Beautiful Home Office Decorating Ideas

It's so nice to have a cozy personal little space to really "do your own thing". I'm currently a bit obsessed  with home office set ups. And I'm just drawn to these pretty, minimalistic yet...
functional home offices.

Which ones have given you the most inspiration? Do you have a home office? I'd love to hear. xx

P.S. I absolutely love home offices that don't look too office-y. My home is small so my office takes up a corner of my living room. (Photos to follow.) My entire house definitely needs a makeover, but if I had to pick just one room I would start with the living room/home office corner. I think a few small touches- a new chair and desk supplies can give the room a new, stylish feel.

They are all so nice, especially office #2, it is so spacious, a lot different to the cramped space in which I have to work.
Love the cat fixing the blinds. :)
Happy weekend dear Betty!
hugs
xoxoxo ♡

Nice ideas dear ! But as for me, number 3 is the best ! Simple and little office, as home should be home :) have a great weekend !

Hugs and kisses.

i like the second one, with all the storage... i love the looks of the small desk in small spaces, but where is the printer, and all the STUFF

ΑΘΗΝΑ said...

Cool ideas with creative imagination!However I would be ok with a simple desk.

wenn said...

I like pic 3 with lots of drawers.

Sylvia K said...

These are great, Betty! I love the ones near a window! I'm fortunate to have my desk in front of two windows so I can work and watch the world go by as well!! Hope you have a lovely weekend! Enjoy!

Kelly said...

All so light and bright! I'm not sure I could pick a favorite, but perhaps #2 or #3.

Hope your weekend is wonderful!

I like the office in the second picture because of the window, though I would probably looking out of it too much :)

TexWisGirl said...

#3 with the multiple small drawers in the desk looks handy to me - and cute, too.

Nancy said...

Love the idea of a clean office space, but not sure that is a reality in my world. :) Must have a window and some type of storage for printer paper, etc...

Grandes y buenas ideas

Hi Betty, We have an entire room (bedroom) devoted to our 'office'... George is on one side and I am on the other.. I need more space than what is featured here---but IF I chose one of these, I'd choose the 2nd one...

Hugs,
Betsy

Cloudia said...

I too have a corner. These are all bright and sweet:-)

I love the minimal look of those home offices. Mine is so packed full of stuff.

My condo has a large bedroom with an area for a sitting room and a second postage-stamp sized bedroom that I use for a home office. I decided it wasn't even big enough for a bed. I do have a futon in there though, which just barely has room to open out. :)

Margaret Adamson said...

Hi Betty I like the 3rd one best. it is roomy, light and has a view. I would have a better chair to sit on.

Our Neck of the Woods said...

Those offices are all so pretty! I really like the ones that are mostly white. Seems like a nice clean room would leave lots of room for creativity :)

Your photos are gorgeous! Wishing you a happy weekend :)

Elizabeth Anderson said...

Hi Betty The weekend will be one of manual labour. However Ihe week was brighter because I got to see my daughter for a short visit.

I love the look of all the offices, so simple and clean. I'm in the process of claiming the front room for my painting studio. It won't look pretty but it will be mine.

Haha love the cat fixer upper photo. They can be so helpful don't you think? ;)

Your other photos would be great additions on the wall of a home office especially if you don't have those wonderful windows with a view.

Leovi said...

It's definitely a house with beautiful designs, excellent pictures!

Pat said...

I like office #4 because of those beautiful glass doors, bigger desk, and those gorgeous book shelves! The other offices look way too neat for me!

I just LOVE those three photos you took! How the heck did you do that one with the umbrella?

Bob Bushell said...

Nice outlook of the offices.

I can't afford nice, or any, office space. I have my "office" in my bedroom. But it's next to the window, and I get a lot of sunlight. That's all I require for my work environment. Well, chocolate too.

Be well, Betty.

I like the fourth photo that shows office 6. That window is awesome, but around here it would be too hot most of the time.

Love the umbrella image!

Have a nice weekend!

Tamara Camera said...

