My Home Office

After talking about desk spaces the other day I thought I’d share the before and after of my desk area at home {before I have to pack it all up & move out!} Simon {being a designer} doesn’t just have a laptop he has a big desktop computer to find a home for too. With only a two bed house I didn’t want to forgo a second bedroom so I decided to turn the grotty understairs area into a mini office/store cupboard for all of my laundry items and craft room over flow! {I say I, I drew up the plans and Simon got handy with some MDF and the jigsaw} Pattern and papers are always my inspiration behind a scheme so I decided to deck out the desk area with lots of gorgeous paper samples.

    How lovely and inspired!

    Nice to see that a lot can be packed into a little space.

One Trackback/Pingback

  1. […] Under-the-stairs studies always look cute and compact, but if you don’t even have stairs, or a spare room, the sofa can easily end up being your work spot. If you really need an allocated desk, though, look out for dinky console tables or try a drop-down tabletop that you can stow away when not in use. […]
