"Putting yourself out there" may not be everyone's idea of a comfortable lifestyle, but for the home office, having open shelving works wonders. Instead of keeping the mess tucked away in some hidden corner, the sheer visibility of the clutter may just been the incentive you need to consciously start categorizing all those miscellaneous sheets of papers laying all over the place.
Of course, there's plenty of other elements at play here. For one, the desk is not much of a desk, but a miniature version of one. Seeing as you can barely fit anything other than a laptop on it (which is probably a good thing for those of you who tend to find yourselves constantly targeting an empty flat space to set down yet another random sheet of paper/bill/whatever). Hey, it's alright. I've been guilty of this as well.
As for desktop decoration, instead of a cork or bulletin board, a string is used in conjunction with paper clips to hang inspiration right above the eye level of the laptop. And is that a floor clear of wire clutter? That's plus points there, folks.
