Modern pendants and a geometric rug add a super-contemporary flavour to this traditional room.

Study area with exposed brick wall

Study area with exposed brick wall

Furnish your study with natural materials for a warm look that’s more homely than ‘officey’. Modern desks are often fashioned out of man-made materials, so the wood desk here has an innately traditional feel. However, an exposed brick wall, lightbulb desk lamp and black and white prints make it thoroughly contemporary, not to mention interesting.

Study with distinctive bookshelf

Sophisticated study with a bold bookshelf

For a productive working home office space, solid, accessible storage is a must-have and what better way to store than a sturdy bookshelf. To give it some character, lining the back of a bookshelf is a simple but effective way of introducing a distinctive accent to a room. Here, raffia provides a tactile contrast to the deep blue-black of the walls.

White Scandi-style home office natural wood accents

White Scandi-style home office natural wood accents

Create a functional but inviting workspace with a simple, white scheme softened with accents of warm wood. If possible, position your desk so it faces a window – this will give you maximum light for reading paper documents, while minimising glare on your computer screen. A good blind is essential for controlling light and blocking outside distractions when you need to get your head down and concentrate.
