You want your home office to be as beautiful as the rest of your abode—but not so beautiful that it distracts you from the tasks at hand. Rayana Schmitz of Firefinish Interiors struck an ideal balance here. The neutral palette is restful, with enough textural intrigue to avoid becoming soporific. The wealth of built-in storage allows for a minimalist waterfall-style desk/console table so that the overall ambience is light and airy.

When your work space is tucked in a corner of a room without a window, you want to brighten things up. Harp Home Staging & Styling did that here by opting for sunny blues and breezy textures such as the cane chair and the wicker basket. Find a similar desk here and a similar task lamp here.

This room by Kathryn Lilly Interiors proves that an office doesn’t have to be large to feel luxe. The Fauna Rug, the wallpapered ceiling, the marble desktop, and the rich blue walls give this room time-honored glamour. And with its lush velvet upholstery, the Cullen Desk Chair shows that style and comfort can be synonymous. Find the framed Slim Aarons photograph here and a similar sideboard here.  

The kitchen is the hub of the home, so why not let it serve double-duty as a home office too? Take inspiration from how Viv Torres fitted a desktop between two cabinets, leaving enough room not only for a laptop but also for a table lamp and art. Find a similar chair here

For pure elegance, it’s tough to top the home office of Michelle from Blushing Boho Interior Design. Pro tip: If opting for a glass-top desk, be sure the glass is tempered for maximum durability. And if you’re going for a desk without drawers, you’ll want some sort of sideboard, cabinet, or even a dresser to stash papers, electronics, and the like. Find a similar desk here, a similar rug here, and a similar table lamp here.

Waste not, want not—and here that means don’t waste the space between two windows when you can nestle a desk there. Just shy of four feet wide, the Noely Desk that Rebecca of Swell Curations used here includes a drawer to compensate for its compact surface space. The round mirror helps maximize the natural light and makes the space feel considered rather than an afterthought. Find a similar chair here.
