can use him as a “pinning board” so to speak. Use paperclips or clothespins to attach reminder notes, business cards, or even pictures. You know where else he would look great? A nursery! Did I mention he is only $4.40?
Pretty pencils and gold scissors. Basically, it is all you need to conquer the world. That’s all I’m going to say about that. Oh, and chocolate. A lot of chocolate.
