Your Home Office

Now that summer is “officially over” it is time to concentrate on you (the small business owner) before the holidays are upon us.

Those who work from home, like me, spend countless hours working in their home office. Why oh why, therefore, are so many home offices dull, lifeless places that you wouldn't want to spend 10 minutes, let alone 10 hours a day. Your office should be an extension of you, a place of your own, where you create, where you feel inspired….

I would start out with color; if your office is adjacent to other rooms in the house it is very important that you have complimentary colors to the other rooms…. For an example… the grays are really hot right now ( I believe there are 50 shades)….If you're “living room was in the red family and your kitchen was in the green family and both were off of your office area…you would have a solid good choice with the color grey…you can always revert to a color wheel if you are having issues…but you must make sure the colors are the same saturation. If you are still not sure, you can always call Harmonizing Homes.

If you have the available space in your home office, I would recommend a couch…which would be proportionate to the office size. Pieces of your favorite art…painting, sculpture etc.  Layer’s your look by using rugs, throws, a chandelier, mirrors….music is a great addition to an office for some background noise.  I have included some great inspirations.. ( on right )I hope you enjoy!
