Or­ga­nize an At­trac­tive Of­fice

Southern Living (USA) - - Home & Garden -

Cor­ley needed her ad­ja­cent desk area to be a white back­drop for de­sign work. She made it both at­trac­tive and func­tional with smart cab­i­netry, float­ing shelves, clut­ter-tam­ing bas­kets, and jolts of yel­low.

DECORAT E WITH USE­FUL SUP­PLIES

To keep the of­fice feel­ing more cozy than cor­po­rate, Cor­ley lined her shelves with bas­kets stuffed with fab­ric sam­ples. “The mag­i­cal thing about them is that they fully dis­guise their con­tents and can also make a room look pulled to­gether and ex­pen­sive, much more so than other types of stor­age

bins.” A cork­board wraps the wall above the desk to play up the nat­u­ral tex­ture of the stor­age bas­kets.

ADD A LIT­TLE POL­ISH

Be­cause a stan­dard rolling chair would have looked too ho-hum, the de­signer in­stead se­lected a cushy chartreuse che­nille seat and com­ple­mented it with a match­ing lamp­shade on the brass sconce above. Lastly, the brass Waterworks hard­ware on the cab­i­nets mir­rors the warmth of the bright chair and adds a dressy sheen to the room.
