Our editors open up their office doors (or, in some cases, cubicles) to share bright ideas that can transform your work space from standard-issue to pretty and unique.


Thinking Outside the Box

Senior home editor Rebecca Robertson likes to fill her station with a collage of inspiring objects like ribbon bits, magazine tears, invitations, vintage candle holders, a market bag from Berlin, and old Henri Bendel hatboxes filled with fabric swatches.

Physical Therapy

Elizabeth Graves, editorial director of beauty, health, and fitness, needs her office to be physically comfortable: "Raising my monitor so I'm looking straight at the screen's center keeps my neck from craning, and elevating my feet on a stool under my desk takes pressure off my lower back."

Coloring Books

Katie Hatch, fashion editor, arranges her reference books by color. "I used to shelve them all by subject," she says, "but I have a visual memory, so it's easier for me to access a book I need by the way it looks than by what it's about."

Mess About

There's a method to the messiness on senior editor Valerie Rain's desk. "I forget what I don't see," she explains. Instead of hiding work materials in boxes or drawers, she opts for transparent hanging file organizers and shelves, creating more surface space for the other to-do's that need tracking.

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!
