Home Office Space: Design Tips and Inspirations

Home offices have steadily gained momentum as more people choose to work from home.  However, we believe that having your own office at home should entail more than just a desk with a computer.  Not only can a home office provide a comfortable environment for work, but with key design elements, may also function as a source of inspiration and quiet retreat. 
We've gathered a selection of wonderfully designed luxury home office spaces ranging from traditional to contemporary:

This Princeton Executive Desk by Savannah Collections carries all the refined air of an academic study.  Finished in a rich Cherry Mahogany, the top provides a beautiful contrast with its inlaid black leather desktop.  Gold accents grace the hand-carved design, creating a hint of understated charm.

To complement the desk is the Princeton Wall Unit/Bookcase.  This awe-inspiring wooden bookcase provides ample storage for your treasured book collection or precious keepsakes, and are protected behind tempered glass doors.
For a different kind of traditional office style, the Henredon vignette below showcases a beautiful study with an oval table and a pair of sleek chairs.  The elegant bookcases on each side of the mantle provide a space for displaying books and treasures.

If your dream of having an even bright office space, a white desk against white walls and colorful accessories can awaken the senses and may just be the push needed to help you tackle those long office task lists.
Alternately, if creating a serene ambiance within your home office is your goal, it can be as simple as keeping your decor to the bare essentials.  A minimalist style can create a tranquil work area, so that you can better focus on important projects.  A clean and simple design can foster a clearer state of mind known to increase productivity and help generate ideas.
The exquisitely curved, white desk below is both arresting and clean in design.  We love the natural wood storage area and its unique rounded ends.  A matching storage component behind it, and minimal decor and books add a touch of warmth to the room, while complimenting the peaceful theme of the space.
