Steph and I work at an office building where everyone has cubicles but being the cutesy and organized type-A personalities we are, it’s just another little home to decorate.
I hate having papers everywhere because it will literally distract me from any work I need to do. I’ll be typing away furiously and I’ll catch some loose papers out of the corner of my eye and all my concentration goes out the window. You may be the same kind of person so I decided to show you all my cubicle and where to get all the neat stuff that will help you organize your desk in the cutest way possible.
Even if you don’t work at an office building, these items will look great in a home office as well 🙂
Don’t let your workspace get cluttered like Milton’s! (If you don’t get this reference, watch Office Space)
This is my cubicle! This is my home away from home. As you can see, I’ve got a few things to make it cute and comfy.
This tufted chair from Target is my favorite! When people come to visit me at my desk, I like to have a place for them to sit and hang out. A lot of you are probably like, ‘Why would you want your coworkers to hang around your desk? I hate mine’. But I lucked out working at a place where the people are pretty cool. I found this chair in the Target’s furniture clearance section about a year ago so I don’t think they have this exact one but check out their chairs here.
Target has the cutest chairs!
The solid pale pink pillow is from Target as well and is so velvety soft, everyone wants to steal it. The cute ‘hello’ pillow is from my friend Morgan (HI MORGAN!) who moved to Nashville for a rockstar life and left us behind. JK Morgan, love you!
Check out Target’s super cute collection of throw pillows here.
My calendar is from Rifle Paper Co. and if you don’t know about them yet, you should. I’m in love with everything Anna Bond does. Every year, I buy their appointment calendar and it’s gorgeous. You can get 2019’s calendar by clicking on the picture below 🙂 They also have smaller versions of their calendars that have maps of the world, inspirational quotes, lemons, and more!
If you haven’t noticed yet, I definitely have a gold/pale pink theme going on. I used to hate pink growing up but I fell in love with the pale pink color and now I’m obsessed.
Having lights around my desk makes me feel happier. It’s the twinkle I feel I deserve. I got these lights from Amazon here for $11. I got some twine and clothespins from my friend Ally who is also super obsessed with desk decor and hung up some Polaroid-sized pictures. I like to print these out from an awesome place called Social Print Studio. You can get 24 of these square prints for $12. They’re such a good size that I printed some out for my room and hung them up there as well. Check them out by clicking their logo below!
The monitor stand (that I don’t use for my monitor) is from Target. I tried to find it online but it doesn’t look like it’s on their website. I’m pretty sure I saw it in store still though!
I bought my pretty scissors from Anthropologie. They are $16 and you can get them on their website by clicking the picture below 🙂
My letterboard is from Felt Like Sharing on Amazon. You can get your own here. They have so many cute colors you can choose from depending on what your color scheme is. I could really go for some cake right now.
My stapler was a gift from my friend Kaylyn and I love it! I’m just a sucker for gold things. I found it at Target and attached the link to the picture below.
I got the drawers from Target as well (Target for the win) and my friend Ally loved it so much that she bought one of her own. You can get it from their website here. It’s a great place to keep things nearby while maintaining the aesthetic.
I also keep an exercise ball (the yellow, spiky thing in the bottom left corner) at my desk for those days that I can’t keep sitting in a desk chair. It also is a great distraction for me during conference calls 🙂
I have a mug and bowl set from Target that I love. I like having it so I’m not buying paper cups or paper bowls. Help out the environment, people.
I just recently bought this agenda from Anthropologie. It comes with a cute gold pen with black ink but I wanted a little more color so I chose a purple pen instead. You can get this planner from their website here.
That cute, hand-drawn picture of me with a large fry above the agenda was made by my friend Emily. She is so talented!! And she accurately captured my love for french fries.
You know how I hate loose papers? I decided to conquer this by getting a letter tray. I bought this little baby from Amazon and you can get yours here.
Pictures really make your area feel homey and remind you of all the people you get to hang out with after work so it’s perfect. That note on the left that looks like a small, pink notebook is from Rifle Paper Co. as well! You can get it for $8 on their website here.
I hope this helped you get started on decorating your office space. It’s so important to make sure that your workspace is somewhere you want to be! Otherwise, you’re going to dread every single moment. (Although let’s be real, most of us dread every single moment of work).
