by | Mar 18, 2020

Who doesn’t dream of working from home?

Of saying goodbye to the commute and to office politics?

The temptation to set up shop at home can be irresistible.

But careful what you wish for. With a home office come other frustrations.

Loneliness, lack of inspiration and procrastination can be a high price to pay for working from home.

But at DU we are very much in favour of working from home as it gives us the chance to decorate the office the way we want.

And work in surrounding that please us and bring out the best in us.

Having a spare room to turn into a home office at home is useful, but often a luxury. Here we show some of our favourite looks and set ups, Scandi style…


First thought when setting up a home office is the colour scheme.

Then style…

And then the less exciting bits: Power outlets for different devides, lighting and other logistical consideration.

Once they are sorted we can get on with the decor…

The Super Chic, Creative, Feminine Scandi Boho Home Office

If, like us at Du, you like pink and the tempered boho look, this is for you (above).

Lots of pastel pink and peach colours, some furry fabrics, a super modern chair, vintage accessories and flowers on the table.

Here is the near perfect set up – a good, well-designed chair that wouldn’t look out of place at a corporate board meeting, latest IT device, l-shaped desk and a board for notes.

And personal accessories to remind us we’re…… Working From Home!

Staying at Home: Keeping work and pleasure separate

If you’re a proper pro, who does not mix business with pleasure, you’ll most likely prefer this look: efficient, cool and checked.

With this design and layout you might, perhaps, just as well stay at the office.

It really is the professional set up at home, where business is kept well away from the rumble of family or personal life.

It’s a gorgeous and clean office set up with virtully no distractions.

Clean lines, unfussy, simple color scheme and entirely focused on business and the computer in front.

A professional corner at home like this allows you to ‘switch off’.

Few distraction, just focus.

However, it is also a little soulless, a little uninteresting…

Below is one of our favourite Home Office looks: the ultra minimalist and super Scandi Working From Home set-up.

It doesn’t come more Scandi than this stark, contrasty look.

Ice-cool and clean, it could be the set of some Scandi noir film.

It’s so pure it’s for the person who absolutely needs to clear their head before getting down to business…

It is for the super organised, tidy or the true aesthetic, someone for whom ambiance is perhaps more important than mere logistics.
