Home Office Inspiration from All Angles

By: Kealia Reynolds From all angles

When reimagining your home office, you don’t have to stick to a strict template. Even if you don’t have the space in your house or apartment to section off an entire room for your home office, there are plenty of creative ways to turn the space you do have into a productive work environment. Here are six snapshots of our favorite home office inspiration from all angles.

Why we like it

The homeowners did a great job of maximizing their space to the fullest. Quietly secluded to one corner of the living room, this home office is just barely out of reach from the hustle and bustle of daily home life. A mounted TV doubles as a computer monitor and both the window and hanging lamp provide adequate light for maximum productivity.

Why we like it

The simplicity of this home office is reassuring for those of us who can’t dedicate the time and energy to redecorate or elaborate on an already existing office space. Sometimes, the presence of a chair and desk is all you might need to get into a working mindset.

One of the things we really love about this home office is how the homeowners found a desk with character and maximized the open space they had to create an environment where they could successfully accomplish their work.

Why we like it

For the do-it-all parents who find motivation and encouragement from their surroundings, this space is for you. Anna’s home office creates an unobtrusive transition between work and play with family photographs, books on religion and design, and willow blue jars. The built-in shelves tell stories of a life well lived and impart a sense of joy to the work being done. One of our favorite features? The cork board. We can already see our Pinterest mood boards coming to life.

Why we like it

Sleek, minimalist, and to the point. The lack of décor in this home office can be beneficial for those who are easily distracted by their surroundings. Though the work station looks more like an extension of shelves than an actual desk, there’s plenty of space in this home office to encourage lounging and creative reflection. Especially with that velvet chair just begging us to take a seat.

Why we like it

We can already feel the warm breeze coming through the window as we diligently do our work and sip on a glass of ice-cold, sweet tea. It’s safe to say that there’s no shortage of light in this home office—with the large window directly over the desk and the back door on the left, there’s plenty of natural light to get those creative juices flowing. The presence of light also makes this home office seem less daunting and more approachable—just the boost we need when we have strict deadlines to meet.
