office essentials

Here is Maira Kalman's list of Office Essentials.

Maira Kalman's Office Essentials

1. Winsor and Newton paint brushes
2. Daler Rowney sketch books
3. Staedtler eraser and brush
4. Artemide desk lamp
5. Aeron chair
6. Pigma Micron Archival Ink pens
7. No. 2 pencils, any brand

I admire a woman who has her priorities for day-dreaming in order and creating. Gotta love Maira.

I love that our lists are so similar. Nothing like new office supplies on a Monday.

What is on your list for office essentials?

Post-its in lots of lovely colors! I use for my to-do list, use them to mark pages, write notes on them for my staff - couldn't live without them!

windsor and newton watercolor
prisma markers
and a STARBUCKS, hee! I read that article too, it was fun!

I saw this fun article! What's even more refreshing is that Maira Kalman doesn't have internet access, no email etc in her office too!

I cannot live without my daily planner in my "office."

Would a clean desk count?

Soon your new office will be holding new office essentials. I'm so excited for you, I can't imagine what you are feeling. xo

A cup full of good coffee! And lots of pens -- they tend to vanish... must be some pen goblins living near my desk.

Happy Monday. XO
