I am excited to be sharing my home office in the bedroom today. This little work space has been an evolution over time. If you saw my Denver apartment tour when we first moved to this place, you will notice we have a “flex space” that was initially supposed to be my office.

Unfortunately, I never felt inspired to work in there when it came to writing. I love working on my furniture projects and teaching online fitness classes in that area.

I decided to relocate my small writing desk to my bedroom next to our our big beautiful floor to ceiling windows.

This worked for a bit when I was working full time at a gym each week. When I did spend time at that space, it was enjoyable. The evolution of that original home office in the bedroom was showcased on my 5 Ways to Decorate Your Apartment on a Budget post.

Now, based on the photo above some of you may be asking yourself… “Meredith, why did you change your perfectly cute home office space in your bedroom? It looked fine!”

I realize that it looked fine, but I just started a new job working from home 40 hours a week and sitting at that little desk and chair for 8 hours a day wasn’t going to work for me.

My husband also works from home and loves having an adjustable standing desk to switch up his accounting work from his music work during his days. Having options are nice.

I decided to bite the bullet and invest in some quality office furniture. I started with the Autonomous Avo Chair and the SmartDesk 2 Premium.

*By selling my smaller desk and chair on Facebook Marketplace I recouped some of the cost of my investment in my new home office furniture. The buyer was elated to have it in her small apartment.

My first mistake in this transition to making my home office conducive to my new job was desk placement.

This new desk was much wider than my last one. It just wasn’t going to work the same in front of my window like the smaller desk. Another consideration was that I had to think about moving the hutch under my mounted TV. I planned to shift the desk into the left corner.

After a lot of thinking about it, the result was a making the shift. Check out the AFTER photos of what my work from home office in my bedroom now looks like.

It’s very natural, zen, and functional for what I will be doing 40 hours a week from home. Online Health Coaching is now my main gig and I am loving working from home so far!!

Dressing the floating shelves was fun and simple. I didn’t want this little are to feel too cluttered. All the decor items that I already had around the house and the ones that I recently purchased came together quite nicely.
