If you want your office to be a comfortable and welcoming space that you don’t mind spending time in, then it needs to have a little bit of you in it. The office should speak to your interests or your personality.
A lot of people will decorate their home office spaces to give them greater comfort or to make it feel more like home. Decorating can be a great way to turn a plain and spartan space into a personal one. How would you like to make yours more feminine?
We have some feminine home office design ideas that we want to share with you. You can use these to spruce up your office or be inspired to try some of your own feminine home office decor ideas.
1. Make Your Chair Fuzzy
A fuzzy cover for the chair can make it so warm and cozy that you’ll want to snuggle up in the chair for long periods of time. It won’t be so uncomfortable to sit in, and it can keep you warm when your family has the air conditioning too high.
Choose a fluffy, fuzzy cover that suits your office. If you have a bland-colored office, then a bright pink fuzzy hair cover can really pop and give your office some much needed life. If you want to keep a subtle tone for your office that isn’t too bright and bold, consider a lighter hue or perhaps a pastel color. Of course, your options will be limited by what you can find. You will have a lot more choices if you shop for a fuzzy, comforting chair cover online, but you can always look at local retailers, like home furnishing stores, and see what is available.
You could opt for a faux fur selection that looks dignified and refined. This is a great way to make your office look all business without making it look busy. You could also go with a long-haired, crazy-colored cover that screams “I like to party all the time!”
Another choice you will have to make is in the size of the chair cover. Do you cover the entire chair, including the seat, or do you cover only the back support? It’s up to you and what you feel comfortable with.
You will also need to choose between fitted and loose. A loose one will close around you just slightly as you sit in it, but it can also shift around when you sit. You may have to constantly adjust it. A fitted one will stay in place as well, but it won’t be as warm or comforting, we think; so choose your style carefully.
2. Color Coordinate
Another way to turn a or home office feminine is to match the colors carefully. A white a purple color palette isn’t just feminine; it is neat and orderly. If you get a matching table lamp, desk organizer, drawer set, and coffee mug for your office, your space will look very stylish. Consider a one or two-tone color coordination theme and then fill as much of your office as you can with these coordinated items.
The coffee maker, cup holder, the chair, and even the work desk itself can be matching with the same colors and similar designs, if possible. This matching set of office items will look incredible and will make the entire office feel very neat and organized.
If you have been working in an office with items that are from different stores and manufacturers and all of different colors, then you are missing out on the sense of joy that comes from color coordination. Some feminine home office furniture that is all color coordinated is so suave and sophisticated. You will love picking out a matching set and then perhaps adding to it over time.
3. Make a Backdrop
It can be tough to keep your home office looking professional. If you are doing video calls from your computer, then sometimes the background of your home can come into view. Your clients or employers can then see your other family members going about their lives or they may be able to see into other rooms. That might not look very business-like, and kids can be unpredictable when they are caught on camera.
By adding in a backdrop, you can keep your office space looking professional and feminine at the same time. A curtain makes for a simple but effective backdrop. You can run a pole from one wall to another and hang a feminine-looking curtain there to give your office a woman’s touch. Something shimmery or even glittery can really give your office a special look that speaks to your personality.
Your office does not have to be boring, and when someone see you on a video conference call, they don’t have to be bored by plain-looking walls. They also don’t need to be able to see into your private home life. You can sperate your home and your work by putting up a curtain, literally creating a barrier for yourself between the two of them. Just set up the curtain as far back or as close as you need to give yourself ample office space and to keep home and work separate.
That curtain can be a great way to make a cheap partition between your office and the rest of the house. You can enjoy a little more peace and quiet, as the curtain can block out some noises for you. It can give you a measure of privacy and make you feel like you have your own, personal space rather than that you are sharing your office space with the rest of the family.
You will have fewer visual distractions as well with a curtain hanging up, so this is really a win-win all around. Plus, it is easy to take down if you ever need to. You can remove the curtain at the end of the workday to free up space in the home.
4. Make It Smell Lovely
Here is a feminine home office idea that doesn’t have to change the appearance of the office much at all. You can add a scented candle or other aroma-creating item to the office area. It can be on your desk or off to the side, and the scent will be able to help you relax and make your workspace smell wonderful.
So, even when you have a great big pile of work to do for the day, you can sit down, take in a whiff of the lovely scent in your workspace, and then feel less stressed and more ready to handle the workload.
A beautiful scent can help transport you to another place as well. Many people will hang pictures on their office areas to help them focus for a while away from their work area and their duties. You can do the same thing with a candle or aromatherapy product. Just close your eyes and take in the lovely smell. The scent may remind you of another place and let you escape from your office in your mind.
With an interesting, relaxing scent in your office, you always have something to look forward to. Even when you know you have some unpleasant work to do for the day, you can look forward to getting in your office and smelling the beautiful aroma.
5. Decorate with Flowers
We have to include the go-to way to make any space more feminine- add some flowers. Whether you choose to go with a fresh bouquet or fake flowers, your office will be made more beautiful and womanly with this addition. Of all the feminine home office design ideas that we could give you, this is probably the one that most people will start with.
A pot of flowers can be placed on your desk so that the bright and beautiful colors are always right there in your line of sight. Or, you can set them off to the side, on a shelf or windowsill. You can even install flower holders on the walls so that you can line your office walls with flowers. A potted plant on the floor or a few hanging plants can create a nature theme for your office.
There are lots of ways that you can decorate with flowers, and these are just a few ideas to get you started. One of the wonderful things about flower decorations is that you can change them out every so often as the mood suits you. Keeping a number of fake flowers on hand gives you a supply to draw from and play around with in your decorating.
If you decide that some flowers decorating your home office are not enough to make it as feminine as you want, you can always try some of our other ideas or come up with some of your own. We know that you will have fun decorating your office and making it a space that’s professional but also feminine and a reflection of who you are.
