INSPIRATION NATION // 16 TRENDY ESSENTIALS FOR THE #GIRLBOSS!

You see them spanning your newsfeed in Instagram, their sassy lifestyle bits cropping up on Pinterest and their fun Snapchat stories and you're pretty much one yourself (or are on the road to being one) but girlbosses are now gaining recognition and they are here to stay. That being said, no such charming lady can function flawlessly at life without having her own manwomancave which is where I've come to help.
Whatever your style may be, you'll fall in love with at least one of these beautiful essentials every lady needs in her private comfy nook. My style has to do all with balance, having loud, make-you-look-twice pieces coupled with understated beauties, modern in vogue pieces paired with a little vintage decor and finally pieces that invoke relaxation therapy while others that get you all upbeat. Have a look!

PS: None of the mentioned products are sponsored whatsoever. Let's get that straight first. :) Okay, now have a look.

16 trendy essentials for the #girlboss! #inspiration #office #decor #chic #girlboss
1.FABULOUS SEATING FOR YOUR GIRLGANG: 
Remember I said we're trying to be a modern stylista here with luxurious vintage pieces here and there? I think on the whole counter stools are a better bet than a couch because they'll keep your work mode going at the table with the girls. I found these charming vintage wrought iron ones (which come as a set of four <3) from Chairish with a quirky palm print.

2.UPLIFTING SUCCULENTS/FRESH FLOWERS:
Okay fresh flowers/planters are just a given. You simply cannot have a haven without them. I'm reaching out to succulents like these a lot more than flowers these days but it's up to you. They add a vibrant color pop as well. Remember those macrame planters that are bombing pinterest? Time to put some DIY skills to test.

3.A FAB WOVEN RUG:
Rugs = comfort after an exhausting day. If you don't have time for a pedicure, you make sure at least your rug pampers you. This feminine hemp-woven Indian rug from Society Social looks solidly gorgeous and does the job too. (And it's Fair Trade)

4.AN ENGAGING COFFEE TABLE BOOK
Coffee table books can spark a lot of inspiration if chosen right. They're even the perfect companions for someone who visits your den while you prep some things up for them all the while showing your amazing style. Anna Spiro's Absolutely Beautful Things is the coffee table book which just screams to be flipped through.

5.A CLASSY OFFICE TABLE
You'll never feel long drawn out working hours if you have an office table you absolutely adore. If you need more space to pack in stationery make sure you have some storage but this gold and marble table from cb2 doesn't weigh down valuable room space and feels luxe. (or get an identical one custom built, simple enough to do)

6.CHIC DESK ACCESSORIES
Kate Spade desk accessories have suddenly seemed to gone too mainstream in decor roudups and Instagrammer favorites which is why I chose the same gold flair with a little more oomph. This stylish file rack is part of a whole range from Anthropologie and yep, the others look just as divine.

7.GORGEOUS CATCH-ALL ACCESSORIES
Have one huge tray to showcase your collectibles or multiple mini ones like these to store different pieces, but you absolutely need to have a go-to knickknacks storage space.

8.A STYLISH TABLET/PHONE CASE
More than anything, this is a huge expression of who you are so make sure you're sending the right message. Whether you are an understated elegance kind of girl or a bold and colorful lass or maybe even both, Society6 has a darn huge collection of all kinds of gorgeous gadget cases. I just adore this one.

9.AN ECLECTIC ENSEMBLE OF PILLOWS
Ah pillows, prop them against your back or tastefully arrange some throw pillows on the floor for extra seating, but; don't play safe. This is one territory where you should definitely experiment, so mix and match away! I've combined some from Studio McGee here and a tasseled pillow from Target. As you can tell by now, I'm absolutely digging palm prints. (Hey- it's summer!)

10.THE ULTIMATE  GIRLBOSS MUG
Because your morning cup of addicting coffee brew should also double up as your inspiration for the day. Some searching around and I came across these really pretty girlboss mugs

11.THE FUN ACCENT WALL
O.M.Goodness. How can I not have known about these guys before? Since we are keeping everything else patterned/colorful, I decided to go with this simpler cheeky, dotty wallpaper but you could paint the accent wall a coordinating solid color (cue: Pantone's colors of the year are superb) or choose one from this gallery. Instant room pick-me-up!

12.EMPOWERING ART PRINTS
Society6 again. If you are not checking out their or even Minted's collection of Art prints you are honestly missing out on bouts of energy boosts! Check out the ones featured in my round-up here, here, here & here.

13.PRETTY MIRRORED STORAGE
You can keep everything else pretty affordable but splurging on one of these babes will magically turn the entire room expensive looking. I found this mirrored storage to be great for the price and it is 60% off. (or go check out some Youtube tutorials and convert an existing Ikea dresser to a mirrored spectacle)

14.ELEGANT PENDANT LAMP(S)
Okay, so the site does not feature a price tag for these pendant lamps and you need to send an enquiry for these to the designer, BUT they were just so gorgeous I couldn't resist. Metallics always combine beautifully with everything so if you're undecided on what kind of lighting to go for, I suggest golds or coppers for finishes.

15.THE CUTE TO-DO LIST
Rifle paper co. had to make it to "this list". They make some of the cutest and also well-known stationery around so to-do lists or agendas, whatever your pick, gives you the sublime satisfaction of ticking things off at the end of the day and give yourself a pat on the back.

16.A WHIMSICAL MIRROR
Because at the end of the day or whenever you head out, you should look at  yourself and have a little you got it girl pep talk with your reflection. Definite essential for me. ;) How beautiful is this mirror from Lulu & Georgia?
