Intrigued I looked up some images to see what regular folks have been putting together and I love these multi-tasking stations right in the heart of the home:Megan and Sarah's Orange Nook is actually quite spacious and I love the use of thrift store furniture, bright colors and textures from books and plants. Laura Hiartrich is mid century utilitarian style with an eames chair and simple lines. It's a small desk just at the end of the counter, out of the way but not shoved into obscurity. I wonder how often the desk in the kitchen ends up getting everyone's stuff all over it. Built In, drool. With ample shelving, bulletin board backsplash and out of the way enough to not be in the cook's way. From moobug.
If given the chance would you use the kitchen eating nook for work? Do you already? At the least I'm picturing a little parsons desk or something like this to stick into a tiny corner (to call my own). Even a tiny corner would do.
