  • Botanical style home office

    Create a home office space that feels organic, and your work will flow…well, that’s the theory. Here, a light-filled room is enhanced by a modular shelving-come-plant display. Rich, fuchsia accents, such as a velvety rug and floral upholstery, bring depth to ground the verdant design cues.

  • Playful home office with industrial vibe

    This home office area leading on from a kitchen has not one but three purposes. Firstly, it is a handy home office for adults but then, also, thanks to clever storage has a homework area and library corner for children. Separate desks have been arranged on opposite walls to keep important paperwork and technology separate while picture rails stacked with books and colourful bean bag below completes the cosy reading nook.

  • Super chic home office with designer chair and desk

  • Fresh white home office with floral fabrics

    Use pattern sparingly in a home office to keep the overall feel calm. Paint walls and furniture white, then build in colour with a blind and cushion in pretty vintage print fabrics. Cube shelves – lined with a wallpaper featuring large-scale blooms – give the pale backdrop balance. The stylish storage also makes additional space for stationery, books and photo frames, keeping your desk uncluttered for productivity.

  • Pale mint home office with wooden desk and lamp

    Soft oak is the ideal partner for minty tones – use simple furniture, wooden accessories and tactile rattan to add a natural touch. Make it mellower for the winter season with accents of navy blue and soft purple.

  • Rustic garden room home office with neat blinds and modern desk

    Make use of an unused alcove. This space overlooks the garden, making it an ideal spot for a study area. Opting for a pared-back desk and simple seating means that the work space won’t intrude on the rest of the room. The neat blinds screen out bright sunlight, while a clamped lamp is a versatile choice.

    Turning a spare corner into a useful office nook utilises every space within another room. Slim file draws keep paperwork hidden while a brightly-coloured desk lamp and striped cushion add hits of fun colour. A mix of colourful fabrics and accessories brings this scheme to life.

  • 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.

  • Stylish home office with dramatic dark-grey walls

This monochrome design complements the grey paint, while adding a little drama of its own.
