“I call it my ‘horse girl office.’ I redid my work space to reflect everything I loved as a child — my favorite books, Breyer horses, ribbons I won at horse shows, and photos of horses. It gives me joy every time I work.” — Brittany

“Behind me is my boyfriend in our soundproof booth. Normal, right? We moved in together during the pandemic, and working remotely in our loft was hard. Then we heard that our neighbor was conveniently selling this booth! It’s an eyesore, but it saves us. We make faces and wave to each other during work calls.” — Brittany

“We already have a dog (Wally) and cat (Potato), but my husband and I also foster dogs while working from home. Pictured here is what we refer to as ‘Potato’s Town Hall,’ in which he makes a case to send everyone back to the office.” — Miki

“I’m a clinical psychologist who became 100% virtual during the pandemic. I started working in our extra bedroom, but then we welcomed a baby girl. Although I thought about renting a space, I wasn’t ready to give up the sweet moments of seeing her between sessions. So, our bathroom became my new office! I’m sure I’ll look back on this chaotic time and wonder what the heck I was thinking, but I wouldn’t change it for a second.” — Sara

“I’ve dreamed of having a library room, ever since I was a little girl. Once I accepted a work-from-home ‘forever job,’ it was time to take the plunge. Having the bookcase as my video call background is a definite flex, but it’s also a great conversation starter.” — Adrian

“My 10-year-old son and I live in a small two-bedroom condo. I work on my laptop at the dining table from morning until evening. One day, my son decided to lead his own ‘very important business meeting’ with his friends.” — Cameron

“After finishing my first full year running my own business, Ham Council, my friends surprised me with a neon sign of my company logo, and now my pottery studio is PERFECT! The light is the first thing I turn on and the last thing I turn off. It makes me feel incredible.” — Britt

“I work in my son’s old bedroom. He’s 24 now, but we still have his Sports Illustrated covers on the wall from high school. Taking them down and repainting this room is on my list for 2023!” — Bethany

“The best thing about my work-from-home space is my co-worker, Milton. My ‘office’ is our home’s entryway. It’s the chilliest, most leaf-strewn part of our house. But I like my view of the neighborhood, and I’m so happy with this space.” — Brittany

“In 2020, I was a new mom, working, and attending graduate school part time to get my master’s in public health. Here, I’m writing my final paper. To the left is my sister/roomie/all-around badass who had just worked a night shift as a resident physician, plus my trusty haakaa breast pump. To the right is the adorable tiny human I made. Not pictured is my mom, who flew up two weeks after baby girl was born to make this all possible.” — Georgia

Thank you so much everyone! We love you! xoxo
