Dee Adams‘ home office in her lovely Oakland loft drew a lot of comments. The bright orange retro calendar on her desk was particularly popular. Dee found another similar vintage calendar in very good condition which she is giving away. Just head over to her blog and leave a comment for your chance to win. Good luck!

The editors over at Etsy liked Dee Adams’ Oakland home and studio so much they’ve included it in their Get The Look: Decor section. Christine, a writer and editor at Etsy, took the studio as a starting point and put together an amazing list of furniture and objects all from Etsy sellers. She’s done a great job. Here’s just a few of the cool things she found.
1. A red in/out tray from Found Vintage Style.
2. Orange desk lamp from Vintage on the Make.
3. Laser cut bamboo calendar and clock from Decoy Lab.

Let me know if you are getting sick of calendars. I still haven’t bought one so I continue to look. The savvy editorial team over at Design Milk offer up their calendar choices, including this one from Blue Ant Studio that is inspired by a mid-century modern aesthetic (yes, that is an Eames plywood chair by the pool). And Blue Ant are kindly offering the calendar for free – you just download the pages from Flickr and print.

Designer Nate Duval’s take on a 2010 calendar.
If you are still wondering which calendar is just right for your office let me confuse you with a few more choices! So many of us rely on our electronic calendars – and they are truly great tools (those reminders that spring up on my screen are brilliant). But there’s nothing quite like a beautifully designed calendar that you can hang on the wall. It acts as a piece of art as well as a functional office tool. I went to Etsy and found a slew of handmade calendars to suit all tastes.
A new addition to the ‘Keep Calm’ series – a single page calendar to pin on your bulletin board. It is printed on a Crane & Co. 100% cotton card and you can choose from a range of colors.
A lovely letterpress page-per-month calendar. Holes drilled in the top of each page let you hang it easily.
Another month-per-page calendar with handy notes section and a clean simple design.
This is a perpetual calendar and it arrives via email as a PDF. Designed by Patricia Zapata of A Little Hut.
Editor’s note: I owe a huge debt to Christine at Etsy. She did the Look on the Bright Side story for the Etsy Finds section that I culled for this post. Thanks Christine! Nice work.
