Hey, hey! It’s Lee here, from Style Bee, and it’s time to talk desktops!
As someone who spends more than 8 hours a day at a desk (don’t worry I’m doing fun things!), or at least near one, I can attest to every imaginable state of disarray. Coffee cups stacked high, receipts, business cards and miscellaneous papers scattered everywhere, pens mysteriously disappearing, cords and chargers tangled, calendars open and too many items on the ‘to-do’ list to count.
Any of that sound familiar? Well then, it might be time for a little desktop detox. I’ve assembled my current favorite ways to stay organized and keep things in my office under control while still looking fresh and inviting, with these 10 cute desk accessories. Here goes!…
Hi Guys! It’s Erin from Francois et Moi here today with a fun and summery lumbar pillow project you can whip up in just an afternoon!
I love keeping my space feeling fresh and current from season to season with throw pillows–they’re inexpensive and simple to switch out as one season fades into the next, and now that summer is in high gear, I’ve totally got flamingos on the brain (and I know Ashley does, too!)! To me, nothing says summer like a pretty pink flamingo, so I’ve created this super simple DIY no-sew flamingo lumbar pillow to fill the void!
As you know, I’m no stranger to color (that’s almost even laughable to say when it comes to me), so it was a perfect fit to team up with Lowe’s for She Knows by rounding up some of my favorite colorful projects inspired by the new Sherwin-Williams color collection. It was tough to narrow down (I have a new favorite projects every week, it’s like trying to pick a favorite child, you know?), but I’ve narrowed it down to the 8 DIY ways to add color to your home this Summer!

There are two things we do a lot of around the studio: photo shoots and less than organized chaos when it comes to prepping for them. Jared and I have learned to work together pretty well (he tells me I’m annoying him, I tell him he’s annoying me and that I want a flat white with almond milk… etc. etc.), but I have started to be more diligent about putting together cohesive ideas and inspiration boards for shoots and daily to-do lists since bringing on an intern and working with collaborators. Though I’m a digital girl as much as the next, something about secret Pinterest boards just doesn’t always cut it for me, so we made these DIY geometric inspiration boards to bring it back to (hands-on) reality!
The catch here is that I’ve made it a HUGE point to not have any decor items in the studio be too permanent so that we can move things around for shoots. We use the white walls as backdrops, move furniture around to accommodate events and workshops, and even just to be able to spread out supplies for big DIY projects, so the key with our inspiration boards is that it’s easily removable to swap things out with a damage free surface so that we can keep the space a clean slate for whatever we’re working on…
