Home Office

Something Old and Something New?

Friday May 31, 2013

While researching different styles of design for home office, I've come across two that have similarities and are quite distinctive in their own right. Not only is steampunk becoming more popular in home office design but I see it's influence in crating and literature. It's a very unique look and may not be suitable for everyone. If you do have the space and would like your home office to have a some real personality - then steampunk may be for you!

The other design style that appeals to me and is a direct result of my favorite time period in literature is the Victorian style of design. It's another style that may not work for everyone and you do need a good sized home office space to really pull it off.

Our home offices may not always start out with a particular style in mind, but overtime many of us decide we do want a specific style either as a way to create a statement about ourselves and our likes or because it may really help us to work better with a unified theme to our home office.

I've often thought my home office was rather eclectic but realize it's really more chaotic and it's now time to to start looking at using a definite style for my work space. I don't know that I'd be comfortable with a minimalist approach as I do have the tendency to collecting items nor would an Asian inspired work space work for me.
