A New Year…2018! A time to clean up, start fresh, make resolutions (if you do that) and get organized. While I didn’t make many changes in here, there’s nothing like starting the year off with a clean desk! You know, and then you have somewhere pretty to organize your schedule and make the plans for a great year! Here’s my top 5 must haves to make your desk space pretty and personal 💗
1. Flowers: fresh or faux
Whether it’s a fresh cut arrangement, a small flowering plant or a cheap bunch from the grocery store, there’s nothing like fresh flowers. They instantly make a space feel cheerful. Not to mention they smell great and sometimes it just feels good to treat yourself. Pick up an extra bunch for your bestie, co-worker or Mom and make their day special too 💐 If I’m in between fresh flowers, I like to have a few small faux arrangements on hand to stand in ☺️
2. Add a pillow or throw
A pillow or throw (especially in winter) adds instant warmth and coziness to your workspace and says “get comfy”. Choose something that goes with your colour palette or seasonal theme. I’m still loving soft pinks and I’m finding ways to incorporate it wherever I can 💗
This is your space (assuming you’re not sharing) so be creative and surround yourself with art or photographs that inspire and make you happy. These watercolour prints are neutral and timeless and add a very stylish touch to my desk. Love them!
4. A candle
Burning my favourite scent while I’m making my to-do list, meal planning or working on a blog post is one of my favourite calming things to do. It feels like I’m doing something deliberate and special just for me.
Probably the most important thing to get organized for the year ahead! Although I keep most appointments and commitments in my phone (as I’m sure you do too) sometimes it’s nice to see the week or month at a glance. Call me old-fashioned, but it feels like a simple pleasure 💗 I enjoy the act of writing it down.
Starting off the year with a clean fresh desk feels so good! Whether you have a whole room to yourself or a smaller shared space like me, you can make it pretty and personal just by adding a few of your favourite things.
Hope your year is off to a great start!
