With the new year rapidly approaching, I’ve been dreaming of different ways I can redecorate and organize my makeshift home office in my family room (for the time being). I fell in love with the beautiful Williams Sonoma Lacourte home office collection, especially their stunning black desks a few months ago, and have been obsessed ever since! I have the elegant secretary desk on my vision board, and keep thinking about how gorgeous it will look in my living room!
As someone who has worked at home for over a decade, I can honestly tell you how much better I feel working at a desk. I used to use a laptop on my sofa with no back support. I would work for hours at a time with no breaks and had back pain to go with it. Having the proper workstation, (home office essentials and inspiring books!) can make all the difference in the world when it comes to productivity, feeling great, and increasing your revenue. I credit having a beautiful desk that I love, and a comfortable desk chair for the success I’ve had and how much better I feel. There were a few times I pondered buying a new laptop so I could work from my bed early in the morning, but I know that will lead to – back pain, bad habits and never giving myself a break! I’m not willing to do that again.
If you’re ready to write that novel in 2022, organize your schedule, study for an exam, or work from home from a gorgeous new desk, you’re in luck!
