For this home office, designers wanted to show off the room's colorful accents and rich textures, so they needed a strong, but neutral backdrop. They found their answer in Benjamin Moore's Rocky Coast (#1595), a saturated, warm gray.
The focal point of this traditional home office is the large wall of windows framed with a transitional box pleat drapery valance and panels. Two leather chairs with matching leather ottomans provide seating, making the rich tones in caramel, chocolate and wheat the perfect complement to old world charm.
From the deep blue walls, to the metallic globe pendant, to the diagonal hardwood with an inlaid border, this light-filled, transitional office is full of interesting elements. Bright white millwork sets off the bold walls, and a work table stocked with art supplies takes the place of a traditional desk.
Private Office and Library With Built In Bookshelves, Lamp Chandelier and Stately Traditional Desk
An all wood design and a lit bookshelf is a fun, library-inspired element in this traditional office lounge. A stately wooden desk features vine embellishments in the wood and a paneled desk top. A lamp shade chandelier is the perfect lighting detail for this room's style.
Art Deco Office with Funky Blue Lamp and Bold Patterned Rug
Aside from the kitchen, Chris planned to spend the least amount of money on his second bedroom, which would be used as an office. Taking the advice of a designer friend, he had the room painted in a blue-grey tone from Sherwin-Williams called Krypton and had custom draperies in a modern print made from a clearance bin fabric at $11.99 per yard. Since his laptop is pretty much the only thing he needs to work from home, the room was simply furnished with a vintage desk picked up from an antique market for $600 and paired with a black woven grass chair from IKEA that was $59. To soften the area underfoot, he installed FLOR tiles in a striped pattern, alternating each tile for a parquet look.
A floor-to-ceiling built-in desk makes for a bold statement in bright blue. Open shelves provide much-needed storage, while an orange shade brings a striking contrast to the room. A comfortable purple desk chair adds an additional jolt of color.
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.
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.
