Fall into Work: Inspiring Home Offices

With the leisure days of summer behind us, we’re focusing our energy on school projects, work deadlines and long homework hours that loom ahead this autumn. To keep organized and inspired, a positive working environment is mandatory. Here, a few minimal home office looks we love that are bound to nurture productivity and creativity.

Above:  In this Danish office, minimal aesthetics and plenty of light make for an ideal spot to work and study. (Note the repurposed bed spring for a useful clip board!)

Above: This simple space by Belgian designer Marina Bautier provides the perfect setting to focus.

Above: To create a look similar to these above home offices, start with a large desk. Although it’s technically meant for dining, the Tranetorp Table by Ikea makes for a spacious work platform.

Above: Big is not always the mandate for a great workspace, as designer Alexandra Loew proves with this small nook office she created.

Above: Being strong advocates for adding a pop of red to a room, it’s no wonder why we find this home office, seen on Pure Kitchen, so inviting.

Above: It’s easy to add some similar crimson flair: Hang a simple implement on a wall, such as this red Triple HOOK-UP Strip by Three by Three (left), or file important papers in a colorful storage unit like this Bisley 5-Drawer Cabinet (right).
