A home office is a place where you can separate yourself from the rest of the world to get work done. Depending on your line of work, your workspace should be furnished with suitable furniture and office décor to make it more comfortable and easy to work in. Find inspiration with these design tricks so you can create a space that enhances your work productivity and promotes a tranquil environment.

Color Scheme

The first step in designing the perfect in-home workspace is the color palette. Choosing the perfect color scheme depends highly on your style and what colors help you maintain concentration. In your home office, choose colors that you find visually appealing (IE: not colors that you would hate)

Check out some color palettes ideas for your home office!

  • Quirky and Neat

    Bring balance to your office space with soft colors like forest greens, mustard yellows, soft browns, and dove grays. Yellows and greens freshen up your space and enhance intellect. Use neutral colors as your base and layer with bright accent colors to bring a calm aesthetic to your office space.


  • Bright and Sleek

    Create a vibrant mood with bright colors such as blues and oranges. These colors represent energy, creativity, and tranquility. They are symbols of strength and endurance perfect for any in-home workspace.


  • Neutral and Clean

    Calm and collected colors such as beige and maroon create a neutral color palette. The softness of these colors creates a relaxing aesthetic that helps with organization and productivity.


  • Bold and Unique

    Bold and colorful office spaces represent strength and power. Colors like blacks and dark greens give a room a sense of depth that enhances elegance and uniqueness.

A cross between wall décor and storage are floating shelves. Instead of a bulky bookshelf or wide cabinet, floating shelves offer plenty of storage space for books, décor, or crafts AND give you your floor space back!

Take a spin on your office by getting creative with your lighting. Table lamps and floor lamps are great for late-night or early bird workers since they just offer a simple glow. However, if you want to make things a little more exciting try neon lamps or twinkle lights around your work room. Illuminate your space with lamps to light up your in-home office!
