Office Inspiration

As I mentioned in my Photo A Day post, I haven’t left the house much. And for awhile, I was working from home a lot which leads me to this post. My home office is a disaster. Andy and I had dreams of a Pirate’s Den even before we got this house but our lair has merged with a distribution center for BBQ sauce! I still have high hopes that we can make our two fields work together, even keeping our Pirates theme. I promise Andy, I will not throw out your endless supply of USPS boxes. For now, I am just thinking and planning—thanks to other bloggers and Pinterest, inspiration is not hard to come by. Here’s just a few of my favorites (click the image for source)… I will be keeping our pirate theme so most of these are organization and layout inspiration for me. What does your office look like? I want to see, comment with a link to your own office post!

I can totally see this as my corner of the office space, plenty of storage but yet plenty of room for visual appeal!

While our office won’t have white white white walls, I do like the typography accents!

This room could totally exist in our house!

Definitely a fan of the chalkboard wall trend, but I hate writing with chalk!

I like the look of this desk out from against the wall but I know I’ll want a much larger, clunkier desk.

Love the whole wall dedicated to a inspiration board.

The following is a shot of Kevin Kidney, a Disney artist’s, office!

We definitely have the cabinets to pull that look off, even with the glass windows!

Oh, for the sake of storage…

The Before

And I guess if you must know, just so you know how bad it is. This is our downstairs room that basically stores everything from the office, to BBQ product and shipment, to anything else we don’t know what to do with yet!

P.S. I totally saved this for the end, so the only truly dedicated readers would reach this abomination!

P.P.S. A few days after I took this picture, the small opening in the floor by the window has now been filled with a few dozen cases of BBQ sauce! Help me out!

Now you believe me… please help!

I believe in magic. I believe in the power of true love. I believe in fairy tales and happy endings. And I live to create stationery and art for the young at heart to allow my fellow dreamers to treasure all of life’s most wondrous moments!
