I’ve been dreaming of a proper home office for months. I usually work from our dining table or curled up on the sofa with my laptop. Both are perfectly fine but it would be really nice to have a dedicated space. I’d love one spot to keep everything instead of spreading out across various rooms in the house. I also want somewhere that I feel mentally set to work. Having a dedicated space would help me to stay focused, it would stop me from trying to multi-task in the house throughout the day (I’m always putting on the washing and tidying up). I’ve also read that it will help me see my work as a business rather than a hobby. And a decent office chair might also save my back and all those chiropractor bills.
I love clean Scandinavian design and it seems particularly appropriate for a workspace. In order to maintain the minimal look it needs to be well organised, perfect for a productive working environment. I find a light, bright space motivating, it helps me to stay awake and focused. A tidy space also helps avoid too many distractions, I find there are enough already with all the emails I receive and the tabs I have open (I do tend to close my Mail and use OneTab to minimise the number of open tabs, in an attempt to reduce the distractions when I’m working on a post or project).
I use Pinterest to create mood boards for each of the rooms in my house, for further home office inspiration please take a look at my Working From Home board:
