Dreaming of a Home Office

May 10, 2011

Yesterday afternoon, Lily and I started sorting through our shop inventory for The Old School Market.  Our inventory is split between both of our homes and for the most part this works out just fine.  It would certainly be a dream come true if we could have it all organized and displayed in one shared workspace…I’m sure you’ve heard us mention this before.  But for now, we’ll have to work with what we have.

I’ve been struggling to find the perfect spot in my home for my office.  I think I’ve moved my desk about three times in the last year.  And that’s not an easy task because it’s a fairly large, solid oak teacher’s desk.  I’ve tried keeping it right front and centre  so that I could check in on things every time I passed by.  I’ve tried tucking it a little out of the way so I could get a little more peace and quiet.  I then begged my husband and my brother to haul it into the basement so I could gain some more space.  But it’s still not working for me.  Do you have any tips?  How have you made your home office space work for you?

I think I need a real office.  You know, one with a door.

A girl can dream, right?

All those pictures are wonderful…I like the idea of it being near the hub, sometimes we can only grab 5 minutes. So the closer to the action the better!

Love all these…so cozy but chic and so organized, a place for everything. I am alwasy so impressed how so much can be fit into even the smallest of spaces. My sister in law just made a home office literally out of a walk in closet but let me tell you she has put so much in there, and everything has a place and its amazing, one entire wall from floor to ceiling is a bulletin board (not bragging but it was my idea and she loves it) its a really neat space) love home offices and can’t wait to have my own!

My fav is the last one from Elle Decor! I love vintage wooden furnitures, and a neat space {but not too neat either}. I think that work space could be the one of a man as well…
Lovely inspiration boards from Holly, Nina and Apart. Therapy too!

Beautiful work spaces!
