8 easy workspaces.

i love having a home office. it’s nice to have a spot where i can hang inspirational photos, keep my endless stacks of decor and design magazines, and know that when i’m in this space i’m here to work and get things done! i like all of these spaces because i think they’re fairly simple to DIY and affordable to achieve. ikea desks dressed up with a pretty vintage chair, or a makeshift desk set on two sawhorses — easy and cost efficient. i love the long work table under the windows above because it’s something you could build very easily and because it’s not just a desk for your laptop, it’s an accessible worktable too for spreading out larger projects, or perhaps even a sewing machine. here’s a few more ideas i like.

    I like simplicity, so I adore fresh modern and functional white Scandinavian desk (last photo).
    I like to have an organized home office . A place for everything and everything in its place!

    If you’re up for it, I’d love to see these ideas but with the additional constraints of a monitor and a keyboard tray (or even tougher, a 3rd item: a fax/printer). I feel like with a laptop, anywhere can be a desk, but those two additional items mean much more commitment (and potential ugliness) :) I might have to adapt the ikea armoire / closet idea above…

    I’d love a light, white and airy workspace. Sadly as I work in a hospital the opposite is usually the case, my office is like a closet!

    I have a give away ending today for some pretty peg magnets which would brighten up an office space though…http://tenantchic.blogspot.co.uk/2014/04/first-giveaway.html

    I love the idea of cork trivets as mini cork boards. Thanks for the inspiration!

    I love these and in particular #6. I like that you can close the door and separate it from the rest of your house. It’s all white, quite minimal and very light. I’d be one very happy blogger with an office like this one ;-)

    Any idea where we can pick up some super chic office chairs? We’re in LA :)

  9. That last office is my favorite – the wood vintage file cabinets are made of have a really nice warm tone that livens the room, along with that plant in the window!

  10. I’ll take any of these, please and thank you!
