Office Beauties







Hello! Yesterday turned into one of those rush, rush days, so I wasn't able to stop by and say hello to many of you, dear blog friends. Hopefully today will settle back into pleasant, boring routine *grins* and I'll have more time to visit!

I believe it was beautiful Seleta that sparked my renewed interest in office/studio spaces with one of her posts last week. I remembered that one of my ultimate favorite offices was Lovely Design's. The way she decorated and organized her space was both charming and beautifully efficient. I loved it! I'm posting photos found via Apartment Therapy. Also, the office supplies were some of my favorites from Paper Source. I'm a firm believer in the fact that you can never have too many office supplies. Pens and paper and folders abound in the recesses of my closet. I like pulling them out and just soaking up their utilitarian beauty! Psycho, I know.

I think I should take up a part-time job in a Paper Source for a discount! I love all their pretty supplies :)

Ah, say no more about having a surplus of office supplies...I get SO distracted in places like Staples and Paper Source...so many pens and markers and paper! It's hard to even think about walking out of one of those stores without something... :)

I really love this office! It seems so soothing, for an office!

Caroline said...

I love the pics...I could be so productive in an office like that!

I would probably like my job a lot more if I had beautiful things surrounding me. But boring white cubicle walls it is! Love your picks.

You can never...I repeat...never have enough office supplies. ;) Lovely picks my friend.

I agree that you can never have enough office supplies. I know that my business is doing well when I start running out of them. :)

How nice! Sharilyn is one of my favorite designers. Thanks for sharing. I am inspired to work on my own office/studio space now. Looks like you had a nice time in New Hampshire - great photos. Cheers.

Such a beautiful nook! I am poo-pooing this procrastinating I've been guilty of and seriously buying paint this weekend! I will post photos when I'm done (making a mess) :)

And I share your love of office supplies. I was in heaven when I used to work. I working in marketing but somehow was also in charge of purchasing all the office supplies. I tended to go a tad overboard at times but no one ever complained. I think EVERYONE loves office supplies!
