To give the open space just off the entry a purpose, yet keep the center of the area open for traffic flow in and out of this apartment, two pairs of ready-made bookshelves purchased from an office supply store were placed back-to-back to act as room dividers. On one side, a private office is separated from the formal dining space and family room on the other side. The apartment's walls were painted peacock blue, which helps the walls recede so that accents of white and apple green stand out.
This two-story all-white home office is the perfect spot to get work done. Herringbone-laid flooring brings pattern to the space, while gold light fixtures add an element of glam. Built-in cabinets provide much-needed storage. A fireplace adds warmth to the room.
The garage was converted into a spacious home office complete with two glass French doors, a skylight and the garage door hidden behind a storage cabinet in case the homeowners ever needed to convert the space back into a garage, as seen on HGTV's Love It or List It, Too.
The red-and-white chevron pattern used in the floor and chair upholstery of this home office energizes the space. The dark wood cabinetry adds dramatic contrast and plenty of storage space for office essentials.
Home Office Features Greek Key Rug, Yellow Accents and Upholstered Bookcases
A Greek Key rug cushions the hardwood floor under a chrome framed wood desk. A striped chair and a pair of framed patterns add cheery yellow accents to the neutral and gray base tones. Upholstered bookshelves with nailhead trim add style and function.
A mixed wood and metal desk and bookshelf add rustic industrial style to this sunny yellow home office. By turning books around so that the spine is facing backwards, the books become a part of the neutral, simple look of the shelf.
