4 Spaces From Instagram That Give Us #HomeOfficeGoals

These study spots will make you want to work from home forever!


As much as we want to keep our home a place for rest and recreation, it is inevitable that every now and then we may be required to finish a few office-related tasks in the comforts of our sanctuary. 

This is probably why a lot of homeowners have gotten into making sure that they are able to accommodate a creative yet functional working environment in their space. Whether you are only starting to build your own or you are looking into revamping your nook, here are some ideas you can consider:

Even if you are working with very limited room, there's no need to worry because you can turn any tight corner into a makeshift office with a few shelves, hanging bins, and a fold-up table. You can also use an accent chair in a bright color to really make the space come alive. 

RL Tip: Need more storage space? A vintage box or a few wooden crates can be used to store your magazines and paperwork.

When designing shared work quarters, compact furniture is a must. Instead of purchasing two bulky tables, consider going for a long, custom-made desk with steel cabinets that double as support. You can also add floating shelves if you need more room for storage. 

RL Tip: To give the illusion of separate spaces, you can hang wall decor in the middle to create a divider of sorts.

There's nothing like a sweet sight to inspire creativity. If you can't place your study area near a window, you can create your own view by displaying travel-inspired photos that will motivate you to get things done. Take it a step further by decorating the room in the theme of your framed piece.

When in doubt, choose white. It's a no-fail color that looks good with every other hue, style, and decor silhouette. Make it stand out more by pairing it with light-washed wooden pieces for a crisp and streamlined look.
