Add Color to the Office

Oh Hiya!

Meg here, and summer is swiftly approaching! When the sun is shining and the flowers are blooming we all want to bring an extra burst of color into the office as well. Here are some of my favorite creative ways to bring a little pop of color to any office space.

An easy way to brighten up any space is to start by organizing. Start the process by neatening up your desk and taking care of the clutter. It’s a quick step to start opening up desk space and it will serve a dual purpose of keeping you organized and prepared. If you find you need a few more organizers, look for bright colors to keep your things neat and in style. Once your desk is open and clear of clutter you can start adding in some other bright décor!

I just love my Scotch Flower Tape Dispenser. It brings the perfect sunshine cheer to my office space and it looks so much cuter than a plain dispenser. Why not bring a little personality to your office supplies? While you’re switching out your plain tape dispenser, trade out your stapler as well. My Leitz 5504 Full-strip Stapler is another excuse to show off some color. I have the bright orange stapler but they come in so many cute colors that you can match to almost any office theme!

It may seem like a small step, but I like to switch my coffee mug every so often. Whether you crave a caffeinated cup of joe or prefer to sip hot tea in the morning, a bright new mug or tumbler can bring a smile to your face while you check your morning email. Pick one with an eye-catching design or pick-me up quote and you’ll have a great conversation starter as well.

Sometimes my black pens can be a bit dull when writing notes so I like to bring some color to each meeting with my Zebra Z-Grip Basics LV Ballpoint Stick Pen. I love the pop of blue ink, it makes my to-do list so much more exciting. Whatever color you prefer, spring is the perfect time to switch out your every day pens for some brighter shades.

Do you have any photos on your desk? Take a tip from home design and change out the frames around the pictures for the new season. It’ll give your beloved photos new life and bring some bright personality to your workspace. You can also use this time to switch out the photos or bring in a few more! Another easy idea is to exchange the frames for cute decorative tape and make a little gallery wall. What better way to show off your personality?

With summer coming up right around the corner, now is the perfect time for a little desk redecorating. Whether you’re looking for a dramatic change or just want a little extra spring color, our list has got you covered.
