Do you have a home office? In our previous home, we rarely used our small second bedroom for guests, so we ultimately nixed the old futon for a pink pint-sized studio. I loved that space so much, and when we moved into our current home, I realized how important it was for me – for us! – to have a conducive, creative place to work. A place to open my laptop, clock out at 5 and turn a blind eye in the evenings. Scott and I both work from home, and over the years, our office has seen updates that allow us to focus on work in a joyful, peaceful environment – and man, finding every last piece to create a happy workspace has taken years.
All this to say, we don’t think of a home office – the study, the homework station, the corner you’ve carved out for a petite desk and bookcase – as an afterthought. But to get it to a productive starting point, we think it has to inspire. It has to have a system for your files and your pens and your rolls of Scotch tape. Systems that make sense! It needs a place for everything with everything in its place. So in today’s home essential guide, we’ve rounded up the necessities you need to make that happen, all while looking good doing it!
