Since Pinterest came along, I know many of us have gotten a bit more creative in thinking outside the box of how to change certain aspects of our homes and such…it definitely helped me spark that idea to convert an upstairs alcove/hall into a small office nook and I am loving how it is coming together.
This is how it currently looks-to keep it simple and neutral, we wanted a built-in system that could serve a multitude of purposes, but mostly could be somewhere I could work from home that’s close to Caroline’s nursery, and a act as a spot for organization, creative projects, and such.
With that, I have been scouring my favorite site for ideas and such to bring in fun pops of color, a patterned chair, etc. and I cannot wait to finish it up and make it “my own”.
This is where I need help and advice from you!! I need any and all ideas that pop in your mind when you see this blank canvas…it seems like I’ve got a mental block for exactly what I want out of this space, so any recommendations you can send my way would be much appreciated. Something has to keep me busy and preoccupied ;).
I love it! I seriously need a space like that. Space is super limited here, so it'll be a while.
A patterned chair would look great there!!! I know whatever you choose it will be beautiful 🙂
Love the your inspiration pictures! They are all so pretty and great organization!
I agree – a patterned chair would add a LOT to the space oh and maybe a colored lamp or vase =)
I can't wait to see how it turns out =)
I love how it looks already – built ins are a necessity!
This is a great spot!! Love that you took advantage of free space in your home, without having to sacrifice a whole room. I love the third photo down…you could add a fun accent color too!
Start with an awesome, patterned or bright colored chair! That would be my route 😉
Pick one bright colored item and decorate around it! I know you'll come up with something gorgeous!
Such a cute desk! Jealous of all that space :). There's this blog that always has adorable ideas and I know she has an in-home office that I remember seeing a while ago that was AMAZING. Here's her blog: http://honeywerehome.blogspot.com/
I love this! I am crazy about cornering furniture and this looks awesome! Pinterest gives me great ideas too…very addictive. Way to go Natasha 🙂
Way to efficiently use that space for a desk nook! I love it!
A brightly colored chair, for sure with pops of an accent color–perhaps in desk accessories? The space looks great and I can't wait to see the final product!
It looks great – did you have someone custom build it on-site? Love it!
And I agree with many of the other ladies – find one piece you LOVE and then decorate around that. I've been careful lately to make sure everything coordinates, but isn't TOO matchy / matchy.
There are great storage boxes at Ikea that come in white, kelly green, orange and a few other colors I think. I used them in Jackson's nursery and in my home office and old work office. They add some color and hide clutter!
I love that last picture with the bright pop of color! Seriously what did we do before Pintrest?!
These are all so adorable! I love the idea of having a little office space!
so smart! i like the last picture with the bright pops of green the best!
That piece is great to work with. I can't wait to see what you come up with!
