With all the talk of home offices and getting organized we've been searching for some inspiration for our own home office (which at best will be a nook in either the living room or bedroom but a big step up from using the main dining room table and having to pack up every night). We've rounded up inspiring images as well as some practical examples to get a style tray together for our very own home office:
Swiss Miss's envy inducing bedroom office
We would condense this one into the shelves with the desk underneath.

We like how this one puts shelves right over a frosted window, creating storage in an unlikely place.
West Elm's Jay Hutch Desk is nice and compact
If we could we'd love to combine the home office with the living room entertainment system, replacing a flat screen with a projector.

Of course most of these offices are out of reach for us, but some of the stacked or corner versions are great jumping off points. And what we take away from the larger offices is: put in enough storage in order to have a cleaned off workspace, simple floating shelves with a couple of objects look interesting but not too cluttered and that we love how warm the wood walls are. We can probably make a version of that using cork instead of wood. Either way, having a permanent place to store what we're working on will be a big improvement on our up-until-now nomadic work life.
