Sliding Doors: What Happens When an Office Meets…

Are you familiar with the movie, Sliding Doors? It's an older Gwyneth Paltrow flick back in the day when she was dating Ben Affleck — what did we call them? Beneth? The premise of the movie was two parallel lives — one life behind down door 1 (catching a train), another behind door 2 (missing this train). Two wholly different outcomes hinged on one small, seemingly insignificant event.

Well, for some reason that movie came to mind when I came across these clever ways people have merged an office into various rooms of their home. What would happen if an office met a laundry room? Or a bedroom? Would they be happy? Could they make it work?

These workspace juxtapositions may not be as unexpected as an Indian in a Cupboard, but I do find them amusing nonetheless. Which one is your favorite?
