Home Office Changes

Tuesday, January 15th, 2013

Hello!  Today I thought I’d share some changes I made to my office earlier this month.  I wanted to add some dark navy to the office and some raspberry pink too (I love that combo) so here’s a peek at some new window panels and a new rug I added.   The rug and panels that I bought and made last summer got moved to other spaces.  I replaced the rug with a navy and white trellis rug that I scored for 75% off on a Cyber Monday sale in December.

The X-leg desk I bought marked down to $175 last year from a local furniture shop, but I found out you can also buy it here.   The desk chair is from Staples, and the white color is only for sale in stores but I saw it there last week so I know it’s still available.  The new window panels are one of my patterns I designed, it’s an edgy grid geometric print in navy and raspberry pink – it will be available in a few colorways soon.

Small Space Solutions: Home Offices

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

One of the comments I received last week was to write about ideas for small space living, so today let’s talk about work spaces and home offices. So much of what we do now is online compared to 20 or even 10 years ago, it seems having a little place to set your laptop or store your desktop is an absolute must in any home.

Absent the luxury of an actual room to turn into a home office, there are many other ways you can pull up a little horizontal space to catch up on your email, do your online banking, or better yet, blog!  So where do you squeeze in a space for a home office where there is none?  Here are ten ideas.

1.  Contained Office.   A tall computer hutch is a great way to use vertical space to pack all things office into one piece of furniture.  Consider customizing one you already have with bulletin boards and a pull out desk (that’s what we plan to do with our family room’s armoire – build a family computer station where kids can be supervised and do homework too.)

Stylish secretary cabinets are also useful for a quick pull down desktop.

The best part about these furniture solutions is the benefit of closing it up out of sight when you’re done working, for when guests come over, or to simply to hide it away at day’s end.
