Writing Spaces: Turquoise Closet Office

Turquoise Closet Office

Turning a full closet into a small office space is a common enough practice in many homes. This example from Country Living allows a writer to find a pocket niche to spread out their work and set up shop. I love the color scheme of this one. Note that the rear wall has wall paper to brighten up the rear of the closet. A small tin chandelier hangs from the ceiling to add a touch of elegance. The two doors are used for storage. A pegboard is mounted on one side and a corkboard on the other. The desk is a laminated board set on two rolling file cabinets. It goes to show that the use of a color wheel and a sense of style can go a long way in creating a unique office space.

Writing Space: Modern Chrome Home Office

Modern Chrome Home Office

There is something that calls to me when it comes to iron work and leather. I love the combination. My current desk is iron, glass tops and softened with espresso wood and a leather chair. This office reminds me a bit of my own with its modern elements, punched with accents of chrome from the lamp and knickknacks. I also like that it has a second desk area set up off to the side. If you have a child that needs to do homework or is being homeschooled, this would be an ideal set up for you as the parent and teacher to supervise their work. The ottoman in front of the main desk is great for either a seat for a client or guest or to be used to spread out index cards or notebooks on.
