Sitting down to work doesn't sound half bad when your office is decorated with some of the most stylish IKEA hacks around. A marble-topped desk, ombre storage, and hand-painted paper files will brighten up your workspace, while adding some much-needed storage. And thanks to IKEA prices, you can afford to try them without too much commitment.

Adding a midas touch to an ALEX desk is another stylish option. Find out how to decorate the inside of the drawers, too, on Personally Andrea.

A tiny STUVA dresser is just the right size to tuck next to a desk. Jen of iheart Organizing gave the drawer fronts an ombre update and added gold label plates.

The wonders of marble contact paper never cease to amaze me. The stylists at Livet Hemma used a roll of this magic material to make a $60 trestle desk look like a million bucks.
