    Neutral home office

    Make your workspace calm with layers of plain and patterned neutrals lifted with shots of hot orange. The simple desk has timeless appeal, while a plain bookshelf and large storage boxes are ideal for clearing away books and other home office clutter. A roman blind adds life to the large window without being too garish and distracting behind the desk.
