Styling My Home Office With Gold Desk Accessories

I’ve got a confession to make. I *may* be moving on from copper. My little home office is a shrine to black, white and copper. Have a peek on my post about working from home and you’ll see! Recently, I’ve been adding a smattering of gold desk accessories, partly thanks to a collaboration with luxury living store Rooi.

Gold Paddywax candle, Kate Spade NY tape dispenser and stapler from Rooi. Gold scissors and sharpener from Papersmiths, flamingo mug from Cafe of Curiosities.

I am keeping my copper things too, of course, just adding in a new metallic shade.

My gold obsession started with my gorgeous Happiness Planner at the beginning of the year. I chose the gold and pink version, and it comes with a gold pen. I picked up the Hay scissors and double pencil sharpener at Papersmiths in BOXPARK Shorditch, London.White desk with Gold Desk Accessories
Next came the gold paperclips and the giant safety pin, which is from one of my favourite independent shops, Southwood Stores. I’m using it to hold a few of my washi tapes at the moment, and it hangs nicely on my IKEA peg board.

The real excitement happened when these gorgeous gold desk accessories from Kate Spade New York arrived.Kate Spade Gold Desk Accessories

I’d been eyeing up this beautiful perspex and gold stapler (£23.95) and the matching tape dispenser (£19.95) from iconic NY brand Kate Spade for ages, but it seemed like a bit of an extravagence. Rooi asked me to review some products*. And although Rooi have loads of beautiful products I needed (like new pillows, bedding, cushions, kitchenware, notebooks etc. etc. etc.) I just kept coming back to these beauties. Can you blame me? Even the pink boxes are beautiful!

They have quirky slogans engraved into the gold: the tape says ‘MAKE IT STICK’ and the stapler says ‘HOLD IT TOGETHER’. They are such good quality and looks super luxe.

I think they go well with the typographical prints I have on my peg board.My desk with pink and gold desk accessories

The stapler and tape dispenser add glamour to my desk, and tie the gold and pink look together, with the pink washi tape I added to the dispenser.

Rooi also sent me the lush little Paddywax Peony and Clover Soywax Scented Candle, in a gold tin (£4.95)*. It smells absolutely gorgeous, and that’s without even lighting it. I am going to stock up on some more of these as they make such great little gifts. Paddywax is an American company who specialise in hand-poured, soy wax blended, fragranced candles. This little candle is great for travel, as it’s lightweight, and protected in the gold tin.

Ryan is excited that we finally have a stapler, so it’s a win/win for us. I do have to make sure Ava doesn’t pinch them though, as she has inherited my love of stationery!

So now I am all set up to brainstorm in my brown and gold notebook from HEMA (4 for £2.50), with a cuppa from my Cafe of Curiosities monochome and gold flamingo mug (£12). I wonder what you’ll choose? Do tell me in the comments, I’d love to know!
