I’ve been working for myself for over two and half years now and I wouldn’t change it for the world! I’ve talked a few times on here about the pros and cons of being your own boss. One of the major things that oscillates between being a pro and a con for me is not going into an office everyday. At first, it was awesome! After eight years of heading into an office daily, I welcomed my new found freedom of managing my own schedule. But overtime, I started missing the daily interactions with coworkers and having a defined space to work. The answer? An inspired space with the right home office decor.
Since launching MARA earlier this year, I knew I had to get serious about creating an inspiring space in my home where I could really focus. I wear many hats, so my office had to be clean, inspired and functional. I completely tore apart our ho hum of an office and filled it with simple white furniture, a book shelf to house all of my favorite reads, and a gallery wall to keep me inspired. The space is small but makes me happy and allows me to focus. We will be getting a MARA office soon, but for now this little space is doing just fine. I’ve linked to the pieces that are still available online if you want to shop!
