Creative Spaces

8.25.2009

Now that I have been working from home out of our third bedroom/home office/junk room--- I've been inspired to make some changes. I feel like this is the room in our house that becomes a home to those certain things that don't have a real home. It's the catch all room. It houses my craft stuff, sewing things, our computer, my husband's fishing/hunting gear. It's in need of a makeover. So.... I think that Marianne and I may make a run to ATL tomorrow and head to Ikea. What better place to find inexpensive home office storage? Oh, and I just went and read Marianne's blog. It made me laugh. We are obviously on the same page when it comes to having home offices on the brain. See her posts from yesterday and today!

There are so many great 'creative spaces' out there... here are some that I find inspiring.

These are all so inspiring! I really like the second one by Heather Baily. It's so feminine, and pretty.

I'm jealous you have a space like that to makeover- I would LOVE an office/craft/catchall space. Have fun at Ikea with Marianne!

I love these! Why is it so fun to decorate offices? I have a home office/catch all room too!

I actually might get a paying job if i could work in one of those offices! Hey, as long as you're going to Ikea, pick me up something cool, pretty please!!

The oversized idea boards are a must have, in my book!

Susie (So Blessed) said...

...and after you finish your office workspace, you can come re-organize mine! I'll even pay you!

Love you,
Mom

How I would love to have my own space... I am not choosy I would take any one of these, ha!

Jennifer said...

these are some good ones that I haven't seen!

wish I could go to ATL with ya'll! I could use an Ikea run (and a weekday away from my desk ...) myself.

Mimi said...

Love all of the ideas. Can't beleive you're going to IKEA without me (their biggest fan)!
Have fun!

Erin said...

So funny because I was just at Ikea last night browsing around all the office spaces! I need to find a new desk chair.

I love that gigantic bulletin board above all the file cabinets!

Such different styles, but all of them are fabulous. Love the whole wall used as a message area. I'm in the process of making over my own office/guest room. It's a lot of fun starting a room from scratch.

urbansardines said...

I love that first space! The chair is gorgeous! I also love that giant inspiration board (looks like the whole wall!). Love it!

Hi
Is it too late to comment on this post?
You mentioned that your spare room as your home for things that don't have a home. When you make over that room for your home-office, what are you going to do with all the stuff? Do you have another storage area. I wish we had a basement for those things. I could certainly find a better use for our spare room then a place for things that don't have a home.
