If you are one of the many people who have decided to try your hand at freelance work, the home doubles up as a nice office and by delegating one room to your business enterprise, you can have all the trappings of a functional office. While the primary role of any office space is functionality, the general ambience should be uplifting and with a blend of modern and antique furnishings, it is possible to create a unique working space that makes you want to start work every day.

The Vintage Or Antique Look

It isn’t written in stone that your home office must be decorated with modern furnishings and for many entrepreneurs, antique furnishings make the space feel more lived in and homely. The obvious place to start is the writing desk, of which there are many elegant units that date back more than a century. Buying an antique desk is also a wise investment and if you take good care of the item, it will no doubt increase in value as time passes. There is something unique about a Mac Air Pro laptop sitting on an elegant antique walnut or mahogany writing desk - a stylish blend of old and new that somehow go together well.

Antique Bookcase

The office at home is the ideal setting for a stylish antique bookcase that can double up as a place to put art objects and wooden treens. An antique secretaire bureau bookcase makes for an ideal furnishing that is both stylish and very functional and with a few antique chairs, you can create an ideal corner where you can complete your books at the end of the month. If you think that mixing old with new is not acceptable, take a look at some of the fine examples of vintage and antique furniture blended with a contemporary setting that can be found online.

Antique Or Vintage Wall Art

You could settle for an antique map of the world, onto which you can plot your global business expansion, or some old black and white prints of a busy London street in the 1920s, which never go out of fashion.  If you prefer something a little more up-to-date, how about a touch of abstract? There are many online suppliers of fine wall art and whether you prefer antique or modern designs, there is something to suit all tastes. There is an informative article that examines ways to make wall art choices in a home-office setting which you can refer to.

Personal Space

The home office differs from the traditional office in as much as there are not likely to be any visitors, which does allow you to be selfish regarding furnishings and fittings. With only you and perhaps your partner using the room, you do not need to give any thought to the overall look and if you feel it works for you, then that’s all you need to consider.

At the end of the day, you are the only person who matters when designing a home-office and whether you prefer a simplistic look or something sophisticated, you can source everything you need from online suppliers. Mixing antique with modern furnishings can certainly create a unique work space and one that feels right for you.
