Office Space

Working from home 3 days per week definitely has it's perks; you know...waking up and stumbling into a room right down the hall from your bedroom, zero traffic to fight, a full coffee pot at your disposal, and being able to join in on conference calls all in the comfort of your jammies (or workout clothes, if you're anything like me), to name a few. 

That being said, I've always and forever been a huge fan of totally decking out your office. I mean, if you're going to spend more time at your desk than you do in your bed, you might as well enjoy every bit of it, right? I went ALL out on when decorating my bedroom and I'm only in there 7 hours max per day. Why would I NOT do the same to my office? 

Point being...whether you work from home, in a cube, or you have a lush corner office on the penthouse floor at an oil and gas company, I inspire you to spice up your office space (and your life, if you're having a good time.) Ten points to the person who can guess that song! ;)

While I still have quite a ways to go when it comes to putting the finishing touches on the office (ahem...and the rest of our house) we've made a lot of progress lately and I feel the need to document such a thing so you'll just have to deal with it, k?



Office space essentials:


A darling coffee mug...as if coffee in and of itself isn't enough to make me happy in the morning.

 Candles. Specifically the kind that come in adorable mason jars. (Thanks, Katie!)

Inspirational books and LOTS of them. The 4 books stacked vertically are definitely some of the best I've read to date. 

DIY shelves made out of nothing more than a couple of "L" brackets & screws. 
Serves two purposes. 1) gives a few of your books homes 2) makes an awesome decorative shelf

A daybed. Because let's be honest, I'll always be naptime's biggest fan.

 The newest Lilly agenda. Obsessed doesn't even begin to explain my love for this mumbo jumbo 8.5" x 11" mother of all planners. It's beautiful, really. (Full photo tour here.)





 The colors. The tabs. The stickers. The tiny little details on every single page. Le sigh...I can't wait to fill mine up with important dates and events to come! Get yours here!

 Little bits of happy

 Big, fat, clumsy puppy paws that hide perfectly under your desk chair. :)

The latest issue of Success mag

A lil' greenery

And the most precious, furry co-worker you ever did see. 
Definitely an essential in my office. Definitely.
