Home Office Sophistication, A Touch On The Masculine Side – The House that A-M Built

By December 17, 2019January 23rd, 2024No Comments


I am drawn to sophisticated home office spaces … furnished with bold, detailed pieces, antiques, pieces with elegant lines … and topped off with accents of leather, metallics, textured fabrics, cushions and rugs.

When styling up a desk, start with a decor piece that you love …. something special from your travels, a motivational quote in a frame that inspires you …

 … or a quirky piece from the past, like this old typewriter!

Centre stage!

To add interest, experiment with different shaped pieces of differing heights.

Old maps and prints always add a touch of worldliness to a study space …

… and so does a beautiful art collection …

… and books.

Elegance personified … with the monochromatic bookcase styling, stunning buttoned chair and orchid accent piece.

Reflective pieces also add a touch of sophistication … here, the mirrored tray, mercury vase, glass decor pieces and glass fronted cabinet add extra glamour to a lush space.


In this more modern space, brass is the hero accent.

I also am drawn to spaces that are creative with desk furniture.

This beautiful console serves it’s purpose beautifully.

The rug in this striking room adds texture … and the patterned curtains soften this rather masculine space.

Dramatic drapes, ornate rug, velvet, leather, oversized mirror and pops of black.

Total sophistication.

Dark walls, lush carpet, leather, metal, art and a strong nip!

Yes, scrolling through these images again, I can definitely say I am drawn to a more traditional masculine office space …. dark walls, dim lighting, rich colours, lush textures.

If you, too, prefer a more masculine aesthetic, when it comes to creating a sophisticated home office space:

1. Think late 19th century gentleman’s club!

2. Go bold with dark colours – walls and furnishings.

3. Think lush, with textures and fabrics … timber, leather, textured rugs and cushions.

4. Add beautiful art to the walls – install it up to the ceiling for extra dramatic effect …

 5. And lamps for mood lighting.

6. Add comfort with gorgeous seating, deep plush sofas or leather chairs.

7. And add a little shine with metallic accents.

Bold, dramatic and luxurious all the way!
