It’s been a while since I’ve put together an office decor inspiration post and I know how well received they are, so today I decided to focus on a popular home improvement choice on Pinterest – the black and white office space. Super simple, with Scandinavian design elements running throughout, I love how modern this style of interior is without being too cold.
This trend seems to come around every season, each time updated with little changes here and there. This season it’s the use of rustic fabrics and finishes, as well as the addition of natural sources such as wood and plant life to add interest.
The key is to keep furniture streamlined and paired back, but remember, just because the palette is muted, it doesn’t mean the space has to be boring. Danish furniture label, BoConcept, for example, has some amazing pieces of statement furniture. This is one for my Scottish readers, but I know the brand has opened an amazing store in Glasgow with a huge range of both home and commercial furniture.
Regardless of whether you’re painting your walls black, or keeping them a stark white, detail is key. I love the use of typography prints and black and white photographs to create a gallery wall above your desk. Perhaps add a Berber style rug if you have wooden floors to warm the space up and don’t forget about storage for your desk. And remember, this isn’t the sort of space that warrants loads of clutter, so be ruthless and throw away any rubbish you don’t need or want.
Are you a fan of the monochrome trend? Here’s how you can achieve the look in your own home with a few select pieces from BoConcept. I’m not sure which piece I love the best, but if I had to choose it would be this gorgeous black desk.
