3 Decorating Tips for when You're Sick of your Home Office
I don't know if this has ever happened to you, but you come home and find you can't stand a certain part of your house anymore.

How to fit a workout into your daily schedule when you work from home
It’s Springtime! AKA time to get ready for bikini season! But bikini shopping gets stressful when you cannot find the perfect one because: 1) Today’s lunch consisted of a giant burger and food babies are real, 2) The lighting is horrible most changing rooms, 3) Let’s be honest, we are still getting over grandma’s delicious Christmas dinner, and 4) We’ve been wearing oversized sweaters all winter so wearing tiny fabric on our bodies that barely cover anything is a step out of our comfort zones.
The Best Plants for Office Sprucing
Does your office need a little sprucing? Plants can do the trick. Some green here and there can make the difference when it comes to unique decorations for an office environment. Decorative plants have been around for a while but live plants do not only enhance the overall appearance of an office but also reduce stress and eliminate air pollutants. There’s nothing unpleasant about plants! Watering them would be your only task (unless your aesthetic goal is brown instead of green) but the best plants for an office are those requiring minimal care.
Four steps you should add to your morning routine when working from home
I’m personally not a morning person and while coffee is a lifesaver, it’s not always ideal to have to rely on it all day. But just because someone isn’t a morning lover, just an early riser (busy day ahead, no time for sleeping in), it doesn’t mean that they can’t wake up singing with joy! These are some tips to make the early hours easier and, ideally, give you a kick-start to a productive day.

With the first quarter of 2016 coming to an end, this marks the time when we are forgetting our two-page long New Year’s resolutions list.

The Home Office Slump and What to do about it
There comes a time in every home office workers day where you just can't do anymore work. Your brain is fried, you're tired and your pajamas are stained with your breakfast/lunch/snacks. You know what I'm talking about, it's typically on the days where you have deadlines to meet and can't function fully as a human being haha. For everyone it hits at a different time but most people it happens around 2 PM and it can be rough. Anything you do after this slump seems to be below par work or you end up checking Facebook 900 times instead of actual work.

I am all about having inspirational images in front of you. Not the cheesy kind you see in 80's movies but the kind that inspire everyone a little differently.

Stress is something every single person on the planet has to deal with and especially those who own their own business. I realized that it's not just work stress that effects me while I'm working but personal stress as well.

3 Luxurious Desks that Won't Break the Bank
When I first started TheOfficeStylist.com a very common question how much someone would need to spend on their desk. Or how much someone should be spending on that is. The thing about furniture budgets is that there is no one size fits all. It's all relative to who you are, what your business does and where you are at financially. I still think that your desk should be the biggest investment in your home or commercial office space and with that comes a huge variety.

3 Signs you Should not be Working from Home
I've said it a million times but it's worth repeating: working from home is not for everyone. I love hearing the excitement from someone when they decide to go into business for themselves or their supervisor said they can work from home full time. It's exciting if you spent your whole life cooped up in a cubicle. I totally get it but sadly we are not all meant to work from home. My friend's husband for example, he knows he will get ZERO work done if he works from home. If he has too much on his plate, he will just stay at the office later rather than bring his work home with him. Not everyone knows they're just not meant to work from home so here are 3 signs it's not right for you.
Co Work from Home with a Friend: Tips + Tricks
Working from home can be amazing. You can wear your pajamas, work with your cat in your lap and pretty much do whatever you want when you want. But the downsides of working from home is that it can be SUPER lonely. Think about it, you spend 40 hours a week working from home, 5 days a week and then what? You probably cook dinner at home too so basically you end up never seeing another human.
How to Limit Distractions when Working from a Coffee Shop
We all have those moments where we just need to get out of the house. While working from home can be amazing, easy and super comfortable, sometimes we can get a bit of cabin fever. Like today when I just had to get out of my house and into a fancy coffee shop. I'm sitting here enjoying my latte and getting a ton of writing done which is just what I needed.
Why Pet Distractions Can be a Good Thing
Sometimes working from home with pets can be a major challenge. They get into stuff, break things, bark and sometimes just drive you crazy. While pets can drive you crazy and distract your workday, it can be a much needed break from your hectic day. Since studies have shown that animals help reduce our stress, I started to notice that having my cat near me while I work has helped.
What NOT to Wear When you Work from Home
It can be hard to put on real clothes when you work from home. I've been there during the times I worked from home 5 days a week. You don't see humans most of the time and your clients don't see you so why should you care? It's really easy to just roll out of bed in your pajamas and break out your laptop to start your day. Why even bother brushing your hair? Okay, am I describing a hot mess to you? That's exactly what this is haha. And that's exactly what I used to do until I realized it contributes to a list of bad habits I don't care to mention. Before you decide that dressing up at all is something you shouldn't care about when working from home, know that you should care. I'll get into the reasons in another article but today let's go over what you should NOT be wearing when you work from home.
Snacking All Day in Your Home Office Can be a Good Thing
You probably read the title of this article and already think I'm crazy. Well, I promise you that I'm not. I snack all day while I work and I lost 43 lbs last year doing this.

