[home] office inspiration


(via decor 8)
It has been a hectic week and I feel like I haven't had a moment of rest. I am really wishing that I could just work from home today to catch up on life and hang out with my dogs. However to actually stay focused at home I think I would need an amazing home office and any one of these would do just fine!

Do you work from home? If so, any tips on staying focused? Alright, have a great day. I am off to grab a coffee and then of to the office.

Yep, I need to make a clean sweep.

My desk has to sit perpendicular to the window, with the wall behind me.
I live on a busy street. I get to watch all the joggers go by and write by the northern light.

Old Feng-Shui thing about having your back secure, and being able to see who's coming.

Delightful little work spaces!
I do work from home and you can visit my blog too....;)
Sometimes I take a turn in the garden to get some fresh air. Sometimes all you need is a little break or a friendly chat with someone unrelated to work.
Don't be to hard on you, we all need a moment here and there.
I am new here, but love what I see...

love the first one, with that door open to the garden! I do work from home and I love it! I like to take a break to water the plants and grass!

OMG the first image has my heart. Open to the outdoors is perfect! Now that is an office I could get some work done in. I think I would have a better quality of work and feel happier.

If only....one day when I grow up :)

I love the white office on the top with the splashes of color! That pink sign looks perfect in there!

I love.love.love the first office! White with lots of colours is just my style. I don't work from home, but if I did I can just imagine it would be a lot tougher staying focused.

Great post, Blair.

These are great! Love that little nook with the drafting table. I could work all day there. Well maybe. :)

That last office - dying! Where is it from?!

I so know how you feel. Work and school this week have been long and working from home is just so much better. But, it can be easier to get distracted...I agree :) I love the last image.

Adriana said...

you were right about us being on the same page, we're clever :) I love the third and fourth one...being in a creative industry, for me, it's important to have a desk with a view of the outside world. inspiring and motivating

Looking at these photos really makes me wish of bringing my office in my home. I really want it because I am more productive when I am at home.

PS~Erin said...

big issue for me! Of course if I had one of these office spaces, I'm *sure* I'd have no problem...

i do not work from home, unless you count my crafting at night. i wish i could work from home during the day. definitely think i would have trouble staying focused though.

Jessica said...

Wonderful! I do work from home and have tried to make my office/art studio a place I really want to be but even so it is extremely easy for me to get distracted. I seem to work best in the late hours of the night, I think due to there being less to distract me. I love John Derian's work table, that's very close to how mine looks(I'm also a decoupage artist). Nice blog!
