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.
As seen on HGTV's House Hunters Renovation, homeowners Robert Marra and Nathan Baynard found their ideal house in the Silverlake neighborhood of Los Angeles, California. They created a contemporary office in one of the guest bedrooms using a bright blue/green color for the walls, to set off the black furniture, and placing a full-length mirror on one wall to bring more light into the room.
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.
If your multipurpose space is used by adults and kids, consider upholstery fabrics that will help mask accidents and spills. Medium gray tones pair well together and are an excellent alternative to beige or tan.
Matt and Jodi sought the help of a designer friend to give purpose to the open space just off their apartment's entry. In order to use this as a private office space, the area needed to be separated somehow from the dining and living room areas.
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.
Contemporary Home Office With Teal Velvet Sofas and Metal Coffee Table

Hanging Crystal Strands Dazzle in Blue Home Office
Drawing inspiration from the ocean, a velvety, saturated wall color is paired with cascading crystal baubles and wavy-print drapery in the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2014 woman's office. A white animal skin rug grounds the stylish space.
Originally, the wood-paneled stairwell leading up to this attic was extremely dark and dingy. Horizontal slats of whitewashed pine lighten up the stairwell and the attic walls, turning the space into a refreshing yoga studio. Now the stairwell wall serves as the central divider between the area designated for yoga sessions and the space meant for desk work.
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.
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.
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.
Colorful Artwork and Fresh Ranunculus Brighten Home Office
Colorful yet muted abstract artwork and fresh ranunculus set a cheery tone in the woman's home office at the 2017 San Francisco Decorators 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.
With no place for a traditional home office, designer Scott Thomas was able to make room for a working space in this small condo kitchen. Floating shelves serve as storage and display area without taking up too much space.
