Who doesn’t dream of working from home – or saying goodbye to the commute and to office politics? The desire to set up shop at home can be irresistible. Luckily, it’s a dream many have fulfilled and here are some of our design ideas for home office Scandi style.
At DU we do prefer the creative process or working with others in an office setting, but sometimes we have to catch up with business at home – then it’s great to have a nice environment that inspires us. It’s an opportunity to work in surroundings that please them and bring out the best in everybody.
Having a spare room to turn into a home office is useful, but often a luxury. Here we show some of our favourite looks and home office 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 devices, lighting and other logistical consideration. Then 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 in a glass office block, latest IT device, L-shaped desk and a board for notes. And personal accessories to remind us we are…… Working From Home!
Design ideas for home office: 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 and tumble of family or personal life. It’s a gorgeous and clean office with virtually no distractions.
Clean lines, unfussy, simple color scheme and a look and feel that is entirely focused on business. A professional corner at home like this allows you to ‘switch off’. 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 setting of a Scandi noir film. 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.
