These days, most of us have likely set up a home office. For the last two years, I have worked out of our old nursery and now call the space “my room”. It has transformed into a bit of a haven for me, even if it is where I work. Having home office decor that makes the space my own + provides functionality is key for enjoying the space.
Have a look at this list of my must haves and be sure to comment with your favorites!
I got a standing desk not long after five of the six of us were home full-time doing work and school. Because I went with white to go with my office vibe, I wanted something that would bring a pop of color + keep hand marks off the wood. This desk pad gives me everything I need - a mouse pad, protection of my desk surface, and that yellow on the flip side is a beautiful pop of color.
This is another must on my desk. I love it for holding my phone during the day. You can have it plugged in thanks to the cord space on the back. The only thing I would say I don't like about it is that it doesn't give my face the best angles for video calls.
Over my desk I have "dream big" in a vinyl, but these canvases are great reminders, too. I love the script and the simple style - they'd work in any office space!
Personally, I rely on my phone, computer, FitBit, and Dot for telling the time but when I saw this super affordable time piece, I couldn't help but add it to my personal wishlist. How unique is it? I love that it makes the brain THINK about the time and it would change throughout the day.
You're going to be spending a lot of time in your home office - it should be relaxing and refreshing. Aromatherapy salt lamps can help with removing toxins and bacteria from spaces and putting a light, pleasant scent into the air. I love the dim light my himalayan salt lamp sheds on my office in the early morning - so soothing and sets me up for a great day!
If you’ve been following me for a few years, you know that I primarily worked from an office from 2009 to 2018. All that changed pretty quickly in 2018 when the company I worked for was sold and I joined a consulting firm. My front door became the door to my home and my office. I’ve loved the leap and have really adjusted to working from home.
2020 has not been easy ! If you found yourself all the sudden needing to set up a home office space, I hope these tips bring you some ideas to bring joy into your workspace. Home office decor doesn’t have to be a budget breaker. It can make a world of difference in your motivation to get stuff done.
