How to Create a Cohesive Home Office with Joy Johnston Design

How to Create a Cohesive Home Office with Joy Johnston Design

Paige Schnarr |

With the summer season coming to a close, we teamed up with Canadian interior designer Joy, @joyjohnstondesign to help her create an inspiring yet functional home office space. She shares some of her favourite tips below.

"When I began redesigning my own home office & studio I turned to Umbra for office necessities with good design at the forefront. It is important in my field of work to be surrounded by objects that inspire me, so every item that I choose is thoughtfully evaluated to ensure it suits the space and brings me joy. " - Joy


1. Evaluate every item

Everything can be beautiful, thoughtfully evaluate every item that enters your space (including the garbage can!), this level of detail is what makes all the difference.

2. Add greenery

Plants and natural elements are proven to improve our well being, hanging plants on your wall is a great way to add a big impact even in small spaces.

3. Find your routine

A lovely wall hook provides a place to hang your backpack/purse/sweater when you settle in for the day. Find out what works best for you.

4. Create cohesion

Not everything needs to match, but every space needs a 'through-line’ to feel balanced and at ease which will help you focus on your work.


Thanks Joy for sharing your lovely new office space with us!
