Even if you’re short on space in your home, I would always recommend making room for a home office. Whether it’s a desk in that spare nook in your hallway, or a dedicated room complete with a fancy swivel chair and lines of bookshelves, it always helps to have a dedicated space to get those creative juices flowing. In this edition of Spotted on Instagram, I’m rounding up the very best home office design pics to inspire you to create your very own haven of productivity. #DeskInspo here we come!
A home office doesn’t have to take up much room. Just take a look at Nora and Laura’s kinfolk-inspired nook as a case in point.
The rustic desk has room enough for a spot of writing. Just make sure not to clutter your space with too many unnecessary accessories – a simple vase with a single flower stem should do.
If you love all things Scandi then pay close attention to Cara Irwin’s home office setup.

Elegant paper fans and a vintage radio add a whimsical feel to this home office. To jazz up your own desk, consider adding decor and cutouts under the glass tabletop.
For a sophisticated take on home office design, make like Rachel Fawkes and think monochrome.
If you’re more of a dreamer, swap out the oversized calendar for a print of your choice. Or if you’re the kind that needs a little more encouragement when it comes to getting things done, how about putting up a motivational decal?
Susanna’s cute writing corner looks like it belongs in a cozy rustic hideaway.
To get that traditional antique look without it costing a fortune, opt for furnishings in deep rich wood tones and say hello to instant character.
