Mid-century Ideas for Modern Home Office


1950s-inspired home office
Inspired by post-war simplicity and the beauty of natural shapes and materials, mid-century modern is the perfect choice for serene 21st-century homes. Follow our steps to create the same serene feel in your home office.


Use a cool contrasting colour
Team warm wood tones with a cooler contrast, like this dusky duck-egg colour, on the walls – it brings out the depth of the natural wood grain. When layering wood on wood keep it simple, this will have more impact than mixing in accessories in other colour finishes.


Mix tones of wood
When using wood don’t worry about matching shades – mixing it up gives a relaxed feel. Aim to keep the main pieces of furniture in the same mid tone, then accessorise with all shades from light to dark, using these as accent hues.


Make your desk the star
If you have space, position your desk in the middle of your home office and define the area with a geometric patterned rug. A streamlined desk, with built-in shelves and drawers, is a practical and stylish choice.


Add sleek storage
This shelf unit has the round edges and clean lines that typify 1950s style. The pendant light, hung low over the desk, will illuminate your work area and draw attention to it.


Use wooden materials
Why stop at furniture? There are loads of great wooden home office accessories on the high street.
