Katharine’s top 10 tips for styling an inspiring home office

Tip 1: Make it personal. Add artwork, framed photos, colorful flowers, Objects you associate with happy memories, Even though you are working this is your home – Make it feel happy.

Tip 2: Add a statement lamp – It’s the easiest way to make your desk more elegant.


Tip 3: Bronze & Gold accents work well with soft neutrals to instantly freshen your work area.

Tip 4: Why not update your screensaver to be something beautiful & uplifting? I find seasonal flowers work really well – Just update them every week and move with the season.


Tip 5: In a smaller room opt for a Roman blind rather than curtains. Maximise your natural light & use a large scale patterned fabric for added interest!


Tip 6: Add a sculptural desk chair for a touch of glamour – Fluted uphostery for metal tacking both work well.


Tip 7: Add a beautiful leather desk set & new stationery – A sharp pencil is a sharper mind.


Tip 8: Chic frames add a depth of colour. With photos of your family & friends they will remind you of happy times & be a great motivation.


Tip 9: I always have jars of colourful sweets at hand on my desk. They offer a much needed sugar lift & brighten up my desk beautiful – My all time favourite liquorice.

Tip 10: In a smaller apartment adding a neat desk to an alcove or window works well. It’s much more uplifting than facing a wall & at this moment in time we need our vitamin D more than ever.

In this uncertain times, we are all finding new ways to work & live. Small changes will make a big difference so play around, have fun & see what works best with what you have.

Wishing you love & health.
