We're big believers that interior design influences your mood, so think it's essential that a home office feels empowering. The rich dark tones and traditional pieces in this space make it feel established, leaving you feeling confident and ready to impress in your next Zoom call.
An office needs to be highly functional but that doesn't mean the design has to suffer. A neutral office with a Mid Century spin adds the perfect balance of function and beauty. Keeping the color pallet neutral and warm allows for the space to seem open and bright creating a light and airy office that is sure to promote productivity.
For those who have a standard rectangular or square living room layout, you can easily rearrange one wall to incorporate a workspace for homeschooling that’s in line with the rest of your decor. Rather than section off your office area, this is all about integrating it into your room.
If you want to reinvent your home office space to optimize efficiencies, you may want to pair the layout down to a few fundamental pieces. We stuck with a simple desk, a comfy and practical chair, and some closed storage in this space. Now we have everything neatly organized and easy to find with no unnecessary knick-knacks cluttering the room (or our minds). Just make sure that when you go this minimal to pick pieces with strong silhouettes to keep things from feeling boring.
Elevate your WFH set-up by mixing furniture with a variety of historical influences. Here, a traditional spindle-leg desk is paired with a mid-century-modern chair and contemporary bookcase for an effect that feels distinct and finely curated and will stand the test of time.
This large master bedroom is fitted with a spacious sleeping area and a complete office nook. While it is ideal to have the work area totally separate from the resting space, we have created a soft buffer in the space with the wide bench along with the window that touches into each zone. This helps the space to feel unified, while also creating a subtle border between the two areas.
Whether you need a shared home office for two or just need a little extra space to spread out, this is a great set-up. We arranged it as a co-working office space, perfect for side-by-side work or collaborating. The desk, with its smokey wood finish, has a rustic vibe—but the way its legs angle slightly outward gives it a more modern form. AKA, it’s the perfect combination of modern and rustic elements.
