A Vintage-Inspired Home Office

My husband and I have a dream, and a very real goal, to buy a house that we can retire in. On my list of things I'd love for the house to include is an extra bedroom that I could turn into a beautiful home office. I envision a very Instagram-worthy desk, a place to store all of the PR samples I get, and some pretty tufted accent chairs: where I can enjoy coffee breaks with my husband, who luckily also works from home.

When I get inspiration from vintage home offices on the web, I'm most attracted to spaces with a touch of modern glam. My husband and I both like transitional decor - old meets new.

How to Decorate Your Home with Burgundy

To get a traditional look, pair burgundy home decor with rich chocolate brown furniture and bronze accessories. Even with traditional decor, you can add in more color with the burgundy. Try a rustic sage green or a muted dusk blue. If you want a more worldly feel, add in bold colors and gold accents to get a Moroccan look. For a modern take, you can pair burgundy with black and silver.
