Capturing Your Personal Style Within Your Office Décor
Sick of your boring, uninspired work setting? Follow these tips to capture your personal style in your office.
Whether you work from home or not, chances are you spend a lot of time in your office. It’s called “adult-ing”. If you do work from home, that’s all the more reason to not let your special space resemble a prison cell, especially if you work long hours. Go above and beyond the necessities to create your own little man or woman cave. Follow these tips to create your personal style within your office décor. It’s simple and, dare we say, fun!
Behold! The Power of Your Desk
We all know that moment during an interview when that person across from you takes their spot at the desk. It’s intimidating, right? Even if you’re ready to nail the interview, the desk can come across as a thing of power. All this means that, if you spent about two minutes at Ikea or trolling garage sales for yours, you’re doing it wrong. Allow it to be the powerful thing that it can be.
Choose mahogany for a classic statement, and trim everything in gold possible for an Oscar-worthy desk. Make it so that every time you sit down behind you feel as though you’re in the driver’s seat and going about 90 MPH towards success. Make sure to keep it uncluttered to maximize productivity.
Clock In With Style
Of course, we all know that most people don’t even wear watches anymore, as the vast majority of us use our smart phones to keep time. However, if you pass over the opportunity to decorate your office with a clock, you’re missing out on an opportunity to really show off your personal style. Try a whimsical, modern clock from Touch of Modern for a conversation piece. Unless you require an alarm, a digital clock has no place in your office (or anywhere for that matter).

What lies under your very feet can be one of the most exciting ways to reflect your personal style. Of course, hardwood floor is a very classic way to go in an office, but have you seen the tile that looks like hardwood? The gray color is particularly soothing and stylish and, with the durability of porcelain, this can often be the way to go. An area rug is another excellent way to let your style shine through or feel free to go with a fun shag or even a faux bear rug for a retro bit of cheeky fun.

Oh, Paintings, Where Are Thou
Paintings and art, in general, are a great way to reflect your personality in any room, and the office is no exception. You don’t have to pay thousands of dollars at your local gallery either, although more power to you if you have the money to dedicate and support your local artists to boot.
Pick a scene from your favorite beach or park nearby to set just the right mood. From canvas to dimension and framed art and beyond, Z Gallerie offers a huge selection and, at reasonable prices, you won’t break the bank. A panoramic view of your favorite city is also one of our favorite ideas for an office setting.
Accessorize to the Moon and Back
From a colorful throw blanket over that ultra-chic chaise lounge to a collection of pillar candles set up just so in front of the fireplace, accessories are an ideal way to give your office some oomph. If you’re prone to stress while working in your office, opt for a lavender candle for its aromatherapy benefits. A chic table lamp on your desk can reflect your sense of style in lighting, or two matching wall sconces can set the right amount of ambience. Vases, drapes, and photo frames are another way to take your office from ho-hum to va-va-voom.
