On my own

I dream of the day when I have my own office and my own business and no one telling me what to do.  I know its going to take ALOT of work if I ever want to make it reality, but I already like to dream about what my future office will look like.

Here are some of the things top on my list:

(Suzanne Kasler's office published in Atlanta Homes by Erica George Dines)

~Amazing Storage to organize, organize, organize~

(Nate Berkus)

(source unknown)

~A large inspiration board~

(Betsy Burnham's office from Lonny, photo by Patrick Cline)

~Color, pattern and more color!~


~Plenty of design books to keep me reading for years~

(Carrier and Co)

(Ruby Press)

~Pretty desk accessories~

I'm sure there is more of the list- but these are tops for now.

Happy Weekend!

Thanks for answering! Good luck with school - it is so much work! I'm sure you will have your beautiful office one day!

I was actually wondering because we are looking for a furniture maker/workroom in NYC. We have a new project there and were hoping a blogger/designer in the area may be able to help. If you know of any, I would love to hear from you! Have a good weekend!

I'm just grateful that I have my own office with a door and a big window, and not a cubicle. But it sure would be nice if my little space were as pretty as those!

I too dream of having my own office and being my own boss... and all the time and hardwork will eventually pay off for us. Thank you for sharing all inspiring photos. The floral arrangements complete the looks! I love flowers and succulants.

Great pictures....I am trying to convert our spare bedroom into my studio/workspace...and these pictures are sooo inspiring. I wish i could stay as organized as the top photo...with all of the baskets. I love that one...and the Lonny office.!
