The office is one of my favorite places to decorate! Whether I was working my corporate job and had a cubicle or office, or now that I work from my home office, I LOVE surrounding myself with my favorite things. I have always said that I spend SO much of my day in an office working, so I want to at least love my surroundings as much as I can! I love having my favorite things around to enjoy each day.
You can see here on the credenza behind my desk that I have artwork done by friends of mine that are very special to me, a couple of my awards, my favorite business related and motivational books, some of my favorite photos of family, friends and team members, and the icing on this cake is my chandelier! It is a room I enjoy being in. I know it looks like I have a lot of stuff, but every piece has meaning to me, so I indulge in having it all on display in my office area. My advice when it comes to decorating your office is to make it a place you will enjoy being for long periods of time. Surround yourself with beautiful things and reminders of all that you love.
You will notice I don’t have a lot of paper on my desk. I keep paperwork in drawers so that I feel organized. I don’t have the typical in-box. I have an “in-drawer” so anything that needs to be handled goes in there. I love keeping my desk clutter free of paperwork and things I am working on. The only paperwork that stays visible is my Planner. Keeping my day organized is very important to me. That, and my favorite cup so that I am drinking plenty of water all day long!
What are some of your favorite things to have in your office space? I hope it’s a wonderful place that you enjoy being in!
