Working from home has its pros and cons. One of the advantages is definitely that you have boundless freedom in arranging it the way you like it. Your office should be a place where you feel comfortable as you spend probably the majority of your day there. Even if you don’t mainly work from home, but just check your mails or doing some trifles there in the evening – if your desk is not welcoming, you will find it hard to sit down there. To make your home office a cozier, prettier and more organized place – or to just pimp it a little – we have collected some ideas that deserve consideration:
Nothing is more destructive than having bits of paper everywhere and not finding what you actually need, but anything else. Bins, boxes and paper trays provide space for the things that you don’t know where to put.
Having an agenda is the essential thing; it is actually practical to have one that is reserved for only work-related appointments and notes.

Creativity and Creation needs inspiration and therefore a little messiness isn’t too bad. To keep it within the scoop, it’s advisable to limit yourself to a certain space of mess. A pinboard helps to keep it all together.
Illustrated Books don’t only make good paperweights, they are also nice to flip through when your head is full and you need some distraction.
