Is Your Dusty Study In Need of Some Sprucing?
A study is a man or woman’s personal room designed for academic work, reading, writing, or paperwork. Unlike an office, a study can be a place of leisure as well as work. There has been a rise in popularity with younger people turning spare rooms into studies. More and more adults are switching to online work, making study spaces more appealing and on-trend. When you think of a study, you probably imagine Mark Twain, dusty leather-bound books, oil lamps, and serious dark colors. What was once traditionally a room that belonged to the father of the house for the use of reading or business matters is now a space that anyone can enjoy and make their own. Thanks to Dark Academia, a style trend or aesthetic that is sweeping the country with a rebirth, or reboot rather, of that early 1900s English study vibe tossed with nostalgia for a simpler time and drizzled with a sense of longing for the arts, and classic Greek and Gothic influences, everyone wants a study.
Imagine a room filled with books ranging from poetry and philosophy to modern young adult and science fiction. A hat rack for coats, satchel bags, and berets. A lovely wooden desk with room for candles, a vintage collection of butterfly wings, and a tiny microscope. Everything centers around the idea of higher learning and a fondness for antique everything.
A modern study can be anything you like! Whether you prefer an old-fashioned study with an impressive library and a green banker’s lamp, or you want to mix things up with a modern space filled with light, Feng Shui, and minimalistic artwork- we have some tried and true styling tips to get you started on your study conversion so that it best reflects your unique self.
