It seems like almost everyone I know is working from home these days. I myself am working from home right this minute as I’m writing this. Living in a one bedroom apartment, I do not have the luxury of having a home office, but it is certainly something I inspire to have one day!
Working from home can be rather draining. There’s something relieving about leaving your workspace at the end of the day, so when you finish your work day and you just move from your couch to the kitchen table, it doesn’t really feel like the day is ever really done!
Creating the perfect home office space for yourself is truly a very worthy thing to do for yourself. Being able to separate your work life from your home life just makes the day go by much more smoothly and can help make the end of the day feel far more relaxing.
So, in celebration of both working from home and from turning off the work day at the end of the day in that home, we’ve created this quaint little collection of 10 beautiful home office designs. Hopefully you are able to find all sorts of inspiration for your very own home office renovations!
1. The Coastline Cozy Office
Layout: This lovely home office space is a great way to start out the collection. This is a super spacious room here with tons of floor space and tons of windowed surface area to let all of that gorgeous natural light in. An outdoor space set off of the main room offers a gentle repose from the work day, complete with a patio set and unbeatable view of the ocean.
Flooring: While carpeting may sometimes feel outdated, this super clean linen colored carpet works very well in this space. The particular color is rather calming, and the texture of it just makes me want to lay down and roll around on it. It would also be great for little work breaks if you want to do some stretching!
Furniture: The super plush sectional sofa is the focal point of the room to me. It is so wide and cushioned that it really just makes me want to lay down and take a nap, meaning this office could also work as a spare room! A standard office desk in dark hardwood with tons of drawer space is the utile but fashionable choice, and this stylish rolling office chair really elevates the room.
Decor: This office is very minimally decorated right now – probably because no one has moved in yet – but the lighting around the room is setting a very nice mood. Just add some tall potted plants and some framed photos on the desk, and you’re all done!

2. The Cityscape Corner Office
Layout: This moderately sized home office space is the perfect size to fit all that you need. While it may have felt cramped otherwise, a floor to ceiling sliding door to an outdoor balcony really lets the natural light in, and allows for a breath of fresh air when you want it.
Flooring: Nice bright, white, shining tiles are modern and provide a very dramatic contrast against the black painted walls. They also do a good job of reflecting the daylight, making the room feel even brighter.
Furniture: Using a desk that is made of clear glass is a great way to make a smaller room feel more open as there is not chunky piece of furniture cutting the room in half. While I find that the huge Chesterman style leather chair doesn’t totally fit with the room, I can imagine the type of person who would want to sit in it.
The two orange plush chairs on the other side of the desk are fun, comfortable looking, and add a nice pop of color into the room. The credenza in the back is plain and utile, but what the heck is that filing cabinet doing in there?!
Decor: Something tells me that this office is sometimes used for more than just work! A flatscreen TV across from the desk offers a little mid-day break. Personal effects are in my opinion the best way to make a room feel comfortable and like it’s truly yours!

3. The Elegant Home Office
Layout: Here we have a secluded home office space that looks like it really offers some privacy away from the rest of the home. A generously sized room complete with a walk-in closet and a walkway to a relaxing outdoor area, really lets you know that this house is properly equipped!
Flooring: Classic, dark hardwood flooring is always an excellent choice, especially when you’re pairing it with lovely cream colored walls and white trim. I always love to see a hide on the ground as well, and using a cream colored hide really helps tie the room together. There’s contrast from floor to wall, rug to chair.
Furniture: A simple and quaint glass desk with shining black legs gives that correct texture contrast from all of the softer features of the room, like the brown leather butterfly chairs and super cozy armchair on the other side of the side.
Decor: Simple decorations in this room really let the main features of the space shine. A calming painting of the ocean accentuates that feeling of ease, and the wooden clock is a nice rustic touch.

4. The Cozy Casual Home Office
Layout: This super simple room is minimal and spacious. It’s always nice to have an area where you can do some co-working, and this room is big enough that you can even fit a double desk that extends the entire length of the room. A skylight and vertical window add that integral dash of daylight into the room.
Flooring: The most lovely shade of wood stain was used for these wood floors, and they look even more lovely considering that the desk and floating shelves almost match it perfectly. A boldly contrasted area rug set on top is a nice touch, too!
Furniture: I really like the furniture choices in this room! A super long and narrow desk is chic and minimal, while two white leather chairs are so beyond the standard office chair you might put at your desk. These feel more luxurious and plush than a swivel chair, don’t you think? Three floating shelves are a great place to put personal items, while a vintage, director’s-style chair can be a great place to take a break from your laptop to do some reading.
Decor: The decorations in this room really say a lot about the person who lives here. Chances are that they’re fun, they like film, and don’t want too much visual clutter! The decor of your house is the best way to let someone know who you are without using words.

5. The Cozy Home Office Library
Layout: Now this is what I’m talking about. This office space really has it all. It feels so complete with a huge window with a window frame deep enough to sit in, library shelves for all of your books and knick knacks, and it even has a fireplace! This is a rather dreamy home office space if I do say so myself.
Flooring: Beautifully stained hardwood floors look magnificent against white painted walls, and even more magnificent with a little accent Persian rug set in front of the fireplace.
Furniture: Simple furniture speaks volumes in this wondrous space. A sturdy black office desk with shining metal legs provide that texture contrast we always love to see, while a white leather swivel chair seems like just the right amount of comfort without being too comfortable that you can’t focus.
Decor: I think the reason that this room feels so cozy is because of all of the wonderful personal items scattered throughout the shelves and above the fireplace. You don’t really need much in way of decor when you have beautiful things like this!

