Rental Decorating – Home Office

Lately I have really been missing having some type of home office space. I think I have a space I can use in this apartment in the dining room. Now I just need some inspiration!

I love this simple desk and colorful space with comfy chair from It’s a very functional space but doesn’t take up a lot of room, which is exactly what I need.

Something like this would be easy to throw together. I can search for a couple of old file cabinets to redo and just lay a board across the top.

I love love love this idea from Pawley’s Island Posh. The wall I’m thinking of using is open to the entry and living room on one side and has a short wall with the door to the kitchen on the other. Putting a bookshelf next to the desk like this would really make the space feel like an office.

Since the space is small I could also go with a glass or clear desk so it doesn’t look like it takes up as much space then add a super comfy chair. I love the large colored bulletin board here. Since I can’t paint the apartment, this is a great alternative to get some color and some useful space.

Another option would be to just have a small table in my bedroom. It would be right by a window (that overlooks the parking lot though).

I do have more space than this to use, but this is a great idea if you have a super small space for a home office.

You could do the same thing with shelving with a larger space too. The bonus to this is when you move and take it with you, it’s easily adaptable to the new space.

If you have a small nook, you can use curtains to make a little office space. Photo from That Inspirational Girl.

Maybe I could do something a bit taller since the desk will share space with the dining table. That might give it more of a sense of separation.

And if anyone knows where I can get a pink typewriter, that would be totally awesome!
