How To Create A Colourful & Rustic Home Office

As I work from home, my office space is one of the most important rooms in the whole apartment. I need it to be colourful (OK, that was a given!), practical and energising for all those long hours in front of the laptop. So, when I happened upon this colourful and rustic home office, I knew I had to share it here on Bright.Bazaar. The scheme is an effortless mix of weathered, rustic materials like metal and bare wood. paired with brightly painted gloss pieces and rag-like textiles. It's these colourful additions that give this room it's heart and personality: the visual surprise of the two colourful chairs brings a new angle to what would otherwise be a generic, paint-by-numbers industrial meets rustic scheme. The two chairs also serve to soften the harder, rougher vibe that flows through the rest of the room. Laying the rag rug in the centre of the room makes good use of the free space to bright another hit of hue into the scheme. By opting for a rag-style rug, as opposed to a high pile wool rug, it means this key textile piece sits comfortably alongside the heavier industrial furniture. This is because it brings just enough comfort and tactile texture without being too much of a juxtaposition with the more rustic pieces; pushing this contrast further would compete with the statement already created between the gloss bright chairs and the metal and wooden desk.

  4. I love how playful and happy the place feels! Who says industrial spaces have to be all hard edges and in shades of grey and black!! love the pops of bright, cheerful colors, and I too love that vignette ... of course extra brownie points for super cool storage for fabrics! ISO that for myself!!

  9. I think I would enjoy going to work a lot more if my office looked a little something like this! It's got an air of 'organised chaos' which I adore! Those beautiful pendants stole the show for me!

  12. Great space, love the lights and the addition of bright colours makes it such a cheery space. Don't you find you're so much more productive when in harmony with the space around you. Rustic furniture is so great to jazz up and bring texture and colour to your rooms and you've got the balance just right - fab :O)

  16. I love the yellow chair (I am a yellow fan:) - This office space is fab indeed. And those roadsigns - OHHH.
    I too work from home, but my space is a far cry from this though, thanks for the inspiration - and have a sunny day. Here it is a grey-out if there is such a word:)

  23. Oh! The first time I saw this home office I had to find more about the designer so I discovered her and she has a blog:
    http://in-myhouse.blogspot.com
    you should definetely check out more of their home if you haven't already.
    They also have an e-shop where they sell amazing things though I 'm not sure if they ship outside Sweeden.
    Cheers Will!
