Looking for a little home office inspiration? Keep reading below as I share my tips, tricks and top picks for a home office.
This month marks one year since I transitioned our Circle Room to my Home Office. For those of you who have been following along for awhile, you know just how much I loved our Circle Room. It was a cozy room we used all the time, so I held out on converting it to an office for as long as I possibly could. However, after working from our dining room table for more than a year, it was finally time to create a dedicated work space with drawers and doors.
Since Havenly designed our Circle Room, I reached back out to them for help modifying the room to accommodate a work space while preserving as much of the room as possible. And I couldn’t have been happier with the design they created, which thankfully required only a few new purchases. I moved two of our white swivel chairs and ottoman to our family room and added a beautiful (and functional) desk.

And I’ve rounded up some of my favorite items in my home office! I use and love all of these items daily…
- Felt Tip Pens: My favorite pens for color coding all my to do lists and paper calendars. These pens have a very fine tip, come in a pack of 10 and are less than $5!!!
- Desk: I absolutely love this desk. It has 3 roomy drawers and is ginormous.
- Heating Pad: Y’all…I use this thing ALL DAY LONG. We keep our home freezing and I’m usually sore from 9Round, so this heating pad is a lifesaver for me. It heats up quickly, has 4 heat settings and a magnetic closure on the front so it doesn’t slip off your shoulders. Highly recommend!
- Laptop: I spent way too much time researching laptops and ended up with this beautiful HP touchscreen. It is truly perfect.
- Laptop Stand: This is the stand I use for my laptop. It’s adjustable up to 17′, can tilt and has a vent so your laptop doesn’t overheat.
- Daily Planner Pad: My note pad for daily to do lists and scheduling.
- Lap Desk: If I’m working in my bed or on the couch, this is the lap desk I’m using! I love how it has a built in mouse pad and a slot for your phone.
- Monitor: I have TWO of these ginormous 24″ monitors and couldn’t work without them. They are amazing — especially when I’m working in spreadsheets.
- Docking Station: This is my docking station for my laptop and monitors.
- Keyboard: My wireless keyboard that has a built in rechargeable battery (via usb). It is super slim and keeps a charge for 6 months at a time.
- Mouse: My wireless mouse that comes in a million colors.
- Phone Stand Charger: This was the office item I didn’t know I needed until Matt surprised me with it! It charges my phone super fast.
- Ring Light: I clip this onto my laptop for video meetings.
- White Tea Diffuser Oil: This scent is unbelievably amazing (I think the Ritz uses it in their lobbies too) and makes my office smell fresh and clean.
- Throw Blanket (color snow leopard): The BEST $15 blanket ever that I’ve blogged about a million times. We own 4 of these!
- AirPods: Absolutely could not get through the day without these. I live with my AirPods in.
- YETI Coffee Mug: My favorite mug for keeping my coffee hot.
- HP Inkjet Printer: This printer has been perfect for printing, copying and scanning documents — from our laptops, phones or tablets. And we subscribe to HP’s Instant Ink program which automatically mails us our ink cartridges when they are running low.
- Bluetooth Speaker: The speaker I use to listen to music while I work.
- Laptop Tote Bag: This is the only item on my list that I don’t actually own…yet. It’s on my wish list after so many of y’all recommended it!
