How to Create an Inspiring Office Space

If you are like me, you probably spend quite a bit of time in front of your computer. Because of this, I want my office space to be organized, functional, and inspiring. You may remember I stole a corner of our Living Room to create an office nook several months ago.

Now that I have been working there for a while, I have made a few changes to the original space to make it more inspiring and functional.

I moved the vinyl wall decor from above my desk to above the cork board. It seemed to fit a little better. On my cork board, I hung the mermaid sign my hubby got me for Christmas, along with a few notes of encouragement from friends.

I also hung a couple of pieces of wall decor I found for a few bucks at TJ Maxx above my desk. The "M" is obviously for my name and "Joy" is my word for this year. It reminds me to find joy in the things I am doing.

You should also add quirky and/or colorful pieces to make the space fun, like this retro kitchen chair in turquoise (of course!) A bright planner keeps me organized with both my personal life and blog calendar. Those cute little plastic shells were sent to me by my Instagram friend, Jessica and are perfect for holding small supplies, like mini binder clips and paper clips.

I also love pretty file cabinets. This picture is actually from my friend's office, but I want to do this to a file cabinet I picked up at a thrift store a few years back. She used contact paper and chalkboard stickers...easy peasy!

I also added a couple of tech accessories from Toddy Gear (in my favorite color, of course) to my desk area.

As a blogger, I use my phone a lot, which drains the battery. I have a small portable charger I keep in my purse and I keep this larger Power Bank on my desk. It has ports for charging two devices, which is perfect for the family with multiple gadgets (like us!)

I also received a wedge stand for my phone and a microfiber Smart Cloth that is perfect for cleaning everything from my phone screen, to glasses, and even my camera lens!

You may as well have your tech accessories match your style, since you need them anyway! Toddy has tons of designs and also does personalized customization too! They also come in this handy drawstring bag so you can easily throw them in your purse or laptop bag when on the go!
