Like any part of your home, our work desks should be a reflection of who we are. From the furniture to the knickknacks, it should be composed of things we like and pieces that tell our story. 

Before you start revamping your space, ask yourself these three questions: What is the essence of your work? What do you do when you’re in your home office? What is your decor style? Once you have your narrative in mind, building a space that inspires you would surely be a breeze. 

To spark your creativity, we've come up with three style personalities you may identify with and some tips to go with each one! 

The Artist 

For imaginative souls, the main thing to incorporate is accessibility. Make sure everything you need is at arm's length. You can also add things that give you the drive to create like printouts of your favorite paintings or even your most meaningful artwork. 

The Go-Getter 

Whether it's a framed photo of a quote you live by or an inspirational book on success, let the thing that sparks your passion for work become the focal point of your decor. Finish off with pieces that give the vibe of effortless elegance. 


The Free Spirit 

If you're fueled by wanderlust, surround your home office with things that remind you of your love for exploring new places. You can include sentimental trinkets you've collected from your travels and pieces inspired by the next country you want to visit. 

Shot on location at Mozaic Living. Visit their showroom Mondays to Saturdays (9:00am-9:00pm) at #7, 1550 Sheridan, Mandaluyong City. For more information on the products featured, you can visit their website or follow them on Instagram for updates.
