When setting up your home office, décor should be similar to the rest of your house.
Whether you’re running a business from home, or your home office is simply a space in the home where you keep the computer, and store files & books, you still want an office space that feels comfortable, as it is still a part of the home. Furniture pieces and accessories for the office that integrate parts of your style and personality, but still provide a space for organization is an important part of the home office balance. Why not pop large lamp on, or next to your desk for ambience and a comfortable chair for working on. The homey, yet creative balance is the perfect setting for comfort, creativity and of course will lead to productivity.
Keep a clean, focused mind with a neutral palette
Paint walls and furniture in neutrals, then add your colour in colour with a blind, wallpaper behind the desk, and cushion on your chair, in pretty, colourful prints and fabrics.
Why not decorate your workspace with a bold wallpaper?
Don't be afraid of introducing a bold, eccentric pattern into a small space behind a desk, as an interesting wallpaper will cleverly distract from a messy desk and can play with the perception of space, making this ideal if you don’t have a large area for your home office. If you’re not so brave, then why not hang a pin board above the desk, and pin on some wallpaper samples?

Add a bold bookshelf
For a productive working space, accessible storage is so important, and what better way to add accessible storage that a bold bookshelf. Add character to your bookshelf by filling it with interesting, and visually appealing books to add a sense of décor to the space. Adding interesting accessories, such as our 'Horn Handle' Magnifier, to the home office is ideal for adding a special, quirky touch to the room.
Add an interesting chair to liven up your workspace
The desk is obviously meant as the focal point of the home office, so make it stand out even more by adding a quirky, fun chair in front of it. Our Reims chairs are modern and bold, ideal for keeping the workspace neutral, but adding that interesting, decorative touch. And they'll look right at home on your Pinterest page!
Accessorising your desk
Last but not least, the accessories you choose to add to your desk are just as important as the décor to complete the look. Why not add a decorative notebook, egg timer, or quirky ornament to the desk space?
