When I look for home office inspirational photos, I am usually drawn to more sedate offerings. Yet, this confetti hued garage office drew me in. The base furniture and walls are all white, providing a smooth background. The accent pieces all provide pops of color to liven the cool space up. I especially love the little yellow rolling drawers under the desk. I’ve often considered purchasing one of these metal drawer units for my own office since it would provide plenty of space for my fountain pen collection and specialty papers and notebooks. Which would be your favorite accessory?

This office space has a more traditional feel with the dark wood furniture, neutral rug and baskets hanging on the wall to give a casual storage space. I love the hutches on the desks that provide storage space for paper. I’m still a pen and ink sort of gal and providing spaces to keep letter writing paper on hand is still part of my personal office space today. I hope you find this office as inspiring as I do.
I always love to see home offices that utilize the “wasted space” under stairs. Sometimes these spaces are cramped as the homeowner attempts to fit everything under the staircase. In this home office, the space is office storage combined with a light and airy office space directly beside it, tucked into a corner. I love the color combination of white desk and cabinets with brushed nickle fixtures and the lovely sage green chair that picks up the color from the various plants on the desk. A few touches of dark hardwood and rattan adds to the botanical feel. The navy hue architecture prints on the wall give a slight masculine touch.
Sometimes it is great to have a secondary workspace in your living room for working on projects. Brad Ford has this open leg double desk in his, near his playful Planet of the Apes artwork. This inspiring workspace is part of a home tour for House and Home and is photographed by Eric Striffler. I hope you’ll stop by and see more of Brad’s apartment.
I have a fondness for antiques, especially those of the Victorian era. This old secretary desk, painted in the shabby chic style appeals to that sensibility. I like the way that the old fashioned desk that was designed for analog writing with paper notebooks and pens is being put to modern use with the apple laptop. It is a place that I would feel comfortable composing letters or working on a chapter. How about you?
