Like the rest of the home, the office is filled with art to keep Tze inspired on the days when she works from home. This raised desk was a DIY gift to her husband who, at 6’5”, is too tall for most standing desks.
This minimalistic home office features a standing desk positioned in front of the stunning Chicago cityscape. An Eames-style chair offers a comfortable place to kick back, while a sleek white filing cabinet provides plenty of room for office essentials.
Katie Ridder's "Leaf" wallpaper in green adds a "squeeze of lime" to make work less of a chore in this home office. The stylish desktops are mechanized to transform from a sitting desk to a standing desk to suit the homeowner's preference for the day.
The home office space needed to have plenty of storage and function, so designers added a lacquer and stained oak custom built-in unit with open shelving, cabinets and drawers, as well as a usable workspace for the desktop computer. When the computer is not in use, the free-standing desk provides another work space. To warm up the space and create a contrast from the monochromatic colors, designers brought in a brown, swivel, office chair for a comfy place to sit.
Nestling a desk against a wall is a smart way to make the most of a low, sloped ceiling — it's just the right height to sit but not stand. The desk is also built around a radiator, a strategy for keeping the old home's original elements in tact. Jewel-toned accents make the teen room feel a little more grown-up.
At once traditional and contemporary, this small home office combines the best of both styles. Glossy blue paint freshens up traditional cabinetry. A pop-up laptop and keyboard stand frees up valuable desk space.
A dark wood desk doubles as a nightstand beside this white bed. A bedside lamp in the same color as the wall blends seamlessly with the wall, not detracting from the beautiful wood desk or adjacent headboard. An upholstered gray headboard softens the space and allows the white bedding to stand out in the space.
The homeowners needed an office in their new space, so designers created one that was as modern and elegant as the rest of the home. Within the space, there is plenty of storage with standing cabinets on one side of the desk, upper and lower cabinets in the rear of the space, and with the lower cabinets, designers gave the space an additional desk so there is plenty of flat work space. For the finishing touch, they decorated with statues and artwork that tie this space into the modern design of the rest of the home.
Patterned wallpaper on the ceiling and the patterned flooring stands out against the surrounding neutral walls. A creative desk is made from two small cabinets and a glass top below a damask valance. A white chandelier draws the eye up, highlighting the valance and ceiling design.
This light and bright home office features a stylish sitting area with teal velvet sofas, a long metal coffee table and patterned area rug. A floating wooden TV stand is positioned under the flat screen television, while a desk area is located next to the window.
Updating vintage furniture is often as simple as painting it in a new, fresh color palette. The two-tone finish on the writing desk looks fresh and sophisticated. Looking for a way to make your collectibles stand out? Line the back of ordinary bookshelves with a graphic fabric or wallpaper.
Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines created a new laundry and mudroom for the homeowners, complete with plenty of storage cabinets and shelving as well as a desk that double as a folding surface. A chalkboard backsplash will come in handy for taking notes and a metal letter "P" stands for "Purks". Brick floors were installed for a durable yet attractive look, as seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.
