I love being able to wake up, get dressed and head downstairs to work! Working from home has many advantages, including the flexibility of setting my own schedule, saving time and money by eliminating daily commute, and allowing myself to start a business with minimal overhead. Whether you work from home or have carved out space for something you love like crafting, reading, or writing, your home office is a place that should inspire the flow of creativity and allow you to get down to business. To help you create and update your own inspiring space, I am sharing my boho office decor and advice on the best home office updates and small home office ideas that will make you want to buckle down and get to work!!

So don't be afraid to have fun with it! I wanted to design a space that was modern, functional and inspired me. I kept the furniture simple and neutral then added in some green foliage and a colorful rug to give the room some texture and keep the boho office decor vibe! I painted this room with my favorite white - Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace.

Whether you have a modern office or a boho decor, the computer monitor so there's no glare from a window or overhead light. I used a sheer curtain to block direct sunlight but still gives my office plenty of light to cut down on eye strain and headaches.

Many home offices aren't swimming in square footage, so using space efficiently is imperative. Hang floating shelves or use vertical bookshelves to optimize your home office space. The shelving unit to the right keeps the space organized, serving as a storage unit for office supplies. I used file folders to organize important papers. I prefer a clean desktop, so I designate these drawers for my office odds and ends.

Decorate with images that speak to you. Fill your office with vibrant art to energize your space and make you feel motivated. My gallery wall art is curated from Minted against a neutral wall for a modern boho feel. Use removable wall strips to hold your prints up. This allows for the flexibility of changing the look of the wall.
A lovely plant is said to help keep you feeling calm and clean the air—plus it looks pretty too. Whether you have a modern office or a boho office decor, plants are a must! I like either a Snake Plant or a ZZ plant. Both look lovely, are good for cleaning the air, and are low maintenance! The bird of paradise on the left love light and grows fast and is fairly easy to take care of as well! If you have a black thumb, here are some great realistic faux plants.
I positioned my desk where I can stare at something more interesting than a blank wall. I get to look at this DIY Hat wall, shelving unit with my favorite designer pursers, and a mirror.
Bar carts aren't just used just for alcohol! If you're like me and caffeine, not alcohol, is your drug of choice, try creating a coffee station — no booze required. Scroll down to see how I style a bar cart without alcohol.
