Whenever I’m mad at my fiancé, when I need time to think, or when I need to create and be creative, I turn to my office. So basically I think every woman is entitled to her own office. A space which is her own, which reflects her as a woman and as the stylish, powerful person that she is or can be.

I think it is important for a person to keep creating her or himself. Sometimes you can achieve that on your own, but mainly, a certain space is needed to be yourself and to channel your inner creativity, beauty, power or to just damn relax.

A woman’s office can tell so much about her. Yes, some people don’t really mind what their office looks like because they are so busy killing it in the corporate world and climbing the ladder to success. But allow me to let you in on a little secret. Your office can help you achieve that success. It can make you feel better about yourself and yes, even if you are aiming to reach the top of that ladder, you still like pretty. You like beautiful. You like stylish and modern. And of course you need a space at work or at home which can complement your Chanel work suit, and still shout to the world who you are as a person, so no, it can’t be bland.


It is very important to create this office space so that you can actually work, which is ergonomic, which is welcoming to other people, and yes, stylish just like the person you are.  A minimalistic design can achieve just that.

A minimalistic design is exactly what it says. Minimal. The main idea of this design is “less is more”. A clutter- free zone where you can still express your need for style and creativity. It seems that the interiors of modern office designs are following the minimalism trend to the core, with its sleek, stylish and clean look that has well-defined lines in every aspect of the office or space.  These minimalistic designs vary in shape, size and often are accentuated by unique shades, colours and patterns that give them much needed individuality. Designs showcasing the fact that inspiration is never too far away.

One of the most essential advantages of opting for the minimalist design is that it not only is easy on your eyes and looks both contemporary and classy, but it also does not demand much in the form of materials that are needed. A home office that is minimalist in style also seems to need a lot less décor as cluttering it with too much takes away from the clean and clear lines.


Before you start creating your minimalistic space, you need to look at the room or office space as a whole. Of course this is much easier if this is a home office. Next you need to decide on a colour scheme or decorating ideas. Of course, this has to be kept to a minimal 😉 Big art works are no longer just for the art collectors, but can be perfect in a minimalistic office.

Except for one art work, clear the walls. Clear your desk, as well as your computer. Everything needs to be open and “fresh” if you will. Eliminate unnecessary work tools, yes, you don’t need your stapler, scissors, pens, calculator and cell phone all on your desk at once. Maybe just your coffee is needed.

Make sure your floors are clutter free and find a place for everything in your office. Once you used it, put it back in its place.

This environment will not only help to get your work done, but it will create a stress-free Zen zone. And yes, you can then achieve anything you want. As long as your office and personal space are clutter free and as minimalistic as possible, the world is yours ;).
