Home Office Inspiration

The past few months have been difficult and joyous at the same time.  Both Thea and I have full-time jobs, where we try and juggle newly-married-life and blogging.  But we find peace in knowing that one day we will be where we need to be if we carry on pushing the limits and reaching for the stars.  We both have a dream in our hearts and hopefully some day soon we will be able to make it a reality.  But we are prepared for taking baby steps.  Thanking God all the way for the great opportunities, dreams and people he places on our paths.  In the end we all just want to do what we love, don’t we?

So hence this post.  I dream of the day I can decorate and work from my home-office.  I love light and bright spaces, filled with plants that bring life and energy into a room.  I love clever little organization hacks and motivational sayings against the walls.  I know the scandi trend is moving a bit off the radar, but I have always loved whites, greys and neutral colors.

Which bring me to my first inspiration. (Thanks Pinterest for making my life so much easier)

  1. Light & Bright with earthy elements

This office – apart from the desk being a teensy weensy small – is such a stunning space.  Love the chair, love the plant and love how the big windows not only has a great view but fills the office with natural light.  Often office spaces can feel cold and uninviting, which is the exact opposite you want in a space where you need to work all day long. That is why this space is so perfectly put together.  It includes warm wood tones with an industrial desk and a very modern white Eames armchair – which is really comfortable!

2. Clean and Clear

What I love about this office is that it’s not pretentious.  You know when you sit down here you need to get down to business and work!  Nothing that will take you attention off that fact.  I love the cleanliness, and the cool and calm feeling you get looking at this space.  Adding a touch of green that makes the space come alive.
