Most home offices look somewhat similar -- lots of neutrals, with black, brown or white furniture and office supplies in every possible shade of beige staring back at us when we walk through the door.
Adding some small touches of color and some special and unique accessories can bring your office to life, reflect your personal style and likely even inspire you.
We've rounded up some fun pieces to help you take your home office from cluttered and uninspiring to organized and cheerful.
Some of our favorite accessories and supplies to brighten your space
We love this colorful 8 Days-A-Week planner from See Jane Work that acknowledges just how much we each need an extra day in the week.
We can't promise that filing will ever be fun, but these stylish roses file folders from Paper Source sure help to take the sting out of the task.
Sometimes, when you're tackling tedious office work, you just need a smile. We think this WTF stamp from Plasticland is cheekily funny.
Jotting down your to do list is far more pleasant when you're using a unique notepad. We're in love with this pretty bird notepad from Paper Source.
We think that every office space needs at least a touch of whimsy. We dare you to place this magnetic bird on your desk and try not to smile.
With more than forty colors woven into it, the Zak rug from Crate and Barrel is the perfect foundation to infuse your workspace with vibrant color. This rug will see you through years to come, as it lends itself to nearly any color change.
We are in love with this gorgeous linen pinboard from Pottery Barn and think it would be perfect to use as a central spot for family information or maybe even as an inspiration board.
Problem solved^ If we have to spend time in our home office, we think it should be the prettiest and most functional space possible. With the right accessories, you just might create a space that you never want to leave.
