Like most of you, the WY? team spend a fair amount of time in the office so it’s important that our workspace inspires us. Here are a few of our favourite tips and tricks from our office to yours that will ensure creativity and productivity are at optimum levels all the time.

1. Clear the clutter DAILY.
Clean desk, clear mind! Don’t wait for Springtime to do all of your desktop cleaning. To keep your desk tidy year-round, spend a few minutes at the end of each day tossing or filing old papers and putting loose objects where they belong.

WY? storage find: A gorgeous lucite tray from Tilly Maison to store all of your loose papers . Available in a variety of styles and sizes, the leopard is by far our fav!

2. Out of sight, out of mind.

Nothing will de-beautify your workspace like a tangle of cords. To help keep loose cords at bay, our interior designer Henry Francis created custom desks with his cabinet maker that include drill holes for computer and phone cords which are then contained in hidden compartments that run along the back of the desk.

3. No Space is too small for a Garden.

We are obsessed with the newest addition to the WY? office – our super cool terrariums from Miniscapes. What’s even cooler is that if these green thumbs let you down, Miniscapes offer a leasing arrangement to clients where you can swap your terrariums monthly to keep your space looking fresh all the time! 

4. Noteworthy

Call us old-fashioned, but we’re nothing without our notepads. If you’re anything like us and create numerous to-do lists daily with good old pens and paper, be sure to invest in chic post-it notes and other pretty paper goods. WY? recommend Gregory Costaras at Gorilla Printing to print personalised post-its – Always printed to WY? high standards!
