Office / Guest Room Combo: Plan

One of the extra bedrooms in our house does not have an exterior window. It has a window, and at one point it was an exterior window. However, an addition to the house over its lifetime has made it an interior window. Because of that, I have always struggled with how to use this room and what to do with it. After several years of this room functioning as a bedroom, we have decided to make this into an office / guest room combo.


Before we began designing this room, we headed to Pinterest for some inspiration. Here is the look I was going for:


Inspiration


I love so many things about this picture. I love how they were able to fit a daybed and a desk in such a small space, I love the colors, and I love the combination of art and mirrors on the wall.

In this space, I love how they were able to fit a day bed in such a small space. This space is personable and meaningful to the people that live there. The colors are also rich and compliment each other well. This daybed can be used as a couch or a daybed which is the perfect set up for a combination room.

This desk set up is awesome! I love the contrasting colors, the way the space uses every organization, and how functional it is. I won't be able to do something this big for my desk setup, but I would love to have this in a future house.

When I was coming up with inspiration for my space, I had a few things I wanted to accomplish with this room:


  • I wanted a space that was functional

  • I needed to be able to use it as guest room

  • I wanted to have an office set up that where I could have two monitors for work

  • I also wanted an area to store our work out gear


This is what I came up with for my vision board:


Stay tuned over the next couple weeks as I bring this vision to life!
