Working from home can be exciting yet daunting at the same time. With the luxury and convenience to be in the comfort of your own home where you can get into work mode and enjoy your favorite motivational playlist (out loud), a beautiful home office becomes the ultimate haven for productivity. But how do you stay focused while working from home?
Start with Home Decor Inspirations
Your home office is a dedicated space to inspire you, keep you motivated, and keep your workflow going so you can accomplish big things. An unorganized and messy home office won’t keep you inspired and focused for long.
Maximize your productivity and creativity with home decor ideas you like. If it looks nice and feels good whether you like the color, texture, or style consider incorporating it in your decor.
Wellness Reminder: Embrace the beauty of imperfection and a work in progress lifestyle inspired by Japanese philosophy wabi-sabi.
Keep it Simple and Functional
Have fun with decor ideas but don’t go crazy with too many ideas (unless you’re a professional interior designer, then by all means, tell us which trends you like!) The key to an organized work space is simplicity and a minimalist decor style that is free of distractions. Imagine how you plan to spend your time in your ideal home office. What activities will you use the space for? This will help you understand how to create a functional and beautiful work space.
Will you need a whiteboard for brainstorming? Do you need to set up a conference call area? How many filing cabinets or shelves might you need? What about a fancy bookcase? A coffee table? (With fancy coffee table books, of course.) How about a lounge area for a mental break? Or even a workout space for a much needed midday stretch or afternoon yoga session?
Wellness Reminder: Find inspiration from design aesthetics. Form follows function.
Own Your Space
Whether you are decorating your home office or any room, it is your personal space. Your style. Your way. If it looks good to you and you like it, go for it.
Remember the rule about keeping it simple? Scratch that. Rules are meant to be broken anyway. Once you have a vision of what you want to achieve, rules are just guidelines. Try different ideas. Mix and match unexpected colors.
Wellness Reminder: Honor your intention by honoring your space.
Light Up Your Space
Create an energetic mood or relaxing vibe with the right lighting.
A task lamp or LED desk lamp for your work area is needed while ambient lighting or color changing mood lamps make sense if you want to incorporate a relaxing lounge area, need creative inspiration, or just want a space to unwind and take mental breaks.
Turn it up (literally) with statement lighting if you’re really feeling creative. Some of our favorite statement lighting inspirations are pendant lights, chandeliers, and geometric designs.
Wellness Reminder: If it feels right, mission accomplished.
Bonus Tip: Switch up your playlist for a motivational boost or to unwind during breaks.
Keep Wellness in Mind
Last and most important, however you design your home office, create a dedicated space that is comfortable, relaxing, and allows you to enjoy a moment of wellness anytime you need.
Whether that means furnishing your home office with the most stylish matching ergonomic desk and chair (oh, we know you have expensive taste) or setting up a simple “wellness tea bar” or fruit infused water bottle, incorporating wellness habits in your daily space and routine only encourages you to stay nourished on your wellness journey.
Ultimate Wellness Reminder: Invest in wellness products to create the perfect environment and rituals for self care. Some of our favorite wellness inspirations are aromatherapy diffusers, essential oils, botanical soaps, and CBD products to help stay grounded and focused.
