30 Home office interior décor ideas

A home office is often a contrasting space. On one hand it’s a space where you work and retreat in an almost different work. But on the other hand you’re still at home. This duality has to be captured in the interior décor of your home office. As it also happens with the rest of the rooms from the house, this area can also be decorated by following different styles and influences.

If you can’t place the desk near a window you could compensate with artwork

We’re just going to cover three styles. The first type of home office is an elegant and rigorous one with a classical design. In this case you should focus on classical pieces of furniture with curved lines and elegant details. You can opt for a traditional desk chair and a small desk with drawers that have beautifully designed handles. You might also like to add a desk lamp and a series of photos on the wall.
