How's this for a challenge? Meg and her husband Will both run two separate businesses (their indie record label and Meg's fashion design company, Enderby) all from their home...not to mention needing a place to store equipment for Meg's web show, Decor It Yourself, and Will's band, Olde Ghost. Faced with this dilemma, they decided to revamp their home office with the goal of having the space "well-organized, multi-faceted, inspiring, and have a good energy flow."
Their record collection is stored in the ever-popular Expedit bookcase; and on the opposite wall, all the materials and suppled for Enderby is stored on wall-mounted floating shelves. The office originally had a computer desk in the corner facing the wall...
...but after replacing their computer desk with a vintage L-shaped one they found on Craigslist ($100!), they moved their work area to face the windows, offering a nice view during the workday. An added bonus? The L-shape configuration of their new desk allows them to keep both the computer and the sewing machine out.
