If you’re new to working from home and are creating a home workspace then we’ll run you through all the home office essentials for your home office set up (the gorgeous bits… not the tech)

Like many people lately, you may have found yourself working from home.

And, whilst it has so many benefits, it’s probably left you trying to work out where to fit in a workspace and wanting a gorgeous home office to work from!

Whilst it’s easy to sort out the technology you need when working from home, what we prefer to focus on are all the gorgeous things that make working from home a whole lot better.

On the desk is a iPad pro with keyboard, and iPhone 11 pro max, along with a pot pant, a set of 3 cactus in a yellow pot. Above the desk is a picture of limes and a clock with the time and date on it.

We’ve been on a little virtual shopping trip and put together a gorgeous home office set up with all the beautiful home decor and accessory ideas you could want.

Home Office Desk

Let’s start with the desk. Clever Closet sent over their 60 second desk for me to try out. This clever pop-up workspace solution means you can make an office anywhere in literally 60 seconds!

So even if you’ve no real room for a home office, you can create a moveable one. Check out the full 60 second desk review and the video of me putting it up to show just how quick and easy it is.

The fact this desk is really quite compact, means you could decide it will fit in a corner and you can actually create a static home working space.

Home Office Chair

I think if you’re working from home, you want a little glamour in your life and the Harper Velvet Dining Chair in Shell will add a luxurious vibe to your home workspace.

This statement home office chair in dusky pink, with generous curved seat and chair back with plush velvet upholstery is gorgeous. It effortlessly combines luxury with a modern design.

Desk Lamp

The adjustable Derby Clamp Table Lamp by It’s About RoMi (Amsterdam based design house ‘Realistic Open Minded Individuals’) is the perfect home office desk lamp.

It’s simple yet classic design with bold lampshade & long, slim extendable and adjustable body make it easy to position the light exactly where you need it making it ideal for flooding light onto your work.

We love that this takes up only a tiny amount of desk space as it’s clamped to the edge of the desk, so it’s the ideal choice when creating a small home office where space is a premium.

The Derby Clamp Table Lamp is made from powder coated durable iron and comes with a 1.75 metre fabric cable and hand switch attached.

I like my home to smell good. The lovely Pure Incense Resin Kits blended by the Benedictine Monks of Prinknash Abbey are perfect for burning in the home office workspace.

They come in three calming, atmospheric scents – Basilica, Sanctuary and Cathedral. And I think creating a calming, relaxing workspace that smells absolutely divine, really helps me to work better and focus more.
