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.

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.

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.

Yellow home office with modern blue chairs

Yellow home office with modern blue chairs

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.

Playful home office with industrial vibe

Playful home office with industrial vibe

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.

Fresh white home office with floral fabrics

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.

Make use of an unused alcove. This space overlooks the garden, making it an ideal spot for a study area. Opting for a pared-back desk and simple seating means that the work space won’t intrude on the rest of the room. The neat blinds screen out bright sunlight, while a clamped lamp is a versatile choice.
