Office Space Inspiration

First, let me start this post off by saying, I have some super exciting things coming up in the life of Comfortable Spaces over the next month that I can not wait to roll out to y'all!! Next let me say, I'm not in the position to announce any of it yet, but prepare yourselves because it is going to be awesome!

So with that thought lingering out there, I needed to take my extra clutter loving space (that I refer to as "my room" because it holds all my excess crap) and actually make something out of it. Originally the thought was for it to be a dressing room, and for the most part that is what it has been. But it's time for the space to finally transform into an office so I can get some real work done up there. 

Whenever I begin dreaming up a space I head on over to the dream center...that's right, you guessed it! Pinterest!! I always know in my brain how I want a space to convey it's personality, but Pinterest always gives me a little extra something that adds a bit of special inspiration.


But let's start with the basics. First I need to know what I am looking for in a space. For me it is light colors, soft lines, and a cozy feel. This is the basic pattern I like to use in all of my room decorating. This is how I achieve my comfortable feel and design.

Here are some paint choices that I am seriously in love with! Muted, neutral tones are definitely my style. I find that the more relaxed the paint color, the more fun you can have with the decor, without the room starting to feel extremely weighed down.

Let's talk soft lines for a second. I adore this space created by Bre from Rooms for Rent (I love her design style btw...ya'll need to check her out!). The desk itself has a softness in the rounding of the corners, down to the spindles of the legs. There are round jars on the top of her desk for her flowers and storage, even the fun wood piece closest to the ceiling has a rounded softness to it. Finish that off with the cool linen of her chair and curtains, and you have one beautifully soft office nock.

When we are talking cozy, I love to choose furniture that is extra plush and comfortable. The easiest way to then make it super snuggly is to drape a blanket over it. If I'm being honest, I rarely ever work on the computer without a soft blanket wrapped around me. I just love the cozy feel of it!


Moving past the basics of design, I love elements such as unique bookcases, large tables for desks, and the overall farmhouse feel. Here are some of my absolute fav pinspirations when it comes to my office remodel.

I simply can not wait to begin redesigning my office space! Especially after looking through these amazing design ideas. There are little odds and ends that I loved in each photo and will definitely be incorporating some of those thoughts into my own space. I love how creative decorating can be. There is no greater thrill than having the ability to dream up a space and then bring it to life!


What are some of your favorite design choices? Do you enjoy softer lines or harder edges? The beauty about design is that you can make your space completely your own! I would love to hear about some of your favorite design choices in your home!
