Decor Inspiration: The Home Office

Yes, the holidays are well and truly over - but going back to work shouldn’t be a bland and boring affair. The home office is going to rock 2017 and we take a look at some decor inspiration and tips on how to achieve the ultimate goal-crushing space.

Privacy Please |

Just because you are working from home doesn’t mean that you should be available to everyone all the time - and this goes for your office space. If you have a spare room that you convert into an home office, perfect but in a smaller home where space is everything you can still create some privacy with partitions or screens.

Get Organised |

Figure out what you need to have to ensure you are productive - do you really need seven different colour pens to write code or a bowl of paper clips if you never print anything? No? Throw it out and just keep what you need. Create a stationary station to keep the things in one neat area away from your main working space.

Hues Matter |

So you don’t think that bright red wall is going to be distracting while you try and concentrate on the task at hand? Think again - studies have shown that the best colour for home work spaces are green, blue, yellow and white. Incorporate these colours either with paint or accessories to help you stay creative and productive.

It Is All Natural |

Don’t get bogged down with dark and dreary spaces - ensure you have enough natural light flooding the space to ensure you stay focused and fresh. Adding a plant or two is also a great idea - Greenery is not just the colour of the year, it is also good for your emotional well-being throughout a busy day.
