Breathe easier knowing you can combine work and play. This office-slash-craft room makeover is a great example of how to make one space work for both your creative and work needs. We love how this desk is split in two—all the crafting (and adult coloring) supplies you could ever need on one side, and the perfect office setup on the other.

3. Elegant Pops of Pattern & Color
If more muted colors are your thing, bring creativity into your room with fun patterns like the striped walls and swirly rug in this elegant office space. We love the subtle pops of color from the desktop and chair in this room! Don’t be afraid play around with different pattern and color combinations, especially when keeping the overall design on the subtle side.

All white furniture? No problem! You can still create a vibrant creative space. Pair simple furniture with one or two accent colors (like the yellow and gray used here) to create a cohesive but still playful environment perfect for working from home or breaking out your adult coloring book at the end of a long day.