How to Re-Motivate Yourself After a Fun Weekend
I don't know if this ever happens to you but sometimes I come home after an awesome weekend and I'm just not in the mood to work. Whether it's a birthday party or just a sprinkling of a lot of plans all weekend long, I find it really hard sometimes to get back into the groove of things. Come Monday morning, the last thing I want to do sometimes is work. Getting through emails can be a chore and even when I try my hardest, sometimes it just won't work.

How to Pull off the Monochrome Trend in your Home Office
The monochrome trend is a new favorite of mine. I've always loved the simple black and white look but now that it's on trend, it's so much easier to find things to pull this look off. It's not for everyone, some people needs some color in their space but if this is your vibe, here are some tips to pull this off in your home office.
Small Space Furniture for your Home Office
It's important that no matter the size of your house/apartment/studio, that you have a designated workspace. Even if you work a 9-5, you still need an area that stays organized and is designated for work related tasks like paying the bills, managing the house and actual work. Years ago I found out about Heckler Design and have since recommended them to countless people. Their products are the perfect thing when you're low on space and when you need to have your furniture do double duty (multi-purpose).
3 Tips on Working from Home when You have Kids
One of the biggest challenges that people have when working from home is distractions. Whether it's your cat, neighbor or your laundry, there always seems to be something. Now factor kids into the equation and say goodbye to getting any work done! I hear it all the time from members of our co-working space in LA, they have a home office but even with hired help they can't focus with their kids there. Some people have babies and so when their baby is crying they can't help but want to go see what's happening. Or they have a 6 and 9 year old running all over the house, especially during school holidays. No matter what the situation is, it's helpful to know what you can do to get work done.
Inspirational Wall Decals for your Home Office
If there is one thing I really love to decorate with, it's wall decals. They're easy to install, easy to remove and you don't have to worry about not getting your deposit about after. I love a gorgeous splash of paint too but the hassle of having to paint things back is sometimes not worth it. Wall decals are also super budget friendly too, so yet another perk. The variety out there is large but instead of cheesy motivational posters in your office, try one of these awesome inspirational wall decals instead.

Acrylic Office Essentials to Make your Space Look Bigger
It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of acrylic (also know as lucite) products but especially when it comes to wanting your space to look bigger. Some people hate the look but the great thing about these products being clear is that they don't take up much visual space. Say you don't have much space for a workspace at home and you're worried your house will look cluttered. Opt for some acrylic pieces whether that's your actual desk, the chair you sit in or the accessories on your desk. Having clear products makes it seem like there isn't anything actually there which will help your space look bigger and less cluttered.
3 Products to Cat Proof your Home Office
There is nothing like being able to work from home with your cat in your lap. Or even just by your side all day while you punch away at a mile long to-do list. The comfort of having your cat there is amazing and not only that but a huge mid-day stress reliever. As amazing as it is to have your baby by your side, what's not amazing is having to stop your entire day because they got into something, ate something or broke something. It's why you really need to pet proof your home office and here are three products that help you do that.
How to Make your Office a Germ-Free Zone
Did you know that your desktop has more germs than a toilet? Sounds really gross right? Well, flu season is upon us and the last thing anyone wants to deal with right now is being sick.

Does your Home Office Need to Match the Rest of your House?
It’s hard enough as it is for people who don’t have a natural knack for design, to start making changes in their space. Add in that the entire house or every part of your office should be in the same design style-and hello “never going to happen” day! I get asked this question a LOT so I knew it was time to explain beyond just the one person. It’s a common misconception that all the rooms in your house or office need to match.

Should you care about what you wear when you work from home?
Something not a lot of people think about or address is what to wear when you work from home full time.

How to choose your office art-tips and tricks
What’s a room without a great piece of art? Your office should be no exception. I find it as necessary to the room as a desk is. Seriously! Art is not only a cornerstone of great design, it also adds texture, personality, and sophistication to a room, as well as serves as a great source of visual stimulation and inspiration.
How to Personalize Built Ins
Though they’re not as common in corporate office spaces (but that’s not to say they’re never there), the room you use as your home office could very likely have a built-in. For some, this is even more of a letdown since you usually have a bit more creative freedom in your home than in an externally owned space.

Feeling un-motivated working from home? Here are some tips to help
It happens to all of us at some point and for some of us, a lot of the time. You know the feeling, when you dread even turning on your computer to get down to work.

