With so many of us in work-from-home (or WFH) mode now, there’s a lot that’s new. Whether you’ve long been a PJ warrior, or you’re new to working from home, the work week looks a little different from here. If it’s fresh ideas you want, or a new twist on tried-and-true setups, you’ll find all the style and substance you need to strike the ideal work/life balance, right here. Either way, you’ve got a sweet commute.


This built-in workspace is light, airy, and open for business. A cozy nook at the top of the stairs means you can maximize every corner of your townhome and Zoom with a view. Keep a colorful to-do list right on your desktop and you’ll never miss a thing.


Step into the office—from the sun-drenched patio, of course. In a light-filled space like this, warm wood, earthy tones, and vibrant colors bring the outdoors in. And because this office is located on the first floor, you can pack up and head upstairs when the day is done.


There’s style to spare in a multi-functional spare bedroom like this. A Chief Creative Officer, Interior Designer or Fashion Blogger’s dream, this clean modern space is perfect for getting ideas down (and scrolling through endless feeds). When the posting’s done, wrap up and voila! You’re ready for next houseguest: one room, two functions!


Industrial meets modern cool in this den with a studio feel. The paned glass wall and open concept give you privacy, while keeping those “junior interns” in your line of sight. Add a chaise and you’re ready for business—meaning casual-Friday client calls or virtual cocktail hour with your co-workers (you’ll have them drooling over your office style) Pro tip: A highly visible space inspires you to be extra organized.


Start fresh each day in an office that’s clean, charming, and full of natural light. With traditional touches like barn doors and shiplap, this first-floor office space is the perfect getaway. Plus, built-ins and wall sconces de-clutter your desk and maximize the space. How’s that for pure productivity?


Climb your way to the top! A couple extra feet at the top of the stairs can get you this hub of productivity. Right between the bedrooms, this multi-functioning zone handles homework and work-work in one dedicated space. Organization is a snap: with loads of built-in storage, high-demand items are right within reach and everything else is tucked out of sight. Productivity, meet efficiency.
