I know it can be overwhelming to work from home if it’s something you’re not accustomed to doing. So, why not make it pretty? All you need a working chair, desk and a corner to make an office if you don’t have an entire room devoted to your work. (Ok, maybe you need a rug, plant, lamp, bookcase, printer and laptop too!)
I designed a few rooms to help you. And if you’re not feeling creative today, no worries. Copy these room designs to a “T”, shop the items and send me a pic when it’s all done!
TRY COPYING THIS ROOM
Here is a classic design combining white and cognac leather.
ANOTHER ROOM IDEA
Go a bit more modern with a nod to Mid-Century design.
WHAT ABOUT TRYING THIS SWEET ROOM?
Wait, what, Walmart?
I have this same brass shelf in my office, actually. Would you believe it’s from Walmart? I know you’re taking a double-take and so am I! $129 and I put two side by side since I had the wall space. See? The shelves are glass (not plastic) and well made. Turned out pretty, right? (#notanad)
This office sits at the backside of my master bedroom. I actually enjoy having my chair face the window. When the sunlight pours in, I get so excited. (Cheap thrills these days, people.)

Funny story…I actually ordered 1/10 of the tile we needed. When it arrived, we had a good laugh in her driveway. It didn’t seem like enough tile and MY BAD, it wasn’t. The amount of tile I ordered was enough for this square in the middle of room. Haha. Oops. Thankfully, she kept me around after that snafu.
I truly believe communicating visually through a mood board helps the both of us to clarify the creative vision.

Goodbye, carpet! Hello, new tile. I also opted to remove the molding. IMO the molding was making a small room look even smaller. I wanted to draw your eye up to the beautiful light fixture. The fan wasn’t necessary in this room, so the light really could become the focal point. Fresh coat of paint: Alabaster by Sherwin Williams and it makes a difference to do this in any room of your house! Fresh paint is always inexpensive and a great idea.

I don’t know what season you are finding yourself in at the moment. But, consider this my hug.
Day by day, we are making it through! (We don’t always now how, but we are.)
All the best,
