Along with the requisite resolution-making, a new year presents the opportunity to rethink our spaces. We’ve found that an inspiring and thoughtfully organized work environment can have a profound influence on our ability to focus and be creative, so we took some time to seek out some examples of home offices that combine beauty and function with stunning results. Whether your workspace consists of a standalone office or, as in the above interior by Atlanta’s Susan Bozeman Designs, a carefully accessorized desk bathed in natural light with a comfortable chair nearby, these rooms prove how pretty a highly productive area can be.
