Happy Monday, friends! Today I’m sharing my Home Office tour! As an online student & blogger, I work from home every single day. It’s important for me to have a space that is not only functional, but joyful as well. I need my home office to stand on its own, not feel like an extension of another room in the house. That’s why the color scheme & decor of my office space is different than any other area of our house. It might look a little funny, but it’s my corner of happy.
1. You do not need to go out and buy all new decor when revamping an area of your home or office. Instead, exchange decor with another room in your home. A few of the pieces you’ll see around my desk were actually in our master bathroom last year.
2. Pick your color scheme. I have a white desk with black legs, so I chose white shelving units and black frames. I decided on pink as my accent color, since I already have so much pink decor around the house that never seems to fit anywhere well! And, my best friend gave me the cutest & truest pink & white mug for Christmas, so pink was an obvious choice!
3. If you’re working from home, angle your desk in a way that makes you feel the most productive. For me, this changes every few months. Right now my desk is turned sideways against the wall, and I now face the side of my husband’s desk. This works out well for us because it allows him to more easily show me projects he’s been working on from his monitor. Having my desk sideways also allows room for my storage cubby unit to be next to me, instead of in the middle of the room where we had it before. Keeping necessities nearby can be so essential when trying to keep a space clean. You’ll be less likely to let papers pile up if you’re close to your filing system.
That’s it for my Home Office Tour! I hope you found it helpful! How do you decorate your home office? Let me know in the comments below!
