My Office + Organized Home Office Products

Once you get on an organizing roll, it’s hard to stop (at least for me!)  After organizing my desk, it motivated me to tackle my bookcases in my home office. They really weren’t bad, but needed to be streamlined and I wanted them to have a refreshed look.  To help me reach my goal, the folks at See Jane Work at Office Depot asked me to select items from their new collection. Combining fresh style and organization, the See Jane Work collection offers super stylish office accessories in a variety of fun patterns (chevron, herringbone, stripes florals, and more) and color palettes (aqua blue, shades of pink, black, white, and more). They are perfect for mixing and matching. Best yet, they are really affordable!

To coordinate with items I already owned, I selected items from the See Jane Work Collection in hues of aqua and white. To corral my kids artwork and over-sized school papers, I picked at a pair of decorative art boxes. I love them. They have an overlapping magnetic lid closure which is really slick! I also added a few white magazine files to conceal mismatched file folders, shelter magazines and home decor catalogs. Adding pops of white can help a space look fresh, airy and modern.

To keep my active product samples easy to get to, I selected a fabric bin with fun grommet handles and herringbone detail inside.

My client projects are organized using binders. When I spotted the herringbone in blue, I knew they’d work with my shelf and company’s image. Next to the binders, I placed a series of white decorative storage boxes. They are now used to organize my fabric samples by color.

I can’t tell you how many readers say, “I saw a hexagon or honeycomb pattern and thought of Simplified Bee.” As a nod to the shape, I added a new art print and placed it next to a current fave – succulents.

I also picked up this darling “Be Brave” print as a reminder that God is with me at all times.

I love my “new” bookcase! What’s your favorite element?

Happy organizing,

      They are from Ikea, but unfortunately I don’t think they make this style anymore. xo cristin

        Thank you for your reply. It is hard to find parson style clean lines that also have solid sides.

    It is always nice to get organizing ideas..especially from a fellow designer. I’m always creating chaos and putting things back is a constant struggle for me. Thank you for the inspiration!
