Home office luxury - sleek & chic...

This simply sleek and chic home office belongs to Jimmy Choo's president..Tamara Mellon. It has always been one of my favorites, although it is just for looks. No paper work aloud here!
The colors, its simplicity and eclectic decor are all about style!

This is the home office of the one and only Monique Lhuillier. The charcoal grey walls make this room feel warm and sophisticated...and hide the built ins perfectly. This office is more functional and practical.. there is actually storage space! I also like the white desk top with lucite legs. The legs make the desk seem like it's floating and creates an airy feel in small room. Perfect furniture selection for this space.

I'm sure you've all seen this office before...The infamous Nate Berkus office. The one thing I really love about this room are the walls. From what I can remember, the walls are metallic leaf and are original to the space.

This home office belongs to Architect Natalia Bianchi and her sister Alessis who live together in this Milanese palace in Milan...Yes, I did say "Palace". Cool blues, greys and green...a parchment desk, antique French bergeres, floors of old Tuscan stone...just beautiful!

  3. Gorgeous but I do remember Nate saying it was so unrealistic because it was no where near the chaos of real life. That made me feel so much better. My office is organized but still not pristine.

  4. That is a very luxurious home office. I wish my office looks like that. I always wanted to remodel my office and transform it into something like that. I just don't have enough money for that big renovation.

  5. It's totally fun to work in a place where you yourself had the authority to remodel. Being in a higher position in our company, they gave me one of their rooms for myself to have a little privacy and hold various meeting on how to improve the operations of our Washington, DC branch.


    Having a good meeting space (Washington, DC) means a lot on keeping their creative juices flowing and being motivated to state how they feel on the subject matter.

  6. Working in these kinds of offices will make you more revived and inspired in doing your daily office tasks. And I'm also thankful that our office space (Atlanta) has a great working environment. Also, our office and meeting rooms in Charlotte, NC was recently renovated to add color and fun while employees are working.

  7. Be practical when buying home office furnitures. Do not let the style overcome your purpose of buying a piece. Functionality should always come first.

  8. Home office chairs should be able to provide comfort and style at the same time. Check for adjustable chair. It caters to your posture so you feel relaxed even at the office.

  9. Useful and informing to know. If it wasn't for this post I would have never guessed. Thank you for the effort in putting everything so neetly.

  10. It doesn't look like an office at all. It's more like a house that's being made to look like an office. The problem with that is you may feel over-relaxed and even fall asleep while working. Now that's a no-no!
