The Drab world of the Black, white, and beige office

Everyday I go to work, in my office which although I've tried, really does not reflect my personality 
at all.
It seems that office furniture and equipment manufactures are in love with gray, black and beige.

  Over the years, I've tried and tried to update my working world with a little flash and substance, but I inevitably fail, because I'm trying to work with the color palate "they" have given me, Uggh!

Recently at the AW13 London Fashion week, My favorite Designer, Orla Kiely, tacked the blah world of the "clerical office", and I am in love!!!! She started with the standard white wall, and gray/beige world we are all used to, and added some punches of color here and there, along with some fab and groovy retro styling and vintage office products.
And Then... inserted her models, and beautiful bags, clothes, and coats etc into the scene.
 I love the effect the little bit of color has on this drab drab world.

This has inspired me  to tackle my work space using the same philosophy.

Today I found this fun lamp and am adding some small splashes of color here and there with folders, pens, and paper products.  And I'm sure, that colorful spray paint, is going to become my best friend in the near future.

And of course a little Orla never hurts.

 I wonder what color I should paint that black metal shelf?????

It's definitely a work in progress, and  I'll be continuing to work on my drab black, white, and beige working world, and will share it with you as I go. For now, Baby steps.

They are Here, Spring 2013 Flea Market Style

My shipment arrived on Thursday, while I was happily browsing through fields of Junk in Canton Texas. I got a text from a co-worker that my pallet of magazines has arrived, and where would I like them stacked?
This is what a bundle looks like from the distributor

To say I was excited is an understatement, but I had to wait till the next day to see it for myself.  But then, I had no time to browse it's pages as I needed to get busy labeling and posting envelopes for those who had already purchased it.  Needless to say, my weekend is full with this task.  I should have all the existing orders out by Tuesday.  
Last night during a bout of insomnia, I was able to browse it's pages, and as usual, it is fabulous. 
Great job to Ki and her team.

If you have not already ordered it, you can save gas and frustration by having it

 delivered to your door before it even hits the stores, by going here for ordering information.
