The home office is a functional space that should be well organized and adaptable to different activities.  But just because a home office is designed specifically for the purpose of work, does not mean that it can’t be styled to fit the person who will occupy the space.  The woman’s home office can be designed for aesthetic comfort as well as function.  Here are some feminine home office design tips to inspire, whether the space is for household business or it is the hub of a home-based business.

For the desk, forgo the heavy masculine desk in favor of a lighter style.  Even a table can be repurposed as a desk if you have space for additional storage.  If you just need a space to spread out paperwork or a computer, a simple table will suffice.  Paint it white for a fresh alternative.  Acrylic is a great choice for the modern feminine office as well.

Get creative with lighting.  Install a glamorous chandelier or pendant lights over the desk.  Choose a desk lamp that is decorative as well as functional.  Install dimmers for when you want to just relax in your office to get away from a busy schedule for a while.

A comfortable chair is a must.  Choose a desk chair that is ergonomically designed for optimum comfort and support.  Go for a little extra luxury with plush white leather, velvet or a vibrant cotton print.  If you have a home business and entertain clients in your office, create a separate seating area with a comfortable love seat and/or chairs.

Personalize your office with favorite artwork, photographs and decorative accents.  Choose office accessories and supplies that appeal to you and accent your office design style.  Decorative boxes and containers help keep paperwork and files organized while infusing style into the room.

Feminine touches, such as fresh flowers, are a quick fix for a dull home office.  Add pretty rugs, throw pillows on any seating you may have, and add a mirror for quick checks before clients arrive.  Place a decorative tray on your desk for mail or on another table in the office to serve guests (or yourself) drinks and snacks, if appropriate.

The feminine home office doesn’t always have to be frou-frou, but adding simple graceful touches can create an environment in which a woman feels comfortable conducting business.  Whether the office is for household management or a home-based business, infuse some femininity into your décor for an office that is truly your own.
