It’s shown in just about every glamour shot of an office or desk but I’m not sure I ever pointed out where you could find the iconic Fliqlo screensaver. Its available for Macs (up to Mountain Lion) and for Windows and it’s free.
Use colored brads to decorate a white pumpkin for a confetti look or use gold brass brads or thumbtacks to decorate a classic orange pumpkin. The supply closet will never know what hit it.

Interior design team and brothers Doug and Gene Meyer shared images on their blog of their desks and the massive collage walls of inspiration in their Miami studio. They actual employ a collage technique in a lot of the spaces they design for clients. Its a feast for the eyes and a great way to brighten the space over your desk if you don’t have a window view.
PS: I love the steel tables (make your own at Ikea or buy a colorful metal desk at CB2) on wheels with the green upholstered Eames aluminum side group chairs and citrus yellow filing cabinets (the Bisley drawers or the CB2 TPS file cabinet are similar). What would you cover the walls with?

Thanks to the great folks on App.net (you can find me @Ana), I found a great assortment of wallpapers for iPhone and iPad (and any other mobile device I’m sure) by an artist named Simon C Page.
Go download them now and make your day.
What my iPad Mini looks like now.

The new Palomino Blackwing Pearl Review is coming! Check out these great photos from Pencil Revolution while you wait.
And finally, I hope you will all take a moment to read and comment on 13-year-old Kayte’s post on how she became a pen addict. Its inspiring to see her enthusiasm and passion. Let’s support her!
I always get tickled by the goofy stuff designers do, myself included, like proudly showing their affinity for a particular color, right down to its Pantone designated number. So, yeah to Pantone for offering this lovely array of “chips” available as computer desktop wallpapers. I, of course, chose PMS 382C… but really, who is surprised by that?
I never know where I’m going to find some little bit of office-y inspiration. Today, it came – from all places – the children’s home decor shop, Land of Nod in the form of metal paper-clip-shaped hooks. What a perfect place to hang up your laptop tote or your Mr. Roger’s cardigan — doesn’t everyone have one of those?
(Available in red, pink, silver and yellow for $8.95 each from Land of Nod)
