Talk about a short commute, and who needs an expensive wardrobe when you can work in your PJs? This unused closet was transformed into an attractive home office with the help of a few shelves and wallpaper.
“Fabric shades are like great art: They transform a space and its inhabitants,” says Kara Roberts, Director of Merchandising for Smith & Noble, the manufacturer of the Moroccan-style shades shown here. Flat Roman shades fold up at the top when fully raised and lie flat when lowered, creating a low profile look that works with a wide range of fabrics and prints.
The way you choose to file your paperwork is entirely up to you. If you have the available closet space, an excellent and convenient way to file important papers is to use magazine holders, label them accordingly and line them up on the shelf for quick reference. An often forgotten set of needed paperwork is instructions and appliance pamphlets. Separate folders or holders should be created for them, too. So, if the microwave breaks or DVD player starts skipping, you'll know exactly where to go. Tip: For a budget-friendly filing solution, cut and paint cereal boxes to serve as repurposed magazine holders.
