Being able to work from home successfully greatly depends on how well you can focus while staying in the comforts of your own room. It’s important to create a space exclusively for working, but that also inspires and relaxes you. Personally, I love being surrounded by books, looking out the window, lighting a candle, and maybe enjoying a cup of coffee while I work. I don’t need a large space for that, but it needs to be clutter and distraction free. For tips on creating your own home office sanctuary, check out this post by Emma Banks at CamilleStyles.com:
-Inspire- white walls with artwork will work wonders
-Focus- create a clear division between “home” and “work”. If you don’t have a separate work room, decorate your area differently than the rest of your home.
-Nature- bring in plants and flowers, and open a window.
-Personalize and add finishing touches- surround yourself with what influences your creative process.
