Still, while my basic L-shaped desk (purchased on sale for just $70!) and standard Ikea shelving are more than enough to meet my needs for the time being, that hasn’t stopped me from daydreaming about what I might someday do once we have a house of our own and a hopefully expanded budget.
Here, a few of my favorite design and decor inspirations thus far from – where else? – Pinterest.
Fun, functional, feminine and sophisticated, this office's furniture, color scheme and decor all make me swoon.
Growing up, one of my friends had a wall of shelves just like this in her room, and I was always quite envious, since this type of open layout provides for so many creative storage and decor options.
Corner shelving units also strike my fancy, and I just love the color-blocking with books seen in this image.
This desk, a twist on the one I have now, would allow for plenty of work and storage space, given the wide desktop and two sets of drawers on each side. The room's color scheme is also calm and relaxing, which is just what I need to help keep me on track when things get stressful.
The chic chandelier and pretty ceiling patterns are just my style, as are the classic and sophisticated colors seen throughout the room.
Of course, in the end, I guess it's also fair to say that my ultimate dream office would actually look something a little more like this... :)
