How to Dress Up Your Desk

Ever wish you were vacationing in Fiji instead of sitting at your desk? Me too. 

That’s why I dress up my office to feel more like luxury and less like work. Maybe I can’t bring the beach to me… but, I can create a super chic desk. I’m a believer in loving your work area, because it’s what boosts creativity and drives us to work long hours [to tackle those dreams]!

Here are some of my favorite desk accessories that will dress up anything from a cubicle to a corner office overlooking Manhattan. I especially love the idea of keeping an inspiring book close by, or creating a board with encouraging quotes.

Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress. Working hard for something we love is called passion.” – Simon Sinek