I've been there, we all have and especially when you work from home everyday.
Keep it simple
While you can get an intricate setup to display your record player, something simple like a stylish ottoman with a cool silhouette highlights the uniqueness of having a turntable in the first place.
Do it up
I don't think there's a more fabulous place to put a turntable than a well-styled bar cart.
Blend it in
A really cool way to display your turntable is to seamlessly integrate it into the rest of your design.

Gold is the ultimate accent color in any space. It brings an element of luxury, glamour and style to an otherwise dull office setting - literally.
Choose how much gold you want
It's easy to adjust just how much gilded glory you'd like in your office space.
Get out the spray paint
A couple coats of gold on the legs of your desk, chair, or even on shelf desk brackets are an awesome way to completely update an otherwise basic furniture piece.
If you're more a fan of the subtle approach, a super easy (and temporary) way of infusing gold into your space is by going in the accessories route.
2. Protect your electronics
Any kind of paint, glue or liquid medium has the ability to get onto your nearby electronics, even if you don't realize it. Since most people get project instructions online, having your iPad or computer around is pretty necessary.
1. Spray paint tricks

Summer weekends often mean a lot of home projects. But what lots of step-by-step instruction lists don't provide are some intuitive tips that make your crafting time much easier.

Here's one no one tells you when you buy some painter's tape: simply applying the tape to the wall isn't enough to ensure a completely clean line once you remove it after painting.
Consider your furniture
Unless you're planning on a complete office overhaul, you definitely have to think about what your existing furniture looks like.
Think of what kind of work you do
Paint color can easily dictate the mood of a room. Consider the type of work that you do in your office, as well as your general feelings while you're working.
Go with your gut
Hit up the paint aisle of your local home improvement store. In the area where all of the paint chips are, pick out the five that you're most drawn to.

How to make vintage pieces work in the office
Though you may not realize, vintage items totally have a place in the office as well; it just takes a little bit of creativity.

Step 3: Storage
Some desks have built in storage, while others don't. First, think about the volume of supplies you need to have readily available (not think you need to have), then choose your storage option based on that.
How to design the perfect desk
Hooray, you've finally made it out of the cubicle circuit and are moving up to the big desk life. I've figured out the the basic building blocks of the ideal desk that you can use to assemble your quintessential workplace setup.
Step 1: The Desk
Choosing a desk can be a challenge, but as long as you have a good understanding of your needs and working habits, it can actually be a fun task!
Keep the floors and ceiling light
Four dark walls and a matching inky floor are a recipe for the shoebox-type room you're trying to avoid. Keeping in mind the principle of balance, your floor should offset the shady effect of your paint color.
How to Make a Dark Office Work
While a lot of people like the look of a dark office, they find them too difficult to design. However, I've got some great, simple tips to follow for how to make a dark office work.
Allow a Lot of Light
Ideally, a dark office will have a lot of windows (or at least one large one) that will easily eliminate any dank or dungeon-vibes.
Choose a larger room
Because dark paint colors have a shrinking impact on rooms (whereas light colors do the opposite), make sure your office is a relatively decent size so you avoid the
Keep it casual
While dark offices exude an air of sophistication, they also have the tendency to come off as stuffy. While your instinct may be to go for wingback chairs and framed impressionist art, go for less
Perfect closet offices
If you've got a spare closet (or one that isn't being utilized to its fullest potential), it could make the perfect home to your office-away-from-the-office workspace.
Don't make it a multipurpose space
I totally get that closets in any kind of living arrangement are prime real estate, but a closet office should just be that - an office.
Got an awkward-sized wall cavity somewhere in your house or apartment that hasn't been used yet? Say hello to your new workspace!
Go for vertical storage
Since your horizontal space is likely limited, you'll have to make use of what's above.
Get a custom desk
Admittedly, it's pretty difficult to find a desk that matches your closet's dimensions exactly. Since you definitely want to take advantage of the limited wall-to-wall space you do have, a custom desk is your best bet.
When fancy magazine holders run around $15+ a pop, you've got to find an alternative solution. An old mailing box, a box cutter, and some fun wrapping paper do the same job as its expensive counterparts and cost a fraction of the price.
Organize your Electronic Cables
More often than not, my various electronic cords are a total mess. But have some old shoeboxes lying around that are just waiting for a new life? You're in luck!
Metal basket shelving
I love the open shelving idea that comes from simply drilling a few washers into the wall behind a wire basket.

