Against this home office's olive green walls, wood floating shelves are a warm, inviting contrast. On them, artwork is intermixed with books, sculpture and houseplants for a look that's casual and compelling.
This breezy, beachy and traditional space serves as a home office and reading room. A built-in desk unit offers ample storage and provides maximum function in this narrow corner niche. The color palette reflects the home's coastal locale and sets a relaxing mood. Window shades give the homeowner flexibility and control with privacy and natural light.
Making the most of every nook, the landing at the top of the stairs is turned into a simple home office. A round graphic area rug adds style underfoot, and a classic armchair is paired with a traditional desk.
This home office's high beadboard wainscoting carries over into the design of the room's built-in cabinets. A window seat tucked between the two cabinets serves as a practical use of space, providing extra seating for visitors.
Home Office Features Indigo Polka-Dot Wallpaper and Memo Board
A memo board wrapped in fabric that complements the colors and pattern of the St. Frank's Indigo Dots wallpaper offers a perfect spot for displaying mementos, postcards and favorite snapshots in the woman's home office at the 2017 San Francisco Decorator Showcase. Designer Kari McIntosh selected St. Frank's Indigo Dots wallpaper and a sunburst mirror to create a rich design setting symbolizing the relationship between the heavens and Earth.
Study Draws Inspiration From Stevie Nicks' "White Witch" Persona
Designer Ian Stallings channeled Stevie Nicks and her "White Witch" persona when creating the upstairs study at the 2016 San Francisco Decorator Showcase. A crystal ball and crow skulls rest upon the desk, while the colorful ceiling harkens to lyrics from Fleetwood Mac's "Gypsy" ..."To a room with some lace and paper flowers."
A simple black desk is paired with a classic T-back wooden chair and contemporary blue table lamp for an updated traditional style. The desk is placed looking out the window so that the homeowners can enjoy views while getting some work done.
Traditional Home Office Desk and Wood Armchairs with Upholstered Cushions
A room in the 2013 Atlanta Decorators Show House, a showcase of more than 30 spaces transformed by designers from around the Southeast. Cinnamon colored grasscloth wallpaper provides a warm backdrop to the cozy seating area in the office.
The focal point of this traditional home office is the large wall of windows framed with a transitional box pleat drapery valance and panels. Two leather chairs with matching leather ottomans provide seating, making the rich tones in caramel, chocolate and wheat the perfect complement to old world charm.
