Home Office Inspiration

Now that I’m working from home, I spend the majority of my days in my “home office” which is currently a vintage sewing desk in the guest bedroom. With a printer on the floor underneath it. And stacks of junk everywhere. I’ve taken over the floor, the bed, the entire room. So I’ve got to get organized. And as I prepare to head to Dallas for a shopping/bridesmaid extravaganza weekend, I’m pulling together some serious home office inspiration.

I need a green chair. I just decided.

This little office is actually the closest to my reality, since space is an issue and I’m typing this from a vintage desk. Maybe by next week I will have a fab home office to share with all of you!

    Great examples of offices. But I believe that the chair has to be the most functional piece of the office no matter if it is a home or professional one. We often forget how many hours we will spend in that chair and pick something looking great, but being really wrong from the health point of view.

    Considering the reality office…remember the cane chair with the round back we upholstered your apartment years ago? Still have it. Cane’s in great shape and could be painted and reupholstered again. And it’s comfortable. You up for a rehab project?

    Rosemary — love this. I have to send you a photo of my home office, which is lined in those old-school postcard strips. I lean funkier, I guess, but it inspires me when I write my travel posts.
