First, balance.

If you're the organized type, you've already compartmentalized your space well. The next step is to create a sense of balance between the left and right sides of your desk, similar to the way you'd want nightstands on either side of your bed to compliment each other. Here, both desktop items and the art on the wall behind have symmetry. One side does not overpower the other, creating zen (and hopefully productivity!) at the desk.

We love how this desk space clearly creates a white canvas for items with a little more color, with red being the real accent.

Whatever helps you focus!
