12 Desk Knickknacks That Won’t Annoy Your Boss
Your desk is practically your second home (a home that pays you). So why not make it cozy and fun?
The way your workspace is decorated can reveal a lot about your personality. Whether you have family photos or little knickknacks from a vacation on display, there’s plenty to decode based on trinkets you choose. Just remember to keep it semi-toned down, so your co-workers don’t get a headache every time they glance over. My desk, for instance, has a bit of everything, including a repurposed Diptyque candle jar that's now housing my succulents and a framed calligraphy print that reads “Woof,” which perfectly captures my sarcastic and sassy humor (and is on par with my overarching design aesthetic, which is v. important, amirite?)
