Best Home Office Setup Ideas: Inspiring Office #1

Image of inspiring monochrome home office

If monochrome, minimalist aesthetics are your thing, the image above probably just gave you an orgasm. Even if you prefer a little color, you can probably agree that the design and use of wall space are impeccable.

Wooden floating shelves with decor

Floating Shelves

Part of what makes the desk setup shown above so easy on the eyes is the symmetry between the desk and shelving units. It’s tough to find anything long enough to have this effect, but these floating shelves just about pull it off.
