8 Cute Ideas from a Home Office in Taguig
Interior designer Rossy Yabut-Rojales inspires us to create a happy working area
For Real Living Space 2013, interior designer Rossy Yabut-Rojales worked on an Instagram-worthy home office that served as a workshop area for the participants. She thought of it as an ideal space for a work-at-home mom but we think it's also perfect for anyone who loves fun, bright, and colorful things.
Looking for ideas for your own work area? Check out these decorating tips!
Take it from the (design) experts: having your own work corner can dramatically increase your productivity rate!
If you don't have a personal work area yet, now is the time to look for a quiet spot at home. Choose one near a window so you can have natural light during the day. This will help you see your work better and cut down on your electricity costs.
Now that you have your own nook, bring in the home office essentials: a comfortable (and pretty!) chair, a nice desk with enough tabletop space, and an efficient storage system.
For this space, Rossy Yabut chose a Sophie chair and other pieces from Heima. You can learn more about Heima's latest collection here.
Surround yourself with lovely pieces to keep you in a positive mood! In this home office, Rossy chose items like a pink rotary phone and a pink typewriter for a charming vintage look.
Keep your files and other work-related things in one place with a tall open shelf. Invest in one that is functional and stylish.
On a budget? You can repaint one that you already have at home! Remember: choose a paint color that will brighten up your home office. Click here for a simple and easy DIY painting how-to.
Instead of buying a regular tape dispenser, choose a cute shoe-shaped one at bookstores near you. It may be a bit more expensive but it can definitely add more character to your office.
You can also personalize your old tape dispenser and other office supplies with stickers, markers, and washi tape.

Every well-decorated space needs to have an accent wall. Before you splurge on an expensive painting for your home office, remember that you can always try DIY wall art ideas. For this space, Rossy tried Pantone color swatches.
