Home office-decorating in January just seems to be the place to begin organizing after a busy holiday season.
As the holiday’s come to a close we’re left with a little cleaning up to do. Whether it’s a pile of ignored paperwork, email or simply getting the house back together, January seems to be the ideal time to get it done! But where to start …
Well since this week is “Home office safety & Security Week” it seems like a good place to begin. And with the ever-increasing trend towards Remote Working, your home office may be in need of a serious makeover!
Clutter, especially in your home office can act as a deterrent from moving forward with full energy and clarity. According to Feng Shui, “clutter is one of the biggest obstacles blocking positive flow of good things into your life.”
But, not everything is clutter!
Sometimes there just isn’t a place to put things. If this is the case, it’s time to investigate storage solutions to work into your home office-decorating.
Lucky for you, storage solutions whether it’s a DIY project, permanent built-in storage, or maybe just some good shelving and a coat of paint are in abundance and usually on sale this month!
You know what, do it for you! Begin designing your home office to suit your needs both visually and for organization.
Here are few tips to get you going on your home office-decorating project for a prosperous 2017!
Small space home office-decorating ideas:
If you’re just starting out and don’t have a lot of space or money…
Stay stylishly organized with floating shelving.
Paint! A color combination that makes you feel good will keep you that way throughout the day.
Lighting is key in any home office but especially if you choose a deeper hue paint color. So to make it work, add a variety of lighting from task to general lighting.
A couple of my favorite deep Blue Paint colors are, Hale Navy HC-154 and Lucerne AF-530 from Benjamin Moore.
The image below is an example of an interactive paint color tool from BenjaminMoore.com that that’s very easy to use and really helpful.
Add your personality:
What’s your design style? The great thing about a home office is that you can decorate anyway you like! If vintage is your style, go for it, personalize your home office with wallpaper!
Blend your home office into your family, living or dining room.
This idea may take a little more planning to achieve but is definitely doable!
And the benefit is that you have a large open space to enjoy your day in while you work!
It’s Friday!! I hope everyone has a fun weekend!
