This Desk Wants to Help Improve Your Productivity

We totally get it — it’s really hard to focus some work days. Productivity, especially when you’re a freelancer or contract worker, can be brutal. Whether it’s working from home, from a coffee shop or (like us some days) from your bed, maintaining that work routine can be a bit tricky at times. Sure, there are all sorts of tips and tricks (and apps) for that, and everyone comes up with their own way of coping (putting on makeup, walking around the block, leaving the house, etc.), but sometimes you just need a truly mobile office. Introducing: Devide.

Invented by Rami Santala for his graduation project at The Royal College of Art, Devide aims to help bring “normalcy” to mobile workers through an efficient, succinct mobile office. We mean that literally too: Depending on how you fold it, Devide can be a privacy screen, a laptop sleeve, a stand or a even a work surface.

There’s also a bonus Bluetooth connectivity element that will start your work apps for you and shut down any you deem a distraction (sorry, Arrow Hero!). It will help you make those invoices more accurate, as it keeps track of your working hours, and will help you achieve more of a work-life balance. There doesn’t really seem to be a downside to this little guy. And as mobile workers ourselves, we hope Santala gets the funding he needs to make this a reality! Once his website on Cargo Collective gets up and running, we will be able to internet-stalk him and the status of this cool invention.

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
