Perhaps you’ve got a desk set-up on your kitchen bar or maybe you’re back in the office after a year of WFH? No matter whereabouts your workspace may be, it should always be a comfortable and creative space that fuels the imagination! Having a spot that’s dedicated to working will separate out work and play, helping you close the door on your workday, so to speak. A tip from us: make sure you invest in a decent chair – sitting on something supportive and comfortable 9-5 will look after your body as well as help with those brilliant ideas!

2. Get rid of clutter with stylish storage

We know what you’re thinking, ‘how can storage be stylish?!’ But hear us out! Colourful storage, like Martha’s blush Mustard locker, or shelves are a fantastic way to create an inspiring workspace by keep all of your chunky office items out of sight and out of mind whilst adding some character to your workspace. Saying that, not everything needs to be packed away. For the items you need close to hand, like your notebooks, planner or pens and pencils, use desk accessories, such as our new gold wire letter rack or gold wire document organiser that’ll make your desk look so darn good you’ll want to show it off to the world. 

3. Bring the outside in

We think no desk is complete without a plant or some flowers! No matter how little or large your workspace is, they brighten up any room AND have plenty of health benefits. Did you know house plants can reduce stress, increase creativity, purify the air AND more?! Impressive! Make sure you choose a plant pot that matches the rest of your workspace so it feels right at home on your desk and suits your style.

4. Add uplifting personal touches

Surround yourself with colourful personal touches in your workspace that make it feel like your own. Whether that’s art prints of some of your favourite places, polaroids of memorable moments or motivational phrases propped up in our solid brass round photo holder, personal touches really do help to create an inspiring workspace to help you through those tougher days. Display them with pride and make your workspace a place that fills you with joy every day of the week.

5. Pick stationery that empowers
