Home office inspiration makes working at home look gorgeous
Working from home can be a dream come true for many moms, but sitting at the kitchen table is hardly inspiring. A home office doesn’t have to be a dedicated room — even carving out a small space in a room used by the whole family can help your productivity. Browse home office inspiration and add personal style and touches to carve out a workspace that works for you.
Let your workspace inspire you
In her Office Reveal on Avery Street Designs, Laura walks readers through her beautiful — and inspiring — desk area. Laura confesses that the office is visible from many areas of her home, and we think the clean, modern desk is such a stylish addition to her home. You’ll notice the visible quotes and inspiring phrases around her desk — a fabulous way to stay motivated and inspired in your office.
A beautiful workspace brightens your day
Working from home has advantages, but it can be difficult to transition into “work” mode at the start of your day. A gorgeous home office or workspace welcomes you to begin your day refreshed and inspired. Megan, from Lush to Blush, has Desk Styling Tips to help bring your personal style aesthetic to your office space.
Share your space with your little ones
We adore the space Gemma from The Sweetest Digs designed when transitioning her guest room/home office into a nursery/home office in Project Nursery: Before + After. The nursery is functional, bright and airy, and the workspace is tucked into a corner without feeling crowded. Work materials are on shelves, away from little hands, which will help with the transition when her little one becomes mobile.
Make the most of the room you have
Your home “office” doesn’t have to be a dedicated space for it to be functional. The Craft + Printing Space from Delineate Your Dwelling has transformed her guest room into a multi-purpose room. Amy spend a lot of time at her craft table — you can’t beat the light coming through her window — but the rest of the room is beautiful and functional, too.
Work with the furniture you have
Creating your ideal office space doesn’t mean re-mortgaging your home to completely refurnish your workspace. Liz, from Love Grows Wild, took an old desk from glum to glam in a Mint Desk Makeover. Refinishing wood furniture isn’t nearly as intimidating as it seems, and the steps Liz describes are clear — and so is the gorgeous, updated desk.
An organized desk increases productivity
Keeping your workspace organized helps improve your productivity. Lots of people work better in an organized space, and you won’t waste time digging around for the paperwork or materials you need. The Desk Organization tips — and gorgeous examples — from Kristin at Modish and Main are especially helpful if you’re having a hard time deciding where to put all of the things you need for your work day.
Organize your desk with pops of color
Desk accessories are the perfect place to showcase your personality in your home office space. Melissa, from A Prudent Life, organizes her desk with gorgeous accessories in Desk Organization Reveal. We love the metallic touches mixed with the colors she’s chosen — it feels whimsical and chic while keeping her desk neat and streamlined.
Personalize your desk accessories
Styling your home office means you can add personal touches to your desk accessories to fit your personal style. With just a few materials, Home Made by Carmona‘s Ursula turns a basic acrylic file box into a chic, eye-catching feature on her desk. Check out Stylized Office Accessories for instructions on how to transform your home office accessories — it’s not the first thing she’s glamorized on her desk!
