Home Office Reveal!
Ya know it sure doesn’t seem like work whenever I get to be in my slippers working from home in our new home office! It’s not quite dialed in just how I want it to be yet, but I just couldn’t wait to share it with ya’ll!
The office is directly across from the dining room, so we decided to do more of a group work space and have a dining table in exchange for a typical desk. This way it can be multifunctional when we have dinner parties and can double as a dining space.
When it comes to bookshelves, keeping a neutral palette is key. It is so easy for them to look cluttered. I went with lots of baskets in different shapes and style to provide extra storage. From there I added in a few succulents, candles, flowers, and lanterns for interest.
Working from home with kids is NO JOKE. It takes tons of careful planning, lots of luck, and for all the stars to align perfectly and a unicorn to appear for it to actually work. I try to get an overlap where both boys are napping at the same time for at least an hour a day. (This doesn’t always happen…)
There is something about having a dedicated “work space” with this home office that is making me slightly more productive. It’s also so much easier to stay organized when all of my paper work or office accessories are right in front of me.
When we were looking at homes this was something I was really wanting to find to streamline my day to day living. I’m so grateful we were able to find the perfect one!
For this house I’m going for a mix of bright/light airy and modern with rustic accents. I thought this light fixture matched that vibe perfectly!
Travel and discovering different sights and cultures is so important to me. So this smap mural was the perfect decorative touch! I LOVE that we can show the boys with this map mural. I want to put pins on the different places we go. It’s got such a cool look, but also is a great educational tool too!
So happy to have this extra space! If you are in a small space, HERE was my small scale home office solution in our old home.
P.S. I’ve been LOVING this OVERSIZED SWEATER. I’m wearing a small for reference. It’s long enough to wear with leggings and cozy enough to be comfy lounging at home in!
