OF­FICE IN a Closet


Flea Market Décor - - Great Finds -

If you work from home or sim­ply would like an or­ga­nized, des­ig­nated spot where you can sit and deal with bills, in­vi­ta­tions or recipes, this re­pur­pos­ing project may be the an­swer. “Many of our cus­tom home­own­ers want a for­mal study, but they also want to carve out a lit­tle bit of space for work, home­work and ev­ery­day life,” say Jenny Le­poris and Poppy Bourg, fin­ish-out co­or­di­na­tors for Robert El­liott Cus­tom Homes. “The key is to be able to con­ceal the space in some way so that it can be messy at times. To do this, you could use a slid­ing door, a nice drap­ery or even a fold­ing screen.” Some home­own­ers make room in their clos­ets (think dressers) in the bed­room or use a linen closet in the hall­way—what­ever works, as long as the lo­ca­tion will be ad­van­ta­geous for its pur­pose. Though the beauty of mini of­fices is that you can hide these spa­ces eas­ily, use shelves, cork boards and boxes to keep your pa­pers and projects neat. “Or­ga­ni­za­tion in these spa­ces is key so ev­ery­thing has a place, since typ­i­cally these spa­ces are com­pact,” say Jenny and Poppy. Paint the in­te­rior walls, or hang some wall­pa­per for a fin­ished look you’ll love.
