Due to the coronavirus pandemic, people are now working from home in record numbers. As a result, home offices are more important now than ever before. It’s true that your home office should be conducive to productivity. However, just because your home office is a place to work doesn’t mean it has to be boring!

If you’re going to spend 8+ hours of your day in this space, you should make it an inspiring place to be. The right decor can help stimulate your creativity and increase your productivity. Use some inspiration from the top design trends of 2020 to create a trendy home office that will make you feel excited to get to work.

The windows are great for bringing in some natural light. The plants and windows create a lively mood that can help keep you energized.

Bedroom Offices

You may feel tempted to jump back to bed in this home office, but it sure is beautiful. The rich wooden desk with gold details is one-of-a-kind, and I love the klismos chair. The canopy bed is gorgeous, while the patterned carpet adds character.

If you don’t have an extra room for an office, creating a home office in a guest room is a great option. Isn’t this home office/guest room combination charming? I adore the lace linens draped over the canopy beds. They work unexpectedly well with the Turkish suzani on the wall and ethnic rug.

Home Offices with Geometric Patterns

This office nook is incredibly stylish. It incorporates the geometric trend brilliantly through the wallpaper. The bookshelf does a great job of breaking up the pattern. I especially adore the gold lamp and its unique shape, and I’ve always been a fan of a lucite chair.

I love the open floor plan of this home office/living room and how spacious it is. The geometric floors tone down the formality of the space and make it more modern. The beautiful contemporary couch and chair nearby are the perfect spots for occasional breaks.

Home Offices with Green Accents

The green walls bring a sense of cheerfulness and calm into this home office. It looks great with the white trim and sheer curtains. The zebra rug makes this room more playful and stylish. The statement lighting is a nice touch, too.

Home Offices with Black
