today, i’m going to give you a tour of my home office. as a lifestyle and fashion blogger, it’s where i spend most of the time when i’m not on a photo or video shoot. as part of our new beginnings theme for the month, i’m hoping today’s post will inspire you all to have a stylish home office—and a stylish home more generally.
our homes are our sanctuaries from the madness that is the world around us, so why not make them an extension of ourselves. why not make it the most comfortable place where our friends and family can gather around and simply be and enjoy each other’s company?
have a stylish home office
on Sunday, i gave you a glimpse into my personal closet. how to design your home office—or any room in your house—is a totally personal decision and a function of your own aesthetics. with the advent of Pinterest and other design boards, it’s easy to compile a gallery of inspiration that can serve and guide us on everything from a refresh to a full-blown remodel.
personally, i’m a fan of clean clines and simple design techniques—like contrasting classic and modern design patterns—to create a space i want to be in. and of course i’m not immune to applying my personal fashion sense to my design one. animal prints anyone? if you share similar aesthetics as i do, i’ve compiled several widgets throughout this post of similar home office items like desks and lamps.
a day in the life of a lifestyle blogger
it may come as a surprise (or it may not), that as a lifestyle blogger, i actually spend most of my day in front of my computer doing everything from scripting photo and video shoots to answering emails from you. so, most days, i prefer to be relaxed and comfy while i work. and what’s says “comfort” more than a pair of boyfriend jeans.
today, i’m featuring a pair of boyfriend jeans from J.Crew. i’ve been all about J.Crew this winter, and they’re having a great flash sale today. so head over and see if you can find a good deal and let me know in the comments.
i’ve paired the jeans with a turtleneck from Everlane. i’ve been totally obsessed with with turtlenecks this winter. i even posted a how to wear a sweater/turtleneck dress last week in case you missed it.
home is where the heart is
home is where we spend most of our time: it’s where we can get away from the craziness of everything from traffic to geopolitical happenings. it’s where our family convenes for the holidays and where friends come over for a cup of coffee and chat.
what’s your home like? how have you designed it? have you built a fashionable office? or do you spend most of your time in the living room in your favorite chair reading a good book? are your kiddos still at home or are you an empty-nester like me? have you transformed their rooms into something else entirely or have you left it the way in which they grew up? let me know in the comments below about everything from your home design choices to what home means to you.
