Keeping your desk organized and stylish at the same time can be a difficult task to achieve.

It's easy to get lost under stacks of paper and piles of pens, along with all of your other desk accessories. Whether you work from home or in an office, filling your desk with decorations and items you love can make a big difference.

From little quirky trinkets and pops of pretty, to a bit of greenery, spruce up your space with these seven ideas for decorating the chicest desk ever from the editors of Porch.com!

1. Mix, match & layer

Let the color scheme of your decor define your desk. Whether you like gold and glam, black and white or bright and bold, mix and match your favorite colors to create a space that represents you. If you have a smaller desk, layer your decor and accessories to save space.
