Inspired by post-war simplicity and the beauty of natural shapes and materials, mid-century modern is the perfect choice for serene 21st-century homes. Follow our five easy steps to create the same serene feel in your home office space – whatever you use the room for.
We’ve picked the furniture, accessories, room layout and colour scheme for the ultimate mid-century haven – which has a fresh and contempoary feel with classic accents. The result is a comfortable stylish space to work, with bags of storage and style.
Mid-century classic pieces are often found at antique fairs and secondhand shops, but if your budget doesn't quite stretch this far, look out for warm wood furniture and light accessories to lift your office space.
Team warm wood tones with a cooler contrast, like this dusky duck-egg colour, on the walls - it brings out the depth of the natural wood grain. When layering wood on wood keep it simple, this will have more impact than mixing in accessories in other colour finishes.
