Writing Desk, Armchair Tuck Neatly Into Stairwell Nooks in Foyer
You don't need a huge space to have a home office and reading nook. This desk and armchair are set up in small nooks created with the addition of a stairwell during a home renovation. A small writing desk offers enough room for a laptop and other desktop necessities, and the addition of a simple dining chair rather than a heavy duty office chair keeps the look streamlined.
This small home office space features a white desk and upholstered chair with black nailhead trim. Navy accents, such as the glass vases on the desk and a runner with white flowers, provide a pop of color, while a gold leaf table lamp adds unexpected flair. Large windows offer natural light and a sprawling city view.
When working with small spaces, maximize the potential with rooms that serve dual purposes. "Squeeze the most out of any space with multi-functional furniture," says Brittni Mehloff of Paper + Stitch. For instance, a home office can also be your guest room with the right pieces: a bookshelf that doubles as a desk and a sleeper sofa that meets the needs of your work time and overnight guests.

Small Eclectic Space with Sitting Area, Dining Area and Living Area
This elegant, eclectic studio makes the most of its space. In the far corner, a home office sits with a modern desk and rolling chair. Behind that, a sitting area gives the tenant a place to entertain, while the living room, sandwiched in the middle of the space has a large leather sofa with a chaise lounge to maximize seating potential. A breakfast cart and small table provide a place for the tenant to enjoy her meals.
"Well, why the hell not?" seems to be the motto of this small space. Even though the apartment only has a living room and a bedroom, the designers have fit much more life into the space. In the main living area, designated areas for a home office, a sitting area, a living room, a dining area and a wet bar have been established. The bedroom, although small, has made the most of its space with a slender dresser and hanging end table, and the entryway has been transformed into a makeshift mudroom. Who says you can't have it all?
