Nowadays, many people are working from home, so it’s important to create a comfortable and aesthetically pleasing workspace. A well-designed home office can increase productivity, creativity, and motivation. In this blog post, we will discuss some tips on how to set up an aesthetic home office that inspires you to work efficiently and I’ll share everything you need to create a beautiful home office.
Choosing the Right Colours
Choosing the right colours is crucial when designing a home office. Colours can affect our mood and productivity, so it’s essential to choose a colour palette that suits your personality and work style.
Neutral colours are a popular choice for home offices, as they create a calming and serene environment. Shades of blue and green are also good options, as they promote focus and concentration. However, if you prefer bold and vibrant colours, you can add pops of colour through accessories such as pillows, curtains, or artwork. Ask yourself: how do I want to feel in my home office space? From there, consider the colours that will best create that feeling for you.
I’m often asked what colour my home office is (pictured above) and the colour is Ethereal Mood by Sherwin Williams. In my opinion, it’s the perfect sage green. It’s soft and subtle and brings a warmth to the space.

When selecting furniture for your home office, it’s important to choose pieces that are functional and comfortable. A comfortable chair with good back support and adjustable height is essential to prevent back pain and discomfort. A spacious desk with ample storage is also important to keep your workspace organized and clutter-free. You can even consider investing in a standing desk, which can help improve posture and reduce the risk of health problems associated with prolonged sitting.
Home Office Desks
White Frame With Oak Top – 55 Inches
If you’re looking for a neutral desk, consider this white frame option with the oak top. This one actually comes in a bunch of different sizes and configurations – from a 32 inches to L-shaped.
Home Office Computer Desk With Storage – 43 Inches
For small in home office ideas, something like this might be a great one to choose! When working with a smaller space, utilize vertical storage as wall space may be more limited.
L-Shaped Walnut Desk With Built In Bookshelves
I’m someone who likes to spread out while I work and this L-shaped desk would give so much working area. I also like that it has the built in bookshelves, as I like to keep resources close by.
JV Home Papillon Collection Desk – 55 Inches
This desk is so unique, I haven’t seen one like it before! It also comes in an all-white option, if that’s your jam!
Electronic Adjustable Standing Desk – 55 Inches
As I mentioned above, standing desks are a great option if you spend your days sitting and working. I like that it’s adjustable so you can choose when to sit and when to stand. This one also comes in a few different colours!
Mr. Ironstone L-Shaped Desk
While this desk is l-shaped, it’s also on the smaller side. So depending on the space you’re working with and the style of desktop you prefer, this might be a really good option!
Computer Desk – 47 Inches
Of all the desks I’ve shared, this one is the most budget friendly. So if you’re looking for something on the more affordable side, consider this one! It also comes in all black.
Home Office Chairs
Mid-Back White Leather Executive Swivel Chair with Gold Frame and Arms
This is the chair I have in my office (pictured above) and I really like it! After years of working out of a desk chair with no back support, this felt like a major upgrade! I also think it’s very pretty and makes the room feel complete.
Mid-Back Black Leather Executive Swivel Chair with Rose Gold Frame and Arms
This one is the same as the above but in a beautiful black leather with a rose gold frame. So beautiful!
Modern Style White High-Back Office Chair
If you prefer an office chair with a high back, this is a beautiful option! This would go so well in any modern office space!
Flash Furniture Mid-Back Tan Mesh Swivel Ergonomic Task Office Chair
This office chair is a fabric option, if that’s your preference. It also has arms that are able to be flipped up, if you’re someone who likes to have a bit more space.
Ergonomic and Breathable Mesh Desk Chair
Similar style to the above office chair but this one is in a more neutral colourway.
Modway Mid Back Office Chair, Brown
I’m a lover of tan leather, so the colour of this chair is really selling me on this option.
Office Task Chair, Low Back
If you prefer to work in a chair with no arm rests, this is such a stunner! That rich leather colouring is giving me all the heart eyes.
Hbada Ergonomic Office Chair
This chair is made with a breathable mesh fabric and has arms that are adjustable. It also comes in a few different colours (but I love this neutral option!).
OSP Home Furnishings FL Series Mid-Back Faux Leather Office Desk Chair with Gold Finish, Cream
This chair is a higher price point but woah, is it ever beautiful! The plush seat looks like a cloud and I love the detailing of the rounded arms. If you’re planning to splurge a bit, I think this would make a great choice!
Home Office Storage
8 Tier Tree Bookshelf
Not going to lie, I want this bookshelf. I think it’s so pretty and unique and I love the size of it! It comes in a few different colours but I love this walnut tone.
