Work your space

Adapting a space in our homes from where we can work remotely is something many of us have been figuring out over the past months. Whether you have an entire room or a tiny corner, we've got wallpaper inspiration for defining a dedicated space where you can work efficiently and be creative.

Soften the look of a functional home office by making the furniture part of the scheme. A lick of paint to complement the room decor, a cupboard to store the tech and pretty filing boxes mean that when work is done this space is still an inviting corner of the room.

No space for a desk? A wide shelf in an alcove can make a useful workspace. Paint it to match the skirting and it sits smartly in the room.

If your best study or work option is a tight corner, use the opportunity to define your style. Just as you might decorate a small bathroom with a slightly wilder or more expensive wallpaper, do the same with your corner office!

Dining spaces adapt perfectly to work spaces. Invest in a sturdy box to transfer your day job out of the way when it’s time to relax and eat.

This dedicated work space is completely functional but beautifully informal. The oversized lamp and cosy blanket keep the practical area feeling homely.

Is it even a work space?! Minimalism is perfect for multifunctional living where every piece (and the place in which it sits) is well considered.

When the bedroom or guest room is the place you are least likely to be interrupted, a dressing table can double as a desk. Sit as close to the window as you can and make sure you have good window dressings to keep out the chill when the sun goes down.
