A Home Office Makeover
If the past year has taught us anything, it’s that a home office is something we should consider pouring some energy into. Because you never know when you are going to need it! With that in mind, we teamed up with some of our friends to design a functional, unique, and inspired space that you can look forward to working in!
Instead of zooming into your next meeting with your bed headboard or messy house as the background (we have all done it), make a statement with Wall Blush wallpaper! We chose one of our favorite designs, Wild Blues, to bring our home office some life and could not be happier with the result. The wallpaper was near effortless to put on and makes a world of a difference in the overall feel of any space.
Even though we were aiming to create a professional environment, this room is slipper-friendly! So why not add some other cozy elements to make it a more inviting and producing space. Our friends from RugsUSA made a huge difference in our space with their 5x8 Light Pink Paddle Area Rug. It’s a great way to soften the look of harsh wood floors or carpeting, based on the space you’re working with, and add a pop of color! The soft pink paired so nicely with our statement wall. We also decided to add some functional seating with our wood and wicker bench, topped with some of our new, natural-colored pillows. Whether you invite someone in for a meeting or need a fresh space to work on your laptop, adding more seating is always a must!
With an office comes paperwork, office supplies, and all sorts of other things that need to be stored. We were excited to add in two meshworks shelves from Design Ideas to provide both function and fun! The pink went perfectly with our rug and was a great contrast with our statement wall. And then there are the little things! Paper and mail found a great spot on one of the shelves in our Melia paper basket, while magazines and files found a home in some of Design Idea's Mesh storage bins!
One of the most important things to consider when revamping your home office is what kind of desk you want. Standing desks have been all the rage recently because they promote a healthy lifestyle and are said to increase productivity. Luckily Flexispot offers you a desk where you don’t have to choose standing or sitting- it's adjustable! We could not have been more pleased with our 55 inch L Shaped Computer Desk (natural top). It adds so much functionality and sophistication to the space with its modern edge and technology. Treat yourself to a desk that does it all! We promise you won’t regret it.
You know we couldn’t create a home office without adding some decorative touches! Some of our favorite additions that gave the room just the flare and personality it needed were:
- Plants- whether you decide to go green or artificial, place your plants in some of our favorite woven baskets (both hanging and sitting), or a glass vase.
- Floor baskets- these can be so handy in holding miscellaneous items, throw blankets, or even toys for furry friends. They also add a great natural element to the space that is very refreshing.
- Fun *officey* items- we sprinkled in some little office elements like a colorful desk calendar, handy little silicone storage containers that have endless possibilities, and an out-of-the-box pencil cup. Just get creative in what you use!
