Get the Look: Design the Home Office of Your Dreams

A detailed guide on how to get your desired design look regardless of your budget.

We know you love the inspiration that comes from our Home of the Week profiles — who wouldn’t be inspired by these gorgeous model homes?

We realize, though, that these model homes are designed by pros with some quality items. You’d never be able to emulate that look in your own home — or can you? Of course! We’ve created “Get the Look” to help you design the home of your dreams — and we’ve kept your budget in mind. Now you can create that designer look in your home with help from New Home Source.

In our first edition, we’re taking inspiration from 
Beazer Homes’ Yorkshire plan at The Estates at Devonshire in Mullica Hill, N.J. We just love how Beazer’s designers used a framed world map to set the tone for the model’s home office. The focal point of the room, the map is bordered by rustic metal and wood bookshelves that are striking, yet understated. The use of two paint colors (the ceiling’s white and the walls a light grey) creates and warm and inviting place to get some work done or to get started on the newest book you just ordered. Enjoy your new office!
