Tidy and organized: Home offices and workspaces to motivate you

I'm working in a little impromptu "office" while I'm here in Spain, which consists of a small desk - about 3ft wide by 1.5ft deep, and two small drawers. The wall is sort of a popcorn texture and painted a pinkish tan. It's not really inspiring. But, it is temporary - and there is an ancient cathedral to wonder at through my window. Until I have the space and means to create the office of my dreams, it sure is fun to collect inspiration...

*swoon* white, mid-century modern, a whole bookcase of organization potential! This space has so many of my favorite elements!

The real home office. I love this desk. It's great for anyone who needs a lot of surface area - and the drawers are small - which is great for organizing pencils, brushes, etc.

You can create a beautiful office space in an open floor plan living situation or in the corner of another room. This one is in one end of a living room. The tiled floor creates a visual barrier, separating the office into a separate space. And look at the cubbies and matching baskets!

This is a really cute pinboard for a gardener, but you can take the same ideas - file folder hanger, little baskets - and clips for organizing your projects...

Two file cabinets and a large plank make a substantial desk - an easy DIY that doesn't cost a lot.


I love little nook offices. I work from home full time so it wouldn't really work for me, but it's a great solution for home offices where you just need to deal with correspondences, bills, etc.

Isn't this workspace soooo pretty and cute? The charming lamp, the little wood radio, the artsy trash bin...and the wallpaper is to die for. (the wallpaper is called Harlequin Passion and from wallpapersonline.com.au)

Do you have a home office? Is it a dedicated room? Shared with another room? In a nook or closet, etc.?

Great pictures as always! Question - I noticed you posted a picture from someone's Pinterest...do you have your own Pinterest set up? I'm still trying to figure out how all of it works but would love to hear what you think about it!

The first image looks perfect as an inspiration for your home office. The color combination of black and white fits very well, as it shows a fun-loving yet, a professional feel in it. Another thing is the simplicity of furniture placement that makes it easier for you to clean the place!

@Corie - Agreed!

Where would I find a plank for an office desk? Would I get the materials and paint it myself? How would I get that high shine on for a modern looking desk-top? Thanks
