Masculine Office Decor for your WFH Space
With so many of us working from home (WFH) these days — and likely for the foreseeable future — it makes sense that we are settling in and trying to give our WFH spaces a little more personality. There seems to be no limit to the Pinterest boards full of stylish home office decor, but most of it has a feminine feel. This post is inspired by a more masculine sensibility. Here is some great inspiration and masculine office decor for your WFH space.
( psst… Father’s Day is around the corner and many of these would make great gifts! )
First, let’s start with the desk. Maybe you already have a little space carved out to do your work (hello, couch) but if you need a more defined space, your own desk is a good place to start. Also, (in case you’ve been showing up to work in your pajamas, a desk may help encourage putting on pants. . . or not; no judgement here.)
Let there be light! Good lighting is so important! This task light would be great for all the reading and writing you’ll be doing at your new desk.
How handsome is this chair?! Reminds me of a well-worn baseball glove. . . speaking of which, I really miss baseball . . .

Let’s talk desktop . . .
A handsome desk mat will not only give you a comfortable surface for your keyboard and a larger working area for your computer mouse (think of it as an extra large mousepad,) but it also protects your desktop from scratches, dings, spills and pen marks. As a bonus, a well designed desk mat gives your workspace some style and personality.
Now that we’re working from home, does that mean we keep a photo of our coworkers on our desks? Whether it’s for your family, a photo of your pet or a favorite quote or vacation spot. . .OR a photo of your old office mates. . . every desk needs a picture frame. I’m pretty sure it’s a rule.
Every desk needs the perfect tchotchke!*
Every office needs some great accessories . . .
. . . like an extra chair for your “coworkers” (aka your partner, kids, pet or roommate) or a place to sit and read or drink a cup of coffee that isn’t your desk.
. . . a few throw pillows
. . . a little touch of nature
. . . some additional lighting

. . . your own personal beverage cooler?
Okay, this one is obviously not a must, but how fun would it be?! you’re working from home now and can create the office of your dreams. Treat yourself! 😉

I hope this post has given you some good inspiration for your home office or for some great gift ideas! (Don’t forget: Father’s Day is June 21, 2020)
