Hi Guys! I’m super excited to have a guest post today from Becky over at Houzz. If you don’t know it, you should check it out — especially if you’re in the midst of restyling your home in any way. I asked the good folks at Houzz if they had any inspiration for a functional but super-chic home office, and they came back with some major goodness.  Check it out.  xoxo

Hello everyone! My name is Becky and I’m a contributor at Houzz, a home design site focused on helping design professionals and homeowners manage the remodeling and decorating process. Thanks so much to Chelsea for having me!

In a small home, a home office area can mean a corner of your bedroom, a nook off the kitchen or even a tight closet. When your workspace is so integrated into the rest of your home, it’s important to plan the space efficiently and also maintain a level of style. Here are three office spaces that can exist as a part of other rooms without looking like a pile of messy stress.

This is the kind of home office that fits into a glamorous bedroom. If you replace the laptop with a table mirror, it instantly transforms into a dressing table fit for a fashion-forward diva.

Notes to take from this home office:

  • Use a desk with a light profile.
  • Keeping most of the lines rectilinear provides a uniform look that’s pleasing to the eye.
  • Using clear glass or lucite lamp bases keeps the desk from looking cluttered.

This office has lots of white, which makes the carefully edited colorful patterns stand out.

Notes to take from this home office:

  • The geometric accent wall is a strong backdrop and everything else needs to bow down to it.
  • Chic and simple white cabinets provide scads of storage space for messy paper clutter, files, supplies and equipment.
  • Symmetry provided by the two table lamps and magazine files adds a pleasing balance to the space.

Office storage doesn’t need to consist of old metal file cabinets.

Notes to take from this home office:

  • Your style does not need to be all business; use a Beverly Hills dream closet for inspiration if that’s what floats your boat.
  • You can outfit all sorts of storage pieces to suit your office. Scanners, printers, papers and files are all hidden in this chic, non-officey cabinet.

Thanks so much to Chelsea for giving me this topic; to be honest I’m writing from my dining room table as my home office is in a scary state right now. Writing this has inspired me to go attack it and make it a more inspiring space!
