The Home Office & a vintage typewriter

I love a nice tidy home office, there is so much inspiration out there Its hard to make a decision on where to locate one in your home...

I really love this idea for an office in the guest bedroom & the joinery matches the rest of my home & how lovely would it be to sit at the window while you work!!!

This space has an incredible amount of storage, definitely a necessity in an office. The chandelier really adds a lovely feminine touch , don't you think?

What a practical idea to keep your home tidy, especially if you live in a small space. Just close the doors & walk away from the work, Love it!!

 This is extremely pretty & feminine, I could see myself daydreaming here!!!

I would love to have something like this set up on the wall inside my walk in pantry, as well as a row of hooks to hang the school  & library bags from, like a mini command centre...



I scanned these 2 images from a copy of Home Beautiful about 12months ago, I just love this idea...


These pocket doors are a fabulous idea, when your not working just close them & pop your chair in the corner to use as an accent piece in the room, very clever design!!!


From memory, this extremely stylish desk belongs to Marcia Cross, AKA Bree from Desperate housewives, this lives in her trailer that she uses on set...very stylish indeed!!!


I would love a beautifully disguised filing system like this one...

A lovely addition to a teenagers room, I love the floating shelves...


This is my latest find, a lovely little vintage typewriter, I found this one at a local antique store for just $45
She needs a little bit of a clean up, but otherwise its in lovely condition.
My little Remington Portable came in its own hard case & is in full working condition, My kids think its a real hoot to pretend they are typing, like in the olden days. My mother in law said she worked on something similar at her first job. I took this photo in the antique store, forgive the quality, I will have to shine it up & make a lovely little display in the study area of our new home.

What have you done in your home to create a study area & storage for all of the mess a home office attracts?
