Creating Intention in Your Home Office

Most of us are working from home more than we have in the past. For others maybe you have always worked from home (like us) but you are noticing that your working space does not have the care put into it that you pour into other areas of your home. I am definitely impacted by my surroundings and when my space feels cluttered, haphazard or lacking in inspiration…my motivation and quality of work can go down too.

I recently shared my Top Ten Tips for Creating a Cozy and Authentic Home and you will see that even in my office space I incorporate those 10 tips.  You will see vintage incorporated throughout (my table, books, art), original art (paintings, signs, sculpture, pottery), time (I have allowed this space to evolve and I am sharing the space even without everything being completed like the new tiles going in later this month), using beauty (in the pottery that holds my pencils, the cups I use and the journals I made), nature (bowls of beach treasures, the feather and sage, branches from our yard), comfort (the lambskin on the chair), lighting (overhead and also through candles), sounds and smells (the Ash candle from Jenni Kayne), textures and layers (the vintage rug and lambskin) and incorporating YOU (my art journals, watercolors, art books, beach treasures).

Does your space inspire you? What can you pull from other areas of the home to make your space more organized and to help you use more beauty in your day to day? I can spend a lot of time here each day so it is honoring to me, my work and my productivity to be intentional about this space.

What kind of work space to you have and what tips do you have to share? I would love to hear how you are using your office space at this time.  I have also included a short video below to see my little nook and where it is in our home.

    Love how you know precisely what is / isn’t your style and you use it across every platform and area of your home and business. To me, knowing ourselves, honoring the look that is us instead of copying others is one of the keys to both contentment and comfort and artistic success. Modeling that is a great gift.

    I’ve been pushed to ignore this wisdom and sometimes caved to that pressure but in the last few years recognized it’s foolish and gone back to “just be who you were created to be and enjoy that fully” and it’s a strategy that works.
