If you’re new to a work-from-home lifestyle, you might still be relishing the freedom to work from the couch in your sweats, or at the kitchen table in your PJs. It doesn’t take long, however, before these purported luxuries become a real drag and you start longing for the ergonomic advantages of an office setting. Yet if you have an aesthetically driven career (or personality, in general) the thought of working in stereotypical office is purely terrifying.

The beauty of a “home office” is that you don’t have to wait until you have a Chief in your title to have the posh corner office that you get to decorate however you want. You can create your home office to suit your particular tastes and productivity quirks. I used Houzz.com to fantasize about inspiring and highly functional work spaces. In a perfect world, my office would look like this both at home and in spaces shared with colleauges.
