Hello everyone! It’s a beautiful, bright, sunny day where I am (and hopefully where you are, too!). One of the first things that my husband and I did to our house when we moved in back in November was to revamp the room that would become my home office and craft room. It had a psychedelic purple/yellow/orange/green paint palette, no furniture or character, and was just screaming for a home office makeover. I think if a space is drab, or worse yet, headache-inducing, then you won’t be able to work to your full potential, especially if that space is supposed to be an office or craft room. So Nate and I pulled out the paint brushes and drop cloths and went to work. You can see my nook room makeover here for what it looks like in it’s current state. It’s not done yet, but it’s a heckuva lot better than when we started!
Home offices and craft rooms are absolutely crucial to bloggers – we need our space to write, take photos, interact on social media and create, much like someone who works in an office building needs their own cubicle to take phone calls, answer emails, and work on projects. These spaces can come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, from carved out closets to grand multi-purpose rooms.
If you are someone who works from home and want to get inspired for your own space, or just enjoy great interior design, I’ve rounded up some great home office makeovers from fellow bloggers so you can get a feel of where we work and the amount of sweat that goes into making a gorgeous creating space! Click on each of the blogs below and get inspired 🙂

Loving the use of space in Pefectly Imperfect’s writing room. Rooms with slanted roofs can be tough, but she fills the space beautifully with a white credenza. I’m a huge fan of her little reading couch in the corner and the collection of items on the shelves.
Offices come in all shapes and sizes and I absolutely adore this closet office from Create Bake Celebrate. Love the pops of yellow for visual interest and that sheepskin chair just looks too cozy! Her home office makeover is definitely inspiring for all those who have limited space!
Fun patterns are featured in Home Coming’s office space. I love the striped blanket and the crosses on the storage box. Add some texture in your own space through interesting and varied patterns. The pink/black/white color combo is strong and bold with a fun girly touch!

I can’t get over how awesome Vintage Revival’s office makeover is! Like I literally can’t get over it. This space gives off a great mid century vibe with the wood tones and trapezoidal wall pattern.

Another small space turned functional is featured over at The Painted Hive. Her use of bookcases and and a table top instantly make a great computer nook in a home without a dedicated home office. Her space feels very natural and earthy with the nature print art gallery and beautiful gold and green colors. My favorite is the owl in the gold frame!
The key to a great workspace is to minimize clutter and maximize organization and functionality!

I love the pendant light fixture and arrangement of books on the shelf!
Homey Oh My!’s home office makeover has been getting a lot of attention – and I totally see why! It. Is. Absolutely. Gorgeous. Her striped accent wall is an innovative way to transform a rental wall and all of her decor pieces in blue, gold, black, white and pink just give me goosebumps. This space is perfectly curated and shows that you don’t need a lot of space for a big wow factor!
