Which home office style are you? Discover your workspace inspiration

As more of us than ever work from home, it's important that the spaces we occupy are designed to inspire. Transform your desk space from dull and drab and create a purpose-designed space that will change the way you work. Whether you have a dedicated study or a small desk in the corner of your room, the importance of a good arrangement and aesthetic is essential.

The trendy one


For the trend-focused and style lover, this look incorporates 2016's most enduring shade. Copper is going nowhere this season so stick to the metallic and work with oversized round mirrors, marble base lamps and lots of indoor plants - from terrariums and hanging cacti to large ficus' and bonsai trees, the indoor plant craze is also here to stay.

The colourful one

Bright and bold, this look is not for the colour shy. With a palette of punchy pastels and bleachy neon shades, this workspace is invigorating and perfect for those who need an added spring in their step each morning.

The natural one

1-home-office-4
With soft natural finishes, this look is homely and organic. Handmade triangle shelves maintain the artisanal quality and when filled with a bohemian curation of weave storage baskets, plants and stoneware, they'll warm any space with a bespoke type of homespun charm.

The classic one

1-home-office-10
Sophisticated, hardwearing and with a classic appeal, this mid-century style is for the traditionalist. With a desk-chair combo that never goes out of style, the fine veneer woods and soft leather seating imbue the scheme with a sense of ease and sophistication.

The pretty one

1-scandi
Soft and pretty, this room is for the feminine. Tactile touches transform it from a traditional workspace into something beautiful - an ivory sheepskin gently draped over the chair, a comfy rug and fringed tapestry soften the scheme, while miniature vases and printed stationery prettify desk-tops.

The Scandi one

1-yleo
For the one who likes a space that's clean, functional but still sleek and organic, the Scandi does all of the above. Introduce pops of colour with painted furniture in sunny shades of yellow and pastel blues, and introduce texture in the form of jute and cotton to keep the natural Nordic vibe.

The retro one

1-home-office-5
For the nostalgic, this look harks back to more glamorous times with a 60s wooden desk and punchy orange chair. Achieving an authentic retro look is all in the accessories - a starburst clock and stack of graphic art books will provide the final touches.

The cool one

1-home-office-8
For the cool and collected, the steely grey palette here is complimented by black leather chairs and slick woodwork. To ensure it's not all work and no play, a floating hammock brings a sense of fun and curiosity, perfect for spaces where innovative ideas are needed.
