10 things to buy for your home office

Whether you’re going back to school, starting university or simply going back to work after your holiday, I’m sure you’re dying to make a few changes in your home office.

I know I am. I’ve been moving my habitat table around at home, trying out different corners of our dining room/ my office.

home-office I’ve made a list of ten things to get you going and inspired for another season at your desk.

  1. First you need to get one of these beautiful Le sac en papier bags. It makes throwing out bits and pieces so much more stylish.
  2. What about the beautiful desk Overtime desk designed by Stina Sandwall
  3. You need a great chair. My pick would be About a Chair from Hay, with a beautiful pillow or a blanket.
  4. A beautiful desk lamp from Kaiser Idell.
  5. You need to buy a special cup just for you. It should be your special work cup and only be used, when you’re working. What about one from Design Letters.
  6. Find a print which will inspire you to do your best every day. I would pick something like this one from Etsy.
  7. You need some beautiful stationary. A notebook and pens. I always stash up on Muji pens and notebooks from Søstrene Grene.
  8. A new steel mesh board for all your clippings and inspiration.
  9. You need fresh flowers or green plants to brighten up your day. My pick would either be a black or maybe light pink glass vase from Lyngby Porcelæn.
  10. A few boxes will keep your workspace nice and clutter-free. I’m crazy about the beautiful ObjectBoxes designed by Maya Bille.

Monday Inspiration

My daughter started 2nd grade today, so I’ve got half the day off. It’s an amazing feeling seeing her in class with all her friends. She’s excited about new classes – including English and just getting back to school after the holiday and playing with her friends.

I was also at the day care with my little man this morning as well. It’s something I almost never get the chance to do, because I have to be at work so early. So here I am, at home, drinking a cup of tea and just thinking about what an amazing family I’ve got. I’m a lucky girl.

Here’s a glimpse of what I loved last week:

  • Yvonne Koné’s stunning new shop in Copenhagen, I cannot wait to stop by next time I’m in Copenhagen. Note to self: Must buy another one of her beautiful bags.
  • A home office, filled with beautiful things; I’m crazy about the table and Le sac en papier.
  • Cool news from Ylva Skarp. I’m pretty sure my mother and father bought the balance print for my birthday. On Friday I’ll know for sure.
  • And last but not least, Maria Harmuth‘s table. I’m thinking about creating a similar table. I’ve been looking for a new dining table, but it’s really not that easy finding something we both like.

Cool room for a little boy

Over the weekend I came across a beautiful mexican blog called Ale Besso. Alejandrina Bessoberto is the creative mind behind the inspiring blog. She’s a Art Freelance Graphic Designer and lives by the sea in Mexico with her family.

I feel in love with some of Ale’s own creations in her son Leonardo’s room. Leonardo is almost two-and-a-half years old – and what a lucky little boy. Ale’s idea behind the room was to create a fun place with geometric shapes. She has used her favourite colors – soft grey, blond wood, white and a touch of black in order to create this space for Leonardo.

Here’s a tour of his room for you to enjoy. Thanks Ale for letting me post your beautiful pictures.
