We spotted this office on Flickr and were immediately in love. The retro phone! That elegant lamp! The pops of black in the cream-colored space! Beautiful. We realized the space worked so well because it avoided one of the biggest decorating mistakes: It keeps flow moving slowly through the room with the furniture floating away from the walls. That rule is all great and dandy for living rooms and bedrooms, but in a home office it becomes more difficult to follow. We realized that this office, as beautiful as it is, is impractical, if not impossible...

Keeping everything on your desk wireless is a dream that isn't quite yet a reality for all of us. But with a few simple starts, you can try to make your office space, usually the harbor of work and stress, as wire-free and worry-free as possible.

Starting with a wireless router is the easiest step to take. It can be a pretty inexpensive option that will give you flexibility over where in a room you place your desk. Check out our post on the best wireless routers for a head start.

Wireless speakers are another great move if you're into your acoustics. A good speaker system can sometimes come with more wires than you know what to do with. If you want to make a worthwhile investment, this is the place (especially with the move to computer-based media rooms). Chack out this post for some great wireless speakers.

Another small change that can make a huge difference is to set yourself up with a wireless printer. We like the models from Kodak and Lexmark.

What changes have you made in your home office space to make the move to wireless? Are you free to move your desk around the room? Around the house? We want to know!
