Whether you secretly harbour dreams of becoming a world-famous novelist or you just need somewhere to pay bills, a home office can be the perfect refuge. Even if dedicating a whole room in your home is a bit of a stretch, you can carve out a section of your kitchen or living room for a desk and computer. However you decide to set up your working area, you’re going to want it to be stylish and organized so it will flow with the rest of your space. Start with these key pieces.
Organize and accessorize
Store letters and bills in an elegant letter holder until you get around to dealing with them. Classic and sophisticated, this Victorian office accessory from Gild and Co. is elegant enough to take pride of place on your hall table or office nook. $48.
Instead of a dull and uninspiring desk lamp, choose an antique lamp that will not only stop you straining your eyes but will create the perfect focal point for your office space. Rewired and ready to use, these vintage pieces from Stepback will fit in with any décor. $75 to $150.
File in style
Gone are the days of those ugly, old-fashioned metal filing cabinets that were an eyesore in any room. Now you can file your important paperwork in a sophisticated wooden cabinet instead. Pottery Barn’s Livingston printer cabinet is made from kiln-dried solid meranti wood, washed in a grey finish and fitted with dark pewter hardware. Tuck your laptop in the top drawer, stow the printer in the bottom one, and your office space will instantly look clean and uncluttered. $1,819.
A pastel rug in on-trend pastel pink and blue will bring your home décor right into your office space. Soft and luxurious, the Tofino rug from EQ3 feels wonderful under bare feet and the short pile will make it easy for you to roll your office chair over it. Comes in three sizes, ranging from $382.49 to $769.99.

In the pink
Instead of the usual blah black vinyl office chair you see in every office space, why not wheel in a soft blush pink version that we guarantee will brighten up even the dullest day? Cheery and easy to clean, IKEA’s Langfjall chair will make even balancing your bank account fun. $199.
