the un-office home office.

it’s not unreasonable to crave a bit of space for one’s self. a little nook to take care of paperwork, sort the bills that come in, a sweet spot to stash your favorite magazines and books, and perhaps start your very own inspiration board. a home office of sorts, but not one that has to scream ‘office!’. i like the idea of an un-office home office — perhaps a nice desk or hutch strategically spaced in your existing environment that doesn’t have to mean converting an entire room to a home office. or, if you are fortunate enough to have a spare room to use as an office, maybe it’s got other functions, too — a guest room / home office, or keep it open and airy, creating a very minimalist office feeling with space to spread out a yoga mat or an art project when the mood strikes.

  1. I think my office space fits in this category, too. It’s a desk I designed 15 years ago in a corner of my living room… These images definitely made me feel better about my little corner. ;)

  2. Does anyone know where that Black and white polka dot lantern-style lamp is from? I’ve seen it in a few design shoots now but can’t figure out where to get it! Love.

    • Hi Colleen, I’m not sure, but these are the interior designs who designed the office, and I see they have a webshop coming, so maybe check in with them. Good luck!
