apartment desk home office ideas

Our home office in a loft

Oh hello. I have been working on creating a little corner of the apartment for David and I to get our life together. Our apartment is very long and narrow, and full of windows and light so I didn’t want to waste the opportunity of having an inspiring workspace in our home. We already have a high top counter where we eat, and honestly we both scarf down food in 5 minutes or less, and rarely throw “dinner parties”. So I didn’t see the benefit of  putting a kitchen table in our living room.  Thus, the idea to turn this corner into a home office was born.

I wanted two separate work spaces. “My” space, where the desktop would go. I do most of my messy work at my vanity, so I knew I just needed a small CLEAN desk where I could focus on editing, and email etc.

And then David’s space. He is currently in school and thus has papers, books, and pencils galore. I knew I wanted a long desk where he could sprawl out to work, but then deep drawers so that I was able to hide all of his junk.

The two areas are still a work in progress, but I’m proud of where I’m at so far. I think I want to get a bench or ottoman that will go next to my desk (on the left under the window), so that I have an extra storage space, as well as a ledge to occasionally smoke out of… and I think I just need something to close off the space. I also want to install shelves on the only open wall (behind the desktop) to add depth. I will most likely put some plants, and possible a mini bookshelf. But time will tell.
