Top tips to transform your desk from table-top jumble sale to Instagrammable workspace.
We’ve all heard the saying ‘tidy desk, tidy mind’. Apparently, an organised workspace does wonders for your creativity and can help you smash that To Do list before you’ve finished your morning latte. Plus, desks are *so hot* on Instagram right now.
In reality, our desks often reflect our busy workdays – piles of papers, trailing cables, approximately 23 ballpoint pens (only five of which actually work) and endless, endless Post-It notes. When the schedule’s jam-packed and you’re working to a deadline, function wins over form every time.
If you’re still hankering for that minimalist desk with the gleaming copper accessories, though, we’ve got a few top tips to take your workspace from admin basics to seriously stylish…
Storage is your friend
Clutter is so not chic – unless it’s artfully arranged, of course. For all those loose papers and old notebooks, invest in some stylish storage. These wire baskets can be fixed to the wall for that utility look, while this patterned storage box will add detail to your desk.
Upgrade your stationery
If your stationery collection consists of an A4 box file and couple of ballpoint pens you got free when you joined the gym, you need to reassess. Stylish stationery not only looks fab, but it’ll keep you more organised, too – when you’ve got a gorgeous new notebook, the To Do lists practically write themselves! We love this pack of three in navy and gold.
Add a memo board
A memo board is a great way to display your favourite postcards, art prints and photographs without creating clutter. Go grey with this cute magnetic version.
Finish off with greenery
A little bit of plant power is the perfect way to finish off your newly-stylish workspace. Go for a terrarium for that indoors/outdoors feel, or mix and match succulents in copper planters. And if you’re really not the green fingered type, these cute cactus vases make perfect pencil pots.
