4 Tips for a Cozy Home Office
Create a space where you can relax and stay productive at the same time
If your job requires you to work from home or if you're simply planning to set up a tiny work corner where you can work on your hobbies, you need a space where you can let your creativity flow!
Here are 4 helpful tips that may just help you achieve a functional workspace at home:
Make an inspiration board
Set up a corkboard in one corner of your workspace, preferably within your line of sight. Mount magazine clippings on your board, along with other pieces that inspire you such as quotes, prints, photos of places you want to see, and even flowers!
Block the noise
Avoid things that can diminish your creativity! Eliminate elements that bother you such as unwanted noise and clutter. Make sure that your space can allow you to relax and focus on your work.

Build your library
Creativity needs inspiration and references, so stock up on books that can inspire you or help you improve your skills. Leading bookstores carry titles on design, crafts, and many other topics.
Add quirky touches
Getting out of your comfort zone can boost your creative juices, too! You can take baby steps by introducing new elements to your home that are different from your usual style. Consider adding Bohemian details and crazy-patterned pillows that can liven up your space. You can also add a few vibrant pieces to brighten up an all-white room.
