I have been having so much fun trying to figure out what I want to do with my home office design. My main goal is to create a space that I feel creative and productive and, perhaps most importantly, that I actually want to visit every morning. Office interior design is so often boring and stuffy, so I really want to create something that has some personality to it. This particular office really resonated with me because it feels very grand and executive-like but is still filled with fun mementos and artwork. Those are the things that really get me going and get me excited to work harder. Plus, in my opinion, you really can't go wrong with beautiful wood home office ideas like they have used in here.
This is an absolutely stunning office design, and one that I would be so glad to walk downstairs to work in every single morning. I have debated for quite some time as I have been planning out my home office design in our current formal living room (that we never use) or in the extra room in our pool house. I love the idea of being able to leave the house to a separate space for work, but the room over there is definitely not large enough to recreate an office like this. So basically I think that I am going to have to choose between design and location. For all of you guys on here that work from home -- do you think that office decor or physical location is more important and more helpful for your productivity? I am really torn between the two.
Can you imagine having such a beachy-chic ocean from office design like this lucky homeowner? I mean that is just heaven right?! Even though I certainly do not have those fantastic views, I would like to imitate their office decor ideas in our bonus room that I am converting to my workspace. The main things that I want to be able to achieve is the wood paneled ceiling with the beams, as well as the casual yet elegant decor. We don't have that high of a vault, so I am not sure if the ceiling portion will look the same but I will do the best that I can. I like the office layout as well because it is not over crowded, but still seems full and cozy. I will post some photos when we are done so that you all can see how it turned out and let me know what you think!
I am really wanting to revamp my current office design with our tax return money this year. We redid this place about 10 years ago and it is nice and all, but I have been seeing so many super high end looking home design ideas over the past year that would go perfect in this space. My main goal is to take things from pretty dark and masculine to brighter and more neutral. I would like to do a white, beige, and french blue theme, trash the chairs (except maybe the desk chair), and paint all of the wood pieces white. Doing that alone will make a huge difference to how this place looks, and really won't cost a lot of money. Plus, I think that it will make this small office design seem so much more bright and open.
I just love this office design because, even thought it is pretty small, the items that are in here bring such a bold and glamorous style to the space. My favorite part about the whole thing is actually the upholstered arm chair that they used for as their desk chair to accent the rest of the plush home office decor. It is definitely a more nonconventional option for this use, but it looks so good behind the glass topped writers desk and in front of the stunning dark paneled fireplace and bookcases. My guess is that this room was originally a formal living room of some sort that they converted to a modern office design. I personally think that this is a better use of the space because who really uses multiple living rooms anymore, you know?
Now this is definitely the Mercedes Benz of office design when it comes to working from home. Boy do I wish that this was my current situation rather than the sofa in my living room haha. This whole place is just stunning -- everything from the paneling (wow!) to the gorgeous windows, and unique contemporary decor that contrasts so nicely with the super traditional architecture. Obviously, there is no way that I could convert my current home office into anything that looks remotely like this, but I am going to try to take inspiration from here and use it to create a similar ambiance in there. I think that the key is going to be mixing and matching styles, while keeping everything pretty sleek and minimalist. I am going to take portions of the more contemporary office design ideas that they have in here, and then pair them with some classic pieces that I already have like ginger jars, Turkish rugs, and a really awesome leather desk chair.
