Do you love a color so much you’d paint your desk and chair that color? This teal is a bold choice but by leaving the desktop unpainted, the color works beautifully as an accent in this pretty workspace.

The future is almost here, and it’s not too far from the Star Trek dreams of your childhood. In April, Google announced one of its newest products, Google Glass, an eyepiece a la Lieutenant Commander La Forge that allows you to access the web at (literally) the blink of an eye. Google has been wary about discussing advertising features, but this Mashable article dares to dream.

Pantone officially announced their color of the year for 2013 (is it already that time?!) and it is… Emerald! Emerald feels, for lack of a better word, fancy, don’t you think? It can bring a grand sense of opulence to a room. The above office showcases this deep green hue in desk accessories and furniture in varying textures – porcelain, velvet, embroidery, and stone. In addition to office inspiration, today we also bring you Emerald: Interiors, Runway, Men’s Style, and At Work. Now go add some green to your life (I like it paired with gold!).

Office Perks: At young, style-savvy startups, they include more than free coffee and a parking spot. In fact, there seems to be a strong trend among the Facebooks of today in establishing ultra cool offices. We’re talking a slide in lieu of stairs, a vending machine that dispenses Apple accessories, a gym, multiple restaurants, themed dress-up days, and conference rooms styled like treehouses, bungalows, and swanky apartments. And while these things may keep employees bragging about their 9 to 5, it’s also – companies argue – making them more productive. By allowing them to work out, to enjoy the latest technologies, and to be energized by their surroundings, these companies retain their workers and keep them happy.
Perhaps more importantly, company culture has become just an extension of a company’s brand. With instantaneous social media postings from employees on every level, it’s become much more important to showcase what your brand is all about in its office environment. Airbnb employees make videos on themed dress-up days at work that they then post to Facebook. These videos scream youth, community, adventurous, and fun – which is largely what they’d like you to think about their vacation services. It seems like brilliant marketing.

For the ladies this winter, it might be time to take a risk when it comes to your outerwear.

Capes are still trending while neon colors and faux fur are making grand appearances.

As we are officially approaching colder temps, it’s time to embrace the bulkier, cozier side of fashion: winter coats. Men’s coats this season range in style from the classic pea coats to odes to old hunting jackets to more adventurous striped and asymmetrical designs. Military hardware may be on its way out as wooden toggles and classically-inspired buttons are making grand appearances.
