Many of us are accustomed to waking up every morning and going to work. Our work spaces are often in an office, with a desk, a computer, some paperwork and various post-it notes stuck to the bottom of our screens that remind us of things to do during the day. Sometimes, however, it happens that work becomes too much, and unfortunately, we end up taking some tasks home with us to complete after dinner. This is why most people reserve a space in their homes for an office or study. This tends to be that one area where we often find a computer, maybe a pair of speakers for music, books, and some pieces of paper with phone numbers or an addresses scribbled on them. 

Today, we are going to talk about the studios that we find within the confines of our own four walls. For students, it is both an area of joy and sorrow, where work and leisure time is undertaken. It is this same space that we bring incomplete work home, or read an online journal for a couple of hours. So, without further ado, we are going to explore some wonderful examples of home studio and office design. 

Double up

Very often, the study coincides with the bedroom, especially if the area is reserved for boys. Many students, due to lack of space, are studying and sleeping in the same place. It is always very important, however, that the environment is comfortable and conducive to concentration. Therefore, you should only use neutral colors and decor that is not too heavy. This is the first step to ensure that those who live and work in the same environment can live comfortably. Another crucial factor is tidiness: generally speaking, boys tend to be a bit messier than girls, littering clothes and shoes around the room. Studies have suggested that it is not advisable to study in a room that is chaotic and messy because it disrupts our thought processes with distractions and objects that are not related to the task on hand. 

Small space, big dreams

One of the most successful models in furnishing choices for our studies is the chair with wheels: practical, comfortable and very functional. In this example, we see how space is quite limited, but it is just enough to accommodate a laptop, and possibly books for the preparation of exams. In this study, the concept of protection has been played with; you can see how everything is housed in a niche, to enable the person to find greater concentration without distractions. 

In front of a window

Although similar in size and concept, this study, unlike the previous one, has been realised in front of the window. The idea: a source of natural light promotes commitment and does not strain the eyes. As seen in previous photos, the colour palette always remains neutral and muted. These are the best colours to ensure concentration and tranquility. 

Non solo libri

Within the words study, a vast number of tasks can be performed under a single room title. You can, in fact, study, work or even produce music in this same space. Many DJs and producers, in fact, create their music within this environment; a veritable temple of sound where keyboards, drum machines, synthesizers and many other machinery, fill every single space. In this photo we can deduce that we are using the study, not only for work, but also to practice and play an instrument. 

Another very important element to be included within this context is the library: wallets, briefcases, books and much more, will find their ideal space within these barriers to help us to maintain order and cleanliness. 

A whole room to learn

Studioata, design studio from Turin, presents their concept of a study. The lines are visibly minimal and, all the characteristics we know to make up a study are present. There is a desk, comfortable chair, a bookcase and very few distractions to promote good concentration. To separate the environment with the rest of the house, a beautiful wall clad in oak is both unobtrusive and adds to the feeling of calm and modernity to the room.
