Whether you’re working from home every day or just a few times a week, dressing up your home office space with seasonal decor is a fun way to get in the holiday spirit. String lights, nick-nacks, cozy pillows and throws – no matter what holiday décor you choose for your home office, you’re sure to feel the warmth and joy that comes with the winter season.
We're sharing ten festive ideas for you to get started creating a beautifully decorated, festive home office. We hope these décor ideas bring you happiness this season and that they remind you of all the little joys that Christmas brings.
Let’s face it, sometimes office chairs are simply boring or businesslike, and that probably hasn’t changed much from your in-person office to your home office. One way you can spruce up your home office space is to add a cute plush or a festive throw blanket. A stuffed reindeer or even a pillow that displays the colors and sparkles of the season will add a simple splash that brightens up your home office space.
One of the easiest things you can add to your festive home office décor is a mug. Whether your drink of choice is coffee or tea, a Christmas mug could be just the thing that reminds you of the holiday season. The best part? If you are someone who reaches for a mug first thing in the morning, you’ll get a small reminder that the holiday season is here at the beginning of your day!
Wreaths aren’t created for use on front doors alone. They work just as beautifully on interior doors, windows and even hung directly on the wall. Why not add a small Christmas wreath to your home office and replace a piece of artwork or attach it to the front of your desk? You’ll love the added décor in your home office whether you choose a fresh, green wreath or a wreath made with fabric, ornaments, and glitter.
If you’re looking for a simple way to update your home office, pick out a few holiday signs. “Let it snow,” “Merry Christmas,” or “Have a holly jolly Christmas” are just a few examples of cute holiday signs that will be perfect for creating your festive home office. Place these signs on window sills, on your desk, or your bookshelf, or get creative and hang a few if you have some extra space!
No matter your space, you probably have room for a Christmas tree. If you have some extra space in the corner of your home office, a tree is a beautifully festive addition. Whether you choose a small tree that sits on the floor, a large tree that’s just as big as the one in your primary living space, or you opt for a tree that fits on your desk; you simply can’t go wrong with bringing a Christmas tree into your home office to make your space feel perfectly festive and fun.
There’s nothing like the smell of Christmas in the air, from sugar cookies baking in the oven to the smell of cinnamon and natural fir trees. To bring this scent indoors and to remind yourself of all the amazing things Christmas brings, grab a decorative bowl and some scented pinecones and place it near your workspace. You won’t need to light a candle when this scent is both delightfully scented and beautiful in its appearance.
Some spaces just need a little extra warmth, especially in the winter months. One way to get extra festive is to invest in an area rug beneath your home office desk. Not only will it add some insulation to your space, but it'll make your space even more comfortable. Whether you have hard or soft surface flooring, a cute and cozy area rug is a great choice. You can go for holiday colors like red, gold, and green, or keep it simple with a rug that will fit the space year-round.
A traditional way to celebrate the holidays, a string of Christmas lights will turn your home office into a dazzling wonderland. Go for classic string lights, bright-white lights, or colorful blinking lights to achieve the perfect festive home office. These lights also add to the ambiance and create mood lighting on dark days or evenings where extra work must be done, so there’s an added benefit!
With Christmas usually comes some sort of wrapped Christmas gifts. If you really want to bring in the joy of Christmas and you don’t want to invest in décor, bring in some of your gifts. Not only will they remind you of those you care about, but they also look great! If you don’t want to bring gifts into your office, you can simply wrap empty boxes. They have the same effect and look just as beautiful with very little investment!
When it comes to Christmas, one of the staples of décor are poinsettias. This season, add a few to your home office for a pop of stylish flair. Red, yellow, blue, and pink poinsettias are available in tons of colors to choose from for your home office. These indoor plants quickly bring the Christmas spirit into any space, thanks to their lively colors and natural appearance in the holiday season.
