Cubic Shelves Gives Graphic Designer Office New Life

The first thing that you notice about this home office is that most of the shelving is similar and stands out, which is important when you're redesigning your own home office. We like how the shelving is prevalent and distinctive in white. Also, the lounge area nearby is perfect to take a load off during busy days at home.

Hellogeri is a graphic designer from St-John's, Canada. She recently renovated her home office and this is what she's done with it. Although it's not completely finished, we like where this is going. It's nicely lit and got wooden floors, which are highlighted by the white furniture and nice decor.

Her computing needs are taken care of an iMac, a 13" MacBook Pro, and a Wacom Intuous 4 tablet. She's got an Apple keyboard as well as an iPad on her desk. She uses an IKEA Alex drawer unit to store some larger-sized paper that would otherwise clutter her work area. Her bookshelves are part of IKEA Expedit's line. There is one hidden on the side of her desk to store magazines and books.

There is another Expedit bookshelf that serves as a station for her Stanton turntable and her records. On the wall, you'll find art and a Karlsson clock. Her guitar sits on a corner on a stand. She's unsure of her curtains and plans on replacing them with shorter wooden blinds.

In the lounge area, she's got a fake Barcelona chair that she found at Costco, a chrome lamp that she found at Winner's, and more Expedit bookshelves arranged in a 4×4 pattern. The bottom of the shelves are used for storing boxes, which can be used to hold papers and odds and ends.

The warmth of the decor is offset by the neutral gray of the paint and the white of the furniture. All of her furniture is set to match, which is a nice touch overall. This office looks like the perfect place to take out a book and do some research, while still being able to getting stuff done from her workstation. It's fairly cozy, which is important in a home office setup. You don't want it to feel too spartan and minimal.
