Carving Out a Work Space

When you live in a tiny, oddly shaped apartment, it can be difficult to figure out where to put your furniture. Our apartment has several nooks that we have struggled with since moving in over three years ago. One is in our bedroom and currently houses a dresser and our ginormous TV. We strung up a curtain to cover up the TV when we have guests, etc.

The second nook is in our living room and is the location of our only living room window. In this nook, we have placed: a bookshelf, a reading chair, a table and a Christmas tree. None of these setups seemed to work- the chair just gathered junk, the bookshelf was too tall and blocked light and the Christmas tree can't stay up all year.

While moving around some furniture, I had a lightbulb moment. Why not make that nook our office space? I usually blog at the kitchen table or in bed, but I've been wanting a space to spread out a little bit. Our desktop computer currently lives in a corner of our bedroom and is a clutter magnet. So, after a bunch of moving and rearranging, behold:

What do you think? Does our little office nook work? We want to paint the desk a bright grayish-white and get a larger rug to define the "office": area.
