If you’re currently looking for tips on designing your workspace, continue reading to discover some of the unique items which I currently keep in my office.
- A classic monogrammed leather agenda
As I prefer to use a traditional agenda to jot down my appointments, meetings and tasks, I use a classic yet sophisticated monogrammed leather agenda to jot down all of my business related appointments. I love the fact that even if my smart phone runs out of battery, or if I leave it in the car, I still have access to all of my important appointment details.
- A spacious four drawer filing cabinet
In order to keep all of my business related documents in the right place, I use a large, four drawer filing cabinet in order to keep my documents neatly stored away. Having a filing cabinet like the ones from Furniture at Work, right next to my desk also ensures that my desk remains tidy and isn’t cluttered with documents, folders and random pieces of paper.
- A medium sized cork board
I use a medium sized cork board on my office wall in order to pin important pieces of paper, that I don’t want to lose. As an example, I often pin business related letters that I’ve received in the mail on my cork board, such as invitations to industry events.
- A one of a kind, piece of art
To add a bit of color into my office, I asked my friend whose a talented artist to paint me a one of a kind piece of art which I could proudly display on my office wall. Not only does the painting my friend created for me, which depicts a sunny beach brighten up my room but it also makes me smile each time I look at it as it was painted by a friend and is a one of a kind, unique painting.
If you are also lucky enough to have a friend or family member who is a talented artist, it’s also well worth asking your loved one if they’d be happy to make something special for your office.
- Floating shelves
A the recommendation of a friend, I decided to hang floating shelves on the wall behind my work desk. On each shelf I display trinkets which have a special place in my heart. As examples, some of the items which are currently displayed on my floating shelves include framed family photographs, a vase which was made by my niece and a couple of my favorite travel souvenirs.
- Fresh flowers
Not only do fresh flowers make my office a more inviting space to spend time in but the flowers which I display in my office also give my office a fresh, natural aroma. If you don’t want to pay for fresh flowers on a regular basis, you can also opt to purchase a small pot plant, which will provide you with fresh flowers for months to come.
