Home offices can be small, but that shouldn't stop you from keeping it stylish and organized. Here are some great tips from Style at Home's Associate Design Editor Tamara Robbins.
1 Don't limit yourself to utilitarian storage boxes; consider ones made of luxe materials such as horn, ceramic or wood.
2 Clear glass is a decorator's secret weapon. Stashing supplies in glass vases, jars or canisters keeps them orderly and easy to find.
3 Many people spend as much time, if not more, in their home office as in the kitchen or family room, so make it a cosy and homey place to work by adding artwork, beautiful accessories and flowers -- they'll make you feel better when paying the bills!
4 Seek inspiration wherever you can. Even a notebook offer the perfect colour palette for a home office and can set a make over in motion. Keep your eyes open for colours and patterns you love.
5 Turn trash into treasure. You don't need a huge budget for a dramatic change. Your furniture may not be glamorous, but it's functional -- you may not need to buy a new desk. A professionally sprayed-on cream-colour paint can make the furniture look clean and new.
