Beautifully Organized: Lists

I’m one who loves lists (and have a feeling many of you do as well!) so today I want to share with you my round-up of 10 stylish list pads. Whether it’s a to-do list, shopping list, or simply a list of things to remember, it’s nice to organize and mind dump everything onto paper, especially onto pretty paper like this:

1-the long list, 2- to-do adhesive notes, 3- ‘get it done’ notepad, 4- orange zig zag photo pad, 5- striped notepad, 6- oxford pad, 7- peacock pad, 8- happy notes, 9- recycled paper market list , 10-market shopping pad

Tell me, do you love lists? Do you have a favorite list pad for jotting them all down?

Toast Rack as Mail Organizer

Love the idea of using a vintage toast rack as a way to beautifully organize mail or neatly hold stationary:

Look for vintage racks on Etsy, eBay and your local flea market.

Secretary Desks

Secretary desks are so great for adding some function to a little corner.  They provide plenty of concealed storage and the hinged desktop surface can be folded up when not in use.

Concealed Office Storage

Like the idea of concealing office storage (and injecting some color into the space!) with a beautiful curtain:

Matching Pencils

Love the way a grouping of matching pencils in a single color looks.  They make a stylish and functional desk accessory. White ones seem to look particularly chic:

Bonus points if they’re personalized :)

I found a few on Etsy: here and here

Had the pleasure of stopping by the lovely shop Sugar Paper in Brentwood late last week after visiting the House of Windsor with my pal Irene, and spotted these pretty little lists made of 100% recycled paper. Perfect for staying stylishly organized:

Stylish Binders

I use 3-ring binders for storing and organizing everything from project files and business receipts, to magazine tearsheets and recipies. I currently have basic white inexpensive ones in a variety of sizes, which I keep lined up in an office cabinet. For binders I use frequently, I’m thinking it’d be nice to upgrade to something that’s stylish enough to leave out on an open shelf for easy access. Russell + hazel binders in a fun color {as seen below} would do nicely.
