Yesterday, we marveled at Dora's cozy office nook
, a great example of simplicity at its best. So here's an idea for those of you who have the extra closet space (coughIwishcough): convert it into a quaint office area. The end result of this sunshine-yellow bedroom and office combo doesn't seem cluttered or claustrophobic, probably due to the light color scheme and organized shelves...
By removing the closet doors and replacing them with gauzy drapes and painting the inside of the closet an off-white, the office area doesn't seem dark and shadowy--something we'd be worried about if we ever tried this. When the curtains are closed to hide the office, it also gives the bedroom a softer, more romantic look.
