6 Items You Need To Create The Perfect Creative Home Office

 

Whether you work from home, out of home, or mix and match, a home office is a truly exciting space to create. Even if it’s under the stairs, a fold out desk in the hallway or combined with the spare bedroom, you should treat your home office like your creative sanctuary. Whatever work you’re conjuring up in this space, enhance it. Granted, there are more than 6 items you need to create a perfect creative home office, but if we absolutely had to choose and prioritise then this is what we’d go for.

Styling a desk is a lot of fun. Jennifer Fisher’s office below has got to be a favourite look for me. Let’s face it, creatives like us don’t do minimal. Desk trinkets, coffee table books, statement lighting, mood boards are all welcome. And a golden pig? Sure. Even if this style looks effortless (it is) there are key items that are necessary to create the perfect creative home office.

1. Statement Lighting

Choose an overhanging pendant that knocks the socks off anyone lucky enough to step in to your office. A unique desk lamp  is also a must.

2. Desk Trinkets

Unless you’re a complete minimalist, (if you are you probably wouldn’t be here) styling beautiful accessories on your desk will keep you inspired every day. This won’t distract you because in my eyes it’s not clutter. If I don’t have these things around me then the day can feel a little empty.  This desk masters this wonderfully:

A stylish throne is necessary. Say goodbye to bog standard office chairs. We love this dusky pink velvet chair, ideal for getting you through a long day. An affordable treat for your derriere.

4. Art

Filling your office with your favourite art is hugely beneficial to day to day well being. Create a gallery wall or choose a giant piece of art to hang next to your desk.

5. Desk

The more eclectic the desk the better. Find an antique desk or pimp up an Ikea one to save dosh.

6. Plants

It’s a well known fact that plants and nature enhance productivity. Plants can help create the perfect creative home office vibe. When you can’t get outdoors bring it in like this gorgeous office above. The bigger the better we say, but no harm in a small one on your desk.
