Home Offices

I have been pining away at lots of beautiful home offices lately.  There’s a reason… I finally got a job in Iowa! Not only am I completely stoked to be officially living in Iowa full-time, but also, this job allows me to do a lot of my work from home! 😀

This is the perfect set up for me.  It will allow me more spare time to get projects done, and we also have the office space set up for me to do it!  But, currently our bright red and semi-cramped office space is needing a major spruce.  So, enter blogland inspiration. 

Some photos of offices out there are gorgeous.  However, social work doesn’t allow me to be glamorous or clutter my work space with pretties.  That leaves me fewer options.  I need a functional space that I also feel comfortable and like myself in.  Plus, we are hoping to leave the futon on the other side of the room and use the space someday for a partial play-room as well.  Oh, and did I mention that I can’t change much as far as items because I am working with a non-existent budged!? Let’s see if I can pull this off…

Here are some faves for you all!

I love the bookcases in this photo.  It utilizes the space well, which is what I really need to do!

This office also has great shelving for storage, while also remaining a bit feminine and glam.  I need an office that can work for me from everything from my personal business, to kids and family projects, to social work moments.

I also like having my desk in the middle of the room or at least facing outwards instead of towards a wall.  It helps if I need to meet with clients.  Here is another one like that.

I’m not a huge fan of green walls, but I love the black frames in this office.

This office has been my dream office for years now and was the inspiration for the office in my last house being light blue.  This one might end up light blue as well, with the addition of the red items. Again with the black frames!

Another blue office.  Reminds me of mine with the couch.  Something so sweet about this one!

This one is so sweet and has that touch of glam I’d love.

Well?  What do you all think?  I’d love suggestions for my new home office!

My Life Gets Even Busier!

In addition to my full time job, planning a wedding, caring for two puppies and a fiance and decorating our first home, I also get to be a student again now!  I just got accepted into grad school!  I will be starting my master’s program in forensic psychology online with the Chicago School of Professional Psychology this coming Monday.  I am excited and nervous.  I will be busy, but that’s the way I like it.  So, if my post slow a bit once in a while it may be because I am doing homework!  Here are the books for my first term:
