Top modern home offices
Home office with colourful storage
Colour blocking is a great way to create visual impact with standard high-street box files. Dymo tape labelling systems lend a neat and tidy retro edge to your filing (especially if your handwriting isn’t up to scratch).
Organised home office
Stop admin, gift wrapping and craftwork encroaching on the rest of your home by creating a purpose-built station – under the stairs or in an alcove, say.
Home office with artwork
Striking art positioned above your desk will instantly give your home office presence. Black furniture set against white walls creates a feeling of minimal modernism.
Striped home office
Create a relaxed look by hand-painting stripes with visible brush strokes so they don’t become too formal. To achieve equally spaced stripes, draw vertical lines in pencil, then use the width of your brush as a guide.
Home office with bright accents
Get your home office to stand out by choosing a piece with a small colour detail, such as this lamp with a bright flex, then maximise the effect by mirroring the colour elsewhere, such as on a rug border or blinds.
Zingy home office
Give your home office a brilliantly bright update with zesty orange walls. Keep it chic by using a paler tone on one wall but choosing a neutral for the others and teaming it with a pale carpet. Sophisticated dark wood furniture works best in this scheme, as do chocolate-brown accessories.
Minimalist home office
A contemporary streamlined wooden writing desk teamed with beautiful accessories turns a corner into a stylish work space. Add colour with a glass lamp.
White home office
Create a chic home office with light, bright white walls, furniture and accessories. A sleek desk makes an inspiring workplace, with an Anglepoise lamp for versatile lighting. In the background, a classic diamond chair provides a relaxing spot to get away from paperwork.
Oriental-style home office
This home office uses a wall panel covered in a bold Oriental-style patterned fabric to create a focal point behind a contemporary metal desk. Accessories including the seat of the chair, files and books pick up the same shade.
Colourful home office
This office area is the perfect environment for the whole family to either work or play. A two-tier desk is teamed with adjustable chairs which can be raised for children and lowered for adults. The fresh lime-green walls and bold printed curtain fabric keep the look bright.
