Inspiring Cozy Office Decoration – Work in Office that feels like home

Simply showing up for work every day does not necessarily ensure one’s productivity. Feeling comfortable and happy at the workplace matters just as much as having the right equipment to get the job done. Big companies are investing a lot in the work environment and the wellbeing of their employees and you should do the same for you if you’re working from home or if you simply have a home office for casual, everyday tasks. In this case the office decor is more important than ever so let’s see a few of the styles and options that you could adopt.

It’s always great to find inspiration in nature and in your immediate surroundings when decorating a space, especially one with a view. If your office has large windows you could leave them exposed and bring some of the outdoor colors inside. Perhaps a mix of green and blue would be to your liking. An inspiring example in this sense can be found on Amy Studebaker Design.

In a small office it’s usually good to avoid too many colors as it can make the space seem even tinier and quite cluttered. Consider white walls, a white ceiling and one or two accent colors combined with simple furniture and decorations. Once again, Andria Fromm can be a source of inspiration.

A lot of the office decor ideas that you probably have in mind most likely include some sort of storage for all the things that have to be kept in the room. Open shelves or a combination of shelves on top and closed cabinets at the bottom usually works out great in office no matter what the style is. If you like this particular display, check out Eileen Deschapelles for more details.

In a small office you don’t really want the desk to occupy the whole room. At the same time you require a large work surface and plenty of storage. That can be achieves with a wall-mounted desk, perhaps even a corner one in combination with wall-mounted cabinets or shelves above it.

Every room needs a focal point and the office is no different. A very nice idea which comes from West Haddon Hall is to take the attention away from the desk and other work-related elements and to put the focus on a beautiful piece of art. You could also turn the light fixtures into focal points or use a nice view to your advantage.

If you’re decorating your own home office, you should make it look and feel like home. A nice idea can be to use a table instead of a computer desk and to add storage in the form of a media center-like unit. Check how this stylish and modern office setup featured on Ae Design. Isn’t it exquisite?

Dark colors are nothing to be intimidated by. It’s true that many of us avoid using black in interior design because they thing the color makes spaces appear small and gloomy. However, that’s just a misconception and in reality black can actually make a space look and feel welcoming, warm and comfortable. You can use this to your advantage when planning your office decor.

Another very efficient way of making an office decor look warm and welcoming is by using plenty of wood and taking advantage of its natural warmth, beautiful texture and even its color. This office decor done by ONG&ONG definitely knows how to do all that.

If you’re decorating a shared office like the one designed by mck architects, you have to plan the layout and everything else accordingly. Instead of separate desks a nice way to keep things simple is to have a single, shelf-like desk which can accommodate several workstations. It’s a strategy which works well both for home offices and professional, corporate ones.

Having sufficient natural light is very important, especially when working in an office. That’s why desks should be in front of windows if and whenever possible. This full-height windows bring in more than just light as it also offers a wonderful view and provides a stunning backdrop for this office designed by Gregory Phillips Architects.

This office created by Matt Garcia Design for a house from Austin is not just spacious and stylish but also very well organized. The long, shared desk is facing the large windows and the stations are separated by storage cubbies. There’s also a bigger storage area at the end of the room. A particular cool and interesting detail in this case is the color of the furniture. It’s sort of neutral but sort of warm and pink at the same time.

The search for the perfect desk can be very long and tedious. When you finally find it everything falls into place and the entire office decor starts to make sense. That is, of course, if you planned everything right. Perhaps this chic setup from thefancythings can serve as a source of inspiration. Notice how pretty much everything in the room suits the whole golden color scheme.

If you have the space, perhaps it would be nice to add a cozy window nook to your office. It can be a nice relaxing place to unwind, take a break and look out the window, read or even work on your laptop. This office gives you an idea of how you can make the space even cozier using other means. We love the rustic look of the furniture, the neutral colors and the attention to detail.

In a lot of cases, the home office is actually a multi-purpose space. If you don’t want to or don’t have the space to create a separate office room, the space could double as a guest bedroom. A Murphy bed would be a perfect fit in this case. Of course, if we consider this closet office idea, the possibilities are actually more numerous and you could easily integrate the workspace into the living room or to put it on a large hallway.

Wonderful Landscape for your backyard with stone steps material

  1. I simply love how stone steps feel underfoot, don’t you? There’s nothing like it. We’ve rarely seen stone staircases being built inside the house although there are a few very interesting examples. Most often than not, stone steps are a part of backyard landscapes and we can’t wait to show you the amazing ideas we gathered over the past few days. We strongly believe that these ideas can inspire you to give you your own backyard or garden a makeover in the future and to include stone steps into the design so let’s check them out.

One of the things we love most about stone stairs is their timeless look. They look as if they’re a part of the landscape, as if they’ve been there since the beginning of time, shaped by the wind and water. In this particular case the backyard rocks strategically placed at the base and alongside the stairs emphasize this beauty even more. This was all done by Capitol Hardscapes.

The key to making stone steps look natural is to take advantage of their imperfections and making the most of this material and its unique characteristics. This can be done without compromising the integrity and safety of each step, as exemplified here by CLC Landscape Design. 

Stone can be used for much more than just stairs. You can build walls, benches and an entire patio out of stone slabs. The stairs can be seamlessly built into design and there are many ways in which this can be done. One example is this landscape designed by Green Solutions, Inc.. 

Check out how beautiful this design created by Studio 342 Landscape Architecture is. The stone steps seamlessly transition into a walkway. The stone’s irregular edges and uneven coloring transition into perfectly flat, rectangular concrete slabs aligned along the edge of the raised flower beds. 

Stone stairs and rustic houses go hand in hand, especially when there’s also a beautiful garden to complete the picture. An inspiring example is this patio makeover project completed by I-Design Landscape. 

The stone stairs look exceptionally natural and timeless in this particular landscape envisioned by Larkspur Design for a residence in Manchester. Stone was used not just for the stairs but to shape the landscape and to define pathways.

Stone stairs like the ones created here by AspenFalls Custom Design and Landscape play an important role in defining the aesthetic of the entire setup. Their texture, irregular shapes and surfaces and unique coloring are in harmony with the surroundings and that’s extremely important. 

Stone stairs make a lot of sense when the house they complement also has exterior walls made of stone. It’s always very satisfying to use stone to build not just a few steps in the garden but also raised flower beds, fences and other features.

We love the look of stone stairs made of irregular, uneven slabs. They look more natural and more authentic this way. The fact that no two slabs are alike doesn’t make the stairs imperfect but gives each one character and uniqueness. This example by Zone4 Landscapes is a reflection of all those details.

The fact that stone steps are usually this irregular and asymmetrical in a way makes landscaping easier and offers more freedom. The pathways don’t have to be perfectly straight and that makes it easier to design a landscape which suits the land.

Check out this awesome water feature and those beautiful stone stairs that look like they’ve been on this site since forever. It’s cool that they’re darker than the stone around them and that they’re smooth, like they’ve been shaped by water. This was a project done by Stout Design-Build. 

As you can see, stone stairs have a lot of character and have the advantage of being able to blend into the landscape in a unique and seamless manner. This is true regardless of the season and the colors surrounding the stairs. Stone, as it turns out, is extremely versatile.
