Ever look at a beautiful room and wonder how did they do that – and, more importantly, how can I get that look at home? We break down how to create an office space that makes working from home feel a little more fun.
01 Start with the walls. Feeling stuck in a room? A beautiful wallpaper can be a great place to begin. A soothing botanical print wallpaper (instead of a trendy mural) will stand the test of time. Simply pull complementary colors for the rest of the room from the initial pattern.
02 Pretty and practical. A handwoven striped cotton rug echoes the colors in the botanical wallpaper and feels wonderfully soft underfoot.
03 Add some unexpected color. Don’t miss an opportunity to add personality to the ceiling and wall paneling. Farrow & Ball’s Teresa’s Green turns the ceiling into a giant skylight, while Farrow & Ball’s Dix Blue brings depth to the wainscoting and trim.
04 Set up a functional work space. A beautiful desk is a must, but this white lacquer version offers more than just looks. Two deep drawers corral office supplies and odds and ends to keep the top of your desk free for work.
05 Sit pretty. A comfortable, upholstered chair in a wipe clean leather makes working from home more comfortable—and looks so much lovelier than a standard “office” chair.
06 Don’t forget to add a little life. Just because it’s an office doesn’t mean you shouldn’t decorate. Easy to care for plants and vintage artwork make it feel homey but still professional during video calls.
