Getting Organized :: Stylish Desk Accessories

As we look forward to 2014, many of us are setting new year’s goals and resolutions. High on most lists is getting organized (no surprise here I’m sure!). For me I struggle with desk organization and aim to keep it more tidy this coming year. The right desk accessories are key to creating an efficient work-space, yet so many are ho-hum and aren’t pretty. That’s why I’m thrilled about teaming up with See Jane Work at Office Depot to help me create a beautiful, streamlined desk that reflects my personal style. Their collection combines fresh style and smart organization – can’t get better than that! See Jane Work’s chic office accessories come in fresh patterns and color palettes perfect for mixing and matching. I selected items in hues of blue, pink and white and love how it coordinates with the items I already owned.

Organizing Tip: Write down your list of to dos and cross them off as they are completed – prioritize them for even more efficiency! Here I’m using See Jane Work’s “To Do” sticky notepad!

See Jane Work’s desktop letter sorter in a blue and white herringbone pattern (above) is so chic and I love how it keeps my stationary close at hand. Awe, doesn’t it feel good to be organized?

Happy new year and happy organizing,

Oh (faux) Christmas Tree

Yes I did. Call me crazy. I’ve decorated the Christmas tree already. With Thanksgiving running so late this year, I decided “what the heck!” Don’t worry though, it won’t be a pine-needle-less, fire hazard by the holiday. It’s an artificial tree sent to me by Tree Classics. I’m super impressed with the quality – it’s hard to tell it’s not real even when you are in the same room. The only thing I miss about having a live tree is the lovely pine scent that fills the house.

I selected the  7 1/2′ classic Fraser tree with clear lights because of it’s narrow profile – great for small rooms. Love that the lights were already on the tree and that they are LED! Assembly took me about 30 minutes from start to finish. I did have to pull in my hubby to put on the top layers though.

This year I went with a crisp white and rich gold color palette for the tree decorations. Tons of white feathers were placed throughout the tree and along the top of the Chinese cabinet. I also added a new new items this year such as the fab faux fur tree skirt (above), owl snowglobe (next to the white peonies above) and felt snowflake ornaments (below) I picked up at West Elm!
