Contemporary Home Office Doubles as Guest Suite
This multi-purpose room has clever tricks up its sleeve. The space functions as a home office most of the time, but when overnight guests are in town, a Murphy bed comes down between the bookcases. Built-in cabinets double as office storage and sleek nightstands. If the room needs more floor space, the desk also flips up to be flush with the zebrawood millwork.
Inside meets outside as French doors lead to an exterior courtyard from this coastal-inspired den. Built-ins with deep cornices and crown molding pop against the rich brown walls and add drama to the space.
This multi-level home office features elaborate dark-stained trim with a deeply coffered ceiling that offers a peek at the second story above. A granite fireplace surround extends floor to ceiling, creating a spot for the eye to rest.
Inspired by local parks and landscapes, this eclectic home office uses a mixture of natural colors and textures. A reclaimed wood accent wall anchors the comfortable rolled-arm sofa, while a weathered wood table is used as a simple desk. A grassy green dresser adds a touch of bold yet earthy color to the space.
Dark wood moldings and built-ins contrast against the grass-green walls of this transitional family room and home office. A comfortable green sofa is a comfortable place to watch TV, while the built-in desk provides a functional workspace.
Castle-like details adorn this traditional home office, which features a triptych of Gothic windows, elaborate crown molding and an intricately wrought door with iron detailing. Tall bookshelves match the room's soaring dimensions.
Richly Appointed Home Office Boasts Dark Wood Desk and Wall Unit
This home office, designed by Mary DeWalt Designs, provides a strong, masculine aesthetic as your eye feasts on the rich, dark woods of the desk, bookcase and flooring. DeWalt employed just a touch of blue in the area rug to reflect the color scheme she used for the rest of the home.
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.
Traditional built-in bookshelves in this contemporary yet masculine home office are the perfect spot to display favorite accessories and books. Cabinets underneath provide hidden storage. Contemporary sconces are hung at the top of the shelves for spotlighting.
This spacious home office features white walls with plenty of wood accents, including an exposed beam ceiling, wall paneling and a built-in bookshelf. A black desk is paired with a white leather tufted chair and positioned across from two suede brown armchairs.
Colorful artwork frames the doorway to this home office, making the entrance to the workplace a bit more exciting. Warm wood cabinets create an inviting atmosphere, and subtle green lighting adds interest overhead.
Open shelving provides much-needed storage in this Craftsman-style home office. A partner desk sits in the center of the space, providing a workspace for mom and dad, as well as a homework center for the kids. A large window overlooking the backyard pool brings natural light into the space.
Sliding wooden doors open up to expand the home office area or close to divide the hall from the office, helping to hide work or a project when needed. Large windows pour in tons of natural light, while built-ins and a classic desk provide functional work area.
This simple home office space features a contemporary desk made from a mix medium grain wood and tiger stripe bamboo. The surrounding floor-to-ceiling windows offer natural light and a view of the backyard landscape.
