34 Inspiring & Organised Home Office Ideas - The Organised Housewife

Multi-purpose home office

Great home offices can double as guest bedrooms, too

Room Inspiration: Shared Office & Guest Rooms

Of all the rooms in my house the “second bedroom” has been the hardest to resolve. Yes, I’m grateful for the extra space, but rather than be efficient with it, the room has mostly become an oversized storage closet — all the miscellaneous stuff gets thrown in there, including a desk, old couch, drying rack, books, etc. I’d really love for it to be a true combination home office and guest bedroom. But is it even possible?

Office Wall Update

In case you hadn't heard, I'm snowed in. Georgia received a ton of snow/ice earlier in the week and we are taking our sweet time digging our way out.

I used up the only two gallons of paint I had left in the house (more on that later!). I stalked visited…

Custom floating bookshelves makes this bedroom an space-savvy home office

Ideas for small spaces: Custom bookshelves + dark walls: 'Iron Mountain' by Benjamin Moore

Blogged about at www.roomlust.blogspot.com. Architect Jeffery Povero maximized space in his 860-square-foot New York apartment with architectural custom shelving, which provides neatly efficient storage. He also used opposing paint colors to make the space seem larger: Benjamin Moore’s Iron Mountain (on walls) and white (in recesses) help the dark color dematerialize at the edges.
