The pop of color is inspiring! In a larger space, one might try a layered look with rugs like this:
These flatweaves layer very well!

to have a flowing desk and chairs on the outside you need a room that is at least 11 feet. you need 3 feet for each chairs area and at least a 28" desk.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Supporters of LicensingInterior design student Jill Roberson Awbrey shares her stance on the issue: "As an interior design student who has also practiced interior design prior to working towards a degree, I find some value [in licensing]. There is a big difference between decorating and designing. Any time you are dealing with building codes, there should be a license [requirement]. Decorating is a talent that cannot be learned through schooling, but architectural and structural elements should be taught, the same way as plumbing or electrical knowledge is taught."Somewhere in the MiddleOthers in the industry say a fine line distinguishes professional interior designers who are educated in surface maintenance, light fixture selection, fireproofing, soundproofing, material types and durability, and green issues, among other things, from decorators who may or may not have as much training but can compose a balanced, beautiful space. Green certified interior designer Tineke Triggs says that although she doesn't think it's necessary to have a license to decorate a home, it's important for an interior designer to have a licensed engineer or architect in the picture if structural materials are moved or remodeled. "Personally, I think experience is really the most important factor to consider," says Triggs.A general contractor from Oasis Design and Remodeling says, "Good design is not just about throw pillows, it is about balance, scale, lighting, color, among other things. Some aspects of that are taught, some are innate." Houzz user cjbirk adds, "a license won't make a designer better, but in hiring a licensed designer, the client will be assured that the professional has met the minimum competency of the profession."Houzzers, tell us: Should a license be required to practice interior design? Please share your thoughts below.
Lisa Frederick added this to So Your Style Is: Global
The Approach: A Standout PatternTake away the wing chairs and this office would feel like a modern-eclectic hybrid. But the suzani fabric that dresses their backs takes the look on a journey to central Asia. It's so eye catching that it dominates the design and imbues the space with global chic. Spin the globe: For additional layers of worldly style in a room like this, you could have a little fun with textiles. Upholster the fronts of the wing chairs in an ikat or batik print, and drape Indian sari fabric or African kente cloth along the windows. Swapping the art for a grouping of tribal masks or a Balinese mirror would round out the jaunt abroad.
Use the combo in a surprising space. It's not often you see candy-colored furniture in an industrial space, which makes interior designer Tineke Triggs' office all the more fun. She pulled the furniture colors straight from the suzani pattern on the chairs.

3. Max out on color. Color lovers, breathe a sigh of relief, because your office doesn’t have to be a lineup of neutrals. This mix of sunflower-yellow and Barbie-pink paintwork with a splash of patterned wallpaper is bright and cheerful to say the least, and will certainly keep you on your toes during the midafternoon slump.
