My New Home Office Inspiration

Now that our house is nearing completion (move in next month!!), I have started to put together some furniture concept boards for each room to help me envisage each space.

I am really excited to get stuck into decorating and wanted to share my ideas for my very first home office/studio. I can’t believe I get a whole room to create in! I’ve been so used to sprawling out on our dining table for years.

While searching for inspiration, I came acrosss a co-working company called WeWork. They caught my attention as they have quite a few offices all over the world for creative businesses to meet, work and connect. I love how their interiors don’t feel like a boring a office space, and have separate work areas to lounge. It feels homely, fresh and contemporary. I want my home office to feel the same; inspiring, relaxing and a space for me to enjoy working on exciting projects.

My Home Office/Studio Inspiration Board

I love the simplicity of a monochromatic scheme with added details of natural elements and pops of colour. I am envisaging lots of greenery throughout our house and believe including them in my home office will bring lots of energy and life to the room. I’m hoping I don’t kill them all in the first week of moving in!

My love of DIY will most certainly be apparent as I want to create an inspiration board made out of reinforcement steel and pegs. Magazine clippings, photos and samples I adore can be hung and also double as art.

I was very lucky that my husband bought me a 2015 Stendig calendar for Christmas! This will hang very proudly above my trestle table desk.

I’ve started to purchase a few of these pieces and can’t wait to see it all come together and start blogging in my very own home office!

  1. Hi Melissa
    It looks so fantastic, I adore that rug and I am in love with the yellow wire stool. Be sure to send me some pics when your home office is finished, I'd love to see it. xo

    1. Thanks Yvette, I can't wait to show you how the room turns out! 3 weeks to go! xx

  2. Having an exceptional interior creates a lively office space that feels fresh, homely and contemporary. A similar home office space is relaxing, inspiring and provides a space to enjoy working on exciting projects. The simplicity of a monochromatic design with additional details of natural components and pops of colour is adorable. For DIY fanatics, hanging photos, samples and magazine clippings is an excellent idea as it also doubles as art.
