Our home offices should be a reflection of our personal style, not just a reflection of what we do for a living. (Because does anyone really want a space that screams "accountant"?) They should surround us with inspiration while keeping all the paperclips and post-its we need within reach.
My next couple of posts will be of some super-stylized workspaces that I'd love to work out of and the pieces I would use to create them in my own home. Hope they inspire you to spruce up your own desk!
Workspace Style #1: Ladylike & Elegant

Give your desk a decidedly feminine feel with the Brocade Bulletin Board and Pencil Cup from The Container Store.
Corral address books, envelopes, and notecards with elegant crystal bookends from Anthropologie.
Since we're all tracking appointments on iPhones & Blackberries these days, there's not much need for a big calendar anymore. This tiny desktop one from Lobird lets you know what day it is, and it's just so darn charming.
I love this mousepad from Anthropologie - it brings a little whimsy to your work. And is hopefully the only mouse you'll encounter there.
Keep paperclips in pretty glass jars like this one from Anthropologie.
