Many people don’t have the luxury of separate spaces for a home office and guest bedroom. But this room is proof that a multi-purpose space like this can be quite chic! Tucking your desk under built-in shelves creates a distinct workspace. And opting for a daybed rather than a traditional bed makes the space feel less dual-purpose when not hosting guests.
Do you and your partner both need at-home work stations? And space to host guests? And only have one room in your house to spare for all these uses? Relax — you can create a multi-purpose room that suites all these needs. For hosting guests, opt for a daybed for day-to-day versatility. Then place desks across the room from each other so you each have your own workspace — but opt for matching chairs for a more cohesive look.
This shared home office is filled with lively styling that will keep you and your live-in workmate energized throughout the work day. The fun sense of pattern manages to feel tasteful thanks to a smart and subtle black and tan color palette.
One of the great things about working from home is the being able to choose the decor that really works for you. That's why we love the all the bold style of the angular desk and the vertical lines of the slender bookcase.
This shared home office is brimming over with bold and dynamic design. Elements like the abstract wall art throughout the design move your eye around the room and create a energetic sense of rhythm which will keep you whistling while you work.
Wondering how to make a gorgeous window view the focal point of your room? In this contemporary office, the answer was simply to leave it wide open, front and center. Don't put anything in front of it! Let the furniture surround the view as a frame.
A stunning gallery wall becomes a feature behind the desk. The abstract black artwork over a white background, and framed by shiny golden frames under glass, compose a state of the art piece that emphasizes the contemporary look. This playfully designed bookcase will bring youth and style to this office. White veneer cubes appear as if they are floating within the gold frame for a light and airy look. Pair in multiples for dramatic effect.
Using a bold rug in a space can be tricky, especially when choosing other items to incorporate in the space to not compete with each other. Make sure you are picking colors that are present in both pieces. An example of this would be pulling some of your favorite colors out of the rug and making sure the busy and bold art you are using has the same color tones.
Form follows function and nowhere is that more apparent than in a sculpted chair that anticipates the curves of the human body. These biomorphic egg chairs allow shaping fluid curves, and single-piece molded shells provide extra comfort and an embracing feel. The sheepskin rug under the relaxing nook is perfect for creating a warm and inviting space.
Contemporary artwork filled with soft pastel hues inspired us to select an accent chair in a blush hue to complement the space. A monochromatic look can feel dimensional when paired with contrasting neutrals, like the metal in the floor lamp and the wood on the desk.
