Its vibe: Glamorous, empowering and smart
Why this pink home office is a winner: This home office proves that pink isn’t just for little girls. The floor to ceiling pink drapery, pink sofa and powerful pink chair work together to create a stylish home office that exudes confidence and elegance. Plus, lack of natural light and fresh air can leave you feeling sluggish, so the abundance of windows in this pinktastic office is a major bonus.
Its vibe: Fun, powerful and practical
Why this pink home office is a winner: We’re impressed that this home office is simple and economical yet beautifully bold. A yard sale table is covered with a stunning hue of high-gloss pink and transformed into the office centerpiece, a wall is coated with chalk paint and becomes a useful message center, and an affordable Poppy plant soften the room. Best yet, the black and white damask chair will make this office worker feel like a queen all day long. Hurray to the designer who created a home office that can be replicated on a budget!

Why this pink home office is a winner: The soft pink floral motif of this home office will calm you on your most frazzled days. In addition to offering serenity, this office also boasts plenty of valuable desk space and a work table. An amazing DIY design tip this home office offers is the fabric colored cork board.

Its vibe: Positive, inspiring and whimsical
Why this pink home office is a winner: This cheerful home office will have you walking on sunshine! We adore this home office because of its eye-catching pink and yellow color combination and the way it makes use of an otherwise empty corner. And anytime a drab, dull dresser becomes a chic hot desk we can’t help but be impressed! Tip: If you refurbish a dresser or desk, have a piece of glass cut to cover the top. It’s an inexpensive way to give the furniture a finished look that also protects the desk from damage.
Its vibe: Calm, confident and welcoming
Why this pink home office is a winner: We cherish this home office because it uses pink as an accent color, confirming that a pop of pink is all that’s needed to make a major statement. We also appreciate that the expensive looking, gold embellished storage unit was once a plain (inexpensive) white Ikea dresser and that cool stripped drapery is really a fabric shower curtain.
