When people go to work or work form home, it at times actually creates tension and pressure. When I worked in retail, every single day required focused and some pressure to get results. I really wanted to leave that environment and when I got the opportunity to work from home with an an amazing up and coming tech company I took it.
First, I was excited to work from home and leave that stress behind. Well…I was wrong and I realized working at the kitchen table was not working. I needed an office space so I can separate my work and home life. So I worked on that…
Now, within my newly installed closet room, I had space for an office space. I decided create a soothing work are for myself.
Here’s what it took to create a safe haven space for me to work:
- Went with White & Gold color story – Yes white, white to me represents clean, crisp and open. I wanted all of the pieces in the space to be simple and elegant at the same time. I view gold as a elegant color and it is also one of my favorite colors that I use throughout my home. My closet door handles were gold so continuing that into the office space was key.
- Desk with no drawers – to stay organized I feel you need a desk with no drawers. It will force you to know what you have at all times and to not clutter up your desk. This is mentally great for me because when I walk into my work space it is 9/10 times clean already.
- Comfy Office Chair – This sounds so easy but its a step many people do not take the time to search for. I have an amazing leather white chair that is comfy and I am able to sit in it for hours. It is from Amazon and I looked at measurements and ratings to ensure this was the perfect fit for me and my back.
- Gold accessories – I actually cheated here a bit. I used an old set of poppin office collection from The Container Store and spray painted it gold. It matched my white & gold desk beautifully and just made the entire office space come together.
I am now more productive at home with my office space and being able to separate home life and work life under the same roof is so fulfilling for me. Share your office space below in the comments?