How to pick the best desk for your office needs
When we're office furniture shopping, we have to consider our actual needs when it comes to picking out furniture. Desks are not one-size-fits-all, and trying to guess which one has everything we need is a feat in and of itself.
If your work is solely computer-based
If practically all of your work is done virtually, meaning you deal with the bare minimum of paper products, you could benefit from a simple Parsons desk.
If you split your work time
If your work time is split almost evenly between time on the computer and time writing, try to get a desk that allows you to isolate your digital and physical work.
If most of your work is on paper
If you work in a creative industry that involves a lot of paper in some regard, choose a desk with a clean shape, and most importantly, allows for storage to be seamlessly integrated.
If you work with multiple people
There are far more options nowadays for multi-worker desks than long, dining room table-style conference tables. Turnstone's Bivi collection is customizable and multi-configurable to allow for different office solutions.
How to create the perfect mood board
I believe that even the self-described least creative people can incorporate a mood board into their office's design scheme: it's all a matter of figuring out how to pick a style that works best for you.
The "everything" approach
The Everything method works for those who don't like to put a limit on their creativity.
The clipboard method
If your design style is a bit more straight-laced, you may prefer the order that comes from the well thought-out clipboard method to an inspiration board.
The strategic design approach
If you like the idea of a physical collage but aren't a fan of borderline-chaotic design choices, this one may be for you.
The "some of everything"
I find the
Decide how much of an investment it is
Trends are fickle by nature, meaning you shouldn't be spending the same amount on your temporary addition as your more permanent pieces. And just because something is cheap doesn't mean it's always worth it.
When it comes to bigger pieces, size and money wise, think about its longevity in terms of design and how much trouble it would be to change it later on.
Choose temporary accessories
To avoid limiting yourself, incorporate a fun new trend with
How to decide if a design trend is worth it
I have to have an ever-changing office decor - but that doesn't mean I do an office overhaul once I spot a new trend I like. Following some guidelines can ensure you have a trendy office without that looming guilty feeling that comes later.
Change the lighting
Simply changing the type of lightbulb in your desk lamp can really alter the mood of your office. Design wise, switch out your floor lamp for an overhead chandelier.
Add a focal point
Every well-designed space has a focal point, and offices are no exception. Once you figure out what that is in your office, figure out a way to highlight it, such as strategically placing lighting near an art piece.
Fast and Easy Office Updates
There are a ton of easy ways to change up your office that don't take up much of your precious time, and have still have a big impact on your space.
Add a rug
Rugs are the fastest and easiest way to cover up an unsightly floor, and when chose wisely, do a great job of highlighting your awesome design choices.
Get a new chair
Get a chair that makes a statement and makes you feel important, or even add a bold patterned pillow to jazz up your existing seat.
Change the Drawer Pulls
A fresh new (or vintage) set of drawer pulls can totally update any piece of office furniture right before your eyes.

Channel it in accessories
If you're a little hesitant about embarking on your first print adventure, accessories are a low-commitment way of bringing in some fun and visual interest.
Choose pillows for craziest prints
I adore leopard print, and it can be a quick way to elevate the look of any office space. However, despite its popularity, some people are under the impression that it's not professional enough for a workspace. Not so! Page 2.
If you're in love with a print, there's usually no reason you can't cover an entire wall in it - seriously! I like to think of feature walls as almost a design cheat since their simple presence does most of the decorating for you. Page 3.
Statement furniture in a space kind of works the way a statement necklace does on an otherwise basic outfit - it spices the whole thing up! Page 5.
Use it as an accent
While you can choose to make a print the center of your design scheme, patterns work equally well as accents to highlight your existing pieces. Page 4.
Make your personalization mobile by emulating your office's design scheme onto a clipboard that you can take into meetings to show off your awesome style.
Physical initials in metal or other materials are an awesome way to not only customize your space, but to also add some texture and dimension. Page 4.
Trace your initial on a piece of paper or canvas and glue puzzle pieces over the letter. Page 3.
Rethink your Monogram
Instead of having one decorative mug with your three initials, why not three mugs with one initial each? Page 5.
Go Subtle and Sophisticated
Go the the more sophisticated, artsier route by selecting an interesting graphic of your initial and framing it like it were any other art piece. Page 2.
Transform basic furniture pieces into office wonders
What if I told you that you can buy furniture that's within your budget that is also exactly what you want - you just have to be willing to roll up your sleeves?
Keep colors solid
Clutter in and of itself is busy, so you should be counting it as a print or pattern when you're decorating. Page 4.
Keep it contained
The best way to create manageable clutter is to create a clear, designated area for where it belongs. Page 3.
Keep it vertical
Sometimes, all you really need to feel that sense of comfort is the visual aspect of clutter.
Keep surfaces clear
The biggest problem with clutter is that it can interfere with our ability to get our work done, since it's taking up our actual workspace. Page 2.
Don't clean up: How to keep some clutter in the office
If you're like most people, you probably have a corner of your office that contains some degree of clutter.
