In a small space there's not always a lot of room to bring in a regular sized desk; spreading out papers and magazines is a luxury normally reserved for the dining table. But what we hadn't thought of was using a long, narrow desk. Sara's home office has a nice narrow desk with some colorful walls and prints, and for a refreshing change, black expedit shelves.
Working on a laptop we don't need a deep desk to accommodate a monitor. So looking at Sara's home office we're inspired: a long narrow desk could meet our needs without jutting into the room and taking up a lot of space. We also love that from the looks of things Sara was able to fit a filing cabinet underneath her desktop (which she says is from Ikea and looks to us like the Malm occasional table) to add some storage to help keep paperwork clutter to a minimum.
We love the deep aqua color of her walls along with prints from strawberry luna that add some orange and blue to the mix and it's a nice change to see a black expedit shelf instead of the classic white. It's also nice to see shelves that aren't overflowing with things (like our own shelves) with room for plants, tins, books and...space.
