How to make your work from home space, chic, yet functional

When I was first told we would be working from home, I was super excited. This meant an extra 30 mins to sleep in, being able to drink from my Le Creuset mugs, not being distracted by my super fun colleagues and spending less time in traffic right. I went out and got myself a desk and comfy chair for my home office so I could be ultra-productive. However, after a year of working from home. I feel like I need a change of scenery at home. Here are a few ways that I’m changing up my space.
