10 Favorite Home Offices for Zooming in Style

The Design Atelier

 

We had used Zoom precisely once before the stay at home order.

Now, our days are defined by it!

With everyone working from home, we’ve wondered how much of a trend it will be. Will we go back to work as we once knew it? Or will our lives be forever changed?

Either way, this is the perfect time to embrace stay-at-home style for now and beyond.

Whatever your personal style, there’s a too-good-to-be-true home office to suit your needs and mood.

Even if your work-from-home involves fractions instead of spreadsheets, Google Classroom instead of Slack, there’s the perfect inspirational space to ride out our stay-at-home days in style. 

Which is your favorite space?

A USA Today Bestseller, an American Book Association Bestseller… And a Publisher’s WeeklyBestseller… And a Bookscan Bestseller… And it’s all because of YOU! So alllll the thank yous, my wonderful readers, for taking what could have been a lemon of a launch week and making it into the sweetest lemonade! I am truly wowed by all of you.

Feels Like Falling

 

Feels Like Falling has received numerous accolades, including Goodreads’ “It” Book of Summer! It’s available now from your independent bookstore, Barnes & Noble, Amazon and on your Target, Walmart or Kroger run! The perfect read for right now, Publisher’s Weekly said, “In pitch-perfect tones, Harvey creates two Southern women doing their best to deal with everything life throws at them, and her able plotting will keep readers turning the pages…Harvey’s optimistic tale just might convince readers that bouncing back can actually land a person in a better place than where they started.” Publishers Weekly

My next novel, FEELS LIKE FALLING, releases April 28, 2020! I can’t wait to share this tale of Gray and Diana, their unlikely friendship, their summer loves and their chance at happily ever after, the sequel, with all of you. It’s never too early to preorder from your favorite local bookstore or online retailer!

More About Feels Like Falling…

From “the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand) and the bestselling author of the Peachtree Bluff series comes an odd couple tale of friendship that asks just how much our past choices define our happiness. 

In her warmest, wittiest, and wisest novel yet, Kristy Woodson Harvey delivers a discerning portrait of modern womanhood through two vastly different lenses. Feels Like Falling is a beach bag essential for Harvey fans—and for a new generation of readers.

Things We Love: Meaningful Collections

collections of canes
Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles

 

When you live on the coast, you have a lot of time to think about which things in your home are most important to you. 

 

collections of porcelain
Suzanne Kasler

 

At least once a year there is some sort of hurricane or major storm and, not wanting to be stuck on an island indefinitely, we evacuate. (It was the deal I made with my husband when we moved! I’m pretty sure he would never leave…)

 

collections of china
Beth Webb Interiors

 

Generally, we don’t give it much thought. 

 
collections of antique audubon prints
Sarah Bartholomew

 

Board up, pack a bag, hope for the best, come home and assess. 

 

collections of books
Suzanne Kasler

 

But everyone has those things that are most important to them, those special, sentimental pieces that represent family or trips or happy times, the non-negotiables that they pack up and take when a disaster seems imminent because they would be heartbroken if they lost them. 

 

collections of silver
Beth Webb Interiors

 

It could be signed books, family silver, favorite, irreplaceable photos taken during a time when clouds lived in the sky, not on our cell phones and laptops.

 

 

Collections, if you will, that don’t fall into the “it’s just stuff” category. 

 

collections of blue and white
Suzanne Kasler

 

It could be a collection of treasured blue and white china, collected over generations and passed down or simply gathered through years. 

 

collections of baskets
Serena & Lily

 

Baskets adorning a wall

 

collections of tortoise boxes
Suzanne Kasler

 

Precious tortoise boxes, each symbolizing a cherished vacation, memory or special occasion, 

 

collections of cornishware
One Kings Lane

 

Charming Cornishware given piece by piece as wedding gifts from family and friends. 

 

 

 

Or maybe even family china or linens, repurposed and much loved. For me, for years, it was nothing. But, when Hurricane Florence came, and maybe now, ever after, I took two treasures: an antique lapdesk and an early 1800s mother-of-pearl and sterling dessert set that belonged to my husband’s grandmother and was one of my favorite wedding gifts. It was far too beautiful for floodwaters. 

Are you a collector–or a wannabe collector? What would you collect if you were going to start?

More About Feels Like Falling…

From “the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand) and the bestselling author of the Peachtree Bluff series comes an odd couple tale of friendship that asks just how much our past choices define our happiness. 

It’s summertime on the North Carolina coast and the livin’ is easy.

Unless, that is, you’ve just lost your mother to cancer, your sister to her evangelical husband, and your husband to his executive assistant. Meet Gray Howard. Right when Gray could use a serious infusion of good karma in her life, she inadvertently gets a stranger fired from her job at the local pharmacy.

Diana Harrington’s summer isn’t off to the greatest start either: Hours before losing her job, she broke up with her boyfriend and moved out of their shared house with only a busted Impala for a bed. Lucky for her, Gray has an empty guest house and a very guilty conscience.

With Gray’s kindness, Diana’s tide begins to turn, but when the one that got away comes back, every secret from her past seems to resurface all at once. And, as Gray begins to blaze a new trail, she discovers, with Diana’s help, that what she envisioned as her perfect life may not be what she wants at all.

In her warmest, wittiest, and wisest novel yet, Kristy Woodson Harvey delivers a discerning portrait of modern womanhood through two vastly different lenses. Feels Like Falling is a beach bag essential for Harvey fans—and for a new generation of readers.

Things We Love: A Banquette That Elevates the Room

banquettes
Jeffrey Dungan Architects

 

We do it. We know you do too. You get to a restaurant and there are a couple chairs on one side and a big, cushy, cozy booth on the other.

Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles

 

If you’re with older friends or relatives, bosses etc. you probably selflessly take the chair side, feeling like a martyr the entire time as you do.

banquettes in dining room with Serena & Lily

If you’re with your kids or husband or maybe even your best friend, there’s probably a bit of fighting over the good side that ensues. At least, there is in our world.

So why relegate the squishy, comfy, cozy booth side to restaurants when you can have one in the privacy of your own home?

 

Meg Braff Design

 

All of these gorgeous banquettes make us think that this is really the best idea.

And who cares if you sit four wide in the privacy of your own home? We’re not judging.  An awkward corner becomes a fabulous reading area with the addition of built-in seating,

And a simple breakfast becomes an event. 

Serena & Lily

 

We love the space-saving abilities of banquettes, and how it can be built straight across, in an L-shape, a U… You get the idea.

Kate Marker Interiors| Emily Kennedy Photography

 

It even has the power to transform a charming breakfast area into a multipurpose space, perfect for reading, crafts or anything else your family needs! 

Are you a fan of banquettes? Do you have one in your home? 

Thanks so much for stopping by Design Chic today! We always love it when you do!
