Lifestyle blogger Megan of StyleGirlfriend was in desperate need of a functional workspace (and ahem…more back support) in her small Brooklyn apartment, so she teamed up with the designers at Homepolish who used some clever tricks to give her a stylish, multi-purpose space.

Yes, please! Designer Shelly Lynch-Sparks used a dramatic dark wall to break up the boxy room, and turn the desk (from Recycled Brooklyn) into a statement, rather than an afterthought. Those sexy hairpin legs also help keep things visually light.

Smart tip: a very non-officey desk chair (from West Elm) lets Megan easily flip it around to turn her room back into a living area after hours.

Homepolish calls Megan’s new space, “Pretty, practical and productivity-inducing,” and we’d have to agree.
