Office Tour and Organization

October 14, 2017



I have shared my office organization throughout the years. It has definitely gone through seasons of change. Since we are moving soon, I wanted to share one last time. I even included a video tour (below). Over the last several months, I have gone through the drawers and bins and purged a ton. I finally feel like it’s right. My office is very practical, so everything you see has a purpose. If it doesn’t, it goes. Enjoy my office tour and organization.



I am still enjoying the Bedford desk system from Pottery Barn. It’s stylish and timeless. I keep the middle desk free of clutter and use it as my workspace. I use my sewing machine, work on memory keeping, and various other projects.



These two shelves from Ikea work perfectly to store my planner collection. Each bin (from Target) contains a different planner brand. I keep my printer and photo albums on the filing system.



I keep a collection of my two books, The Complete Book of Home Organization & The Complete Book of Clean, on the top shelves.



Here is an example of how my planners are stored in the bins. These are my Hobonichi planner covers.



My computer desk was purchased at Ikea. Its an inexpensive desk that has a lot of space to work. The chair is from TJ Maxx.



My paper sorting system is an important way to keep my office clutter free. When I bring in mail, it’s sorted into one of these bins. Whatever doesn’t, apply goes into the recycling bin. The bins were purchased at Staples.



I keep a desktop calendar in front of my computer. It contains my work tasks. It’s from Erin Condren. I color code the tasks with Le Pens.



Since the desk doesn’t have drawers, I use this Elfa rolling cart (from The Container Store), to store my most used supplies.


The office functions well for me. Everything is set up in categories and flows smoothly.



I keep office supplies in the desk drawers. This drawer holds my budget and mail supplies, including my budget binder, calculator, envelopes, address labels and stamps.



The next drawer holds my office supplies, including glue, tape, a stapler, scissors, etc.



Everyone needs a sticky note drawer.



On the left, you’ll see my launch pad. This is the place I drop my jacket, purse, keys, and sunglasses, when I walk in the door.



The wall color is agreeable gray by Sherwin Williams.



I hope you enjoyed a tour of my home office. If you have any questions, please leave them below. If you have video or blog post recommendations, share them with me.



Enjoy this video tour of my office!

    Hello Tony, you replaced the Pottery Barn desk for the Ikea one. what is the name of the Ikea one? I work from home as well as my husband and we are both in school. Thank you in advance! Love your books and your blog!

    • Toni says:

      I still have my pottery barn desk. Part of the system is in my husbands office. 🙂 The ikea desk is just a long panel with legs. Im not sure of the name though.

    What kind of microphone do you use? I think I’ve seen all of your Office tours over the years. I’ve always enjoyed them, but I like this one the best!

  14. Penny says:

    Lovely office tour! Thank you. Do you talk on your blog somewhere about your paper sorting system? Your binders are adorable. Where did you get them? The tabs? Are you using folders inside them?
    Categories or tabs? That might be really the piece I’m missing in managing the incoming paperwork. Thank you!

    Hi Toni, what a lovely office! Just curious, are you still using the color-coded filing system?

  16. Pamela Riley says:

    Maybe you’ve addressed this before, but I was wondering about the collection of various types of planners. Are they all used? Is it just for research to recommend various products? Not understanding why so many and so many different brands, but I’m salivating!

  17. Shelby says:

    Toni, if I’ve posted this question before, I apologize but I can’t find it. do you still use the color-coded file system? Your style is amazing. Thanks for sharing your house-building journey with us!

  18. EJ says:

    I love the brown ticking on your French doors. What kind of mounting did you use?

  19. Mandie says:

    Love your setup! That is my favorite shade of blue, it is all over my house as well. I was wondering about your iPad on a swivel. I have been looking for a good one, I’m assuming Amazon but can you share a link??

  20. Juliana Wade says:

    Ok those filing cabinets… I see you said Pottery Barn in a comment above but do they fit 12×12 paper by chance?! I am in desperate need to replace my Michaels ones that are just falling apart!

  21. Amanda says:

    Can you post or show how do you hide all your cord and plugs, etc?

  22. Nore says:

    Did you use the same wall color in the whole office?
