Petite Home Offices

Small Space Inspiration

I made a New Year's resolution. Okay, I made more than one. But this one will hopefully get me organized enough to follow through with the others. I resolve to carve out a niche in my tiny abode to house a fully functioning, super hip, cheerful home office. Do you have the same resolution? Here are some inspiring photos of petite home offices that will hopefully get your New Year started off on a stylish note.

1: The deep green walls look sleekly sharp against the bright white furniture. I know we've seen this print for, like, ever, but I never seem to tire of it. This could work for me with the addition of drawers, maybe a slender white rolling metal file cabinet would do the trick.

2: Love the neon chair paired with the tailored upholstered seat. Of course an inspiration board would be fabulous, but I fear mine would make the space feel more cluttered. What's the trick to this? Any suggestions?

3: Yes, this does not seem like a very practical work space, but clear off a few plants, make room for a laptop, and voila! Plus, staring at this ikat chair everyday would be a dream.

4: If only I had a spare closet! This look could be modified to work in an armoire too. Efficient and lovely.

5: A sunny spot to start the day. This desk appears to be a built-in, but you could definitely achieve a similar look by painting a vintage desk. The monochromatic color scheme is a pretty way to blend the living room and office.
