Welcome back to How to Decorate Like an Adult! Today we are exploring how to decorate the home office. Work-from-home jobs are surfacing at a fast pace and as they do, office spaces are becoming more and more important to have in your home. Can you say pajama work day… everyday?! Ok, even if you don’t get to wear pajamas at the office everyday I’m confident you’ll be happy to have a space all your own at home when you need to get into the work mindset.

A desk is an obvious factor that comes with an office space. Really it comes down to what kind of storage you need, if any, in your desk. A desk with drawers always helps, especially with tidiness! Having a few drawers will keep you items organized and concealed. If you don’t have a need for a lot of storage, find yourself a table you love or any flat surface and place it on a pair of sawhorse legs.

Kudos to you if you work at a standing desk! However, I prefer a stylish comfortable chair. Find a chair thats comfortable but not too comfortable that you’ll fall asleep. I mean after all, it is an office space so maybe keep those naps to your couch and bed.

You know I love a good lamp! That love doesn’t stop at the desk. Keep your space and whatever you’re working on well lit with a stylish lamp!

Organization is key! Keep messy papers and such hidden in drawers and magazine files. For everything else not messy, find a way to put it on display so you don’t forget to do that thing that you need to do. You can also use organization boards to display art!

An office space will be pretty dreary if you don’t incorporate art. I don’t know about you, but sometimes I need a photo or painting to escape into. Make a collage on you office space wall, install shelves to display all of the pretty things, and/or pick a gorgeous photo for your computer’s screensaver. Whatever floats your boat!

Not all of us are lucky enough to have a dedicated office space in our home. If you are one of these people, find a nook in your house to call your own and set up shop! I especially love these foldaway desks that you can place on any wall.

Natural Light

Too many of us already work in cubicles without sunlight. So just a tip, find a space with natural light. Believe me, it makes a difference.
