Get to Work: Our Favorite Desk Styling Tips


They say work is called “work” for a reason, but who says you can’t have a little fun along the way? At Nadeau, we strive to bring a bit of soul into your home, office, and workspace. Just a few simple adjustments can transform your desk from a distraction to an inspiration. Here’s how to make your desk work for you–and not the other way around:

  1. De-clutter. The key to an organized desk is only holding onto the things you absolutely need and giving them each a place to live (and returning those items to their home once you’re finished).
  2. Choose a meaningful item and make it visible. Your computer does not have to be the center of attention. Find something that inspires your work or keeps you centered (family, travel, etc.) and give it a prominent home on your desk.
  3. Keep it lively. Finding office-friendly plants are a breeze these days. Pick up a succulent, and you’ll be amazed at how it instantly brightens your workspace.
  4. Choose accessories wisely. Office supplies are necessary, but they don’t have to be evil. Swap out a boring filing system for a unique and stylish tray. Use a vase, mug, or glass for a pencil cup. Get creative and make it personal to you.
