Organization is key when it comes to a home office. It is true, nobody works well in a messy home office! Don’t waste your time trying to file everything away in unappealing filing cabinets – utilize your vertical space for smaller sized offices. Putting cabinets in from floor to ceiling is a great way to optimize your office space! Lori Paranjape, did a beautiful job of making this office feel open and clean, even though it is a tight space.

Connect your space with the great outdoors. “When I imagine an office space, I like to create a mood and an interesting composition of colors and textures.

4. Create An Accent Wall
Don’t be afraid to add a fun statement wall. No matter what your requirement, every home office could do with a lovely accent wall that gives the room an instant focal point. Whether you go bold with paint, funky with wallpaper, or organic with texture, an accent wall is an easy way to add interest to a space without making it feel overwhelming. We love how Katie Grace Designs used a brick accent wall in this office space. “The brick accent wall was our starting point for inspiration. The brick wall really set the tone of this room with creating a warm, cozy feel for this office. The Henkel desk was the perfect desk for this room and made a statement in this small space against all the neutral tones.” – Katie Rees, Founder of Katie Grace Designs.
Get the Look: We adore the industrial look of our Henkel Desk. Wood framed black iron quatrefoils and simple lines makes this a stunning writing desk, perfect for getting work done!

Create an eclectic mix of old and new furniture. This home office decor idea is your opportunity to save some money, so, don’t be afraid to steal decor from other rooms in the house! A subtle mix of vintage and modern furniture will make your home office feel warm and lived in, rather than feeling cold and uninviting. Using an antique desk or antique rug, is a great way to create that eclectic mix.

6. Let Light In
Bring on the natural light! You can never have enough natural light when it comes to a home office. Natural light not only makes a space feel bigger and brighter, but it will also make you feel alive and refreshed. We could work all day at this office designed by Nadina Home & Design. The space offers the perfect amount of natural light without being too overwhelming.

Breathe some life into your space with plants so you will want to stay longer. A lovely plant is said to help keep you feeling calm and clean the air—plus it looks pretty too! Be sure to choose a plant that not only looks lovely, but also one that is low maintenance and easy to care for.
