It’s nearly September and for many of us that brings to mind the exciting turn of phrase ‘Back to School’. But there’s no need to be mourning the end of summer thanks to the following  cheerful companions shown here at Dotmaison designed to bring stylish and functional aid to study and schooling. There’s always time to start a new period of leaning, whatever your situation, and should you choose to embark on a new study, work or creative adventure there are plenty of ways to maximise your ideas and time.

Key to concepts of organisation and keeping things well planned is the humble notebook. The express use of jotting down thoughts and ideas without needing battery power or an internet connection is just one of the ways in which the pad and pen have formed such a direct contribution to work, school and study time. But, as can be seen above in the fabulous Poppy Cat Hardback A5 Notebook from Orla Kiely, studious leaning and organisation does not have to be dry, drab or boring. Far from it! The coloured gilded edges of this item along with the stunning cover emblazoned in the designer’s famous pop art style is a calling card for those who want to make notes quickly, effectively and in memorable finery.

The Out of Office Set from Ted Baker in porcelain rose is a beautifully smart way of keeping together all the essentials for productivity and organisation. Presented in a beautiful colour and design, the set includes rose gold paper clips, pencil sharpener, bow shaped fold back clips, tape, sticky note pad and 2 pencils.

Lunch breaks can get a whole lot cooler using this stylish item!



Bringing a joyously enthusiastic feel to the world of study and work, the ‘Tackle Box’ from Kate Spade  bring everything you could possible need for a well organised and active time. Including 3 pencils, 3 binder clips, 6 bow push pins, 6 bow paper clips, 1 roll of paper tape, 1 eraser, 1 pencil sharpener and 1 sticky note pad, this is an excellent and super stylish accessory for everyone looking to make their most of time spent at the desk. Like all of these items, it would make a great treat for kids or adults – indeed anyone seeking a clearer passage through work and study life!
