A Colorful Mac-Centric Home Office in Athens, Greece

Quite a few touches make this beautiful home office stand out from the lot. Maybe it's the nice use of colors, maybe it's the computers, or the thoughtful organization that went into putting this home office together, but all in all, there are quite a few good ideas here to make our own home offices look better.

It's hard to believe that this beautiful home office and bedroom belongs to a 17-year old student from Greece, but obviously, Vangelis has got great taste. A dash of color, here and there, with some computers and ingenuity round up this nice home office that anyone would appreciate.

Vangelis uses an A4 IKEA paper stand as a cooling solution for his MacBook Pro. Everyone knows that laptops can get quite hot, but this DIY solution is perfect in this nice and color-coordinated home office. His table lamp is an IKEA Tertial. Vangelis has an ingenious solution to managing his pens. Pens can easily get all over the place, and since he doesn't have much desk space, he uses a bathroom rack to suspend a few cups that hold his pens. Nice and tidy!

On his desk, he's also got an iMac. As such, his cable management solution is pretty simple. He tucked the cords behind his desk, making them all but disappear. It helps that his only other peripheral is an external hard drive. His other computer is an HTPC that's plugged into his HDTV, which is all neatly packed up on a wall. The other speakers are hidden behind the printer and the subwoofer.
