What a great office! I love the transitional style of the furniture and the palette of charcoal gray and periwinkle. Notice the placement of the desk with a workspace behind the desk that holds a desktop computer. This is a great way to keep unsightly wires out of sight and against a wall.
The more weight an object has, the more you have to play to get the balance right. The blue ottoman and office chair in this room are the stars of this show — they have a bit of weight to them due to their solid shape and deep color. The dark wallpaper in the background balances the weight of the foreground. Of course, with all that weight, something has to give or it'll feel like a medieval cave. Whites, ivories and creams lighten up the space. Medium-size furniture legs, lamp bases and chandeliers ease things up a bit.
