12 Fashion Inspired Workspace Design Ideas

This week is the start of a new season - And with a new season comes fresh color stories and new perspectives on wardrobes and living spaces. While reorganizing your home for Fall and the upcoming holiday season, also take a good look at your home office workspace. You'll be needing a place to write dinner invitations, holiday cards, thank you notes - maybe even a recipe or two. Your workspace could be an entire room devoted to your home office, or it could be as simple as a writing desk behind your living room sofa or at your bedroom window. Your desk can be as meaningful as a family heirloom desk passed down to you, or as noble as a thrift find dining table you scored on a Saturday afternoon. With either, your desk is supplying a surface for your computer, laptop or tablet, plus someplace to write, with a comfortable chair and good lighting.

As times have changed, so too have interiors, with the need shifting now to more flex-spaces and multi-functional rooms. To help inspire you to re-look at your home office workspace, I've pulled together a 12 runway looks to translate into workspace interiors for inspiration...

Follow the Curve
Having a major coat crush this Fall, and the color + lines of this coat from Kaufmanfranco's 2014 Fall Collection is at the top of the list! Love the pairing for this room: The coat line mimic the curved desk, with the boots being the Jean Louis Denoit curved desk legs - and also just overall love the warm color palette!

Pattern Play
 Not all runway looks need to be inspiration translating so literally - for example as above, the grid pattern of plaid from Christian Dior Fall 2014 can be inspiration for a chalkboard gallery wall - complete with empty painted frames to highlight important notes or messages for you or your family.

Tommy Times Two - Sleek Americana
 How is this take on Americana style? I admire the creativity and courage of runway looks from Thom Browne (left) and I especially love the clean minimalism style of Tommy Hilfiger's Miami home office, as featured in Architectural Digest. You almost can't get anymore "Miami" than the crisp look of white, and a splash of pop-artist Romero Britto!
