            Some days, it can be hard to find the motivation to get to work—especially when your office also happens to be your bedroom, kitchen, dining room, or living room, too (or all if you live in a studio!). But we promise it'll be a lot easier to roll up your sleeves and get to work if your home office looks stylish, feels energizing, and promotes productivity with organizational solutions. The best of them inspire focus in addition to looking good. Think: ample sunlight, uncluttered surfaces, rejuvenating colors, and actually-comfortable furniture to work on. Whether you've got an entire room or just a tiny corner, we've got inspiration for you with these incredible home offices.

            Use Lacquered Furniture

            If you have a small makeshift home office in the corner of a larger room or you're converting a walk-in closet, opt for glossy white lacquered cabinets and furniture. Similar to the maximizing effect of a mirror, the reflective surfaces will give the illusion of a larger, more open space. Designer Raji Radhakrishnan gave this home office some pops of fun and vibrancy with primary colored stools and a graphic rug.

            Bring the Outdoors In

            Between the leaf-print window treatments and treillage-fronted cabinetry, this office feels like a secret garden—in fact, it was a porch before designer Joe Lucas enclosed the space.

            Go Old-School

            There's n0 shortage of vintage eye candy in the Jackson, Wyoming, study of Christian Burch and John Frechette, the duo behind local decor and menswear shop Mountain Dandy. The roll-top desk was a hand-me-down from Burch's parents, while the pegboard walls were original to the '50s house.

            Skip the Desk

            For our 2019 Whole Home in Nashville, Dani Arps—a go-to office designer for New York startups—created an airy, clutter-free space that lacked one notable feature: a desk. "Most files are stored digitally, so bulky office furniture with tons of storage isn’t necessary," said Arps, who instead opted for a large, streamlined work table from Industry West.

            Use Energizing Colors

            How about a vibrant fuchsia wall instead of that extra cup of coffee? Designer Krsnaa Mehta gave his lackluster home office a surge of energy with jewel tone statement walls, plenty of artwork, and prints throughout.

            Hide the Clutter

            Tasked with turning a tiny, white-walled bedroom in Bobby Berk's Los Angeles home into a proper home office, creative director Brady Tolbert headed to Craigslist to find the perfect mid-century credenza. It's not just all looks—the cabinet keeps messy papers out of sight.

            Drench it in Color

            One way to ensure your office isn't a total snooze? Paint on a few coats of high-gloss paint in a bright shade. "The raspberry shade is exciting but not overwhelming—it’s the perfect hue for a creative space," says Katie Ridder of this study she designed for a Manhattan client.

            Keep It Rolling

            Photographer Victoria Pearson combined a wooden top from Ikea and a wheeled CB2 base to create her own rolling desk, which allows for an easy change of scenery or workspace rearranging at a moment's notice.

            Sing the Blues

            Feeling stressed about work? Try painting your office blue—research shows that the color has a calming effect. In this Connecticut study, designer Brooke Crew used Farrow & Ball's Parma Gray (which, despite its name, is in fact blue).

            Focus on the Fireplace

            Warm up an open and airy home office with a fireplace that features an earth-toned facade, like this one in a large space designed by Breegan Jane. The marble introduces sophisticated, formal style to the more casual elements but it also helps to bring the scale of the ceilings down to a more intimate, human scale.

            Install a Floating Desk

            While there may not be room for a whole lot of extras in this tiny NYC abode designed by Shapeless Studio, each nook and cranny is brought to its fullest potential. The architectural quirk becomes a desk, providing a work space or a little vanity station to get ready. The lesson? Convert any free corner or wall available into a home office by installing extra task lighting (preferably attached to the ceiling or wall to keep surface clutter to a minimum) and a low profile floating desk.

            Try Industrial

            If your work space is cool, you may be more inclined to actually use it. A vintage aluminum desk and stool create an industrial vibe in this Colorado cabin's study. Chicken-wire bookcases add a rustic touch to the room.

