1. Determine the space
Whether it's a spare room, an alcove or your dining table, determine the space. If there's a view, make use of that.

2. Get a comfortable chair
Invest in a good quality, comfortable chair on which you can spend long hours. 

3. Pay attention to the storage space
Open shelving units can add layers of visual interest, and bookcases with adjustable shelves are great storage solutions. 

4. Make sure you have good illumination
Combine task lighting with mood lighting to balance style with practicality. 

5. Introduce "warm" elements 
Examples: mood board, chic rug, art on the walls, funky stationery and potted plants will instantly brighten up the space.
