Whether you're working remotely or learning online, decorating the desk in your home office can brighten an otherwise serious space. If boho is your style of choice, there are endless options for chic office accessories that you can add to your setup. From ceramic bud vases and agate bookends to a wooden supply organizer and a woven task lamp, here are 14 boho decor items that will give your desk the breezy, natural design overhaul it needs.

These eye-catching bookends are composed of solid chunks of agate, a colorful, crystal-like rock formation. With layers of jewel-toned rings, each piece is unique and earthy. The set will bring both organization and flair to any desk.

An entire bouquet of flowers might become overpowering and distracting on a desk, but a bud vase is the perfect way to incorporate some calming flora into the mix. These ceramics are wheel-thrown, carved, and custom-glazed, so no two are identical. Each handmade piece is textured for visual and tactile intrigue.

Keep all your writing implements in one place with this open-weave rattan utensil holder. Accented by green strips, the basket-like container will be a welcome home to your pens, pencils, highlighters, and more.

A catchall dish is a desk must-have so that your little items aren't strewn about. Jewelry, keys, and chapsticks need a spot of their own. This smooth, wooden, crescent moon-shaped vessel is beautifully celestial.

Get cozy while you work with this personal concrete fireplace. Made of sleek yet sturdy concrete, the clever contraption easily creates a small, food-safe flame. All you need to do is pour in a bit of rubbing alcohol and grab a match.

For more substantial supplies that you want to keep on your desktop, these open leather boxes will do the trick. They're handcrafted with traditional Western saddle-making techniques and the result is stunning. The vegetable-tanned leather darkens with use and exposure to sunlight, offering an authentic, worn effect.

Tiny trinkets that need to be protected or tucked away can nestle in this lidded earthenware jar. The exterior has a brushed, weathered finish, while the seagrass handle gives the piece an organic look.

With a palate of neutral tones, bright, plastic scissor handles simply won't do. This weighty pair of shears is a tool that doubles as decor. A solid brass handle and iron blades provide vintage-style character, while operating like new.

This soft suede blotter brings warmth and charm to the hard desk surface. Its practical use should be appreciated, as well — the blotter will protect the furniture against the scratches and ink stains that come from diligent work.

10. Anthropologie Takara Desk Organizer, $31.50

Natural teak wood is the hero of this beautifully simple organizer. With three compartments, it has designated room for notebooks and folders, pens and pencils, and electronic devices. It's the best way to maintain a neat and tidy desktop.

11. UO Three Tier Hanging Basket, $39

Hang this three-tier basket from the ceiling beside your desk for extra storage and decoration. The wood and netted cotton piece can house little plants, snacks, books, or whatever else you want suspended in midair.

Streamlined and dynamic, this stone essential oil diffuser is as gorgeous as it is functional. With its terra cotta hue, the porcelain machine is designed for display as it releases relaxing scents throughout your home.

Dress up and lift your computer monitor with this funky, rounded riser that is complete with storage compartments for accessories. Built with ash wood, it makes the technology section of the desk feel a bit more natural.

A handwoven seagrass shade is brilliantly paired with a curved brass stand and iron base in this task lamp that will illuminate your workspace. It's not easy to find an office light that isn't industrial and ultra-modern, so we're especially glad to have this one on our radar.
