Sometimes it’s easy to overlook your home office when you’re designing and decorating your home. Preventing your workspace from turning into a desktop disaster is crucial for productivity and sanity. Having a beautiful office can actually increase your productivity as it becomes a place where you love to work. You might be surprised just how far a few touches go to make your space both comfortable and appealing. Keep scrolling to find five easy ways to re-vamp your desk with accessories.

Working from home has its challenges, as it can be much harder to focus than it is in a traditional office environment. For many of us, a clean workspace just isn’t enough. When your eyes wander from your computer screen or drifts north of your paperwork, wouldn’t it be nice if it landed on something that made you smile?

You might be surprised just how far a few touches go to make your space both comfortable and appealing. Below I have added a few items that can turn your desk space into your favorite place to be.


Declutter and simplify your work space with organization accessories. The Brokers Collection is functional, versatile and will add a touch of style to your desk. From filing mail to storing supplies, it’s your personal command center for the home office. Another great option is the Kate Spade New York Acrylic File Organizer. It features clear acrylic with gold accents that will inspire your personal best, every hour of the workday.

Add Some Plants

Having a few extra living things in the room can help brighten it up. Plants also add color, and some can even improve your air quality. Try adding a nice houseplant to a pretty pot and placing it next to your desk. You may also want to choose a lovely vase that you can add fresh flowers to throughout the week.

Fun Desk Supplies

Thank goodness for all of these brands who have introduced brightly colored, stylish desk supplies. Rifle Paper Co.’s Bon Voyage Calendar will add a sophisticated look to your office décor. The lake+loft Print and Magnetic Notepad Set features a vibrant flamingo art print and a pair of charming foil-accented notepads declaring ‘#goals’ and ‘Write It Down’. Spruce up your writing utensils with LEGO Gel Pens. Add your favorite LEGO bricks or minifigures for a fun, personal look. These would be great for back-to-school too.

Add Some Personal Items

Make the space feel like your own with a few of your favorite things. Consider adding framed photos of your friends and family, and set them along the side of your desk. You may even consider framing posters, quotes or newspaper clippings that mean something to you. Plus, if you collect items, such as fun memorabilia or seashells, add a few of those to the space.
