Home Office Inspiration

Whether it’s the scene of your 9-5, a haven for homework, or simply a great spot for a good book, creating a dedicated space for working from home can be key to achieving that elusive work-life balance. In the new home office – whatever form it might take – soft neutrals, oversized prints and colours from nature collaborate to create inviting, inspiring spaces.

Our carefully curated palette of 132 shades, with an intriguing story behind each colour name, will help you to choose colours you love for your home.


Light & Bright

Take ‘clean desk, clean mind’ one step further with focus-promoting neutrals like School House White, Wevet, and Pointing. Fresh and uncomplicated, these white paint colours work overtime to create beautifully versatile spaces, rooms that can declutter the mind during daylight hours and provide a backdrop for family time later in the day.

If plain white still feels a little stark, why not make lush florals your muse with our Helleborus paper in soft, subtle tones? A beautifully patterned wallpaper is a great middle ground between cosy and conference call-ready, especially for study areas and offices that double up as bedrooms.

Deep Focus

Dark tones feel incredibly inviting whether you're clocking in for the day or reading deep into the night. Go contemporary with contrasting prints, as in this eclectic study with its Enigma feature wall, or create an opulent feel with matching woodwork.

With its velvety Railings walls, this dining-room-meets-workspace feels smart and business-like during work hours but makes a glamorous backdrop for intimate dinners when the day is done. Meanwhile, the same shade in a more minimal living room feels cool and contemporary.

Let Nature In

Working from home can mean missing out on interacting with nature. So, when it’s hard to get outside, why not bring the outside in? This Green Smoke office, which mirrors the greenery outside the window through its wall colour, is a perfect example of how to do that.

It’s not all about greenery, though – try transforming an unused corner into an impromptu office with relaxed Broccoli Brown, or marking out a space for work in a communal dining room with earthy Deep Reddish Brown. Whichever you choose, bringing the colours of nature to your indoors can help you feel just that little bit closer to the world outdoors


Mix It Up

Walls: Shaded White No.201 in Modern Emulsion; Skirting: Shaded White No.201 in Modern Eggshell; Desk and Floor: Stone Blue No.86 in Modern Eggshell

Multi-use spaces with the flexibility for both work and play – that’s what a great home office is made of. And, with our super-tough Modern Eggshell finish, which lets you transform furniture, floors and more with all the colours you love, an inspirational workspace is easy to create in almost any part of your home.

Whether it’s a foldaway wall desk, a built-in alcove, or just an empty corner of the room, try marking it out with a different colour – or even a fun shape, like below – to visually define different areas for office hours and after hours.
