Anatomy Of A Desk

ANATOMY OF A DESK
I have been meaning to spruce up my desk for the longest time. As you can tell from the above picture it could use a few basic desk items and maybe a little update and a little less books on it. Call me nerdy, but I have always gotten a little excited over pens and pencils and just the sight of beautiful paper goods may make my heart skip a beat. Here are a few things I consider essential to a desk that should be included in the anatomy of a desk. Click on the name of the item, located below the image, for the link to the website. 

So you are probably thinking all the things I included are pretty typical except the tray. The reason for the tray is because I love the idea of setting pens, paper, pictures, and note cards on it. I just feel that adding a tray to a desk adds an element of design and sophistication.

What are some items you have or would like to have on your desk?

    1. I love the letter holder you put on your blog a few days ago, it's precious! And a pen/pencil is definitely essential to a desk; I think it looks neat to use a high ball glass or some other cock tail glass to hold pens & pencils!

  2. I need a letter holder and a new lamp! My lamp is so horrific and old. I've been holding off trying to find the perfect one. It has taken forever!

  3. I need sticky notes or tiny note pads that I can write down little reminders on. Those desk note cards are super cute! I have the same macbook case as you, but mine is purple!

    1. Anthropologie and the Paper Source have really cute sticky notes, I think I saw some Lilly Pulitzer ones as well on Lifeguard Press. I love that cover for my Mac it has lasted for years! When I was in the process of buying it I was actually debating between getting the color I have and the purple one!

    1. The polka dot pencils are great and The Le Pens look plain but they are my favorite pens of all time, great to write and doodle with!

  5. The Le Pens are my favorite pens too! I have a tray on my desk. My desk has a glass top so I used scrapbook paper and of course added a monogram :)
