Home office decorating is the perfect project to tackle in the new year.
Having an organized space where you can be productive, think clearly, and be inspired is a beautiful thing. For many of us, this space is a home office or study room.
Dedicating an area within your home for these activities brings with it so many benefits. Your ability to focus on your work or hobby improves dramatically. Not to mention, the time saved by not having to move your supplies, files, or gear in and out of a multi-function space.
Home Office Decorating Ideas
The challenge with creating a really incredible home office, I think, is the lack of inspiration.
If you come from a traditional office job, you probably had little more than a cubicle. So, the idea of what a full home office should be and could be is foreign to us.
To get a good idea of what is possible we have to seek out examples. At least, I did.
That being said, if you have found yourself stuck when it comes to decorating this area of your home, I’ve got you covered.
Here are 5 inspiring home office decorating ideas to inspire you.
1 – A Shared Work Table
If you’re a paperless kind of person and the majority of your work and files reside online there’s no need to acquire large filing cabinets or bookcases.
This example of a simple, yet incredibly chic work table is gorgeous. Without a ton of other furniture taking up real estate in your room, you can opt for an oversized desk like this and share it.
Style the room with an accent wall and incredible light fixture and you’re good to go.
2 – Bold Metals
Choosing a metal, whether it be gold, silver, or bronze to feature in your home office will help create a cohesive design.
The bold gold in the example below is sprinkled around the room brilliantly.
From the chair legs to the drawer pulls, and even the feet on the printer cart, the intention behind the design is clear. It’s modern, feminine, and a bit bold. I love it!
3 – Nature Inspired
This nature-inspired reading nook is lovely.
If you like the idea of bringing the outdoors into your home but aren’t sure how to do it, this is a great example. Starting with a small space, particularly one that is intended for calm and focus is a great idea.
The floating shelves above the built-in desk complement are complemented by the chair, floor, and other wooden accents.
4 – Textural Retreat
Incorporating a variety of textures into your design is a great idea for any room.
For a home office, it works especially well for softening the sometimes rigid experience of work. The office shown below is gorgeous and full of texture from the accent wall to the footstool and plant basket.
This space really brings home to the office.
5 – New Neutrals
Gray as the new neutral is here to stay. If you want to create a sophisticated, contemporary look in your home office, opt for gray and white.
This example from the Deal Lillie Blog is incredibly beautiful. The variation of gray tones throughout the space paired with the brass accents is divine.
This is totally up my alley!
I hope this post gave you a bit of decorating inspiration. Whether you’re working with a large room or a little nook, taking the time to decorate your workspace is always worth it.
Remember, your home office should be a balance of form and function. Make it a little cozy, so you don’t mind spending time there, and make it highly functional so that you get your work done without distraction.
