Glamorous White-and-Gold Home Office
A starburst light fixture, fluffy white armchair and golden wall treatment put a glamorous spin on the traditional home office. Because their desk faces the window, the owners can enjoy natural light and mountain views while they work.
What interior designer's home would be complete without a meeting room? Equipped with three gold bookshelves and a large conference table, this space easily allows Raegan Ford to conduct meetings with clients, sketch or plan her next big project.
What might be considered wasted space is transformed into a simple home office space with a tremendous view. The slab desk provides just enough space for a drawer to stow items when not in use, and the window overlooks New York City's Highline.
Making the most of the open hallway on the second floor, the loft area is transformed into a chic home office. Comfortable chairs with tripod bases combine with a sleek white desk with a beautiful view of the rose gold bubble chandelier.
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.
Stylish Home Office With Metallic Desk Lamp and Colorful Modern Painting
This modern home office features a sleek, lacquered white desk with a bold blue chair and metallic table lamp. A white orchid –– along with other decorative items –– sits atop a ghost console table, while a colorful painting hangs above, adding a bold touch.
Narrow Home Office With City View and Modern Seating
This narrow home office space provides a great view of the city. It includes a sitting area with modern seats, a long blue rug with abstract geometric print, and an artistic interpretation of the American flag hanging on the wall above the blue sofa.
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.
Herringbone-laid flooring brings pattern to the all-white home office, while gold light fixtures add an element of glam. Built-in cabinets provide much-needed storage. A pair of armchairs sits in the bay window for a cozy seating area.
A built-in desk makes a dramatic emerald green statement and adds much-needed storage in this contemporary home office. The leather desk chair swings around to a Lucite desk, which adds extra workspace without taking up any visual weight in the room.
Elegant Home Office Includes Charred Wood Writing Desk
Though at first glance the office at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2015 appears perfectly traditional, a closer look reveals a charred cedar wood writing desk that offers a bit of destructive, rustic charm. "The design was inspired by the idea that some of the most beautiful pieces of literature, art and design result from destruction," designer Brittany Haines says.
In the minimalist home office, the design is kept streamlined to spotlight the stunning view out floor-to-ceiling windows. Nesting tables are all glass and a mirrored desk does the neat trick of seeming to disappear.
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.
