The beginning of a new school year is the perfect time to refresh your home office.  Here are a few ideas for creating an enjoyable space for working and dreaming. 

What do you look at from your desk each day?  If you are facing a wall, create an inspiration board with goals, motivational messages and photos of people, places and things that make you smile.  Limit your desk accessories to items you use all the time and that fit your style.

Change your screen saver to the ultimate view that you would like to see from your window while working.  Blogging from my Paris apartment with a croissant and a café au lait would be a fantasy of mine! 

Switch out those manila file folders and that beige stapler and add some flair to your desk.

Think about creating an accent wall.  It could be a wide stripe, wallpaper, metallic grass cloth or chalkboard.

Give your file cabinet a makeover.  Turn something that would ordinarily hide in your closet into a decorative piece of furniture for your home office.   Here’s a great idea using free pallets.
