How to Set Up Your First Home Office

Working from home is not a new concept, but recent events have created a mass shift in the American workforce and more people than ever before are working from home. While simply placing a laptop on the kitchen table is one way to work from home, having a designated home office offers a better environment for productivity and is easier to set up than you might think.

Find the right location

The first step is to find the right location for your home office. Although it’s great if you have a spare room to use, not everyone has this luxury. A corner of a master bedroom or living room, a loft area, or even a section of a well-insulated garage can work just as well.

Check out this corner office idea from MoreThanToast.org.  You’ll need a small desk and a super comfy chair!

Add Furniture & Accessories

Once you find the right space, create a list of the materials you’ll need to be productive. A formal desk is best, but if you don’t own one, then any table will work. Use bookshelves or storage cubes to keep paper, pens, and other useful items within easy reach.

The shelving above this desk from The Fashionista’s Diary is a great addition for storage!

Adjust Your Lighting

Pay attention to the lighting – both natural light and lighting fixtures. Cool light, such as sunlight, is best for productivity. Make sure you have a desk lamp or floor lamp if the room doesn’t have proper natural lighting.

This idea from Clementine Creative makes great use of natural light while having a backup lamp ready to go as well.

Make It Your Own Space

Once you have the essentials set up, it’s time to add some personal touches. Add a plant or decorate a wall with pictures you enjoy, to bring the space to life. Consider the storage elements as well, such as pen holders or file folders.

We love this space featured on the Viva Decora blog.

A home office doesn’t need to be fancy to be an effective and enjoyable space. The most important consideration is to ensure you can work in peace; it should also offer a pleasant place to be productive that is separate from your living space so you can unplug at the end of the workday.

2020 Color Trends

Classic Blue is Pantone’s 2020 Color of the Year.

So Many Colors to Choose From!

Everyone is announcing their color trends for 2020 and I’ll admit, I get sucked in each time. I love looking at the gorgeous colors and dreaming of the possibilities in my own home. Pantone always comes out with a color of the year and this year it’s Classic Blue, explaining  …

“Instilling calm, confidence, and connection, this enduring blue hue highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era.”

Harmonious Hues

Benajmin Moore has a selection of colors they recommend for 2020 as well.

Benjamin Moore calls these colors “harmonious hues” and I couldn’t agree more! I can see these in a living room with plants and natural sunlight shinning in. Which do you like the best?

Natural Elements

Behr also picked out some favorites for 2020. Their choices were inspired by natural elements such as sky, earth, water and plants.

Behr also comments that “Seasonal changes and world exploration also play a role in how we relate to color.” – I love this! It is so true – different parts of the world have different colors painting their landscapes, what a great way to bring those elements and memories into your own home.

Infinite Calmness

Sherwin-Williams says “On the horizon between ocean and evening sky rests a color of infinite calmness” … ok that sounds good to me! We’re all living busy lives – bring on the color of 2020 that invokes calmness. Has anyone used a color this bold before?

If you’re looking to add colors to your home that invoke calmness, peacefulness, and serenity then it looks like these 2020 colors are going to help you out!

Add 2020 Color Trends to Your Home

Here are a few ways you can add these colors to your home. You don’t have to repaint an entire room (or even paint the walls … think about your furniture, too). Comment below if you’re feeling inspired or if you already have any of these colors in your house. I’d love to see a picture of how you incorporated it!
