5 tips for organizing a home office

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.
