Working from Home During a Pandemic: How to add Some Happy to Your Space


It’s probably a safe bet to say this has been the strangest, most unfamiliar year in recent history. Nothing in our world looks the same these days – and chances are likely they might not seem too familiar for a while. On the bright side, many of us can now spend more time with our families in our own homes.

While working from home can be a bit of an adjustment, doctoring up our spaces to be more reflective of our personalities, our interests, and our mood can make a huge difference in the overall outcome of our mindset. The finished product that is our work will be that much better once all is said and done.
