5 Ways to Make Your Office Feel Like Home

Jessica Bosse Photography 5 When we found this inspiring tour of Meredith Heron's interior design office on Style Me Pretty Living, we started thinking about what makes the perfect workspace. Being aesthetically minded design lovers, we find we're most productive in colorful, cozy, spaces full of thoughtful details that remind us of the comforts of home. Clearly motivated by similar factors, we've pulled five key elements seen in Heron's offices to illustrate that even though there's no place like home, your office can be a close runner-up.

Use decorative lighting like table lamps and sconces to add beauty and character to spaces which need additional illumination. Jessica Bosse Photography1 3. Hide binders, files, computer equipment and office supply storage in beautiful armoires or bookshelves outfitted with stylish hardware. Jessica Bosse Photography3 4. Don't ignore the design of your office kitchen and bathroom. Good looking upgrades don't need to cost a fortune (the cabinetry in this office is all from Home Depot!) and can make all the difference.

Creating a small lounge area can help quickly recharge your batteries and get you back to work in no time. See the full tour of Meredith Heron Design's office on Style Me Pretty Living.
