Christmas Wish List {The Office}

Good morning everyone and welcome to a fresh new week... Christmas week at that!! Have you finished all your shopping yet? I finally bought my first one yesterday... for the 4 yr old niece and that was as far as we got before we stopped for lunch and never resumed :-) Still five days left right??
I have been meaning to do up some mood boards for each room of our new house so I know what direction I want to head in when it comes to decorating them... I have such a broad range of tastes that sometimes it's hard to define exactly which way I want to go. So when I thought about putting together a bit of a Christmas Wish List (and believe me 'wish' is the operative word here right now!) I figured this kinda kills two birds with one stone as they can stand in for my inspiration boards pretty much. We'll start with the office today since that is where I spend most of my time!! Now admittedly this was put together in haste and I didn't have too long to spend searching around the interwebs so I just headed straight to a few of my favourite online stores and never moved on! For today's Office Wish list... well it's pretty much straight out of Pottery Barn. I love the office furniture they have available... and could quite happily deck out my whole room - house even - from there. There's a definite theme going on here, with mostly neutral rustic or slightly vintage elements... I'd just add colour with some temporary and easily changeable items so I could switch them out seasonally. Yep I'm pretty happy with this look... now I just need to hunt high and low to find similar items in New Zealand. If anyone can point me in the right direction I'd love to hear :-)

1.Galvinized Metal Pails from Pottery Barn - I'm not sure that these would look quite so good with my hotch-potch of pens so I may just have to display pretty single colour items in there like this.
2. Cavallini File Folders - I adore Cavallini stationery and these are such a fun way to keep your papers in order.
3. Grand Phone - why can they not make phones to look this cool these days?
4. Zinc Mail Storage - love the look of this to keep mail or magazines in, or even rolls of gorgeous decorative paper.
5. Rustic Wall Organiser - I have been coveting this fantastic wall organiser for quite some time now... and if I had a trip to the US planned this would absolutely be accompanying me on the plane home!
6. Ordinal Dresser - I LOVE LOVE LOVE this!!! And desperately want it in my office!!
7. Cavallini Calender - I've bought one of these the past two years running and for 2011 I think I'm going for the Garden one... best of all they make for fantastic pictures to frame once the month is past.
8. Roving Rays Lamp - love the shape of this, it would be perfect on the white trestle desk I'm planning on finding!
9. White Cubby Organiser - I think I have a think for numbers!! Oh the options of what to display in here are endless!!!
