Position your office chair to be in clear view of everything you need to inspire your next global excursion. This neutral and somewhat masculine home office is part Indiana Jones, part Captain Scott, but has gentle flourishes, such as delicate entomology illustrations and plants potted up in glass vessels, to keep it warm and inviting. A plain white bookcase is softened with wicker and rattan drawers and a mixture of travel paraphernalia, and the woven wastebasket takes on a new life as a map-holder.
