Design tips for decorating a creative style office

Here’s how to achieve the creative aesthetic room of your dreams.

What’s the best way to design and decorate a creative office?

The design of your workspace can be as crucial to your productivity as your morning cup of coffee. Whether you're carving out a corner in an open-concept living room or in the process of a remodel to create a dedicated office space, these are our tips to help you create a space that works (pun intended) for you:

  • Desk & Chair: The cornerstone of any office, your desk provides a designated workspace for your computer, monitor, books, and other essentials. It often serves as the focal point of an office or study, so place it where it best suits your workflow, ideally near natural light to boost mood and productivity.
  • Bookshelves or Storage: Every office needs storage. The material you choose for your storage can really help lean into the desired creative style of your workspace.
  • Seating: Extra seating options, like an accent armchair, or sofa can add a cozy touch and provide a spot for guests or a change of scenery for you. Position these to encourage conversation without disrupting your work zone.
  • Area Rug: An area rug adds warmth and can define a workspace within a larger room. Place it under your desk and chair to anchor the space, ensuring it's large enough to allow for easy chair movement.
  • Paint or Wallpaper: Select a color or pattern that sets the desired mood for the office and complements the creative style you want to achieve. We are partial to covering walls, ceilings, and trim in a uniform paint color to create a cohesive look. Or consider an accent wall behind the desk to serve as a focal point.
  • Decorative Lighting: Combine task, ambient, and accent lighting for a layered lighting scheme. A desk lamp is common for those late work nights burning the midnight oil. Consider the placement of lighting fixtures to eliminate shadows and evenly light the space. Dimmer switches can adjust the mood.
  • Curtains or Blinds: Window treatments not only help control the light and provide privacy but also serve to tie the room's design together. They offer an opportunity to inject color, texture, and pattern into the living space, making it more inviting and personalized. Whether flowing and sheer for a light, airy feel or rich and textured for a more luxurious look, curtains play a pivotal role in setting the tone and atmosphere of the office. Don’t forget the curtain rod!

Remember, the best office design is one that reflects your personal work style and needs. Experiment with different arrangements until you find the perfect balance of functionality and comfort. If you need an extra hand, check out our step-by-step guide on Home Office Design.

What materials and home decor should I use to achieve a creative office design?

The concept of"creative" in interior design is as diverse as personal tastes themselves, mirroring the ambiguity that often surrounds terms like"contemporary" or"trendy" within the design lexicon. Creative interiors can be eclectic spaces that mix-and-match different styles and time periods, or they can be new takes on classic design styles.

Creative style is a celebration of individuality, personal expression and creativity. We’ll always be the first to tell you that design rules are meant to be broken. So throw out every piece of design advice you’ve heard, and go wild! This freedom allows for the exploration of bold color schemes that defy the usual palettes, the incorporation of avant-garde or custom-made furniture pieces that serve as focal points, and the integration of unique art pieces that tell a story or evoke emotion.

Creative spaces typically nurture innovation and inspiration. The layout and flow of creative spaces are often non-traditional, designed to foster creativity (duh), whether through cozy reading nooks, open art studios, or dynamic workspaces.
