I looked long and hard for a white, multi-level paper sorter…I lucked out when I found this one at Home Sense. Literally, they were just putting out onto the shelves, and I got my hands on before they could even put it out!

The next day I went to a different location, and I found the create/design/inspire desktop organizer, of the same make and style, I had to pinch myself to make sure I was actually seeing things clearly :D.
I really tried to simplify my shelf styling this time around. Previously I had way too much out on my shelves, and you didn’t know where to look!
Here I have a simple gold and glass vase (which I still want to fill with some pretty floral or greenery), a framed quote, which I feel embodies how I feel when I enter my office (I feel darling whenever I walk in here!), and some pretty pink books and a sketch book that I actually intend to use when sketching out designs for my client projects.
This little nook houses my printer and my file organization. Below the printer table, I have a trash bin (which I plan on spray painting gold one fine day;), and a crate for recycling.)
The gold wired basket has me scratching my head, I bought it thinking I could keep my fabric samples in them when I’m working on a client project, but now I’m thinking I might prefer a wall file sorter in its place. That’s why I haven’t taken the tag off yet! :). Decisions, decisions.
I always buy pretty throw pillows in twos. So when I found this pillow for the chair behind my desk, I picked up a second pillow just in case I’d need it in the future. If you buy pillows in pairs, at least you can repurpose them on a sofa or a bed later on, when you feel that itch to redecorate…or is that just something that happens to me?
I didn’t have this second chair in my office originally, and it will probably be replaced later buy a cream loveseat or daybed (for the other side of my office, that’s not shown), once I find the perfect one! But for now, this chair completed my room, and I can always pull it up to my desk if I’m meeting with anyone in my office.
I’m also really proud of myself for minimizing the items on top of my desk! I used to fill this paper tray with loose papers, notes, mail, basically anything I was currently working on, or attempting to work on, one day. Now I have made this paper tray a home for my desk accessories, and it looks so much better!
