My company recently announced that we would be working from home for another 9 months. After 6 months of making due in my at home office, I decided that it was time for a little bit of a room makeover. I wanted to adjust the room to more of a permanent office space that worked for my needs.
Before quarantine, I used my office room as more of an extended closet, guest bedroom, but also had a desk space. I rarely worked from home, so I didn’t use the desk space very often. Now that I use the space daily, it was time to adjust. I didn’t end up doing a major makeover, but a few tweaks made the space so much better for stress-free work!

My work recently let us know that we will be working from home for at least the rest of the year. I was happy to have clarity, but another 6 months of working alone at home seemed sort of ominous!

When I first moved into my house, I found a bookcase on the side of the road that I loaded into my car and used to store my shoes and purses. As I’ve finally grown up a little bit and can actually afford furniture, I wanted to get the monstrosity out of the room and replace it with something a little nicer.
I started this post with the intention of a Marie Kondo-inspired organization overhaul, but I realized that my house is already pretty organized (SORRY!). My organization kick did inspire me to clean up my home office, get rid of some clutter, and give it a refreshed look.
My favorite room in my house is my living room. It gets the prettiest morning sunlight from the east that spills across the room. It’s also one of the rooms in my house with the biggest transformation after we installed the vintage hardwood floors.
We all want our homes to feel like a place to recharge and relax, but sometimes creating that kind of space takes a little more than budget allows. That doesn’t mean there aren’t little things you can do to help yourself feel just a little bit more *fancy* as you go about your day. Here are my top ways to make little improvements, without breaking the bank:
