small space . work station

Our work station is complete. 

When living in a ranch style home
there are many pros and cons, like anything. You have a big open space where you can see & share everything, however you really have to define your spaces.  Where do we put the TV, how do we arrange the furniture and can we fit a work station in our living space?

Thanks to Pinterest once again I began looking for work stations I could see in my home.

This work station was one of the first spaces I came across and really liked. 

And this is what I came up with...

We really love this new space in our home.
Desk, shelves & file storage - IKEA
Ikat Pillow - Etsy
Chair & lamp - Target
Birdlantern - TJ Maxx & Chevron Frame - Anthropologie
LOVE wooden letters - craft show

There are few touches I'd like to add - inspirational quotes in frames or a corkboard with a painted herringbone pattern.

It's a cute spot even before these additions to jot down a grocery list, pay bills or pin onto dream boards.
We are so glad we added this new area to our home.


  1. Great space Lauren! When Eric & I build our home, be prepared for me to ask for help! ;)

  2. Thank you Erin!! Oh, I would love to help - see you soon :-)
