Considering the amount of time we spend at our desks, it makes sense to have something pretty and interesting to look at, don't you think? You're lucky if you have a window to gaze out of, but those can be limited in office settings. So, if you're staring at a blank wall all day, how about jazzing it up with art and adding accessories to your work space?

If you have young kids, you know that every day they bring home artistic masterpieces they made at school. Up the artwork goes on the fridge to be proudly displayed until the next day when it gets replaced by a new masterpiece. Of course, you’ll end up tossing some and holding on to others because they’re too precious to get rid of. Instead of keeping the best pieces in folders or on top of a dresser, make the most of your kids' pictures by framing them. Buy some affordable frames like we did here, fitted with a plexi-glass, which makes it safe to hang in kids' rooms and also make it easy to rotate the art. Or, have your favourite pieces professionally framed — you'll be spending more money on the frame than on the art, but for truly special pieces it's worth it! Either way, hang the frames throughout your house so you can enjoy them. Your kids will love you for it!
