Turning left off the foyer leads guests into a private study, where they'll find tall, built-in bookshelves, an original fireplace and a traditional wood desk with two chairs. Although the space is now used as an office for reading and catching up on work, one only needs to observe the crown molding and baseboards to picture the parlor that it once was.
The ordinary bookshelves in this home office are lined with graphic fabric to give them a punch of color and pizzazz. The desk is a vintage piece painted with a two-tone finish for a more modern look. Details like the lucite chair and starburst mirror pull this transitional home office together, creating a stunning one-of-a-kind workspace.
This beautiful Spanish hacienda is decorated in simple neutrals and warm woods. To add color, cobalt blue is used throughout the home. Here, in the home office, the hue is introduced through a diamond-patterned area rug, pillows and Mexican tile fireplace surround. A traditional wooden desk with turned legs is paired with a more contemporary leather chair to give the workspace an updated look.
Deep blue trim frames this bright and stylish girl's bedroom as well as matches the built in shelf unit covering one wall. A raspberry pink stripe on the ceiling, upholstered desk bench, throw pillow and small decorative details create a beautiful pop of accent color throughout the room. The gray carpet and chair keeps the room looking light without using a monochromatic white palette.
In this functional upstairs landing, various areas provide spots for dining, working and entertaining. At the top of the stairs to the left, floating shelves and a built-in desk create a cozy home office nook. Nearby, dark cabinetry and dark floating shelves characterize the built-in bar. Meanwhile, a loft-like landing offers space for a modern bistro table and four chairs, creating a fun area for dining or playing games.
This green bedroom has a lively design perfect for a little rockstar. The vibrant green wall color is highlighted with black stripes and the zebra print comforter make this an eye-catching space. A desk at the foot of the bed provides a workspace and added storage and a chair in the corner is perfect for relaxing. A storage unit of cubbies next to the bed adds space for light and more storage containers.
This multi-functional space perfectly fits the family perfectly. A comfy, gray sectional, upholstered ottoman and playful striped slipper chair create the TV viewing area, while brass étagères flank a coordinating TV console house metallic woven baskets that act as toy storage for the kiddos. Finally, a cream lacquered and brass desk was placed against the back of the chaise sectional where the homeowners can catch up on work while their kids watch a movie or play within eyesight.
This elegant, eclectic studio makes the most of its space. In the far corner, a home office sits with a modern desk and rolling chair. Behind that, a sitting area gives the tenant a place to entertain, while the living room, sandwiched in the middle of the space has a large leather sofa with a chaise lounge to maximize seating potential. A breakfast cart and small table provide a place for the tenant to enjoy her meals.
No luxury closet would be complete without a makeup table, and this beautiful contemporary dressing room is no exception. The mirrored surface of the table adds to the elegance of the space, while small chandeliers hang on either side of the dresser to light the work station. Mirrored drawers sit atop the makeup table to provide storage for the homeowner's beauty necessities, and the luxurious chair placed at the desk allows this homeowner to get ready in style.
The office is where Camille works from home. The space is flooded with light with windows that look out onto the home’s front lawn. The window trim has been painted in a crisp blue, a perfect fit with the home’s pink and blue color palette. A desk with turned legs brings some traditional style home. Camille is great at mixing styles, and a modern Eames office chair in white fits seamlessly into the space. A retreat for the couple’s puppy also fits into the home office decor.
Atlanta designer Julie Holloway calls her signature style "bomoco" for its blend of bohemian, modern and country. There are plenty of design tips to incorporate into your own space, from the soft pastels of an Oriental rug that soften the seagrass rug underneath (and dispense with the need for a rug pad) to the whimsical art dead-center above the headboard to the imaginative mix of old and new in the acrylic chair combined with a rustic wooden desk used as a nightstand here.
Aside from the kitchen, Chris planned to spend the least amount of money on his second bedroom, which would be used as an office. Taking the advice of a designer friend, he had the room painted in a blue-grey tone from Sherwin-Williams called Krypton and had custom draperies in a modern print made from a clearance bin fabric at $11.99 per yard. Since his laptop is pretty much the only thing he needs to work from home, the room was simply furnished with a vintage desk picked up from an antique market for $600 and paired with a black woven grass chair from IKEA that was $59. To soften the area underfoot, he installed FLOR tiles in a striped pattern, alternating each tile for a parquet look.
