Pouring over beautiful workspaces in interior magazines and blogs could easily become a pasttime of ours; we’re forever looking for inpsiration for our own home offices and desk spaces. Here’s a few that have caught our attention…
We love light, bright areas with lots of personal touches; white walls give a really chic, spacious feel to any room and the addition of prints, art and magazine cuttings on walls gives life to the working area.
This is a neutral-lovers dream; the white floorboards, the bare wood and the cream and black details. We love this ‘lived in’ look to a home, everything has a place and yet everything is on show – the organised clutter provides an endless source of inspiration for creative types.
Don’t be afraid to have a messy end to your desk, not all of us feel inspired by a tidy room.
Play around with different textures, a sheepskin rug against bare floorboards and a wooden desk completes a room with very little colour.
This space has more of a minimal, organised feel to it but the cute touches really bring it to life. It feels airy and spacious with the white walls and furniture, but the pops of grey and pastel keep it playful and eye-catching.
Stack up books and storage boxes and layer on candles and pen pots to make the space feel more like home.
This is another busy room, yet the colour scheme is minimal so it’s instantly calming. The white walls, floors and furniture is brightened by the addition of wooden items and lots of greenery.
An all-white room can look quite cool and uninviting, so make sure to master the ‘lived in’ feel by adding life to a room – use stacks of books, photos and wall art to personalise your area.
Finally, throw in lots of pot plants and other greenery to add a little something else.
Possibly our favourite office area of the lot is this luxe area, the office of the Apartment 34 team. This is just so busy, there’s so much happening but due to the calming pastel colour scheme it all comes together perfectly.
We love the way the desk is in the middle of the room – it really means business. If you have a whole room to work with, consider placing your desk away from the wall, it will give the room purpose and keep you feeling motivated.
The gold details from the light fittings and the book towers on the shelves are two details we’ll be taking inspiration from.
This space is great for those who are working out of a little area; the vintage style desk steals the focus of the room, and the minimal working area means you can always find time to get work done.
If you’re working within a small space, go for a desk with drawers so you can stash stationery and other clutter to keep the area clean and tidy. We love the map on the wall and the neat DIY rug – they really section off the room for the workspace.
Which is your favourite?
