How To Thursday: Create an office nook

Guess what day it is? "How To Thursday"! Hope you find these tips helpful

When I first started Jace Interiors I did not have an office just a small corner in my bedroom that I tried to create an "office" out of. Thankfully now I have a weee bit larger space outside the bedroom! With a little creativity any nook can become a work space. A few things to remember:

*Have a place for everything, you can see by the photos below many boxes are
used to keep items tidy.
*Use your height: shelves are a great way to get things off the floor like printers and files.
*A curtain can soften any space especially a closet that is turned into an office.
*Install bright enough lighting that you can easily work and it will make any nook feel larger.
*Maximize your space with a smaller chair but make sure you have plenty of workspace.

We don't all have an extra room to spread out in so here are a few small space ideas to make the most of what you do have!














note the sweet pom pom trim on the shelves!! Sweet

I love the third one from the bottom with the blue chair. Is that in a closet?

I love that Davis chair, in white, with the roll back top! We used it in a marketing firm my old firm designed. Everything else was super, super cheap, but the chairs made it all look high end. I want one. My husband wants an Aeron:(

thanks Christine, you are so sweet! Annelise, yes I believe that is a double closet converted into an office. I love the blue chair! Stephanie, I am going to send you an email as I have a client who wants to sell her Aeron AND might have a lead on a Davis chair too : )

i love these nook offices. The first one with all the blue is to die for!
I wish I had an extra closet where I could fit one! Unfortunately, living in an old Victorian, closet space is even more limited than office space!

Since you are a designer, I hope you will share your own office space, too!
