Since a lot of people are working from home right now, I wanted to share my home office decor with you all for some inspiration! I work from home regardless of covid-19 since I am self-employed, so I know how important it is to have a designated work area and enjoy the space that you are working in. I am fortunate enough to have a spare bedroom that I turned into an office, but you can definitely decorate a smaller space just as well.
I wanted my office to have a Harry Potter theme (Slytherin in particular), so I painted the walls a dark green and incorporated dark woods and faux leather. I decided to accent with gold even though this isn’t a Slytherin color just because I like how it pulls everything together.
I also use my desk as a beauty station, so having a cute Harry Potter-themed mirror was essential! I use clear drawer organizers to keep my makeup sorted and easy to find. I also love this planner – it’s so cute and makes it easy to stay organized with all the projects I have going on.
I wanted to display my 5k medals and my social sports ‘trophies’ so I got a floating shelf and stained it to match the other wood items in the room. This was a fun little craft project to keep me busy while stuck at home.
Another DIY project I did was putting gold wallpaper on my closet doors. I bought one roll from Target and it wasn’t quite enough, so I ended up making one door striped, but I actually really like how it turned out!
Decorating your home office is a great way to spend some of your time while under lockdown that you will be able to enjoy for years to come. I feel a lot more productive in an environment that is aesthetically pleasing and comfortable!
