5 Inspirational Decor Ideas for Your Home Office
Remember those motivational posters that were all the rage a few years ago? You probably had friends and family share them on Facebook, or send them to you when you were having a tough time. These photo-and-quote combinations became so overused and nearly too cheesy for some people that it even sparked a whole new line of “demotivational posters” in the same style.

3. Create a Vision Board
If you like images over text, why not create a vision board? These are photo collages that help you create a vision for your goals--whatever they may be! You can include photographs of role models, images that make you feel happy or at ease, and even keywords you want to focus on.
Vision boards can centre around any theme you pick:
- 2021 Goals
- Acting on Broadway
- Starting a Business
- Writing a Novel
- Playing Pro Sports
- Living in the Moment
These vision boards also help you visualize and narrow down what you really want to work towards. The process of selecting and arranging your images also motivates you to achieve your goals! Put your vision board somewhere you can see it every day.
4. Stitch a Quote
If the vision board didn’t quite fill your craft quota, you can get even more creative and stitch some pieces for your wall! Crafts like cross-stitching and embroidery have also been shown to reduce stress and combat depression, which makes this decor piece a two-for-one. A cute wall hanging AND a way to practice self-care during the day!

5. Set a Wallpaper
If you don’t have the space to decorate, you can always use your computer’s desktop as a virtual space for inspiration. In fact, you can even make your vision board online and set it as your computer’s desktop wallpaper!
Some people set wallpaper photos of their family, pets, or a special event like a birthday or graduation to brighten their day. Having an inspirational quote as a wallpaper works in the same way--every time you read this quote or see your vision board, you’ll be motivated to work towards your goals!
You can do the same thing with your phone wallpaper or lock screen, too. Opening your phone or laptop to an uplifting message is much nicer than seeing a default blue background.
