Designer Hilary Ramsay outlines how to design an elegant home office. Discover her formula for creating an ultra-feminine, pink space that feels sleek rather than sweet.

Hilary used a neutral color palette as a backdrop, and brought in pink, rose and mauve in the decor. When choosing furniture, she kept things consistent with circular motifs, found in the base of the desk, the pendant and the faceted front of the console table. Luxurious linen and velvet fabrics add interest, as does textured wallpaper behind the built-in credenza. A mix of metals offer a touch of glam, from the drapery hardware and coffee table to the accessories.
