How to Bring The Outdoors Into Your At-Home Office

Give Your Home Workspace An Outdoorsy Makeover

Whether you’ve always worked from home, or the COVID-19 pandemic has kept you out of the office, the at-home office comes with perks and drawbacks. It’s nice to work in your pyjamas, but many at-home workers find themselves overcome with cabin fever.

If you’re stuck indoors but want a slice of outdoor life, have no fear. Consider these tips, and you’ll turn your at-home office into a faux outdoor adventure.

Tips for Turning Your Home Office Into a Nature-Inspired Getaway

Pick an Outdoor Theme

Many people like the outdoors for different reasons: some like the cool, crisp atmosphere of fall, while others like feeling the breeze on the beach. You should consider your favorite aspects of the outdoors when planning your office makeover. You may choose a season (fall, winter, spring, summer) or a location (the beach, the slopes, the cottage) – there’s no right or wrong outdoor theme.

Decorate with Plants

Plants are the perfect way to make any space bloom with joy. There are so many lively types of plants you can choose, and they can be displayed in a variety of ways. If you’re new to caring for plants, start with something simple and low-maintenance, like a cactus or pothos plant. Then, start filling your room with elaborate and exciting plants.

Flowers Are Your Friend

While plants can turn your workspace into a green space, flowers add an array of beautiful colors. With bold, vivid flowers, you’ll feel like you’re working in a garden. We recommended roses, as they stand out as a dazzling centerpiece to any decorative display.


Use Earthy Materials

Sometimes, the right decorations can bring life to a workspace. For an ultimate outdoorsy ensemble, pick colors and materials that have a natural vibe. Earth tones and neutral colors are the foundation of a perfect color scheme, and materials like stone and tweed are helpful. Get creative, and incorporate pinecones and seashells into your décor – can you think of more ideas?

Make a Collage of Photos

Some of your favorite memories took place outdoors, from beach days and barbeques to camping trips and thrilling adventures. Make a collage of your favorite outdoor memories, and pin it to your wall for easy access.

Use Natural Lighting

Looking at LED lights can get tiring quickly – especially if you’re looking at a screen all day. Get as much natural light as possible by opening windows, and bring your laptop to your front porch to let the sunshine brighten your day.

Use Scents for an Outdoorsy Aroma

Most workplaces have restrictions on strong scents, but at home, you’re the boss. Use an outdoor-themed air fragrance or light a scented candle to create a cozy, outdoor atmosphere.

With a nature-inspired at-home office, you’ll feel like you’re working in the forest, on the beach, or in your favorite outdoor environment. Plus, you can always switch up your home décor when you feel like it’s time for a change of season.
