The Art of Decorating your Desk

The Art of Decorating your Desk

On an average, women tend to spend 8 hours at their work desks, 5 days a week. That’s about 160 hours a month! Clearly, a sizable chunk of your time. Seated here, you’re expected to have some of the most productive hours of your work day. You need inspiration, motivation, occasionally some humor and an environment that’s conducive to work in. You need pick me ups when you feel frustrated, demotivated or are just suffering from those Monday Blues. 

With some of these ideas, our aim is to give you ideas that will make your desk look chic while also being functional in terms of creating an environment that will not only make you more productive, but also help you find joy in activities that can otherwise seem mundane.

Go Green!

Bring some life to your desk - literally. Plants can have a soothing effect on us during our busy and hectic work days. They help us remain rooted and make us feel like we’re close to nature.

You could get succulents or a terrarium (a oasis of plants in a glass jar), which are easy to maintain and are visually pleasing.

Make it your own:

Offices can be sterile environments and one way to make peace with this is to make your corner of world (your work space), uniquely your own. A coffee cup that screams you, pictures of your closest friends and family, postcards that are memories of your travels, small pieces of art you’ve attempted in your spare time, books or stationery that are unique to your style.
