Flower Power

For an inexpensive and easy home office pick-me-up, look to mother nature. As interior designer Laura Umansky says, "fresh flowers brighten up any workspace, plus their floral scent is an instant mood boost. I always have a floral bouquet within eyesight when working at home. The color and shape of the blooms always makes me feel creative."

Inspiring Environment

Even if you don't have a designated home office space, you can still create a productive work environment. "Find a place in your home, if you don't have a separate office, that inspires you and is quiet and away from the general day to day activities," interior designer Janice Barta says. "Add personal touches to your work space, like a plant, candle or artwork. This helps stimulate a calm and inspiring environment to look forward to each day."

Top-Notch Chair

After working from home for an extended period of time, you won't regret splurging a top-notch office chair. Interior designer Laura Umansky explains that "this is more of a self-care purchase than an office supply: invest in a high-quality chair. Find one that is supportive, stylish and built to last. After a long day, your body will thank you."
