How to design your home office?!

The first thing that comes to mind when designing your home office is Functionality. Without it, all you have is a dust-collecting space that teases you every time you walk by. By what is also important is making this utilitarian space sleek, beautiful and a great fit in your home.

This home-owner requested a work space with a lot of desk space.  Her day to day involved looking over blueprints, therefore her desk needed to be large enough to multitask. What’s Key: Your desk needs to serve practical purpose and should represent the type of work you will be doing. No reason to invest in a desk that doesn’t fit your needs.

Love this piece, timeless and sophisticated with both masculine and feminine qualities. Many times its not about the location of the “home office” but just picking out pieces that speak to your inner interior.
