This allows you to put up small pictures and your personal paraphernalia which make you feel at home among your own belongings. Choosing your favorite colors to design it also helps a lot.

Give the mouse pad a reason to exist.
- Mason jars as pen-stands: Get hold of a couple of small mason jars, paint them up in your favorite colors (in case of confusion, go for all white or all grey, neither of these ever fail), and use them to store your pens, pencils, rulers, etc. You can even use them to store flowers. It gives your workspace a homely feel.
- Hand-made pencil holders: Just like mason jars, vintage tin cans can give your workspace a great vintage look. Use them to store pencils and pens. Or you can even use them to store small succulents. They look great and add a unique natural look to your workspace.
