I often find myself paying bills at the kitchen table and writing emails while I sit on the sofa. And even though I feel organized in general, my papers and important documents are in different places all over the house. I realized I needed a dedicated space, one with a desk, a proper filing system, and storage bins. I searched around the internet (while sitting on my sofa!) for some inspiration and then spent my time looking around for tools to help me create an organized and calming space!
Nancy Duffey, of Scout for the Home, designed this gorgeous office for the 2011 Symphony Show House. Notice the open window (in addition to entry point from the hall) so you can monitor the going-ons in the kitchen.
This modern space is an example of how easy it is to carve out a small office area in your living room. The modern, clean lines keep the office from becoming a distraction. And the gallery wall helps designate the space.
Setting up your office in a closet is the perfect way to have a dedicated office space without using a whole room. It is also great to be able to close the doors when not in use. Out of sight, out of mind!
