Statement Making Workspaces | |

If you work from home and spend a lot of time in your office, I strongly recommend decorating it to the nines. This office space has me swooning with its impeccable mix of modern and traditional. A crystal chandelier, slick modern furniture, a warm wood wall, and fabulous antique portraits. I don’t care how creepy some people find them I can not get enough of old portrait paintings. It’s funny, in the grouping above I can totally see how someone would find either of the men a little creepy but Grandma’s kind face seems to diffuse the creep factor.

Maybe you don’t need a big desk for long hours of working but just a spot to sit and write a letter or do your makeup occasionally. That’s another opportunity to make a lovely little workspace. I must admit that when I first started getting into interior design I was not a fan of leopard print, but I’ve been worn down by some really fantastic examples. And paired with an elegant brass chair frame? Be still my heart.

And then there’s this dream-like room. The architecture is the star with those huge windows accented perfectly by breezy sheer drapery. Beautiful flooring installations are still the only place I can handle chevron anymore and this blue and white tile knocks it out of the park. It would be so easy to feel inspired working in a space like this. Or just reading the paper and sipping some coffee!
