Whether you live in a teeny-tiny city apartment or a pad that’s a bit more conducive to spreading out, having a home office-type space that’s clean, clutter-free and conducive to getting some work done is key. In an effort to help make productivity as pain-free as possible, we’ve rounded up some home office inspiration and key pieces that both of you will love!
Divide and Conquer Utilize a sleek file cabinet to divvy up a desktop into two separate work spots – it’s a great space-saving solution! A wooden desk maintains its simplicity with a black and white color palette, while two distinct styles of chairs keep the set-up from becoming too matchy-matchy. The Juliet Chair from American Atelier and the Institute Chair from Stilnovo make a pretty pair.
Be Bold TogetherNeutrals not your thing? Choose a shade you both love and go big with it! We love how this gorgeous green sets the scene for a sleek seating situation (the S Chair from Zuo is not only cool but ultra-comfy), while a floor rug keeps the warmth within the space. Try Surya’s Fallon Flatweave Chevron Rug in lime for a citrus twist that makes hunkering down to do work a bit more enticing.
Play With Texture
A simple color palette works when texture sets the tone. The striking Office Wall Clock and Seagrass Baskets (both from GoHome) play well together, and the Waterworks Studio Octagon Wastebasket shows that even trash can be stylishly swept away!
Let the Chalk Talk
At Zola HQ we’re all about chalkboard paint – it’s a focal point in our NYC office and a fun way to leave notes and artistic inspiration. When the writing is literally in the wall, to-do lists seem a bit more fun! Throw some greenery into the Canvas Home Morandi Bud Vases for a natural vibe, and hang a collection of Eccolo Wall Frames to keep some cherished memories in sight.
Create A CollageThere’s no easier way to create a space you’ll both enjoy working in than to fill it with a collection of art and mementos that you both can appreciate. When art is imperfectly hung, as demonstrated in Paula Mills‘ global pad, it creates a laid-back vibe that we dig.