I think I like the second to last one best. It's the one that looks most like the one I have. And I love the one I have. I'd love more light, though.

τέλειες ιδέες για διακόσμηση Μπέτυ. Ωραία χρώματα,ωραίοι συνδυασμοί.Εγώ έχω μία γωνία όπου είναι το γραφείο,και το έχω έτσι ώστε να βλέπω όλο το σπίτι.Δεν μου αρέσει να τα έχω πίσω μου,δεν ξέρω γιατί.
Οι φωτογραφίες σου...όνειρο!!!

C'est vrai que d’installer et décorer un intérieur reste tout un art fait de savoir, de goût, de subtilité.Comment ne pas y être sensible quand on sait que notre environnement influe sur notre vie en permanence. Bravo pour ce très beau blog.

Amicalement

Bonjour,

Quel choix pour un petit coin bureau ,... Je pense que celui de la photo où se trouve l'illustration de Snoopy me plaît bien et également celui face à cette grande baie vitrée face à la nature...

Un très joli blog... une découverte où je m'autoriserai de nouvelles visites.

Un grand merci pour votre très gentil commentaire.

Gros bisous et bonne fin de weekend.

They are all nice office spaces, the second and fourth ones are my favorites. Your sky shots are lovely. Beautiful images. Have a happy Sunday and week ahead!

Leovi said...

Yes, some nice pictures, beautiful skies! The last one with the umbrella is sensational! Greetings!

Riot Kitty said...

Ha! My cat totally does that with the blinds.

Gorgeous pics as always...I love the nook under the stairs with the Snoopy pic.

AmyLK LK said...

I would love to have a separate room for my home office but not so. :(

Love the sunset pictures! Gorgeous!

Craver Vii said...

My favorite work area is the recessed bookshelf. So glad to see you back, Betty! I really like the focal zoom on the Autumnal Sunset. That's a brilliantly done silhouette of the chain link and flying birds in the sunset. I like the way you combined a landscape with urban flair!

Dennis Evans said...

I like best the one with all the bookshelves and the big windows. In fact both are necessities for me. My office is in my home/manse(parsonage) but it is scandalously messy. I've been "talked to" about this.

Nancy said...

Thanks for sharing at Tuesday Muse Betty! Have a lovely week my friend.

....Petty Witter said...

I so love the office space with the dinosaur picture. As for the office under the stairs, such a good use of space.

ladyfi said...

Wow - your photos are stunning.

Nelda McEwen said...

Hi Betty. I love this post. I am inspired.

Lisa Gordon said...

I love them all, Betty!!
Very spare, yet functional.
Thank you for sharing here!

Hilary said...

I don't care for the look of most of them but I did like the second one.

I love your gorgeous photography. How in the world did you do that with the umbrella?

The blinds made me laugh. Benny fixes mine that way too.

Leovi said...

Yes, a beautiful design, I love it!
Un abrazo!

SweetMarie said...

The second one is perfect! :) Happy days to you!

diane b said...

Number 2 gets my vote. I used to work in the corner of our living room but then we built a bigger office downstairs for my husbands business so I took over the office upstairs. I just love having my own room. The most important thing is the biggest desk possible to fit computer and printer/scanner and books.

Pat Tillett said...

Very nice designs.
Betty, you've posted a lot of photos on your blog. The "sunset limited" photo might be my favorite of them all.

Starry Dawn said...

Hi Betty,
I love your awesome ideas how to decorate a computer room.
We have a computer room in one of our bedrooms. It looks plain and simple, just like an office.
However, I would love to add a special artistic flavour to enhance the boring look that it has got nowadays.
I like bright colours...
Thank you for sharing your your talents with us! You truly excel.
All the Best,
Poet Starry Dawn.

Mandy Southgate said...

I love these ideas! The best thing about moving to the UK for us was Ikea! I love their space saving ideas and we have one of their desk / book shelf combos that I use in our spare bedroom for studying and blogging.

Sandy Carlson said...

Wonderful spaces. I love Snoopy in that last one!

Bruno Leroy said...
