Working from home is a more and more frequent thing than before, and even those of us who have never tried it, started enjoying that. That’s why the topic of organizing and comfortable, functional and stylish home office or at least a nook is so hot today. If you aren’t sticking to some particular style in your home and just want it to look up-to-date, a contemporary home office is a nice option.

What Are The Main Colors Of A Contemporary Home Office?

Contemporary style is defined by simplicity, subtle sophistication and clean lines. Use neutrals, black and white as the main colors in your home office. Seems boring to you? Never mind! Such a palette can punched up and accented with bright and bold colors that play against neutrals. With walls painted in a basic neutral, you have a wonderful backdrop for bold colored accessories or dark touches if you want more drama.

What Is Peculiar About A Contemporary Home Office?

The most obvious and distinctive element of a contemporary interior is the line. Whether straight vertical or horizontal lines or curved shapes, strong visible lines are evident in any contemporary-style home office. Think how to integrate bold lines into your home office to give it a more contemporary feel – with shelves on the wall, curved furniture or some artworks.

What Furniture Do I Need For A Contemporary Home Office?

Furniture pieces should make a bold statement but at the same time be simple and uncluttered, without curves or decoration. Smooth, clean, geometric shapes are essential. Upholstered furniture is often done in black, white, or other neutral tones, using the natural fibers found in wool, cotton, linen, silk, jute to add textural appeal. Pillows in clean geometric shapes add a shot of color and texture. You may use a basic background and shout out with your favorite color on a furniture piece that stands out. Go basic, bare, bold, and structural, skip all things small and cute.

What Lighting To Choose For A Contemporary Home Office?

Track lighting and recessed lighting help to wash a wall in light. In both home renovations and new construction, consider installing cove lighting or indirect light. Include color and metallic elements on the light fixtures. You may also incorporate some spotlights that are directed to artworks or posters and accent them.

What Other Design Elements To Use For A Contemporary Home Office?

Generous use of metal, stone, and opaque or clear glass works well in a room decorated in a contemporary style. To soften and warm-up space, use heavily textured fabrics in plain colors for window treatments, pillows, or rugs. In contemporary rooms, plants and flowers should be large and dramatic in simple containers. If the space allows, think of adding a bold statement plant in a floor planter, it will be a great solution. Keep the soil neat with pebbles and rocks placed on top.
