BOLD WALLPAPER

Make a statement with bold wall coverings instead of framed art work. Choosing the wallpaper first will guide your inspiration for the rest of the decor. The lines of gray velvet chair mirror the curves of the elegant florals on the walls. The black background is dramatic and moody and easily carries over to the desk and paint on the cabinets.

BRING ON THE BLUE

The color blue symbolizes serenity, stability, and inspiration making it the perfect backdrop for an office. This design is masculine and feminine at the same time which is a plus if you're sharing the space as a couple. Adding a statement light fixture is always a good idea and elevates the room's decor.

LOOK DOWN

Nothing elevates the style of a room like a beautiful statement floor covering. Choose from hundreds of patterns and colors at practically any price point including washable rugs making them so functional for high traffic areas. The black in the zebra rug and the complimentary green paint is a perfect combination of sleekness and color.

 THE SPACE SAVER

Carving out a small space in your home doesn't have to break the bank. Making the wall behind your desk a focal point is a fun place to start. Try peel and stick wallpaper as a fresh alternative to decorating with little commitment.

BRIGHTEN YOUR DAY

Pop some color into your space to boost your mood! Nothing says good morning quite like a mix of bright shades and colorful shelf decor. If you're wanting to add a little bit of neutral, leather is always a good idea to tone things down like these gorgeous desk chairs.

 FRONT AND CENTER

I love a desk that takes center stage. It doesn’t even have  to be glamorous. The point is that it sits in the middle of the room and everything else works around it. A pop of color behind it, light and airy curtains and a modern decor to tie it all together. Perfection.

ORANGE CRUSH 

Orange is a fun color that is optimistic and uplifting. Modernize this bold hue with neutral colors like gray and white. Add lots of natural light to keep the space feeling fresh.

KEEP IT SIMPLE

A minimalistic design devoid of any distractions can be a productive space. If bold colors are overly stimulating, pare down with a classic black and white theme. It’s clean and fresh when paired with simple furnishings. Add a touch of warmth with a fluffy throw rug and boucle chair cushions.

MAKE AN ENTRANCE 

French doors command a grand entrance! The glass panes let the light shine in making your space bright and airy. Add a springtime wallpaper and greenery for a feminine refreshing hike office.

MAXIMIZE YOUR SPACE

If you’re thinking your home is a bit too cozy for a home office, think again. With a little creativity, you can even turn a closet into a functional work area. Keep the space open by removing the closet door and replacing the overhead light with an eye catching fixture.
