With an increasing number of us working from home, the interior design of our home study or ‘office’ is becoming significantly more important. We no longer require simply a space to do the odd bit of after hours work, this space can often be where we spend the majority of our week days.
Here at KR, we favour a neutral palette that is both calming and comfortable to spend time in. This does of course depend on your perspective and perhaps your line of work. Dramatic and bold colours and textures may be what inspires your work and allows you to perform best.
A great example of a home office with balance and personality is that of fashion designer, Monique l’Huillier, who’s office was featured on Elle Deco. The dark wood panelled walls with books and sumptuous velvet upholstery, adds a rich and luxurious feel. This is a room to sink into your work in, whilst still feeling feminine and light with the taupe lacquer desk and flowers on display.
The furniture within your home office will be fundamental to creating the desired aesthetic. Whether or not you choose an antique desk or a streamlined lacquer piece, will dramatically change the overall feel. A supplier that we often look to for quality, timeless furniture is B&B Italia. Their Maxalto range features a number of items ideal for a classic contemporary office.

A great source of inspiration to us at KR, is Christian Liaigre, the famed French Interior Designer who purveys ‘timelessness, calm beauty and subtle luxury’. His prolific work within Interiors combines his use of space and light with his love of local cultures and traditions.
Below is an image of Liaigre at his own desk, where we can see his refined, luxury style sit alongside a crafted sculpture and a contemporary art work. This epitomises how to create an ideal work space; neutral, luxury pieces with key items to add your personality.
