12 Home Offices You’ll Want To Work In All Day

INSPIRATION

Although the trappings of modern life might allow us to work from anywhere in the home—the sofa, the armchair, curled up under the covers in bed—there’s nothing quite like having a dedicated home office. Whether you’re writing the next great American novel, doing your bookkeeping, or just updating your Twitter feed with yet another video of hamsters eating things, a home office is the best way to stay energized and focused on the task at hand. A work room of your own is great, but not essential.

Great home offices can be inserted into bedrooms, kitchens, and even that awkwardly-shaped nook in your hallway. If getting some ace office decorating ideas is on your agenda, we’ve got fifteen beautiful office looks to get you started. For more inspiration, check out this blog post and our Hamptons home office design.
