A Hard Days Work

So many great ideas here. The numbered photo boxes. The whiteboard and baskets. A mirror not only for primping but also to make the space appear larger. A collection of white cups that can hold pencils, pens, paintbrushes, crayons, and whatever else you need to keep together. I really like the paper roll on the desktop. This would be a great idea for wrapping paper as well. You could just use a curtain rod and attach it right to the desk.

This is an old photo (look at that computer!) but I still like this cozy home office. I remember seeing this on a decorating show years ago so a real person actually does live here. I really like that slipcovered chair with the star.

Clean, crisp, and stylish. Love the numbers print, the silhouette picture, and the silver chairs and lamps.

Lots of vintage charm here.

A charming "standard" office with personal and vintage touches.

Lots of great flea market finds in this little office space. Check out the baby box spring used for a memo board. Or make your own tool carousel using vintage tin cans and cheese graters. Mini cake pans are great for keeping things organized. If you don't have room for a desk, how about cutting an old table in half, chopping off the legs, and attaching it to a wall.

A vintage panel door makes an interesting chalkboard.

I'm in love with this one. So bright and spacious. Dark floors, white trim, pale blue walls and I love the metal furnishings. I think this is a Pottery Barn room but we all know how to get around that, right?
