Home Sweet Office

Jan 25, 2016 01:35AM ● Published by Family Features

For most people who work full-time jobs, it often feels that more time is spent at work than at home. Spare your co-workers and yourself a drab, flair-free desk and bring elements of your personal style to your work space.

Here are a few ways to add a little bit of your home's comforts to work:

Framed Photos: The best way to bring your favorite part of home to work is to bring in photographs of your family. Check your local hobby stores for tons of frame options that fit your unique style.

Inspirational Artwork: Fill those cold, bare walls with artwork that boasts color and style. Whether it's a self-portrait drawn by your child or a reproduction of your favorite van Gogh piece - art can add glamour to any space.

Fresh Smells: Some offices allow oil diffusers or flameless candle alternatives to give the air a burst of fresh fragrance. Some products offer hundreds of different scents you can change out to reflect your mood or the season. Look for scents that mimic nature - such as pine, eucalyptus or sandalwood scents - to bring the outdoors inside. But be sure to ask before you plug, as some co-workers may be allergic to heavy perfumes.

Stunning Storage: Favorite mugs and vases double as the perfect containers for pens, markers and other supplies. If you don't want to bring your prized possession into work, hit up the local thrift store for something fun for your desk.

Pretty Plants: Breathe life into the room with fabulous foliage. Whether it's alive or artificial, a potted plant can add much color to your nook, plus it's a natural mood-booster. If opting for a real plant, ask a garden expert at your nursery what they recommend based upon the amount of lighting that area receives.

Bring Stylish Rug: Vibrant rugs are an affordable option to perk up any small space. Cover up that worn-down office carpeting with one that feels nice enough to kick off your shoes.
