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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
