home office decorating tips


A wood surface, some hardware and galvanized pipe is all you need to DIY a workbench or desk. Industrial yet lovely, this is an intermediate DIY project that results in a striking piece of furniture. Customize the wood top with stain or even Mod Podge or polyurethane and beautiful paper, and paint the pipe legs the hue of your choice.

Color of the Week: Behr Black Sapphire

A not-quite-navy not-quite-black, Behr Black Sapphire from our Spring Fling color palette is the perfect moody hue. It’s great painted on cabinets or built ins in a glossy finish, or matte on a wall. 

Functional and fantastic. We love the color, chandelier and view from this home office. Creating a desk space with endless cabinet storage helps to minimize clutter. Maintaining a tidy office was never easier.

Color of the Week: Ralph Lauren Black Dose

Dramatic and moody or traditional and elegant. Whatever your take, Ralph Lauren’s Black Dose is a color saturated with style. We hope the inspiration photos above show you how to incorporate the hue in your home, whether through trim, an accent wall or all over.


A designer’s office. Paint is used to tie together seating and storage. Trinkets and print inspiration are displayed on a large mood board, and books are treated like decor, arranged in multiple vignettes on the bookshelves. 

Recognize those mirrors on the back wall? They’re from this DIY.
