The office of Parisian couple Constance and Laurent is simple and luxe at the same time. The furniture’s clean lines and the architecture’s simplicity are complemented by a plush Moroccan rug, classic window treatments, and a bit of softness on the seat, courtesy of a sheepskin. You can create a similar look in your home with the items below.

  1. Curtains in a subdued gray color with just the right texture are quietly luxurious.
  2. A new chair that brings to mind classic, mid-century design.
  3. Keep magazines organized nearby for a quick break or a dose of inspiration.
  4. The sleek lines of this lamp look great with the rest of the furniture.
  5. Choose a roomy desktop with a drawer to give you plenty of space to spread out, and a place to stash all those pens and other little office necessities.
  6. Pick up a sheepskin (real or faux) to lend a bit of softness to hard seats.
  7. A colorful Moroccan rug brings in some interest without going too color or pattern-crazy.

Would you welcome an office like this into your home?
