Do you feel bored or unmotivated when finishing your deliverables? Maybe a workstation makeover can spice things up. Here are tips on how you can work in style: 

1. Let your creativity show.

The home office of Kat Manalo Erro, owner of bag brand Katre, couldn’t be more her. Her leather bags are all lined up neatly on the shelves. She even has stylish tools, like the Bernina sewing machine and the seafoam green monogramming machine. 

2. Choose a space that is bright and airy.

With an abundance of natural light, the workspace of Hey Kessy’s owner Mansy Abesamis is a pleasant place to work in. A systematic organization of all her craft materials also makes the space even more conducive for working. 

3. Go for streamlined pieces.

Feeling overwhelmed? You won’t be if you’re working in a clean-lined home office like this. Pieces with slim silhouettes also keep this workspace from looking heavy and daunting. 

4. Add color.

The home office of entrepreneur Shar Tan doesn’t look like an office at all! Her shelves are lined with patterned paper (aside from being organized). But the two Louis Ghost chairs steal the show—who would’ve thought that these chairs can be used in an office? Get them at Dexterton, 3/L Greenbelt , Ayala Center, Makati City.

5. Have a themed workspace.  

This compact workspace tucked under the stairs sports a whimsical, woodland theme that makes for a light working environment. Find a similar desk at Lucina Home, 2/L Solenad 3, Nuvali Evoliving, Sta. Rosa, Laguna.
