Guest Picks: Decorate a Creative Home Office for This Fall
It's time for an office update. I am completely driven by the weather change and upcoming chilly fall temperatures to create a warm and cozy atmosphere in my office that will keep me inspired through all of my upcoming projects. The products I've chosen have an understated vintage-industrial vibe and come in mostly muted and neutral hues. Fall seems to be the ideal season for a home office update, don't you agree? — Eleni from My Paradissi
Vintage General Cement Radio Dial Belts Storage Drawer - $199
How cool is this vintage drawer for storing your files? I love the antiquated orange type on the black background.
Mercury High-back Leather Office Chair - GBP 477
This is the prettiest office chair I've seen in ages. The tan leather matches the shiny metallic parts beautifully, and the result is equally classy, ergonomic and casual. Love it!
Sawhorse Desk, Mei Red - $199.95
I love trestle desks because they are casual, simple and subtly industrial. This one has a perfect reddish hue as well.
Lore Table & Desk Lamp, Marigold - $175
This is the typical task lamp — with a twist. I love the adjustable arm that looks like a lever and the mustard yellow hue.
Typography Poster, 'C' - EUR 29
This extra large "C" print is awesome. The rest of the letters are designed in a different yet complementing way. They look so cool all together on the wall.
Concrete Large Format Tape Dispenser - $35
Concrete products can be so fun! This tape dispenser is so sleek and simple, with that unfinished light gray shade. I'd love to have it on my desk.

How cute is this deep yellow retro phone? I'd love to have one on my desk to remind me of the simpler, non-digitalized days.

Here's a fun alternative to a desk. This wall-mount cabinet opens up to a practical laptop desk with lots of storage space for its size.
Rug Ba0181, Hanoi - GBP 95
This handmade rug has a beautiful black and white pattern that balances between folkloric and contemporary extremely well.
Photographic Black Metal Pendant Light - GBP 160
I love the shape and color of this pendant. Its diameter is a bit bigger than usual, which will add a subtle industrial tone to the room.
Telescoping Photo Stand - $18.75
I can think of a thousand reasons why these photo stands are worthy of standing on my desktop. They can hold business cards, notes, reminders, magazine scraps and so many other things that would otherwise be lost under the pile.
Newgate Large Bubble Clock, Cream Face - GBP 51.29
Love, love, love this bubbly wall clock! It's so curvy, and the digits and hands are so big and look so retro. It would make a great statement piece on any wall.
Hay Brass Scissors - EUR 10
Am I spoiling myself a little too much for wanting these golden scissors? Well, not at this price!
Wood Grain Eco Notebook - $13.50
The realistic wood grain print on these notebooks looks so hip. I'd love to have one to keep notes and to-dos in and be able skip the digital choices for a while.
Pivot Book Glass Photo Frame - $45
When it comes to framing photos, I believe that the simpler the frame, the better. This one looks like an open book and has a really thin metallic frame that I love.
Piet Hein Eek Scrap Wood Wallpaper - GBP 199
Wood makes a room feel so cozy. This scrap wood wallpaper takes that feeling a bit further and adds an industrial and rustic vibe to the space.
Kilim Pillow, Pastel Relic - $84
I always use a small pillow on my office chair to support my back during the long hours of sitting. I love this kilim one for the distinct folkloric touch it would bring into to my office.
Enamel Coffee Pot, Ash Gray - $58.95
I like to stock lots of hot tea in my office during the colder days. That way I don't have to head to the kitchen for refills. This teapot is too pretty to miss.
Daborn Yellow Wool Mix Armchair - GBP 600
Admittedly, this one is a bit out of my budget, but I couldn't help but fall in love with its yellow hue. And it just looks oh-so-comfy to spend hours in.
