  • Black and white home office with iconic image and Eames chair

    Add some radical chic in a home office with a mirror emblazoned with an iconic print. To keep things further off the straight and narrow, a little psychedelic swirl on the floor wouldn’t go amiss. Here, whitewashed walls and floorboards make the perfect backdrop for two-tone furniture and accessories.

  • Woodland-themed home office with wooden storage crates

    Upcycle rustic storage. Make a shelf unit from wooden crates and paint in spring shades of eco-friendly paint. Wooden crates don’t have to be expensive and even less than perfect ones are easy to make pretty and practical. A set of stencils, a tester pot of paint, a stencil brush and a steady hand is all you need to make it pretty.



  • Home office with origami and craft display

    Learn origami and cover boxes and envelopes with the prettiest papers, tapes and kits. Dressmaking, calligraphy and paper folding are the hot pastimes this season. Make your space unique to you with journals, plants and inspiring postcards.

  • 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.

  • Contemporary home office with wooden wall and cork noticeboard

    Wood is a good material of choice for walls. It makes such an unexpected statement when it is used across a whole wall. Keep the look contemporary by pairing wood with industrial-style lighting, cork and stone. A neutral palette throughout ensures that the space is at one with nature.

  • White home office with stone flooring and artist's drawings

    Add extra interest to white walls with plenty of modern artwork. This stylish home office with its array of bespectacled cats and plenty of black and white contrasts is the perfect artist’s work space. Rustic flagstone flooring adds an industrial element to this largely contemporary room, while built-in cabinets above the desk area provide essential storage for books, files and various paraphernalia.

  • Home office with box-shelf display

    Put your favourite pieces on show in a tranquil spot where you can truly appreciate them. Open box shelving works equally well for objects and trinkets as it does for books – or perhaps you could try a combination of both. Stick to white shelving so that it’s hardly noticeable and what stands out is the colour of your much-loved pieces.

  • 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.

  • Stylish home office with dramatic dark-grey walls

    Turn your home office into a room you will enjoy spending time in – it needn’t be just a functional space with your laptop at a desk. Dark walls create a stunning backdrop for bright accessories, which are the perfect way to inject some personality into a room. Think about the flooring, too. This monochrome design complements the grey paint, while adding a little drama of its own.

  • Modern home office with red striped curtains and patterned rug

    If you don’t have a whole room to dedicate to an office, a well defined work area within another room will ensure you can still exercise your creativity. The elegant lines of a contemporary desk complement the light setting of a bay window. Office storage that co-ordinates with your scheme is a pretty and practical decorative touch. Striped curtains add a fun and playful element to this modern room.

  • Corner home office with compact desk and wall-hung light

    Fit a small but perfectly formed desk into an unused corner and you can incorporate a work space into any room. A wall-hung task light helps to keep more desktop space free for working. Think about hanging a small shelf unit on the wall too so you can easily stow away stationery and filing, but still keep everything you need within reach.
