Paying your bills and balancing your checkbook — fun? Maybe not, but you'll dread these chores less if you're doing them in a workspace that you love. And by work space I don't mean you have to have an entire room to decided to your home office. A cozy nook under your stair case or in a corner will work just as well.

Not sure what color palette to use? Use colors that make you feel relaxed, focused and creative. For some people, muted greens and neutrals work well; others prefer a more elegant black-and-white motif.

Give your space character by using a vintage wall hanging as your focal point. Decorate it with items that inspire you.
