Office Decor

Have you ever looked around your office and felt like it needed something to make it feel more homey and inviting? Ever wanted your office to inspire you to do great work? We have too (daily)…so we put together some of our favorite tips for decorating your office, no matter what size it is, so that you can do your best in your perfect work space!

  1. Add a plant…or ten!

Having a plant can improve your mood and even purify your air! There are lots of low-sunlight plants that do well indoors. Succulents and cacti are also easy plants to own because they take almost no water and can fit in any space, but come in such unique varieties that it’s like having a tropical oasis.


2. Inspirational Quotes

LEAF 2 has a quote on her wall that she loves even after a year of it hanging there in all of it’s black-and-white-office-printer-paper-glory. A great way to take it to the next level is to have your favorite quote framed in fancy print (a la Etsy). Or better yet, our friend @nutmegaroo makes beautiful inspirational art, if you’re in need of some ideas.

3. Pretty Magnets

We love these cute magnets with (you guessed it) more inspirational quotes. You may be thinking, “but I don’t have a fridge in my office.” No problem- remember the side of your computer processor is metal and often the edges of a window, if you are so lucky as to have one!


4. Personal Lighting

Sometimes the fluorescence of the office place is enough to stifle your positive mood. In many offices, you can bring your own lamp(s) which makes a huge difference in your work space vibe.



Sunday Finds for Mother’s Day (next week!)

We delayed our Friday Finds to “Sunday Finds” in honor of Mother’s Day that is coming up in 7 days! We found some great deals and gifts that you can purchase for your Mother. It’s truly hard for Leaf1 to post this blog without being a little emotional because she lost her Mother in 2004. Regardless, all Mothers should be honored and recognized next week, and everyday. XOXO

Wearing Hot Pink Clothes to Work?!

Sometimes, you just need to wear pink to work. While bright colors is not exactly “faux pas,” it can be difficult to wear a head to toe, hot pink/fuschia look to work.

A pop of color is safe, and a good way to work a little Spring or Summer into your wardrobe. This top was a great find! You can purchase one similar at Express or at Old Navy, and Leaf2 wears it all the time with black or gray (or green), and bright pink lips. It may be wrong, but just that pop of pink adds a great deal of confidence throughout the day.


This pink dress from StyleWe takes pink confidence to the next level! This dress is great for work because the material is great quality, the dress has solid structure through the shoulders and midsection, but isn’t too fitted. The unique neckline isn’t too revealing for work, and the dress is overall super comfortable. It is important to downplay your accessories for a formal work setting in a dress this powerful, but that makes it all the easier to throw on at the last minute.
