Classic home office in rich colours

With a home office like this, you’ll be inspired to tackle any job that’s thrown at you. The rich walnut desk and deep blue walls have more than a hint of Mad Men retro glamour. Keep accessories bold but simple – a single piece of oversized artwork, an eye-catching table lamp and an impressive framed picture. With this look, confidence is key.

Create a warm festive look in your home office or study area. Here hints of plain red make a pleasing counterbalance to the mix of toile, checks and stripes. It’s easy to vary the mood of this look with elements such as the loose
chair cover and red lampshade, which can be changed to create a sense of
seasonality.

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.

Choose energising colours for your home office such as this vibrant yellow, with bold blue chairs. If you want to create a workspace that’s large enough for two people to work alongside each other, use a large dining table as a desk, as this will leave plenty of space for chairs.

This home office area leading on from a kitchen has not one but three purposes. Firstly, it is a handy home office for adults but then, also, thanks to clever storage has a homework area and library corner for children. Separate desks have been arranged on opposite walls to keep important paperwork and technology separate while picture rails stacked with books and colourful bean bag below completes the cosy reading nook.

Stick to the task in hand with a simple, but stylish, home office such as this. The slender lines of the streamlined furniture and task lighting looks smart, while (visually) taking up minimal space. Hanging an artwork about the desk creates the sense of this space having a purpose and function – it’s not just a desk in an empty corner!

Fresh white home office with floral fabrics

Use pattern sparingly in a home office to keep the overall feel calm. Paint walls and furniture white, then build in colour with a blind and cushion in pretty vintage print fabrics. Cube shelves – lined with a wallpaper featuring large-scale blooms – give the pale backdrop balance. The stylish storage also makes additional space for stationery, books and photo frames, keeping your desk uncluttered for productivity.
