Popular media company theSkimm makes it easier to live smarter. Hayneedle makes it easier to create the home of your dreams. We were one of a few select brands to help make over theSkimm’s New York City office space to reflect the style and ease of the brand. Read on to see how you can give your office space some easy updates.
A few simple updates for your home office don’t have to cost a lot. If you stick with your core pieces, just make a couple of tweaks to liven up your look.
1. Add Some Color
You don’t have to paint the walls or anything, but even something as simple as switching out some desk accessories will do the trick. The signature teal of theSkimm was infused throughout their office space as well as greenery from plants.
2. Invest in an Unexpected Element
This could be anything, depending on your budget and personal style. An ottoman? A bold statement rug? For theSkimm it was wine racks.
3. Lighten Up
Natural lighting is important in a work space, but if you don’t have much or any, you can still have proper overhead lighting. Try a floor lamp like theSkimm did next to their sofas or a desk lamp. If you want to be an overachiever, switch out the light fixture in your home office to something unique and inspiring.
4. Switch Out Décor
Just like in your living room, switch out pillows or a throw blanket in your office. Neutral sofas are forever pieces that look great with any decorative pillows, so if you have evergreen furniture, swapping out décor pieces is easy. You can also add or switch out plants on your desk, try a new, modern bookcase, or add a bar cart to double as stylish storage space.
