Flair and Functionality for Your WFH Setup

Just recently I moved into a home office space of my very own. Previously, I carved out a corner of our primary bedroom - It was a tight squeeze, but it was still MY area! These days, I’m enjoying an entire ROOM and am on the hunt for some second hand furniture to make this baby come to life! It’s got me thinkin’ about the importance of personalizing our spaces and our relationship with our environments, whether natural or created. Let’s dive in!

Workspaces are more than just a boring old desk and computer screen. It's a place where you spend most of your day (and night, amirite?), so why not make it a reflection of your unique style and personality? Don't settle for generic and uninspiring stuff. Let's add some attitude and flair!

Start with identifying your style. Are you all about that minimalist, sleek and modern look? Or do you prefer a more bohemian and eclectic vibe? Whatever your style is, let's own it and create a workspace that speaks to you. Personally, I like a hodge-podge! The juxtaposition of MCM and antique really speaks to me, especially when it’s a mix of hand-me-down and garage sale. (Ahem, Facebook Marketplace HERE. I. COME.)

Adding a pop of color may be a must when it comes to personalizing your workspace. Why settle for a dull and lifeless office when you can inject some vibrant colors and energy into the mix? Choose a color that represents your personality, and let it shine through your decor. Whether it's a bold accent wall, a funky piece of art, or a statement rug, adding some color can work wonders on your mood and productivity.

Accessories are KEY to a personalized workspace. We're talking about desk accessories that reflect your personality, such as a quirky mug, a cool lamp, or a cute plant. It's the little things that make a big difference, and these personal touches can help create a comfortable and inviting environment. Let’s represent you, your family, and what you believe in!

Don't be afraid to show off your interests and hobbies. Your workspace is your own personal space, so let's make it reflect who YOU are. If you love art, why not display some of your favorite pieces on the wall? You know, the ones that really speak to you! If you're a music lover, incorporate your instruments into your decor. Whatever your passion is, let's make it a part of your workspace.

Of course, personalizing a workspace isn't just about style, it's also about functionality. Form follows function! A desk should be comfortable, and you should have everything you need within arm's reach. Invest in a quality chair and make sure your desk is at the right height. Obvi, don't forget about storage solutions to keep your workspace organized and clutter-free. Ya heard, Marie Kondo?

And, who says creating a personalized workspace has to break the bank? I’m the (self-proclaimed) queen of budget-friendly home makeovers! I swapped my “corner cubicle” for the “office with a window” for $0 - By repurposing my old desk into a credenza, selling some chairs for a new-to-me desk, and hanging a shelf (that’s been in the garage for 4 years), I’ll have a cohesive and stylish space in no time! PS - Because I don’t know when to quit, I’ll be adding a few more pieces (Thanks, Facebook!)

So, there you have it! It's time to step up your workspace game and make it a reflection of your personal style and attitude. Let's add some color, accessories, and personal touches to create a comfortable and inspiring environment that motivates you to do your best work…WORK, WORK, WORK, WORK.
