Bear in mind that saying,”A place for everything and everything in its place”? It couldn’t be more accurate than when designing a home office. While it’s important your space is a pleasing one to spend time in, it is equally important that the room provides operational work surfaces and storage. And of course, you want to surround yourself with beautiful things so you have a pleasant atmosphere in which to get your job done. If I could design my dream home office, it’d probably look a lot like this. — Michelle from Design Evolution
