Office Merriment

Thanks to Staples for sponsoring today’s post!

One of my favorite things about the holidays is spreading cheer throughout my home. No surface is safe. Seriously, there’s no such thing as too much color, tinsel, lights, or glitter. As Ina Garten would say “Who wouldn’t love that?”

After traveling quite a bit recently, I’m back home and settled in again for the remainder of the year. It’s now time to turn on the Christmas tunes and transform my home into a little holiday heaven. I’m starting in the office.

When I posted recently about my holiday cards, I told you that I’ve joined my friends at Staples on their 2014 Holiday Council. As the Lifestyle Expert, I have the pleasure of sharing ideas and beautiful ways to celebrate the season. So I was super excited to learn that Cynthia Rowley recently teamed up with Staples for a beautiful new home office collection.

I got my hands on a few of the products and have had fun incorporating them into my holiday office decor.

There are two different themes in Cynthia Rowley’s fashion-inspired collection. The first theme is this floral.

Sometimes floral can go wrong, but this is oh-so right! The deep navy background makes the flowers pop. Plus, there are gold accents here and there. (You know that is right up my alley.)

Paired with holiday ornaments and a tree, the collection works beautifully for the season.

The other theme in the collection is all about gold!

Okay, first things first. Can we talk about the matte gold mini stapler? Dying. All I want for Christmas is a matte gold mini stapler. As Cynthia Rowley says, “If you love your workspace, you’ll love your work a little more.”

The rest of the collection is just as stunning. Every office needs storage space, and these Gold Abstract document boxes are perfect for filing away mail or all of those holiday shopping receipts.

Matching pencil cups, notebooks, and a pencil sharpener complete the set.

I also think the entire Cynthia Rowley collection would make an outstanding gift for the holidays. (Seriously, I’m giving everyone a gold stapler.) There’s a little bit of everything including pouches, organizers, notepads, staplers, … the list goes on.

Now, my only problem is deciding which theme I want to adorn my office this season. Since I love both, I’ll probably use a combination. How about you? Will you go gold or keep it colorful?

This post was created as part of my collaboration with Staples. As always, all of the opinions, thoughts, and ideas in this post are my own.

Holiday Letter Bling

Hey there, friends! I’m back with another 10-Minute Decorating Idea. You may remember that I teamed up with some of my blogger friends and host Laura of Finding Home this year to share decorating tips and tricks that can come together in fewer than 10 minutes. With the holidays almost upon us, we figured that […]

Pretty in Pink

Believe it or not, I’ve been decorating for Christmas since early October. Well, sort of. Last year I received a couple trees from Treetopia and used them in decking out my home for the holidays. (You can check the trees out here and here.) Treetopia was so pleased with my mad tree trimming skills that […]

How to Brine a Turkey

A week ago I cooked a turkey for the first time. I’d never really had a reason to make one before. For Thanksgiving, my mom, grandma, or some other family member has always had turkey duty. I was just in charge of eating duty. You might be wondering what prompted me to finally cook a […]

Tiramisu Martini

Okay. Okay. I know I’ve been gushing about my recent cruise, but it was so magical and memorable, that I just can’t stop talking about. If you’ve never been on a cruise, it’s definitely something I hope you will get to experience at some point in your life. I was very lucky to go on […]

A Year of Pie: Cinnamon Roll Apple Pie

Oops. With all that’s been happening lately, I totally forgot about my year of pie. Sorry about that. I’m going to attempt to squeeze in a few more pie recipes before 2015. Sound good? I’ve been so excited to make this pie ever since I saw the idea for its unique crust on Pinterest. And […]

Office Updates

Happy Monday, friends! It’s been months since I’ve had you all in my office space, so I figured today we could quickly pop in and check out what’s new. Although there haven’t been any major changes, I did get a new rug, so things are looking different and more pulled together. Since I first turned […]

2014 Holiday Cards

I guess this is my first official holiday post of 2014. I still can’t wrap my brain around the fact that, like it or not, the season is upon us. Every year I try to keep ahead of things in hopes of getting as much done as possible. However, I never even finished decorating the […]

Decorating with Travel Souvenirs

Over the past couple years I’ve had the chance to travel to some wonderful places for either work or vacation. I’ve been to New York City, Ireland, Chicago, Los Angeles, Portland (OR), Atlanta, and most recently, a cruise with Carnival through the Caribbean. It’s been a whirlwind, and I’ve loved every minute of it. No […]
