Chill vibes, lo-fi beats, coffee, blankets, and gaming on a rainy Sunday. That’s what this is all about.
If you’re setting up your perfect relaxation station we have inspiration from all over. I love how each setup has a unique aesthetic but ultimately still arrives at cozy.
Small, meaningful knick-knacks and decor each give a little bit of love. Whether it’s flowers, a plush kitten, or a small glass mushroom, each adds to the warmth of the environment. So pay attention to all the little details in each setup.
1. Sunset Vibes

Soft colors and light illumination. You get comfy and cozy with a mix of unicorn ice-cream flavor. Notice how she has an accent of pure white, from the shelves, to the chair, to the desk pad. But it’s contrasted with greens from the various plants. Finally, a touch of rich browns and wood-grain desktops and carpet (and a cozy throw blanket).
2. Pink and Kawaii

Do you really like pink? Kitsunepeony has the pink gaming setup on lock. You might say it’s Kawaii, which is a japanese term for cute or lovable. Also a strong love for Genshin Impact and Pokemon. There’s a lot of attention to detail here. From the mouse and keyboard, to the Nintendo Switch skin, to the bunny ears on the chair.
3. Cozy Gaming with some Plant life

A little greenery really livens up the place, without it your setup can look sterile and plain. According to this study out of Japan, having a desk plant actually lowers stress and improves mental health.
4. Brown and White Aeshetic

I love the brown and white pin boards with the white shelves (and appropriately colored shelf decor). I feel like every time in this picture was carefully selected and I kind of love it.
Don’t forget the mushroom stool and cloud wrist rest. And the beautiful PC build with pink fan LEDs.
5. It’s Always Autumn

I just want to sit here and drink a hot coffee on a chilly October morning.
Love the cute art on the walls, with wood grain shelf and brown candles, and the lovely 65% mechanical keyboard. The desktop wallpaper is what brings this whole thing together.
6. Clean and ready to be productive

All white everything, with a touch of mint and lavender. And not to mention, the birch tabletop to add a little depth. It’s easy on the eyes but makes you feel like you could be ultra-productive.
7. Just Peachy

Peach walls and shelves, and white computer accessories. But my favorite is looking at all the little meaningful items that decorate the space. Each bit of decor matches the theme, but has a small story behind it.
8. O’ Natural

Down to earth vibes that make you feel like chilling in a cottage after a day of foraging. Perfect for all my Minecraft or Stardew Valley fans.
9. Lavender Vibes

It’s interesting how just a few items can really transform a space into a cozy environment. The flower deskpad and colorful cards make this a lovely space to chill. Some small lavender colored plants and back lighting. Perfection.
10. Even more Pink

Remember the all-pink setup from earlier? Well, this is the new and improved setup from the same creator. But still the same commitment to pink.
11. Cherry wood and Forest Green
If the pink setup was a little too hard on the eyes, this will be like mountain fresh air. The accent here is a forest green, which I absolutely love. Green Switch, green controller, green desk pad, and green turtle.
12. Birch Productivity Station

Not only do I love the bright and modern feel of this, I love the practicality. It looks so organized, and everything is within reach. If you ever felt the need to run an Etsy store, I feel like this would be where you got all your important stuff done.
13. Feelings of Home

While there’s no distinct theme here, it’s still cozy and inviting. And a lot if it has to do with just making it your own space. Add little figurines, a cute desk pad, some art, and some reminders that everything is chill. Bonus points for the leafy drapes.
14. Green Hills

I absolutely love the green theme here, the lily desk pad makes this whole thing work. Not to mention the Yoshi egg and the subtle Sailor Moon references. And the mushroom stool. Can’t forget the mushroom stool.
