Mood Board Monday – A Feminine Home Office and Getaway Space

Hi friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  This week’s mood board is based on my home office, which doubles as a quiet space for just “getting away from it all!”  Kind of like an indoor version of a she shed!

When we moved into our home about 7 years ago, I was working from home as a paralegal, so this room was designed around that purpose, with plenty of desktop and storage space.  Nowadays, I use this room to pay bills, work on my blog, and do some writing.

In addition, since I added a comfy chair and a tufted ottoman, it’s become my retreat, where I go to pray, meditate, read, and just ponder!

Some things I’ve included in my mood board and which I think are essential in a space like this:

  • a desk with plenty of room for files (so important for staying organized!)
  • good lighting
  • an office chair that supports your back
  • a small table or cabinet to hold your printer–the side table shown below has a couple of extra shelves to hold paper and supplies
  • an extra cabinet to store note cards and stationery, envelopes, office supplies, art supplies, etc. I use a white dresser for this purpose.  Not only does it hold a lot of stuff, it’s so much prettier than most office furniture!
  • a cozy chair and footstool for reading
  • a soft rug underfoot
  • favorite photos
  • a scented candle
  • flowers and plants
  • great books
  • inspiring artwork

Sources shown in the mood board are linked below.  For anything that’s no longer available, I’ve linked to comparable sources.
