Get The Look: 6 high street pieces inspired by Bronagh's warm and colourful home office

Bronagh says the space feels like a ‘big hug’. Here’s how to steal her style.

Each week, we step inside a reader’s home, and indulge in some copycat behaviour, creating a shopping list inspired by their interior style.

This week, Bronagh Fleming’s (@foxhollowstyle) home office was our inspiration.

“My work is really diverse, so my space has to be diverse too,” says Bronagh. “My desk might be covered in samples and mood boards, or cleared so I can focus on written content. Often it’s my study space for my evening course.”

“What was important to me was a space that would be comfortable and that had plenty of storage. So I created a cosy den vibe in my office, with rich depth of colour on the walls, natural wood storage and hints of gold for an opulent look. It’s a space that feels like a big hug to me.”

Bronagh loves paying a visit to antique auctions and second-hand shops for hidden gems, but also picked up pieces for her home office in Penneys, Sostrene Grene and ASOS. Below are six high-street items that’ll help you get the look in your own home…
