"When you're working with smaller spaces like this office," says Joanna, "I think it's really important that you incorporate pieces that tell a story and give the space interest. I think it's important that, the smaller the space, the more character that you implement so that it really feels special."
Eclectic Home Office with Blue and White Floral Wallpaper
This bold home office uses unexpected pairings –– like blue and white floral wallpaper with a busy brown patterned carpet –– to create a stylish, lively space. A rust orange side table with matching stools and a pair of white bird lamps completes the look of this fun office nook.
Designer Susan Brunstrum created a cozy office nook in an out-of-the-way area of this Park City, Utah residence that reflects her mountain modern theme. The desktop is stained, but the rest of the drawers and cabinetry have been mottled with a gray paint for a textured look. A rustic leather office chair and interesting accents complete the picture.
Once inside the man-cave, the cool angles and architectural features clearly identifies it as a former attic space. The room is accessorized with black and white images of career milestones and nostalgic art that references the homeowner's home town. There are two seating areas, a game table, a live edge counter with four barstools and of course a massive television. This room meets the needs of whatever type of guests our homeowner is hosting. There are four large club chairs for casual business meetings, a comfy sofa for lounging, or we can fill every seat for a big sporting event. Every element in this room has a purpose, but we still managed to inject good design principals into finishes, the space plan and overall mood to ensure a great result.
Transitional Home Office With White Built-In Bookshelves
The tone-on-tone, neutral design scheme of this home office makes the room feel even larger than it really is. Light sources abound, including recessed lighting, track lighting, a contemporary light fixture, a table lamp and large windows. The brass and glass desk takes up minimal visual space and is a key design element in the room.
Worldly Home Office Features Accents from Around the Globe
Artifacts and accents collected from around the globe show the worldliness of the homeowner in the woman's office at the 2017 San Francisco Decorator Showcase. Designer Kari McIntosh selected St. Frank's Indigo Dots wallpaper and a sunburst mirror to create a rich design setting symbolizing the relationship between the heavens and Earth.
A comfortable sitting area pairs chrome armchairs and a purple-topped ottoman in this contemporary home office. Textured wallpaper creates an interesting backdrop to the space, while colorful art and vases add notes of vibrancy.
This eclectic study is a colorful, fun space that features plenty of places to relax and store office supplies. Patterned Roman shades and an animal-print loveseat keep the room from feeling too serious.
Rustic Teal Home Office with Neutral Open Bookshelves
The newly remodeled office features a generous work surface that's ideal for the Ramsey kids to work on school work or projects. The old built-ins were removed and replaced with open shelving in a natural finish.
Elegant Black and White Office with Floral Wallpaper
Stunning black and and white floral wallpaper surrounds this elegant, transitional office. A small gold chandelier and gold framed mirror add to the formal look while a metallic desk with silver chairs adds a sharp, contemporary touch.
In order to give the ready-made bookshelves a custom, architectural look, Matt and Jodi had a contractor install the two pairs back-to-back. Once the bookshelves were attached to the walls with L-brackets, the exposed sides were clad with luan and trimmed out with 1x3 MDF (medium density fiberboard) paint in the same shade of white as the melamine shelves.
