A Home Office On My Mind

Well it's been a whirlwind few months for my professional life but I am happy to say that I have officially transitioned into a full time consultant! I will be able to spend more time decorating as well as continue designing products on a contract basis. During this transition period I spent a lot of time thinking about home offices and how I wanted to set mine up. Last year I carved out space in our house that I could call my own and it has worked great so far. But with the additional work I'll be doing at home (including sketching and hands on work) I decided to bring in more storage for supplies and rearrange the room a bit.

I generally feel lucky to have a home office in the digital era - I am trying to go as paperless as possible! For those items I do need to have on hand closed storage is the way to go keeping clutter at bay and workflow efficient.  I'll upload some pictures of the updated office but for now here are some pictures for inspiration!

 

This home office color is kept pretty neutral with strong black accents. The versatile desk desk allows seating on either side and a variety of built-in storage. Window seat keeps furniture needs simple and curtain warms up the room with subtle pattern.

Glossy office is serene with just white and silver. Lots of storage and floating desk allows a spot for visitors to pull up a chair.

This office is tucked away in a little corner. Built-in storage utilizes a small alcove in room and painted a soft green to coordinate with the wallpaper.

Great idea for an office turned guest room. Murphy beds tuck away when you don't need them but unfold to provide a full size bed.

If you have a shed or backyard space have you considered an outdoor office? I've seen so many great ideas for modular outdoor offices! Maybe I'll even do a separate post on these...
