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!

    Absolutely. This is my dream office :) I love the 3rd pic down, it looks so relaxing and exactly the kind of space that would make me feel super productive. If you like you can check out my guide to starting a home office for girl bosses :)

    Thanks for the inspiration!
