Floral curtains and a white Scandinavian-style desk and chair create a fresh, light study area. Built-in bookshelves make the most of space, while a Perspex magazine rack and a gilded mirror side table add a modern twist and a chandelier glamour.
Maximise space for hobbies and crafts with clever ideas for storage. Make a cheerful sewing area with pretty fabrics, bright storage tins, box files and glass jars. Make the most of natural light, particularly for intricate sewing, by positioning your table next to the window. Open shelving keeps all you need close to hand but make sure everything is neatly stacked.
This desk area features a prettily carved, painted table and a vintage chair. Stone floors and a woven rug soften the look, while monochrome prints and paintings add interest in this relaxed home office.
The latest Indian-inspired wallpapers and luxurious pattened weaves create character and personality in a room. In rich shades this style is about confident colour. Add an antique-style desk to complete the look.
