3. Natural Lighting (Open Windows Rule!):
Let’s be real – working in a windowless dungeon is nobody’s idea of a creative paradise. Say yes to natural light whenever you can. Place your home office in a room with at least one window, and let the sunshine dance with your productivity. Trust us; it beats fluorescent lighting any day. Bonus points for enjoying the serenade of birds on a beautiful day. But we all know, at least here in the Midwest, cloudy days come around now and again and when they do task lighting and table lamps may be needed. So when they are, make it cute! This is also a chance to infuse some personality and color into your WFH haven.
Sunshine Infusion Tips:
Window Priority: Claim that window spot like it’s the last cookie in the jar. Natural light is your secret weapon against the drudgery of artificial lighting.
Lighting we love:
4. Playful Artwork that Speaks to Your Soul:
Just because you’re adulting doesn’t mean your office can’t be a playground. Inject some personality into your space with artwork that makes you smile. Frame your kid’s latest masterpiece or create a gallery wall showcasing your eclectic tastes. Your office should reflect you, not the latest office supply catalog. Support your local artists and artisans by browsing markets and galleries, or Etsy of course.
Artistic Expression Hack:
- DIY Gallery Wall: Mix and match pieces that tell your story. From travel mementos to quirky finds, let your walls be a canvas of your life’s adventures.
Fill those walls, to compliment your own storied collection:
You’ve got to show it off!
5. Vibrant House Plants that Breathe Life Into Your Space:
Let’s bring a slice of the outdoors inside, shall we? Working on a beautiful summer day doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the company of plants. They’re not just decor; they’re your green co-workers, silently cheering you on. If natural light is your office companion, consider lively choices like alocasia, pothos, or philodendron. No window? No problem – snake plants, dracaena, and ponytail palms thrive in indoor shade.
Green Oasis Wisdom:
- Summer Greenery: Make your office a jungle escape during summer. The more plants, the merrier – just don’t let them stage a rebellion.
