Back to school usually means new backpacks, lunchboxes, and clothes. But this year, it might…
Given the situation we’re currently facing, working from home is the new norm. We’ve shared our home office design inspiration and tips for creating an inspiring existing home workspace, but now, we want to share three looks that our designers have put together for you to create a stylish home office setup.
If you aren’t properly equipped with an office space at home, or if you simply want to take this opportunity to refresh your home workspace, we’ve put together these looks for under $500 with our designers’ favorite picks. You can shop the look or use recommended products to complement your existing setup.
With these stylish and practical finds, the result will be a dedicated workspace that will keep you motivated and inspired.

In this casual, cozy office, a mix of natural materials and contrasting metals provide a perfect juxtaposition to create a space where you’ll feel inspired and motivated.
A sleek wicker chair is the centerpiece, and a casual ottoman can be used by yourself as a foot prop or as extra seating for a guest. A Mid-Century Modern desk and contemporary metal lamp give this home office setup a tailored touch, and a wire metal grid on the wall above your desk is a perfect way to showcase photos, important info, small reminders, etc.
For a sophisticated yet modern home office setup, our designers love combining sleek furniture with a bold wall color.
Here, a desk with a wood finish and slim black legs will set the tone in your workspace. Drawers in the desk help to keep everything clean and organized, and a supportive chair with coasters allows you to be comfortable when you work.
Our designers think a bold wall in your office works great in this setup. We recommend Sherwin-Williams’ Hale Navy. Once painted, you can hang some decorative frames to create a gallery wall, too. Options are endless — you can print your favorite quotes or photos — anything and everything that inspires you is fair game!
BEACHY AND SOPHISTICATED
Combining neutral hues with lots of texture and a piece of beachfront wall art will have you channeling the ocean’s relaxation in your home workspace in no time.
A sleek wooden chair with a textured seat and a round marble table are a great multipurpose solution, providing more space to work than a traditional desk, plus a more unique look for your office.
Complement these pieces with a ladder shelf on the wall that you can style yourself with your favorite books, photos and momentos, plus a woven basket for storage and a beachy photo that makes you happy.
We hope you’re inspired to create a work-from-home setup that you love with these ideas from our DKORistas!
