Enrich the mood of your workspace by adding an unexpected sculptural detail like a glamorous paperweight or a pair of bold bookends. Luxurious cubicles need to have a little more than just the bare essentials.
Fresh plants breathe life into your workspace. Try keeping a low-maintenance plant on your desk like a succulent or orchid. Or, treat yourself to a fresh bouquet of flowers. Your locals farmers market or Trader Joe's has plenty of low-cost options that will brighten your workspace.
Cleanliness is never overrated. Make sure to toss all of your unwanted paper and knick-knacks. You want to have a clutter-free workspace in order to maintain productivity and spark creativity. Have a case for your business cards, a tray for your little things, and drawer organizers for your less attractive supplies.

Candles convey an elevated sense of style, especially when packaged in sleek cases. Spoil yourself with a large or small version of your favorite candle and light it whenever you need a pick-me-up at the office. Candles are excellent props for glam desk Instagrams as well.
