If you ever poke your nose around these parts of the on line world then you know I have been hunting madly for new office furniture. I moved to my current home in mid-February. We upsized largely so that I could move into a house that contained a room for a home office. So hurray, happy clapping I have my home office. (Late last year before we moved I had clients traipsing through my living room for training and strategy looking at me like I was off my rocker for working all over my main living area.) My new space is lovely, but for one thing – I have had a terrible time finding exactly what I want. The thing is I have an image in my head of how I want my dream home office to appear and function. I have random items and colours that I know fit with my overall vision. But the desk and chair and credenza have haunted me.
Maybe I am too fussy. I have dragged several friends out shopping with me many days this past winter and we have travelled many miles up and down Highway 401. I know I really must have a gorgeous desk. What do you think of the Whalen above? I know also that I have to have a functional chair mat because of the carpet in my room. I really don’t want to wreck that. And organizational items are a must. See the file folders above and binder clips and labels? The Post-It page flags are so useful. Crucial for a busy home office. Also I really want an accent chair that is fun and funky. Contemporary in style. Then there is the artwork. I have that already. A gorgeous horizontal piece with tulips and smatterings of fresh greens. It’s inspiring me to choose complementary shades. I think these accent chairs in the collage above work well with it. Also hello, portable Canon Pixma printer? Yes please.
Anyways I spied this @StaplesCanada home office contest and thought I’d take a chance and enter. You can still do the same. Also while you are at it go check out Tammy’s entry here. Good luck!! Open until the end of this month. What do you think of these items?
Here are the directions:
This is my entry. Thanks @staplescanada for hosting this contest.
