Guest Picks: Fire Up an Inspiring, Organized Desk
Dream big with desk accessories and organizers that motivate while they look great
I work at my desk nearly all day long, so I like to keep it organized, fresh and inspiring. Here are a few items that I use myself, as well as several tips on how I like to keep everything in order. — Bonnie from Going Home to Roost
Keeping jotters at your desk gives you the perfect place to write down ideas, sketches and to-do lists. An added bonus is that you'll reduce your use of sticky notes.
Just a simple alarm clock will help you keep track of the time. I know when I work at my desk, the time always seems to sneak by.
I find that keeping a set of beautiful note cards at my desk makes writing to friends and family a much simpler task. It's easy to get inspired by lovely little things and want to share them with others as well.
Let your everyday objects inspire you. What would you attempt if you knew that you couldn't fail?
Keep your notes, mail and other papers organized with these beautiful ceramic holders. They're perfect for small desk areas and inspired spaces.

Journaling is something I'm admittedly not very good at, but I still enjoy keeping beautiful journals around — especially ones like this that inspire change.
Keeping pretty thank you notes at my desk always helps remind me to write them. I love these floral ones. They're a lovely way to express gratitude.
These storage pieces are made from natural canvas and hand-stitched with white accents. I think keeping papers, sketches and notes in them would be a beautiful way to stay organized.

One of my favorite ways to update my workspace is to add a new calendar each year. I especially love this botanical one from Snow & Graham.
These handcrafted bone scissors might actually make the task of opening mail something to look forward to. No more paper cuts — yay!
I love to dress up my bulletin board with cute thumbtacks, photos and sketches. These fabric-covered floral tacks would be the perfect addition.
This gray felt pencil holder is classy and modern. The hand-sewn cross-stitching gives it a crafty kind of feel.
For all those nights you're at your desk after the sun goes down, a pretty desk lamp will keep you working away.
Keeping inspirational artwork at my desk is another way to stay focused and inspired. This quote by Thich Nhat Hanh illustrated by Katie Daisy would be the perfect daily reminder.
Keeping beautiful writing utensils on hand is also an easy way to keep yourself inspired to write notes and thank you cards. Why not enjoy every little detail in life, right down to your pencils?
