After whipping our spare room into guest-ready shape with only a few days to spare before the holidays, it became time to turn it into a space that I could use the rest of the year: my home office.
Here's a reminder of what it looked like during my pre-holiday decorating dash (previously, it was full of boxes):
Then, it was time to make it a comfortable, and functional, home office without making it too "office-y."
I didn't want my guests to feel like they were sleeping in a cold, corporate setting - but, I still wanted to be able to focus on my work on the many days I'm spending in there.
Obviously, it's still a work in progress.
The hunt is on for a comfier chair and some art to dress up the walls. Floating shelves will also be installed for some extra, open storage - leaving the closet free for suitcases and visitor's clothes. Add in some more task lighting, and I may just be ready to call the project done.
But, for now, I'm just pleased it's gone from a mess of storage to a usable workspace!
