Ana Donahue designed this home office with exotic artifacts, distressed furniture, and richly patterned wallpaper and an upholstered chair. A mix of oranges and grays give this eclectic room a fun, funky feeling.
The vision for this home office was a contemporary, functional space with room for the children to sit and read. The walnut cabinets provide a richness to the space and are the prominent architectural feature. The light countertops add a crisp airiness to accentuate the walnut without deterring from the color and patterns on the floor and accessories.
Touches of whimsy keep this dark, traditional study from taking itself seriously. A modern, ethereal photograph is juxtaposed with collected antiquities displayed on rough-hewn shelves. A contemporary take on a Greek key pattern is playful when paired with a Louis XIV fauteuil chair.
Gray and Black Contemporary Office and Sitting Space
Light gray walls contrast the dark wood floor in this contemporary office and sitting space creating a clean and sleek look. A silver and blue rug breaks up the dark floor and pads the contemporary metal desk. Black leather furniture provides seating in front of the unique hexagonal wall indention.
Wooden Desk With Contemporary Chair and Antique Phone
A gray wall, with a painted quote, supports this ribbed wooden desk with a matching traditional chair. A vintage phone and chrome lamp sit in front of propped, framed contemporary artwork that adds red and orange hues to the dark tones.
Utilize a small area in the bedroom or hallway as a workspace when a dedicated home office room isn't available. A simple white desk doesn't overwhelm a small space, and a floating shelf provides extra storage when floor space is scarce.
Comfortable Armchair in Masculine, Contemporary Home Office
A mix of patterns and textures creates visual interest and tactile appeal in this contemporary meets masculine home office. A grid-patterned armchair and ottoman pair with a navy-and-white plaid rug, while the entire room features gray grasscloth wall coverings.
French doors were added to create an airy, yet private home office. The walls were painted a medium gray and bright linen window treatments create soft, natural mood. The room is staged with a traditional desk and chair. Topiaries, old books, and a map set the mood for creative exploration.
This contemporary gray home office has sprawling city views with a large sitting area. The woven ottoman adds texture to the space and the striped rug parallels the beamed ceiling, making this well-designed space alluring and inviting.
