We have recently harped on about the increasing prominence of home offices. Rooms that were once considered an ‘add on’ are now becoming an absolute must. Even small apartments and urban homes with limited room are coming with a home work area that brings all the advantages of a home office in a space-savvy fashion. But for those who can afford to spare an entire, dedicated room for the home office, decorative and spatial choices are aplenty. These choices get even more exciting when you have a gorgeous ocean view or serene mountain view to make the most of!
Home offices with mountain views are obviously hard to find. Most homeowners prefer a view of the distant mountains from their living room, bedroom, kitchen or even dining space before they think about bringing it into the home office. But today, we shift our attention towards the blessed few who are lucky enough to have an office that overlooks the distant mountains or snow-covered peaks even as it sits just a few steps away from their living room! Even if you cannot replicate these home office designs for obvious reasons, there is still plenty of inspiration you can draw from. Enjoy!
Embrace the View
If you have a captivating view outside the home office window, then the best thing to do is to embrace it in an unassuming fashion. Focus on keeping the home office as simple and minimal as possible and make sure that the view of the mountains in the distances ends up becoming the showstopper of the setting. The more majestic and breathtaking the backdrop, the less you need to do with the room itself. Let the panoramic scenery outside take over by using floor-to-ceiling glass doors, large glass windows and create a seamless indoor-outdoor interplay where nature sets the mood.
Modern and Majestic
Combining a modern home office with a majestic view outside is all too easy. Take the same approach to decorating as we alluded to earlier and keep things uncomplicated. Even if you are not open to an idea of a home office with sweeping glass walls and a 360-degree view, you can still make the most of the spectacular scenery in the distance by using windows in a clever and curated fashion. Using bold colors along in these spaces is a touch risky unless you want to opt for themes like tropical, eclectic or traditional. Combine smart green accents and cozy rugs in bright hues with a neutral backdrop and you the perfect modern home office with mountain views.
Rustic Home Office with Mountain Views
It goes without saying that every time we see mountains outside the window there is a big part of us that feels like going down the rustic decorating path. The woodsy cabin style feels appropriate here and you can mix warm wooden surfaces with exposed brick wall sections, stone walls and even a lovely fireplace to give the home office a relaxing and inviting vibe. For the artist, writer and the creative mind in general, this will undoubtedly be a place that helps them relax while giving birth to inspiring new ideas!
