Minimalist Home Office Decor Shopping Guide

Creating a space that helps you feel peaceful and productive is the key to work-at-home success. And these home office decor items will do just that!Who says you need an office to create an office space? Once upon a time, home offices took up a lot of room with oversized desks, clunky computers and massive filing cabinets.

Thankfully, now all you really need is a laptop and an internet connection and you’re good to go! Of course, not everyone can focus if they just plunk their computer down on their dining room table.

Creating a space that helps you feel peaceful and productive is the key to a successful work-at-home situation. And what that means to you may be completely different from what it means to someone else.

Good thing online marketplace Etsy makes it super easy to create your very own customized home office. If you have yet to shop using Etsy – you just have to. YOU JUST HAVE TO! Sorry. I get really excited about supporting small businesses from across the globe, many who make handmade, sustainable furniture and accessories for your home.

And I probably don’t have to mention (but I will anyway), that remembering all of the hardworking small business owners during our world’s current health and economic struggle is a very worthwhile thing to do. #StandWithSmall

 

Creating a space that helps you feel peaceful and productive is the key to work-at-home success. And these home office decor items will do just that!

 

PLUS, Etsy offsets all of their carbon emissions generated by shipping. So, what are we waiting for? Let’s get into it!

I also feel that this sort of pendant looks great while also offering a decent amount of diffused overhead lighting. If your style is more minimalist-industrial, check out this matte black globe light by IlluminateVintage.
