Work It


As technology advances, more and more companies are promoting a healthy work/life balance by offering their employees the flexibility to work from home. This can be both a blessing and a distraction so it is important to create an ideal space that will delight and inspire you!

Find your space. || Maybe you don’t have an entire room to dedicate to your home office and that’s ok. A nook or even just an empty wall where you can position a desk is enough to keep you organized and focused. L-shaped desks are a great way to create a space within a space that looks clean and deliberate.

Make it your own. || If you are able to dedicate an entire room, find a design aesthetic that speaks to you. Are you an Art Deco diva or are you the Rustic Chic queen? Whichever décor suits you best, be sure to include personal touches such as pictures of loved ones, nostalgic knick-knacks, or maybe even a few of your favorite books so it feels like your own private space. Your work will only be as good as your environment – make it beautiful.

Keep it organized. || Whether it’s a nook or an entire room, no one enjoys looking at clutter and working around it proves to be counterproductive. Having storage space is key, so if you’re working with a nook it is important to choose a desk that can accommodate all of your supplies. As mentioned above, an L-shaped desk is great for creating space, but it is also great at keeping you organized because of the amount of drawer space. Throw in a few draw organizers and you are in business. If you’re designing an entire room you could take a more minimalist approach to your desk and add a credenza or a shelving unit to organize your supplies.

Take a seat. || Office chairs tend to be a little unsightly and if you’re working with a nook then you want your chair to blend in with your furniture as much as possible. Thankfully, beautiful leather chairs that have the same functionality as office chairs do exist! Do you sway more towards fashion over function? Try pairing your desk with a fun accent chair! Just remember comfort is important if you will be sitting for any length of time.

Now that you have a fabulous work space it’s time to get to work!
