office plans

I have eluded to the fact that I’ve got an office re-do coming up soon,which is needed to suit both Matt and my working habits to the fullest.  It’s certainly necessary (seeing as how I currently do most of my work in the dining room) and is designed to be perfect for two users.

My current office is awesome, but a small desk isn’t suitable for laying out larger projects or shooting DIY tutorials (hence why I post up on the dining room table).  There isn’t enough surface space for both Matt and my computers, so it’s definitely under-utilized.

I intend to bring in a table like this navy Strut desk from Blu Dot to be a flexible work surface, with the ability to be utilized from both sides of the piece.  I can envision me on one end taking styled workflow photographs for the blog whereas on the opposite side, Matt with crunch numbers and advise logistical type support for our big adventure (to be announced this month, I swear!).  Gold shelves (a future DIY), some simple gold stools for magazine stacking or added seating as well as a user-friendly rug (that I already own) will add all of the right details to the space.  Task Lighting will be the added touch to accompany some of the long work nights we’ve been pulling.

How do you feel about the initial design?  My goal is to have adequate storage and work surface, while remaining chic and stylish.

Do you work in an office?  Or, like me, do you work out of a common area of your home?
