Traditional desk area with red patterned wallpaper

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.

Monochrome home office with bold geometric wallpaper

Striking geometric wallpaper creates an enclosed, intimate feel in a home office space. Create even more impact by choosing open shelving that lets the pattern show through. The use of charcoal linen on classic upholstered pieces brings these traditional designs up to date, and completes the smart, tailored look.

Functional home office nook

Functional home office 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!

Home-office corner with traditional desk and blue table lamp

Home-office corner with traditional desk and blue table lamp

You don’t need to dedicate a whole room to a home office. Requisition a corner in a living or bedroom and bring in a smart desk and comfortable chair for a laid-back but practical working space. Hanging a large piece of artwork above the desk will help the corner to feel demarcated from the space around it.

Moody-blue study with white flooring

Moody-blue home office with white flooring

Use a deep navy-blue paint in a chalky matt finish to create a warm, immersive effect in a space that you want to feel calm and relaxing. Pair with white and pale-wood furniture to stop it being oppressive, and choose a rug in paler, complementary blues to ‘lift’ the scheme into something exceptional. This watercolour-style beauty really looks the part.

Neutral home office with black accessories

Make a home office that appeals to both head and heart, with warm wood and artwork for a creative feel and black details for a businesslike, masculine edge to your work space. Keep black for key pieces so that they command attention. Go for pieces that need space to breathe, such as a lamp, chair or curvy vase.
