How To: Style Your Home Office With A Cowhide Area Rug

Two words that I really love how they go together are “Home Office”

Add a cowhide area rug and your home office goes from nice to gorgeous-place-to-work-and-hang-even-when-you-don’t-need-to in seconds!

The softness and uneven shape give a relaxed feel and the hair adds tons of texture. Plus, it’s always nice to have something soft under your feet (let’s face it, at your home studio you won’t be wearing shoes 100% of the time)

Here are some perfect examples on how to make that cowhide rug work in your favor while you work, right there, at home:

Mixing different tones of wood and different era styles works great if it’s subtle. It looks fresh and effortless, allowing you to use the best pieces you can find.

The gray hide on this photo helps blend the vintage desk with the chaise and the 50’s chair.

This brown hide warms up the whole room. The white floors are fantastic, but can seem too cold around all the wood. The great addition is the white chair that brings together the whole room by adding contrast between the gorgeous chocolate brown hide and the floor.

Details, details, details! The orange little touches here and there with all the white are tied up by the fiery orange / brown tones on this hide.

Lovely to the extreme, the white ceiling/walls here make this home office seem a lot bigger than it really is, and the white cowhide rug on the dark floor reflect tons of light.

Love the layering here. Natural fibers and a natural hide lighten up the dark walls. And fresh flowers always help!

Fun and fresh: this hot pink cowhide rug turn this sweet studio into a bold daring home office!

Working with such a small room, the crystal clear legs on the bench were a very wise decision, while the cowhide rug give the room a scale and make it look longer and larger than it really is.

Below you can see how the dark snorkel blue contrasts with the white walls making the room seem larger. And the perfect white spotted cowhide rug does the rest.

As a final detail, I want to add that you may have noticed on all these photos that the cowhides are set on an angle, instead of being parallel to the desk or walls.

This is the way to set your hide. Using it parallel to the walls will the room a more “stiff” look, so tilt it a bit, just like a pro! 

Do you have a home office? Would you soften the look with a hide?
