Dry Eraser Board—Target

Ubrands Marble Dry Erase Board
$10

“Using natural materials in a space is one of my design signatures. The allure and grace of marble is simply unmatched. With this marble patterned erase board, you can capture the elegance of the stone, even in the little things. After all, both goal-chasing and beauty lie in the details.”

Moleskin planner—Target

Moleskine 2019-2020 Planner
$20

“Busy schedules and appointment-filled days call for structure and endless reminders. These Moleskine planners ensure you’ll never miss a commitment. They’re available in a variety of colors, so you’re certain to find one that tickles your fancy. My interior designer’s brain insists that even my office supplies align with my aesthetic, so teal is my choice. I never mind the ocean-hued wash of color sprinkled about in my space because it only enhances the gold accents in the office. Gorgeous planners laying on desks and tables unintentionally act as décor.”

Pin board—Target

Ubrands White Wood Frame Burlap Bulletin Board
$33

“The versatility of this board is what I love. Create an inspiring vision board, post photos of your family, or add your weekly to-do list. This board can be utilized in so many ways and would be a great addition to any home or office space.”

Gel Pens—Target

Ubrands Gel Pens
$13

“Branding and professional image is important, and that even involves my signature. Gel pens offer me longevity when it comes to writing because they are fade-proof, and that’s what I prefer when I sign contracts and important documents. The colors are bolder, and that’s needed when I want my name and notes to stand out.”

Sticky Notes—Target

Up&Up Sticky Notes
$3

“Multitasking is the name of my game. I tend to transfer ideas from one place to the next, and sticky notes are perfect for that. I love that I can move sticky notes with ease versus tearing paper out and tucking it somewhere I’ll never remember. They’re small, transferable and brightly colored—all things that help me keep great ideas in sight as I go throughout my day.”
