Summer ideas for your Home Office Work Space

With summer well underway, many of us find that re-designing and organizing our home office space is a great way to get a jump on the commitments that will inevitably come with the arrival of Fall. No matter how lovely your work space might be, it seems we all hit a point where a fresh and exciting new look is in order!

It goes without saying that  your home work space should be comfortable, effective and organized, but it should also be inspiring. The space where you accomplish all the things necessary to run a home, keep up with family and friends, plan your travels, follow up on your finances, volunteer your time and manage all correspondence and engagements, is an essential part of your life and home.

Think of your color palette; soothing tones help inspire clarity and focus instead of creating a distraction. Consider access to natural light which automatically boosts creativity and increases focus; and don’t forget to add sufficient task lighting.

Ample and smart storage solutions are a prerequisite to keeping everything neat and tidy. We should never underestimate how much orderliness and organization can add to our productivity.

Appropriate seating is the key to comfort and small indulgences such as fresh flowers, your favorite candle, or a small box of chocolates can help entice you to spend more time thriving at your desk.
