Stylish and Practical Home Office Décor

More and more of us are working remotely from home and a home office is tricky thing to get right. If you make it to homely it’s likely that you’ll be easily distracted and you will find it difficult to concentrate on your work as many things will draw your attention. If you make it too clinical and professional it just won’t be an enticing place in which to spend time.

Combining professionalism and coziness, along with using vivid colours and art elements can create a fresh and comfortable environment.

Here are some ideas to create that perfect work space:

Go Vintage

Using vintage storage like the trunks and chest in this study can give an antique feel to your space, and a white and cream colour scheme can really set off some carefully selected artworks and posters.

Using reclaimed furniture and unusual features like the shutters here as a notice board can give a real vintage feel to a space, which looks like a novelist’s desk from the early 1900s.

Making the most of unusual spaces

This is a great example of making an awkward room shape into a beautiful quirky room. There’s enough detail in the room to make the white look bright and fresh rather than clinical. The bookcases create a strong focal point

A great way to separate home life from work life is to create your own home office in your garden. Companies now create these shed offices to your specifications and you can have complete control on how it looks.

Using colour and pattern.

Make your home office an oasis of calm using peaceful shades like this minty green. The inclusion of some house plants creates a restful atmosphere.


Natural light

If you’re lucky enough to have a spare room full of natural light, make the most of it. Placing your desk facing the window can help you to narrow your focus into work mode and leave home distractions behind.
