Home offices are now a staple part of the average household, whether that’s for putting in extra hours outside the office or for building your own empire. We expect a lot from our home workspaces, not only because they are a place where we sink many precious hours, but because they must achieve a seamless existence with our beloved home life. This selection of 40 home offices not only deliver functionality but serve with style. From spacious and luxurious home offices that look fit for a mogul, to compact and cosy workspaces for fresh-faced entrepreneurs, these designs offer every inch of inspiration. We’ll look at boho workspaces, Scandi style studies, simply sophisticated office spaces, and much more.

It’s all in the stucco. Add interest to a tiny home office by creating interesting “architectural” details within the wall stucco. An awkward alcove can become a bank of uniform display nooks, an uninspired doorway can become an elegant archway.

Nurture a Japanese aesthetic and a zen mindset. This unique desk design features a planter that makes a home for a majestic bonsai tree. A rice paper pendant light will softly diffuse overhead illumination, and a palmistry sculpture adds a mystical touch.
Keep it light. Open plan home office areas can appear bulky in the landscape of your home. Opt for a glass desk and gently illuminated shelving to lighten the look.
