Infuse Your Home Office with Style for my Organizing Monday

infuse your style in your home office

We passed a lot on time in front of our computer.  Many of us do it at home. Today I wish to talk about the need to surround your home office with things you love. The goal towards a paperless society means that we need less and less office supplies. This fact frees up space for nice storage ideas and to integrate decor accessories. Make your home office a place where you want to be.

Even if your desk is on a hall or a corner of a room, it can look pretty. City dwellers often look for a desk that provides space saving. The top picture is the Graham Secretary Deck with the tall hutch used here as a bookcase. A desk with a fold-down front is perfect to hide away the paper. The three bottom drawers and two cabinets provide multi-purpose storage. If you do not need it as a desk later, it is good to know that the Graham desk with the hutch makes a practical bar station.

A desk hutch is a great way to save space and neatly display your office supplies and mobile gadgets. The Porter Smart Technology hutch adapts to your need. First, the hutch comes with a hanging dowel for organizing ribbons and other crafts. Behind the top drawer, you can access a five-outlet power strip. Or you could replace the hanging towel and the top drawer with three vertical partitions for added filing space. The idea is to customize your desk to your needs.

    I’m gearing up for a home addition that will include new office space and so am getting ready to share ideas with an architect and interior designer. Storage space is definitely a must-have for me and, since I’m now on a laptop more often than not, and the space will look out over my garden, in an ideal world the space will end up looking less like an office and serving more than that single purpose. I want to take full advantage of the room’s features and possibly make it a second social space for guests, during non-office hours, as well. Have been thinking about customized moroccan-inspired seating with storage bins built-in to the benches.

    Cheers for this blog post .. you’ve given me a lot to think about and convinced me that I’m on the right track in considering a multi-purpose room that is designed to feel like part of the home.

    Michelle: I want to see pictures, once you implemented your design. I love your Moroccan seating ideas. They have beautiful art and fabrics.

    This is a really useful post, Kim! I currently have a separate office (that also doubles as a guest room) but plan to ditch that arrangement and do something else with the room. I’ve been looking for a hutch that’s attractive enough to put in the living room.
