Apartment Therapy‘s technology blog, Unplgged, has had a string if nice home offices recently as part of their The Perfect Workspace Contest 2010. Here are my favorites from the contest, plus some others that have recently come to my attention:
First up, Sayeh Pezeshki’s home office in Los Angeles. I swear I’ve seen this before somewhere… if someone can tell me where, I will post the link here. Here’s her tip for keeping your desk clean: “What I always tell people is that if you don’t use something EVERY day, it doesn’t belong on your desk. Adding in some pieces of inspiration, along with modern or cute office supplies also helps.”
Next up, stylist Marcus Hay‘s studio apartment home office:
It calls the walls a dusty mauve; they almost look opalescent in the photo. Beautiful with the hardwood floors and furniture.
And here’s graphic designer Jennifer Ramos’s (Made by Girl) mostly white office, punched up with some wallpaper and grey-blue curtains:
Kevin’s home office has a soothing shade of blue on the walls. The workspace is probably a little small for a business, but perfect for a regular home office. If you like the vintage look, take the cue of getting a vintage desk, accessories (great typewriter), and colors.
Hunter’s home office is full of accessories with personal meaning, helping the creativity process:
Here we have a very clean look with floating shelves and a whole lot of storage in the cabinets underneath the shelves:
A few common themes here:
- Groupings of photos or art on one wall, either with similar art or similar frames
- Hidden cables
- Flat screen monitors (lots of iMacs!)
- Desk lamps (don’t rely on overhead lighting)
Am I missing anything?
