Mon Concept Habitation - London
This project is the result of research and work lasting several months. This magnificent Haussmannian apartment will inspire you if you are looking for refined and original inspiration. Here the lights are decorative objects in their own right. Sometimes they take the form of a cloud in the children's room, delicate bubbles in the parents' or floating halos in the living rooms. The majestic kitchen completely hugs the long wall. It is a unique creation by eggersmann by Paul & Benjamin. A very important piece for the family, it has been designed both to allow them to meet and to welcome official invitations. The master bathroom is a work of art. There is a minimalist Italian stone shower. Wood gives the room a chic side without being too conspicuous. It is the same wood used for the construction of boats: solid, noble and above all waterproof.

Workplace by day, music room and relaxation area by night. This space has to work doubly hard and allow the owner to separate leisure time and work. A simple rearrangement of the space meant a better contained work area, using casual seating and a large rug to zone the relaxation area, quite literally allowing the owner to put the working day behind him. Soft grey with hints of rust and terracotta keep the space warm and cosy, with rustic industrial furniture to provide a masculine vibe.

Culwick & Co.
The client wasnt sure what to do with this little nook, the window was so lovely but the space had just an accent chair. The result was this beautiful bespoke little desk area, with storage for her books and a little area to work on. Light and bright to open the space up with a lovely accent colour chair. This was a design and build project.

Whether you work from home or need a study space to get things done out of hours, finding room in the house for a home office makes for a valuable addition to many homes. Having a contemporary home office can seem like the best of both worlds, but it’s important to keep in mind that this should be a productive space that keeps out the many distractions of home. You may not have the luxury of a dedicated room to turn into your contemporary office room or home library, so choose your space wisely to ensure privacy and adequate storage. A carefully designed corner in your living room or an alcove can be made into a productive and stylish study space. Your home office furniture with the desk in the centre of your design, needs to include both work surface space and storage ideas – never underestimate how quickly a computer desk can become cluttered with stationery and box files.

How do I find contemporary home office ideas?


For any basic home office or study set up there are just two essential office furniture items: desks and seating. If you will be a frequent home worker then you will also want to invest in nice desk lighting, filing cabinets or bookcases. Desks need to be large enough to accommodate all the tools of your trade. The material your desk is made from will set the tone for your home office design, whether you opt for glass, traditional teak, luxurious mahogany or affordable pine. Investing in a good quality task chair is imperative for the office – there are some great ergonomic chairs at every price level that will help to compensate for our modern, computer-bound lifestyles. If you have room for an office chair other than your computer chair, choose something comfortable but still supportive for when you need a break from your desk. Ideas that include a nice bookcase design and wall shelves mean your contemporary study can double as a home library. For a truly luxurious home office you could consider fitted office furniture which will maximise the space you have and create a permanent space in your home dedicated to work.

How to find ideas for my contemporary home office decor?


The right ambience will make your home office a place you enjoy spending time without taking away your focus. Choose a colour scheme that encourages productivity for you – that may be a palette that is calming and restful, or you might feel more inspired by bright invigorating colours and graphic prints. When decorating the walls, look out for items that create the right studious vibe for the room. Wall maps, pinboards that can serve as mood or inspiration boards, and world clocks can all be great options when considering office design ideas. Practical necessities like desk lamps needn’t be unattractive – there a range of stunning designer lamps available. After all your hard work to make this a productive space, clutter can be very distracting so limit the items on your home office desk to a couple of your favourite photographs and perhaps a trinket or two to stimulate the mind. Papers and office supplies should be tucked away, so keep the space tidy and maintain your office as a calm work space that promotes focus – all the better to see your lovely decor with.

How do I create a contemporary home library?


If the stuffiness of home office desks, swivel chairs and filing cabinets is too much for you, a contemporary library space may be more your thing when it comes to study, work or even relaxation. Libraries are peaceful and quiet places, and with careful consideration you can recreate this in an area of your home. Books are obviously going to feature heavily in your home library design, and you’ll need a place to store them. A bookcase or nice shelving can create room dividers if you don’t have a whole room to dedicate to a home library, and the benefit of bookcases is that they are movable – you don’t have to stick with one layout it it’s not working. If you don’t want to take up space, shelves hung on the walls will work just as well, and if you really want that authentic library feel then you’ll have to go with built in bookshelves that stretch from floor to ceiling. Next all you need is a comfy chair in amongst the books or a desk if you plan to do work or study from your library. Remember that contemporary library areas can be slotted in all around the home – under the stairs, in a corner of your living room or kitchen, as a mezzanine or in a small spare room.
