As a general matter, this is perfectly legal, and not even uncommon--for example, I use my home address for a legal editorial services business I have. Here are, however, some issues to consider:
1) If you are a homeowner, check zoning for your address: is the type of business you are running allowed in your zoning? Usually it is, for the types of business you could, as a practical matter, run at home, but it's good to check.
2) If you are renting, you have comply with you lease, so if your lease prohibits this, you may not do it.
3) If the business involves any liability risk or has clients or workers coming to your home, regular homeowner's or renter's insurance will most likely not apply; you will likely need to buy commercial insurance to protect yourself.
