Who says a home office has to be a boring, purely functional space? These stylish home offices are full of personality.
Living etc. October 2008
Unique pieces of furniture, colourful wallpaper, elegant mirrors, and eye-catching accessories can all be used to add a little pizzazz to your home office. Don't forget to hang some art work, photos, or other wall decor, like the ensemble of sweet bird-theme embroidered wall hangings, shown above. My big pet peeve about home offices is seeing ugly desk chairs. Notice that every office in these images has a great chair--one you would never find in an office supply store. I think clear lucite chairs always look fabulous.
I would love to have a white Parsons desk and a fab yet comfy desk chair, maybe in dark purple leather, like the one shown below, in my ideal office/ studio space (for painting, sewing, and other craftiness). I would also want the space to have loads of natural light, a fabulous central light fixture, white floors, a collage inspiration board, and white storage/ shelving. I'm envisioning one pink accent wall in the space, and maybe another wall covered in a pretty wallpaper, with the rest of the walls being bright white. If I could really have it all, in my dream office/ studio, there would be french doors leading out to the garden.
