Home Office Ideas & Colourful Stationery

When my Aussie mate and Stylist fellow Mr. Jason Grant dropped me a line about his new super colourful stationery line that he designed and styled for Officeworks, I couldn’t wait to get my blogging paws all over it! Isn’t it fun? I’ve been a stationery addict for many years and seem unable to stop buying notebooks despite the ever-increasing pile of them on my desk at home. This collection is split out into colours and makes it easy to opt for a colour coordinated look, or mix and match across the hues. Which office spaces and stationery colours are you drawn to? I love the red and grey magazine files, but the kitchen-cum-work table is so adorable, right?! If you enjoyed this, be sure to check out this tour of Jason’s home!

Great post. I love being inspired by organised offices. I love stationery and I have been known to go on lunchtime excursions to officeworks on many occasions to look for new stationery.

I think the key to a great office is lots of storage. Going to check out Jason's home tour now…

Agree…the blues really make a mark in any room! Love the inspirations!

I really wish my work station would be something different! But I just have to be happy with what I presently have.

Love this stuff but would be even happier if Jason could tell me the font he has used so that my labels can look as cool as his!!!

Oh these are gorgeous AND in Aus! Love all of the pretty colours and beautiful designs. Sounds like you had a fun time in Munich Will! xx

So cool! I love the metal stool, jar of rubber bands, and wooden bird. The sage color is my favorite!

The tall purple flower pom pom things (I can't tell if they are real) are cool :) They soften up the space… I love colour against a white background and always will!

I like the red files and the yellow chairs! They are both so striking! Love these work spaces, so simple yet so beautiful.

I love the yellow chair!

I share half an office with my husband so it's always disorganised (my excuse!), but I'm sure I could get a colourful chair in there. Great post.

I presently have similar boxes and magazine files in striped black and white from Ikea. I think his sage ones would add a touch of colour and look really good with my black and white.

Achh! I wish my office was *half* that organized! And the styling here is so good– i really love the pops of Grecian blue here and there.

I love this! I'm a stationary addict as well… My main office issue is my printer. It is massive and ugly. Any ideas?

yes, yes me too! I've been a stationery addict since my elementary | hello kitty days and they add so much fun & pop in any space!

@Beauty Follower, Cupcake Couture, Two Hippos, Justina – I agree, Jason has used colour so well here.

@Julia – A yellow chair is always needed! Thanks for your lovely comment. ;)

@Anna – Hope you're office is looking tip top now! :)

@Jane – So lovely to hear from you! Hope you are well. xx

@Louly – Liking your mix and match idea, thanks for sharing it with us!

@Marianne – Oh, so is mine! I hide mine on a shelf under my desk, but how about concealing yours with an old apple crate that you can take off when you need to print?

@Maureen – Hurrah! Another stationery addict! :)

So lovely spaces! If all offices looked like that! And I am very much keen on beautiful stationary, too! Love the blue files with a bird net to them! :)
