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.
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.
A mirrored desk teams up with a scroll-back chair and gilded mirror in this colorful and eclectic guest room. A painted caned pendant lamp hangs above the vignette. The room reflected in the mirror features an array of Asian accents.
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.
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.
This room formerly housed miscellaneous junk; designers converted into a family study space. Beneath the existing bookcases, a desk was built with room enough for two computers. The bookcases' light color is a crisp contrast with the dark walls and trio of patterns on the window shade, sofa and rug.
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.
Home Office Adorned with Cozy Accessories and Floral Wallpaper
This eclectic home office, designed by Shelly Riehl David, is accentuated by orange, blue and dark brown colors. The blue and white floral wallpaper and black and gray flooring add texture and visual interest to the space.
A Moravian star pendant light is but one shining aspect of this eclectic office. A dark wood desk sits atop a zebra-print area rug, while gold-patterned white curtains and trendy Roman shades adorn the windows. The light blue walls add color to the space that is carried into the curtains for a seamless look.
