If fashion is a way to project your character to the world at large, then your professional space, much like your home, is a more intimate reflection of your personality. So if you’re thinking of sprucing up your office for the upcoming year while showing off your sophisticated taste and discerning eye, then you could do no better than with decorative items that rank high on elegance and versatility.

1. Inject a Sense of Play.
Nothing adds visual interest as effectively as a stylish juxtaposition. Add fun and humour into your personal work place with quirky-chic accents that function beautifully as conversation starters, while showcasing who you are as a person once the clock hits 6pm.
2. Call for Order.
Trinket trays aren’t just a great way to hold your jewellery, they’re also great for keeping your stationery and other knick knacks organised. Plus, with trays that look this good, you won’t have to worry about keeping them hidden in your crowded drawer; you can finally have them out in full display.

3. Fresh Perspective.
It’s amazing what wonders fresh plants or flowers can do to enliven and add warmth to a space. Don’t worry if you’re not a “flora” kind of person. Just a single stalk of a lush, long lasting variety is enough to make a difference (monstera leaves or even an exotic protea as seen here will do nicely). Stick it in a statement vase, and you’re all done.
4. Pen it In.
As the saying goes: It’s all in the details. So don’t settle for just any pen receptacle when there are such refined designs to choose from. While you’re at it, get yourself a couple of gilded pens as well to show just how posh you are.
5. The Old Fashioned Way.
Yes, you could take down your meeting notes on your mobile phone or any other device. But nothing gives as much satisfaction (or pleasure) as putting pen to paper in a beautiful leather bound notebook. Plus, it drips with old school romance and shows character – lots of it.
Here are a couple more ideas to seal the deal.
