Creating a stylish office is always a difficult task but generally the more room you have, the easier it gets. Tiny-spacers are often grappling with a daunting challenge of not only developing a style that works with them, but actually fits in their small space. We went into our Flickr archive and found some great user-submitted examples of desks/offices that offer little real estate but a lot of style.

1. Leo Capello's Home Office
We love Leo's usage of color in this office space. The grey walls make his wallpaper and lamp really pop. Although the desk isn't big, Leo managed to tuck away an external hard drive, headphones, cell phone, a few books, and of course the lamp with pens and pencils on top. We like this humble set up because it doesn't feel ostentatious. Everyday, functional objects can work well as decorative elements if you don't have space for anything else.

2. Sébastien Robert's Workspace
Nice and minimal is the way to go when you don't have much space to work with. Sébastien embraced his lack of space by creating a floating desk and creating a near monochromatic color scheme which makes the single colored poster stand out even more.

3. Hidden Office Space
Jen B's sister created this clever condo-sized home office which can be packed up and put away when not in use. The calming colors of pale blue, green, and cream make the office an ideal spot to work, despite the cramped quarters (which actually feel quite light and open).

4. A Cheerful Office with Height
How can you beat this color combination if you're looking for something to cheer you up in the morning when you check your email? White can be so powerful when used against a single, bright color. If you've painted a bold color on your wall and don't know how to decorate around it, you can always revert back to white and the neutrals for a guaranteed way of creating a bit of elegance and style. We especially like the color coordinated MacBook. Never upgrade to a Pro!
