10 Instagrammable Homes Inspiring Our WFH Aesthetic

Work from home, but make it aesthetic.

Home Improvement

If there's one thing this pandemic has taught me, it's the importance of intentionally cultivating a space of my own. They say your home should be your sanctuary and while I ascribed to that notion in the idealistic sense--it took a forcible stay indoors for me to really lean into it. And when I say lean into it, I mean I REALLY leaned into it. From pillows to canvases to throw blankets and succulents, any and all things related to elevating and enhancing a space, I'm now totally here for.

And if you're anything like me, you realize that curating your space--during a time where we're not quite sure if we're still working from home or living at work--is a necessary key to maintaining a sense of peace in the midst of all this chaos. And that's exactly why we've rounded up a few of our fave WFH aesthetics to hopefully inspire you to add a bit more flavor to your futon or little color to your loveseat.

So if you're ready to spice up your space, read on to feel all the home decor feels and get to it!

Monroe Steele

It's the mostly neutral palette with the pops of color and plants for me. Monroe has always been beauty and style goals, but her Harlem home is giving major Work and Chill vibes. From the living room to her bedroom, I see why they say there's no place like New York.

Karen Blanchard

This space screams "vintage, but make it chic". And the muted colors in contrast with the gold accents instantly elevates this room from a boring home office to an ornate addition to your overall home decor. But with a mirror like that, it'll definitely be tempting to just stand there and take selfies all day. Just make sure to get that work done first, sis!

Jasmyn Lawson

There's a reason why Jasmyn's space was recently featured on Apartment Therapy. And that's because the wide-range of jewel tones and Black art fully encompasses modern millennial space that's conducive to working, writing, painting, and everything else in between. (Can we talk about that green sofa, we'll take two!)

Melissa's Wardrobe

I don't know about you, but every time we see a monochromatic look--whether it be in clothes or interior design, something inside us applauds. From the sofas to the rugs to the art on the wall, this space is sure to be the topic of conversation in all of your Zoom calls. And keeping the palette calm with black and white accents is never a bad idea either.

Apron Saint

I can't tell if it's the beehive-esque layout of the shelves or the sprawling plants that make us fall more and more in love with this space. It's cozy yet, spacious enough to promote creation of your best and brightest ideas. Coffee and a notebook not included though.

Dominique Gebru

While we may not have enough books to fill up these beautiful shelves like our good sis Dominique, we can still take cues from her decor. The marigold curtains. The hunter green pillows? We're ready to curl up for an after-work glass of wine, like yesterday.

Bethany

If this pandemic has turned your thumb green, then this space is right up your alley. Get one with nature and one with your coworkers (socially distanced, of course) with this calm, earthy aesthetic. Plants sold separately, so head to your nearest florist shop if you want to incorporate these lively additions.

McKenzie Renae

MJ may be the King of Pop, but we just might dub McKenzie Renae the queen of home decor. The exposed brick, velvet couch, the leopard pillows? Get into it! And the gold accents definitely pull the space together to give it a sleek, stylish vibe.

Cynthia Andrew

For all the girls who love color-blocking and pattern-mixing, this space is definitely for you! Whether you choose to go hard with the pillows or accent rugs, the key here is to let your true colors shine through. No pun intended. This space is sure to brighten up even the bleakest of virtual meetings.

Ezinma

We've got one word and one word only for you: WALLPAPER. This bold choice is guaranteed to be the showstopper and conversation-starter no matter what. And by keeping the rest of the decor muted and neutral, let's just say we'll be taking all our meetings in bed for the rest of the day.

Join our xoTribe, an exclusive community dedicated to YOU and your stories and all things xoNecole. Be a part of a growing community of women from all over the world who come together to uplift, inspire, and inform each other on all things related to the glow up. We drop xoNecole events and special opportunities into our Tribe first.

The Evolution Of Serena Williams

It is like witnessing magic when you watch an athlete do what they do best. To see a mere human soar in the air over to the other side of a bar or to witness someone run at a speed quicker than a human thought.
