New Office Art : I heart BC

I wanted some artwork for my little corner desk. I only needed a small little piece so I thought I would check out some of the great little prints on ETSY!
Since it's 'my' desk I wanted something a little bit girly, but still appropriate for the main floor of our house. I found this 5x7 for $10. It's from Poppy and Pinecone, and I love it!
It combines three things I love, PINK, watercolors and British Columbia!!
 A far away shot for perspective:
I'm loving the way my little corner of the house is shaping up, I still need to find a cuter (maybe a pattern with some PINK in it) File Box, and  a couple of desktop accessories would be great too.

You might have notice that we added an extra floating shelf to on the top, I figured it's totally unused space, so we might as well add an extra shelf and store seldom used office supplies up there. Sheet protectors and binder dividers don't get used often so that's the perfect spot to store them. As well as catalogs and reference magazines.
 I hope you're liking our little office corner as much as I am. I'm thrilled at the difference one shelf and a $10 print can make!!

 Anyone else ordered something they love off etsy lately??

  4. That's a lovely little print.

    I am a big fan of BookFiend on Etsy (http://www.etsy.com/shop/BookFiend) It's all literary inspired. I got the most fantastic mousepad with one of my favourite Jane Austen quotes and I also have a canvas tote that says "I like big books and I cannot lie." She's great for customization - my mousepad colour was custom for me.

  14. you should try recovering your file box yourself with fabric or paper. It pretty easy, especially fabric since it's easier to find fabric large enough to cover.

    1. That's a great idea!!! I might just try that!!! I was thinking scrapbook paper but I can't find it larger then 12", but maybe wrapping paper?? Or Fabric I hadn't thought of that!!
      Thanks!!
      I'll keep you posted!

    2. it's super easy with fabric if you use the spray adhesive. just enjoy stickiness to keep it staying but not too much so you can reposition it if necessary. i recovered my bookshelves after three moves they had tons of eletrical outlet holes with fabric and i luv it!

  20. Hi Ashli, I love your office space. I run a daycare out of my home and I'm trying to make a cute office nook for my business. I was looking at counter tops and bar stools. Do you know the height of your top and the height of the stool? I see two sizes online, a 24" and a 30". Which do you prefer? Thanks for your time and your inspiration! -Sara

    1. Hi Sara,
      I prefer 24" stools but it depends on the height of you surface (counter or desk top). If You work surface is 36" or less use a 24" stool, if your surface is 38" or taller I would use a 30" stool.
      In our office corner, our top is 40" from the ground, so we chose a 30" stool!
      Hope that helps!
      Ashli
