My business partner and I moved our team and our business into an office of our own just before 2015 kicked in. It has been an excited time for us and our firm as we grow in size and space. Over the holidays, my partner, my partner’s husband, and our associate did a beautiful job decking the office out in our company colours and style. After some inspiration stemming from Pinterest and a few trips back and forth to IKEA and other home and office decor stores, our space came to life. Since then, I have thought – how can I bring my desk to life? The answer is Poppin!
Poppin is a company that creates slick, vibrant office supplies, in which they term as “workstyle products.” This brand designs work tools that are beautiful to look at and provide items that help to dress up basic, boring or sterile workspaces. They are all about the idea of working happy and being surrounded by colour can truly contribute to your mood and how to approach your work.
As many of you may have noticed in my previous posts, I am a HUGE fan of colour. My closet looks like a rainbow, I wear the brightest shades on my nails, and I enjoy incorporating different colours and colour patterns into decor ideas – from a single throw pillow to floral arrangements to a shade of paint.
When I first discovered Poppin in Chapters/Indigo, right away I purchased one of their soft cover notebooks. As someone who takes a lot of notes and asks a lot of questions, I needed something to write in and something that was small enough to fit in the majority of my purses and computer bag. I bought the Poppin soft cover notebook in the medium size, in one of my favourite colours – bright blue (or referred to as Pool Blue by Poppin):
Here are some other notable items created from Poppin to add colour and happiness to your work space, such as portable filing cabinets, mouse pads, multi-purpose desk organizers, pens, and vibrant folders:
Aside from my trusty soft cover Poppin notebook, I am currently in a great debate about which route to go – select one uniform colour and outfit my desk with Poppin products in that colour OR go for the rainbow concept. Such hard decisions. As I continue to debate (and eventually come to a decision), I will continue to enjoy my notebook and keep you posted on my final answer. Until then, I recommend Poppin!
