When David’s not working in his busy west-side shop he’s tooling around the house or working from his home office. The desk was created by topping a pair of vintage file boxes with thick glass - a smart move if you need storage but don’t want a big, bulky desk with drawers. The graphic overscale calendar with its bold black and white design feels like a piece of art.
If your home office needs a fresh new look, it’s time to break out the spray paint. It’s easier than ever to paint a variety of surfaces thanks to new paint formulas. The biggest challenge will be choosing a color from dozens of on-trend hues. You can even paint fabrics with the right product!
The overhead lighting in this study is formed by interlocking antlers, adding to the room's lodge-like appeal. Beige and brown stripes make a bold statement on the wall, and green foliage throughout add an element of nature.
A closet in this transitional living room opens up to reveal a full home office in this design by Kristi Nelson. A built-in wooden desk and shelving provides plenty of storage and work space that can easily be hidden by closing the closet doors.
Neutral Transitional Home Office With Architectural Details
Arched built-in bookcases complement the arched window in this home office, providing eye-catching architectural details. The neutral transitional room features a minimalist aesthetic for a clutter-free, productive workspace.
Sophisticated Office With Dark Wood Desk & Pineapple Lamp
The richness of the dark wood desk is accentuated by the light beige background in this home office. A tufted silver chair and pineapple lamp add some fun to the design while remaining functional. Plants and pictures complete the space with a personal touch.
In large rooms, pay close attention to the shape, size and scale of any featured artwork. When small subjects are placed across a generously sized room, they lose their impact and appear more as visual clutter than a focal point. Here, in the multipurpose workspace located off the kitchen, an oversized fiberglass Trojan horse grounds the space and creates a focal point from across the great room.
The home office includes built-in bookcases with both open and closed storage. While files remain behind closed doors, color-coordinated books, vintage-style trophies and cultivated artwork are on display.
Transitional Office With Royal-Blue Walls and Wood Furniture
This transitional home office features walnut furniture, which contrasts beautifully with the royal-blue walls. A traditional table lamp, cylindrical floor lamp and wavy globe light fixture combine for interesting and decorative lighting. A black office chair rolls up to the desk for an easily accessible workspace.
When they need a place to jot down grocery lists, make budgets or send emails, the owners can enjoy this dedicated workspace in the corner of the kitchen. A modern sconce illuminates the desk, while the wood chair complements the kitchen's earthy color palette.
