Home office inspiration pictures??

sarahandbrayFebruary 19, 2012

Thanks in no small part to gardenweb, we were able to successfully renovate our kitchen a couple of years ago!

Now, we're on to an office adjoining the kitchen and living room.

Approx 11'X11' with our plan to do a basic U on the three walls, maximizing counter/work space.

I can visualize it, but my husband needs more proof (if it were up to him, we'd throw a few old, mismatched desks in there and call it a day!

Any great finished office pics of regular people or good websites for ideas? We kind of broke the bank on the kitchen and are just trying to have a neat, organized homework space for our three kids and bill-paying space (plus gadget charging area!) for us.

Any help is greatly appreciated!!

I'm linking a post from the gallery section of the gardenweb decorating site. Some of the pictures started in 2008 and some have been deleted, most look professionally decorated as well as "regular people" (like me too). There are tons of pictures so give it a bit of time to load. I'm sure you'll find some good ideas and hopefully more pics will be posted here for you. Our office needs to be redone so I'll be looking back here for more ideas too.

There's a Flicker pool for workspaces: http://www.flickr.com/groups/unclutterer/pool/ A word of warning--these are mostly from minimalist decorating types.

Apartment Therapy also has lots of pictures of workspaces. Go to their main site: http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/ and look in the menu on the left side of the page for "Rooms" and then choose "Workspace." Many, but not all, of the rooms shown on AT have a modern or techy slant.
