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.
Light and Bright Home Office With Teal Velvet Sofa and Built-In Desk
Large windows allow natural light to illuminate this home office, showing off the wall-to-wall built in desk and natural wood floors. A sitting area features a teal velvet sofa and metal coffee table, while a wooden ceiling fan is positioned above.
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 custom cabinet functions as an office and work space, which can be easily hidden by closing the cabinet doors. A bright green desk chair helps to brighten the cottage-style living space, first seen on HGTV's Cousins Undercover.
At once traditional and contemporary, this small home office combines the best of both styles. Glossy blue paint freshens up traditional cabinetry. A pop-up laptop and keyboard stand frees up valuable desk space.
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.
This bold, Midcentury Modern desk becomes a statement piece in the office area of the eclectic living room. The large table top gives the homeowner plenty of space to work, while the unique color blends right into the design vision of the space.
Ocean-Inspired Blue Brightens Small Transitional Home Office
Bold, inset stripes follow the lines of the ceiling in this fun and functional transitional home office.

In this cheerful corner, a small chest provides extra storage, and a slim lamp adds accent lighting and ambiance.
This stylish study begins with three-panel glass doors opening to the grid-ceiling detail and industrial cable lighting. The space is fitted with a custom partner’s desk and cream leather chairs. The ceiling pattern is also custom-made and is echoed in the cubed cocktail tables and chocolate carpet.
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.
Some people telecommute, others finish work projects or emails after hours at home, while still others simply enjoy having a dedicated home office for paying bills and taking care of other personal business. An extra bedroom is a perfect option for a home office because the door can be closed for solitude and focus or to hide clutter.
