If you spend most of your time during the week in your home office, why not spend a little time sprucing up the space so it's an enjoyable place to work? There's no reason your home office shouldn't be just as decorative as the rest of your home. If you're stumped as to how to decorate this space, here are a few simple design ideas:
A flower pick-me-up
Bring a bit of nature into your space with a vase of freshly cut flowers. A floral display brings color, texture and a pleasant smell to your workspace.
Use personal items
Surround your space with personal items to customize your office space. Open shelving above your desk can hold books, works of art and pictures of friends and family. Traditional cabinetry can store work essentials. This homeowner chose to reflect his love of sailing with a vintage nautical lamp and hats from sailing clubs around the world.
Energize the space
One super simple way to bring personality into your home office is with a bold, decorative rug. Unexpected choices can wake up the room and make it more visually appealing.
Paint the wall in front of your desk with chalkboard paint. This way, you can easily create a calendar that can be seen while you work.
