Martha Stewart Home Office

Martha Stewart Home Office

Beautify and Organize At Your Fingertips

Martha Stewart Home OfficeEveryone could use a little more organization in life, not to mention de-cluttering home and office space in between life’s busy seasons.  There is no reason to wait until January for your New Year’s resolution to start, when Martha Stewart Home Office brings organization to your fingertips.  We women know that everything Martha touches turns to gold as her creativity and finesse from cooking and designing to organizing and cleaning makes our lives easier and more enjoyable.  With the fabulous recent Martha Stewart Home Office line, you can easily turn your home and office into a tranquil personal space with everything in its proper place.  Martha’s inspiration behind the line came from her desire to create an office and home office product line because there was nothing on the market that addressed organization needs from both an aesthetic and functionality perspective. 

Martha Stewart Home OfficeExcited and pleased as we are to feature Martha Stewart Home Office, we also had the pleasure of interviewing VP Design Director, Megen Lee.  She majored in Apparel Design at Rhode Island School of Design but had an intense interest in industrial design and jewelry making.  Prior to working with Martha Stewart as an editor in the holiday crafts department in 1998, she started out in the fashion industry designing a menswear collection.  Megen has always been a maker and doodler.  While she does not consider herself an artist, she is a bit of a perfectionist and loves making anything perfectly or as perfect as she can.  Her creative interests range from origami, to learning to work on her scooter, to designing apparel and creating product ideas for Martha Stewart Living magazine.

Martha Stewart Home OfficeThe style of Martha Stewart Home Office is a classic look with a modern flair and functionality.  The collection works in both traditional and modern homes, which is what makes it so appealing to most women.  The strongest testament to the product line is that Martha herself personally uses these products at home.  Martha would not sell a home office line that she does not believe in or use herself.  Martha Stewart Home OfficeFor families with busy schedules, Martha Stewart Home Office has a great selection of dry erase boards and decals such as their Dry Erase Weekly Planner that can go on the fridge or wall for visibility.  Reusable by simply wiping clean, this is great for planning meals, events or time management.  The brand also has Dry Erase Decals with different shapes and borders so that you can place them on walls, mirrors, and handy areas to jot reminders or notes.  Or you could go the traditional corkboard route that has been upgraded to the Flourish Border Message Board, a modern corkboard with a feminine shape and accented with a colored border.  Ideal for home office or high traffic areas to keep notes, invitations, flyers and photos pinned in sight. 

Martha Stewart Home Office is unique from other home organization brands because they created a product line specifically with the home in mind.  Megen says, “We started with the functionality of the office and added needs from the home – such as how to utilize smaller spaces and how to organize items around the house. We also brought a classic home-friendly aesthetic that works beautifully with any décor.”  Their line offers a wide range of products, but Megen’s personal favorite are the ones she uses the most.  She uses the Wall Manager System as well as the Stack and Fit System because they are all functional, modular, and address all her needs in the office as well as at home.  She adds, “We also wanted to bring to life some of the great editorial ideas we have created in the magazine.”  As for coming up with ideas for designs, the team works very closely with Martha to define the aesthetic and identify the needs, and uses that input to create a product assortment list.  The team then draws inspiration from their editorial content related to those areas and search the marketplace to understand what needs are not currently addressed.  They pull all these strands together to create and design their collection.  

Martha Stewart Home OfficePaperwork clutter is one of the hardest to manage, but Martha Stewart Home Office offers such a feminine and practical selection of binders and filing options that you will actually get excited about organizing.  While most binders are large and bulky, this collection also offers Small Binders like the soft blue one featured here, complete with small write on dividers and clear page protectors with one, two or four pockets to safely store items with clear visibility.  Martha Stewart Home OfficeThe pockets in various sizes are perfect for storing receipts, gift cards, coupons or small paperwork as the clear protectors allow you to view and find everything easily.  For filing, the line has a gorgeous and flattering selection of accordion folders in the same lovely Tiffany blue.  Our favorite is the Shagreen Accordion File that has a pretty pebbled exterior for a classy touch while the inside tabs store important papers.  We also like the Frosted Poly Accordion File as they expand easily while looking chic with the colors and designs of white and blue.

We absolutely adore their vast variety of labels, bands and tags as they come in different shapes, materials, and finishes.  These labels can be used for anything, from labeling pickling mason jars and food containers to toy and clothing bins and books.  We especially Martha Stewart Home Officelike the Adhesive Metal Bookplate Silver because it adds a rustic vintage appeal to boxes and has a clean finish.  The Brown Kraft Labels compliment mason jars and food packaging perfectly as it has a down home country feel to its simple brown paper background and classic shapes.  A unique spin on labels are the Chalkboard Labels, which are reusable with dry chalk, making it ideal for storing clothes and toys when labels need to be changed up.  Martha Stewart Home Office also offers a fabulous selection of premium journals in different sizes, colors and finishes (our favorite is the shagreen finish).  Perfect for jotting down personal notes or keeping a daily journal, you can easily find one in the right size and design to suit your taste. 

Martha Stewart Home OfficeNo matter how much you organize, desk space always seems scarce.  Either needing more to room to store things or how to organize efficiently in the most aesthetically pleasing manner, that is the challenge.  The two best ways to split up desk organization is wall organization and desktop surface organization.  With the wall, it can clear up a lot of desk space as the possibilities are endless.  We especially like Martha’s Two Tier Shagreen Paper Pocket as the lovely shagreen textured material gives a classic, refined look along with the clean, crisp look of the silver grommets.  The double tier allows you to room to store papers on different levels.  For the inside of desk or cupboard doors, the Clear Pockets are great because they adhere well and allow you to easily view its interior contents at a glance. 

Martha Stewart Home OfficeFor surface organization, making your desk “look pretty” is half the battle.  This is one of our favorite areas to makeover because there are so many options and styles to make “your own.”  Organize loose papers with Martha’s stunning Vertical Filing Folders and slip them inside a lovely blue Magazine File (with silver bookplate of course).  You can even throw in your favorite magazine issues for easy access while keeping your desk clutter free.  For larger items, Martha Stewart Home Officeyou might want a Document Storage Box, which is available in blue and white in various sizes and can be accented with a bookplate or creative label.  Martha Stewart Home Office has a creative and easy way for anyone to customize their home office into what works for them.  Pick and choose to mix and match any of the organizers, stackable inboxes (with or without drawers) and holders.  We especially love the Inbox with Drawer and the Stackable Inbox together because it creates a seamless yet attractive desktop drawer system for notepads, supplies, and more.  You can have a single level or create a double level to store more items and arrange them as you like.  Martha Stewart Home Office gives you flexibility, creativity and gorgeous products! 

Martha Stewart Home OfficeMartha Stewart Home Office keeps in line with trends and functionality as they introduce new products throughout the year.  Martha Stewart Home Office products are available exclusively at Staples and Staples.com in the United States, Canada and United Kingdom.  In Australia, the line is available at Officeworks.  Customers will be pleased to know that Martha Stewart Home Office offers many discounts and coupons throughout the year.  Simply access these offers by viewing Staples store circulars or checking the Facebook pages for Martha Stewart and Avery.  In closing, Megen shares, “We are very happy with how the product line turned out and are continuing to think about how to create new solutions.  One of the most satisfying parts of my job is knowing that the products we create are making a positive difference in our customers’ lives.”
