uirky accessories are the secrete for a study with a relaxed feel. Add a sprinkling of black-and-white photographs, flea-market finds, scale models and small knick-knacks, and put them on your desk, worktop or even the floor. The overall vibe will be loosely retro, yet with your own creative touch. This is precisely how you can turn your study in an extremely personal and intimate space. And you can round-off the whole scheme with a minimalist chair and a wooden stool (which you can also use as a coffee table).

Style notes

Sculptural ornaments.

African statues, sculptures in steel mesh, horse figurines and vintage drafting tools. It’s up to you, as long as they are vintage finds, unconventional pieces and possibly handmade for a unique touch.

A neutral colour scheme.

White, beige, grey, timber and accents in black to highlight lines and shapes. This is how you can add an elegant touch to your office, which is always fresh and can be personalised in many different ways.

A minimal chair.

Instead of the same old office chair, go for a minimalist armchair in Scandinavian style. Cosy and chic.

Iconic armchair.

An striking armchair will soften a stern office, go for something like the one designed in the fifties by Arne Jacobsen: iconic, with a “hugging” silhouette and timeless.
