Creating an Inspiring Work Space

  • Desks can be dull, drab places to work. But, you can easily change that and make your space inviting and fun. We partnered with Kate Arends of Wit & Delight to create three stunning looks that bring cubicles from boring to beautiful. This page includes tips on how to decorate and organize your cubicle space using Scotch® Brand Products.

    Meet Kate

    Kate Arends, brand strategist and creative force behind Wit & Delight, has been in the business of design and style since 2009. Kate was thrilled to partner with Scotch™ Brand to create tips and tricks to personalize any office space. Early in her career, Kate was very familiar with a corporate cubicle environment and has plenty of ideas on how to personalize your office space while still balancing form and function.

The Minimal Modern

  • You can add a sense of style to just about any cubicle, and you can use almost anything for inspiration. For this look, Wit & Delight drew inspiration from the plain blue-gray and white walls, along with the colors of items on the desk — a rustic orange plant pot, light brown headphones, gold paperclips, yellow No. 2 pencils and even a tangerine from the day’s lunch. Using Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape, she added blue prints and bold metallic colors for a classic look with a bit of fun and flair. Check out the tips below to bring style and organization to your own workspace.

Modernizing Your Cubicle

5 Tips for Modernizing Your Cubicle

  • 1. Use Scotch® Wall-Safe Tape to hang important reminders, lists or schedules to your wall. This tape removes easily and won’t hurt your wall, so you can swap out documents as often as needed.

    2. Color coordinate binders with Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape. Choose from a beautiful and always changing selection of glitter, metallic and print designs.

    3. Add a pop of color or pattern to your desk plants by adding Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape to a planter.

  • 4. Wrap cords with Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape to help you tell them apart and stay organized. Add a bit of the same tape to your device’s corresponding input or output, so you can easily spot which cord goes where.

    5. Wrap pencils in Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape to coordinate with colors on or around your desk.

Professional in Pink

  • By adding some earth-tone colors, textures and crafted objects, Wit & Delight gave this blank gray cubicle a sophisticated and contemporary feel. She brought in deep green cactus plants, woven fabrics and decorative boxes and planters with pink, brown and copper color themes. Black and white objects are mixed in for a subtle, yet powerful contrast to the neutral, earthy tones. The tips below give simple ways to add style and color to your desk.

The Boho Professional

  • You can be practical and modern, and still work in a space that boldly displays your personal sense of style. To balance these two ideals, Wit & Delight created a shipping station and used wall space for a weekly calendar, while incorporating bold motif fabrics with deep brown and red-orange tones throughout. Wood accents, feathers, weavings and plants gives the space a bohemian chic feel. Try out tips below to bring this fresh look to your workspace.
