I shared a little bit about my office a few months back, but now that it feels officially finished, I felt compelled to share the final product, because I love it so much and it makes me so happy to step into and work every day! (Also, because I wanted to answer your many questions via Instagram about sourcing for my items in one easy place.)
When we looked at our house during a showing, this room was sort of an outcast. It held the previous owner’s random belongings – a child’s potty, a giant beer keg, random toys, etc. It wasn’t much to look at and felt awkward with the floor plan in terms of usability. The house already has a full dining room, so it didn’t really need another place to eat. Our realtor suggested it as an office, and immediately we were like, YES! Best idea!
It has a skylight that offers lots of natural light, and there are two entrances (neither with doors) one from the kitchen and one toward the back family room. It’s nice that while I work from home during my kids’ early years, I can be accessible to them if I need to work while still feeling like I have a place of my own.
We furnished the office mostly with IKEA (surprise, surprise). Even though it’s a relatively small space, I feel really pleased with how well we were able to utilize space through choices like a corner desk and floor to ceiling storage on one side. I think my favorite part is the most recent addition of this peg board. I’d seen a million different organizational peg boards on Pinterest, and it just made sense in a space so small to utilize the wall for storage instead of more furniture on the ground. It helps my packaging and organizational flow so much to have things right in front of my face!