            Use Your Walls

            To really get the most out of every square inch, turn the actual wall into a bulletin board with tackable panels. Tamsin Johnson customized them to fit in the awkward space under the stairs. And speaking of those stairs, how incredible is that whimsical staircase? We love this mix of contemporary design with antiques.

            Use Open Shelving

            If you can stay organized, this organizational system is for you. Seeing everything means you'll never lose a file or supply. In this Boston brownstone, the kitchen pantry also houses the office, so the shelves serve double-duty.

            Dedicate a Nook

            An architectural alcove is the perfect place to dedicate to your home office. In photographer Bjorn Wallander's New York City apartment, he painted this nook in a soothing deep espresso color but then brightened things up with plenty of artwork and books for inspiration. And don't forget to add speakers (with your housemates's permission, of course).

            Ditch Bulky Furniture

            If you have enough storage in your home office thanks to built-ins or a spacious media cabinet, then choose a desk with less drawers and a sleeker, leaner profile instead of a bulkier alternative. Designer Corey Damen Jenkins mixes colorful abstract art and modern photography with more classic elements, like the antique desk and accessories while the lucite chair provides some contemporary flair.

            Take Inspiration from Everywhere

            To totally transport yourself somewhere way more exciting than your work, try an bold pattern, like the black-and-white zebra motif in this Charleston home office. A rattan chandelier adds texture.

            Consider Scandinavian Style

            Pare way down and keep your aesthetic clean and calming. A simple Swedish desk was placed by a window with a view of the Baltic Sea in a Scandinavian home. It's mostly neutral, but the pops of blue keep the room feeling fresh and invigorating.

            Conceal Clutter With Curtains

            If your clutter feeds your creativity, you don't have to get rid of it, you just need to conceal it smartly. In a Birmingham, Alabama office, curtains soften the room and hide everyday office papers and books that are stacked up on the shelves.

            Keep Caffeine Nearby

            Have an extra closet or storage area? Set up a nearby caffeine bar. In the case of this space designed by Marie Flanigan, the desk-side cabinet is stocked with tea supplies. This way, the occupant can actually get some use out of their collected china and reduce their trips back and forth to the kitchen while working.

            Keep It Understated

            Your formula to an understated modern office: a simple glass top table, neutral tones, and nature-inspired materials. This home office designed by Corinne Mathern Studio is also in the bedroom, so a balance between visual flow and separate zones for separate tasks is key. A brightly lit and minimalist approach like this one is perfect for both a bedroom and a home office.

            Go All Black

            Is this not the sexiest office you've ever seen? Black furniture combined with brass accents looks super sleek. Opt for a gray-black for the walls, so it doesn't feel too dark.

            Mix in Vintage

            Mark J. Williams filled the office of a client's Craftsman house in Los Angeles with period-style furnishings, like a Paul McCobb chair and rustic Alton House desk, for a look that's vintage without being theme-y.

            Get Scrappy

            Calling all New Yorkers and anyone else who lives in a teeny, tiny apartment—you probably don't have room for a formal office, so you need to get resourceful. Opt for small furniture, even just a thrifted side table, and simply side up a chair. Small and modest but it provides a space that's not your bed to crank out some work.

            Choose a Matching Pin-Board

            In this fabulously over-the-top home office designed by Miles Redd, the tented ceiling provides some privacy and warmth while the corresponding wallpaper helps ease the transition between the windows and the walls for a stylish flow. He added a matching blue pin-board on the wall to keep papers from piling up on the desk.

            Be a Minimalist

            Minimalism is so hot right now. Keep your desk clutter-free, add in simple furniture (like these reclaimed wood chairs and desk), keep a neutral color palette, and watch how inspired you'll be to actually do your work. If you need to warm things up—so it doesn't look bland and sterile—add a plant or macramé wall hanging.

            Go Bohemian

            Embrace your inner free spirit and decorate your office with anything that tells a story, has sentimental value to you, or that you picked up on your travels. Add in a bold, patterned rug, color on color, and some plants. Consider yourself creative? More is more in that case. See more at Old Brand New.
