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.

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!
