Cheer up at the office by Jessica Hodges
So I don’t want to make you that cheery, because that’s just annoying. But it’s been rainy in NY for the past week or so and the forecast says at least a couple more days of rain and I definitely need a boost! I’m a strong advocate for really happy, bright colors – which is usually apparent in my color overloaded outfits and a main topic of debate when creating banners and designing the site in the marketing department…anyways, it’s Thursday, and here are some bright colored items to cheer up your space!
Designed by Yegor Zhgun, this is a USB Hub you won’t want to hide under your desk.
The Luxeed Keyboard
As long as it doesn’t give you a headache, it will cheer you up! No more boring Dell Keyboard. You can choose the way different sections and keys light up!
Write everything with Prismacolor Pencils
I’ll admit it, I’ve definitely resorted to colored pencils when I can’t find a pencil or pen anywhere. You can too! Yeah it might get old pretty quick but it would be fun to write reminders or write on your calendar with colored pencils. You can even draw a little smiley face or sunshine next to it.
Rainbow Colored Push Pins
These are essential for creating this on your cubicle wall:
Maybe you’ll need more colors..
The Happy Hours Rainbow Wall Clock
A more subtle, classy, and modern way to cheer up your space. It has a nice sleek silver frame to dim down the rainbowness. (and it’s from target so it’s pretty cheap.) But think about how happy it will make you feel when the little hand reaches turquoise or blue.
Prism Steno Pads
Replace that boring legal pad you always take notes in with the one of these bright options.
The Smile Cup
Everyone needs one of these. Perfect for breakfast or that afternoon snack. Ideally, it would have milk in the cup and some warm cookies from Au Bon Pain on the plate. I’m semi-addicted to their bag of little cookies.
Bring Your Lunch in Rainbow Craft Bags
When I was younger we always drew on our lunch bags and now you can do the same (but with a more exciting background color than paper bag brown.)
Now the ultimate cheering up item. Rainbow Jello.
Now I don’t personally recommend using all of these items at once. Color overload is bound to happen if you decide to swap out every black or gray thing on your desk with something that is bright pink or red or orange. Sometimes you just need one thing like a nice desktop background for your computer. Currently mine is this:
Lake Tahoe sounds pretty good right now right?I hope you have a cheery day!
