One of the perks about working from home? Decorating your office just the way you like it!

Even if your home office plays a wide variety of roles, it should still feel like a welcoming headquarters.

Use color and textiles to spark creativity and inspiration, or add pops of color to make your space warm and inviting.

With just a few swaps, you can pull off a stylish and functional room for paying bills, helping kids with their homework, reading a book or finishing that report for your boss.

Tips for sprucing up your space

  • Hang inspirational prints and art.
  • Arrange furniture to offer a view of the outdoors.
  • Decorative frames can showcase photos of friends and family.
  • Swap boring office supplies for bright, colorful ones.

  • Plants add life and visual interest.
  • Comfortable seating makes your space more inviting.
  • A simple coat of paint does wonders; pick a fresh vivid color that inspires.
