The Well Kept Home Office

I was a sales rep in the pharmaceutical industy for over 15 years and I never had a dedicated home office space.  The shotgun seat of my car was the closest thing I ever had to a desk.  When I retired from my paying job, I decided that if I was going to be the CEO of this family I needed a work space.  One of my first posts on The Style Gathering highlighted how I made my pantry work double duty by becoming my home office, but the wi-fi didn’t work great in that space and I honestly gained five pounds working with the Ritz crackers and Cheez-Its in such close proximity.  A few weeks ago I staged a coup d’etat and took over the work-out/computer room and claimed it as my own.  I wanted a clean modern look with creams and gold tones so to freshen things up I painted the walls and desk the same as the existing trim color.  I also rounded up some random lamps and old furniture from the attic.  The lamps were updated with new lampshades from Village Firefly and I added new desk and decor accessories.  A classic oushak rug and an ultra cool gold stamped cowhide layered on top complete my new workspace.

I am digging how clean and modern it looks and to keep everything from my computer screen to my keyboard to my phone clean I keep plenty of Well-Kept towelettes around.  I included these in my “Gameday Must Haves” post a few weeks ago and I have become addicted to having a pack in my purse, in my other purse, in my car and in my desk drawer.  Well-Kept screen cleansing towelettes are a brilliant creation that remove smudges and sticky fingerprints (my children love a device) from device screens, sunglasses, binoculars, you name it.  Once I pull a wipe out of the cute little packaging I am always looking for something else I can clean.  They can be purchased on-line at and in-stores around the country, but I have teamed up with Well-Kept and 19 other bloggers to offer one lucky winner a $200 American Express card, provided by Well-Kept, and a year supply of their handy little wipes.
