This white modern credenza is a simple design accented by the unique pieces of art mounted above it. A bright coral wall makes the white credenza pop from the background. Art, personal pictures and bright yellow flowers personalize 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.
The sleek built-in desk is paired with Ghost armchairs for a modern home office in this Santa Ana, Costa Rica home. Floor-to-ceiling glass walls provide beautiful views of the outdoors and allow the natural surroundings to be a part of the space.
Light wood floors and a soft color palette contrast nicely with dark shelving and wall frames in this modern home office. Low natural light is countered with recessed lights and a contemporary floor lamp.
Steel curtain hardware travels across the wall to become an industrial-style art display. The glass desk is on wheels so that it is easily shifted out of the way when the home office is needed as an extra guest room.
Horizontal windows above the gray, built-in corner desk let in natural light and offer a beautiful treetop view. Drawers and cabinets offer plenty of storage space, keeping the desk surface clutter-free.
"This garage remodel was designed for a UCLA professor who wanted a stylish home office," says Ron Cohen, CEO of Pearl Remodeling. "Because of zoning restrictions at the time of the remodel, we could not legally convert the garage into a living space, so we kept the garage door operational and updated the interior so it could still be enjoyed as a workspace. We installed new drywall on all walls and ceiling, and light-colored flooring and paint to brighten up the room. Open shelving with complementary decor give this study a modern touch with lots of room to personalize the space."
In designing his backyard home office/writing studio, Marco Morelli went with a warm but dramatic look. He chose Studio Shed's corrugated steel panels and Collins Block siding to sheath his shed's exterior. The red exterior complements and contrasts with his home's creamy yellow exterior. Once their shed was in place, the Morellis added a path, vegetable beds and play area.
