Is it your dream to create a stylish home office? It’s hard to feel inspired or to work efficiently in a dull office. You don’t have to spend a fortune to make small changes that can lift your space from drab to fab with these tips and tricks.
Clear your workspace from piles of random papers and folders, books you are not using and other clutter that has made its way into your office. If you have not or will not use the item in 3 months, put it away.
There will no doubt be folders or books you will need at hand. Use magazine file holders or stylish boxes to neatly store them. Open rattan baskets available from Bed Bath n’ Table also look great.
Light it up
Add a table lamp to your workspace. It will lift the mood and with the great range of lamps out there, you’ll be sure to find one that can become a feature.
If you have space why not add an occasional chair and create a reading nook. Perfect for off-screen work, you can position the chair to maximise natural light. Pop into Focus on Furniture to choose the perfect chair.
Add more colour
Using an accent colour against a neutral palette can make the room ‘pop’. Denim blues and lush greens are the colours forecast for the year ahead.
Your bookshelf has so much styling potential. Work it right. While there are no hard and fast styling rules, some great tips are to stack books horizontally and vertically, add a collection of objects, layer objects and incorporate some artwork.
