If you have a spare room, why not create a nice comfortable home office when it’s not in use? It will provide you with a quiet place to conduct business while working from home. We’ve created a nice set-up for someone who loves the warm look of a vintage home office.
This desk and chair combo is a great place to start. Riverside’s Coventry desk has a classic two-tone appeal. File drawers hold legal-sized file folders, which is a nice touch if you are a home-based real estate agent or mortgage broker. Pair it up with Hooker’s Seven Seas chair with nail stud accents for that extra little classic luxury.
If you have the room for a bookcase, this Homelegance bookcase is a four-piece set that complements the Riverside desk quite nicely. Or opt for the matching Riverside Coventry bookcase if your office is a little tight on space.
For a home office with extra square footage, add a small sitting area where your clients can relax while you finish the paperwork. Go for a feminine vintage look with the Avenue Six accent chair in red, or try a neutral look with the Monarch Swirl accent chair in gray. Place the Lexington Monterey Sands accent table between a pair of chairs for added comfort.
If you are looking to completely change the look of your office, add a fresh coat of paint by way of a classic faux Venetian plaster finish. The soft look adds a subtle texture to the walls. A couple of finish options that work well with either scheme are a warm beige and a gray with a hint of blue. For accent colors, use the chair color as your guide. If you have opted against a sitting area, but still prefer either of the Venetian plaster finishes, teal is a great accent color that works with gray walls. For the beige walls, try accents in a rich shade such as autumn orange or deep dark purple.
