Modern Home Office with Metallic Accents
A mid-century storage unit keeps plenty of books, toys and supplies hidden while still looking stylish. A white metal desk paired with a Tolix-style chair provides a homework spot with the addition of some fun accessories like the black pharmacy lamp and dice container.
Pattern and texture bring layers of interest to this small and functional home office, from the herringbone wood floors to the paneled accent wall. A red desk chair stands out as the main hit of color in the clean, modern space.
Though it's awash in browns with hunting lodge touches, this home office manages to maintain a modern vibe. Clean-lined draperies are hung on a thin, contemporary rod, and a narrow dresser serves as a modern TV console.
A rustic wood wall and brightly colored chairs give this modern home office a playful, kid-friendly vibe. Wall-mounted lamps provide task lighting while keeping the desk space free. Glass doors and a well-placed window fill the space with light.
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.
This modern home office features a white desk with two white leather desk chairs positioned in front of a blue-gray accent wall. A section of the enclosing wall was removed in order to allow light to filter from the living room into the office. A funky metallic globe chandelier hangs overhead.
Kathy Griffin wants a work area for Team Griffin, her three full-time employees, that also incorporates her love of modern Zen style. On season four of HGTV Design Star, contestant Antonio uses a fresh shade of purple to lighten the space and add innovative touches like a huge map of the United States for Kathy to map out her tour dates.
Dark gray walls surround this Brooklyn apartment's modern home office. With a light colored ceiling and lots of natural light coming from the oversized window, the leather desk chair and dark desk and cabinets feel less heavy in the space.
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.
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.
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.