6. The Office with a View
Layout: This is a truly magnificent room. High ceilings makes way for not only floor to ceiling library shelves, but a floor to ceiling window as well. This room is so spacious with room for a cozy seating area, but it feels even more open since you can see through the entire house, all the way through to the other corner window. Work probably doesn’t feel so much like work in this home office space.
Flooring: Beachy hardwood floors are covered in this space with a gorgeous and enormous Persian rug. While I don’t always like area rugs that are so bug, it’s the perfect shade, pattern, and style to completely elevate this room into something cozy and elegant.
Furniture: The furniture chosen for this space is wonderfully classic, but perfectly cozy, and effortlessly stylish all at the same time. A simple light wood desk uses open foundation to ensure none of the view is blocked, while beautiful blue accent chairs offer moments of repose from the work day.
Decor: The color scheme in this room is really giving. The blue accent chairs pair so nicely with the darker blue wall paint, while the dark green curtains feel more fresh than heavy and light blocking. Darker features are made light by light trim and tons of daylight streaming through the windows.

7. The Mediterranean Meeting Room
Layout: This open and airy office space barely feels like an office space. Gorgeous arched windows with stunning and rich hardwood framing remove any inkling from a boring office space, while a hexagonal room is such a breath of fresh air from the standard square room.
Flooring: The floor in this room is genuinely one of the most sensational things I’ve ever seen. A hexagon shaped room is already something wonderful to behold, but when the pattern of the hardwood flooring matches that shape, and the stain used for the wood looks like a sandy beach, well I think I’ve pretty much died and gone to heaven!
Furniture: Plush leather furniture really feels like the only choice for this home office space. The single leather with studs feel very commanding yet cozy, while the other two being set lower to the ground really makes the room feel inviting and non intimidating, which is important for an office space! Again we see a glass table with open legs to make sure that the room doesn’t feel stuffy or closed off.
Decor: Since the room itself is just so phenomenally gorgeous, it really doesn’t need much for decoration, especially considering that gorgeous view outside of those gorgeous window frames. Though I must say that the happy orchid on the desk is a nice touch.

8. The Sunny Sanctuary Office Space
Layout: This open and airy office space is a place that I truly wouldn’t mind working in every day. What doubles as the perfect art studio, this stunning space feels expansive not only because of the sheer size, but because of those huge windows lining the entire wall, and the fact that all of the outer elements are painted white. Having white on the outskirts and darker elements in the centre is a great way to make a room feel enormous.
Flooring: White painted floors are such a clever choice, especially when considering that every other element in the room is painted while as well! This room feels heavenly.
Furniture: Super minimal and quaint furniture feels like a really nice choice for this big room. Instead of taking up floor space with big chunky pieces of furniture, allow some breathing room with small wooden pieces that give just enough storage space.
Decor: I am in love with the decorative choices in the room. I love how so many wooden elements are used against the white foundation, the curated personal effects on the floating shelves feel so homey and inviting, while plants scattered throughout the room are the exact burst of freshness I always look for.

9. The Artist’s Office
Layout: Yet another stunning home office space that I’m sure no one would really ever get sick of entering every Monday to Friday morning. This room is such a lovely size, with enough space for a large desk and a couple of cozy seating areas, with still enough vacant floor space for it to feel open and airy. We must also consider that the super tall ceilings and big windows contribute to that feeling.
Flooring: Diagonally arranged wood floors may seem standard in color, but add a unique touch considering how they are arranged. A lovely blue accented area rug brings together the other blue elements throughout the room to create a very neat and cohesive look.
Furniture: A white fabric accent chair for an office chair is a very forgiving thing to do for yourself, while a dark ornate office desk creates a really incredible contrast, especially against the white walls and lighter colored personal items. A white sofa next to a brass looking coffee table really matches the room perfectly.
Decor: I think that this room is the best decorated in the entire collection. I love how the books all carry a color scheme with them, how all of the other personal effects also carry a color scheme, but I can’t take my eyes off of the stunning triptych painting of a bridge. Truly, one of the most beautiful pieces of art I’ve ever laid my eyes on.

10. The Quiet Corner Home Office
Layout: This moderately sized office is just the right size. Enough to host a fireplace, 3 lovely chairs, and some huge and gorgeous windows. This room feels so large thanks to those vaulted ceilings, and the enticing outdoor space set just on the other side of that door.
Flooring: Standard hardwood floors are wonderfully elevated by a beautiful cowhide set in the centre of the room.
Furniture: Plush leather chairs with steel framing pair perfectly with a glass and metal office desk, while a white fabric chair on the other side is the perfect spot to spend your work day.
Decor: Simple framed artwork adorns the walls while much of the decoration that we get comes from the beautiful stonework around the fireplace, and of course the perfect view on the other side of those windows.