Tree-Shaped Bookcase with 13 Storage Shelves
Another really cool shape for a bookshelf! This one would work well in an office but also in so many other spots in a home (kid’s room, living room).
4-Tier Ladder Shelf
Tiered shelves are fun to style! I like to put baskets or boxes on the bottom to store items you’d rather tuck away and then I use the top couple of shelves more for styling and decor.
Bamboo 4-Tier Multifunctional Storage Shelf
This shelf is a budget friendly option and could definitely work in multiple spaces! Honestly, it would work in basically any room (bathroom included!).
5-Tier Gold Shelf Bookcase
This tiered bookcase is a nice option for a small space. Again, that vertical storage is your friend if you’re working with minimal area! This also comes in black.
5-Tier Wall Mounted Ladder Shelf
This is probably the most similar option to the one I have in my office (pictured above). However, this one is two-shelves taller than mine. Which I think makes it a bit more practical!
3 Door File Cabinet
We have been talking about getting a filing cabinet for the longest time! Naturally, I had to include them in my hunt as I was putting tother small in home office ideas!
3 Door File Cabinet With Lock
If you need a file cabinet with a bit of extra security, consider getting one with a lock. This is a nice and sleek option.
Winsome Wood Halifax Cabinet, 5-Drawer
This would be great in an office to store all your office supplies! Designated drawers for pens, papers, etc.
VASAGLE Retro Bookcase, 3-Tier Bookshelf with Doors
This mid-century modern bookcase is so beautiful! And it’s actually quite tall! It would be perfect in an office or as a vertical sideboard in a dining room.
HOMCOM 59″ Wooden Bookcase
I think this is such a cool bookcase! The details on the wood, the mix of closed and opens shelves. This would be a fun one to style!
White and Gold Floating Shelves
These are perfect for hanging over a desk, especially if you’re working with a smaller space.
Home Office Accessories
Acrylic Monitor Stand
This is the computer stand I have (pictured above) and I love it. It’s very sleek and practically speaking, I love the height it brings.
Wooden Computer Monitor Stand
This is a very Scandinavian looking computer stand, and would look great atop a white desk.
2-Tier Computer Monitor Stand
This one comes with a bit of added storage, perfect for a pen tray or to store an iPad or even your phone.
Extra Long Computer Monitor Stand
If you like to have a multiple monitors to work from, this computer stand is long enough to accommodate that.
I have a sloped laptop stand sitting on top of my computer riser and it makes it so your laptop sits at an angle that doesn’t hurt your neck. Highly recommend one if you work from a laptop. This one is also a really nice price point.
Ergonomic Adjustable Laptop Stand
This is the higher end version of the above, if you’re looking to really up your posture game. The height is adjustable so it would pair well if you stand to work sometimes.
Leather Desk Mat
This is currently in my cart to buy! A keyboard desk mat and mousepad combo that’s very aesthetically pleasing.
This is the keyboard I have (pictured above). I actually put off getting this for the longest time and then my husband bought it for me at Christmas. I’m mad that I didn’t get it a year ago because it’s SO much nicer to work from than my laptop keyboard.
This is also the bluetooth mouse that I have and use every day. It has great reviews and I’ve found it works well! I’ve had it for 2 months and haven’t had to charge it yet.
Magnetic Cable Wrangler
I want one of these in my office and one on my nightstand. I loathe when charging cords fall down behind furniture and you have to thread it back. If you’re like me, this little wrangler will save you a lot of frustration.
6 Pack Cord Organizer
If you have a bunch of cords and they always look like a tangled mess, get yourself this cord organizer. It holds up to 6 cords and will keep your space looking clutter free.
These mouse pad’s are nice looking and I love that they have a removable wrist rest. It comes in so many pretty colours.
Home Office Decor
Adding decor is an easy and affordable way to personalize your home office and make it more aesthetically pleasing. Photos, artwork, and plants can add color and texture to your workspace. A rug can also add warmth and comfort to your office floor. Lighting is also essential in creating an inviting and functional workspace. Natural light is best, but if that’s not possible, consider adding a desk lamp or floor lamp to brighten up your workspace.
If you’re looking for some shoppable options, I share some of my favourite rugs in this post and have a roundup of beautiful lighting in this post (scroll to the bottom).
Setting up an aesthetic home office is important for creating a comfortable and inspiring workspace. Choosing the right colour scheme, furniture, accessories and decor can improve your mood, productivity, and creativity. By following these tips, you can create a home office that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
