When your desk space is inspiring, clean, and organized it makes for a much more productive day. Take 10 minutes to organize your desk this morning whether you work from home or in an office. Anything that has not been utilized in the past month remove and place in storage. Open space is key. In terms of decoration or inspiration, change it on a quarterly or monthly basis. You'll know when you've seen the images around you enough or you're feeling stressed and bored. Make the space around you inspiring and beautiful. It will improve your work and help you to have a clear mind.
My old creative director used to have a clear cup with an array of beautiful pencils always sharpened. Something about this display made him seem very regal and perfect. I think they were just for show, and they worked perfectly on those who stepped in his office.
Note Post-It Holder.
Because you never know when you need to write a to-do or don't forget and you want to be INSPIRED by how amazing your note holder is compared to others (ha!)
Gem Paper weight.
An adornment used as a paperweight is a perfect desk accessory. Especially if you meet with clients. It's a way to show who you are and your impeccable style. PLUS it holds all the paper that you don't have piled up on your desk in place when there is a huge gust of wind...errrr
Let's be honest, a stapler is a staple (HA).. So find one that makes you happy, forget Staples plain black non-sense, find something you love.
Cool tape dispensers are a staple. I'm not sure why we have tape on our desks because tbh it's not used that often but if it's going to be there, make it a cool one.
