Workspace of the Week: Simple beauty

This week’s Workspace of the Week is Jacob’s small space solution:

If you live in a small space, then finding a way to integrate an office into your home can be a very difficult task. I love Jacob’s design decision to keep everything to a limited color palette in this open floor plan. The office blends into the room, and the plant acts as a very simple separator of purposes. Additionally, there is no clutter, which makes it even more pleasant. Thank you, Jacob, for sharing your space with us. It is truly gorgeous.

Want to have your own workspace featured in Workspace of the Week? Submit a picture to the Unclutterer flickr pool. Check it out because we have a nice little community brewing there. Also, don’t forget that workspaces aren’t just desks. If you’re a cook, it’s a kitchen; if you’re a carpenter, it’s your workbench.

    Uh, that doesn’t look like that cramped of a room to me.

    @Christian: I think they meant “small space” because they don’t have an extra room to house an office, and so have to use part of the living room for it.

    LOVE the space. And I recognize the candle holder – Ikea, yes?

    That looks nice. We have a second bedroom for an office but we currently have a houseguest so I am thinking of combining the office with the living room like in the photo above.

    How do you keep the wheels of the chair from messing up the hardwood floors? Mine screwed up the floor in the office so I got a little protective mat, but I think that’d look horrible in the living room.

    really nice – it goes well with the rest of the room. And I love how clean the desk is – wish mine stayed that clean!

    Nice use for a huge living room corner. Friends of mine recently did that but in their 500 sq foot apartment by building a platform. their office space is above the TV and entertainment center. you climb 5 stairs that are also bookshelves to get up to it.

    Only doable because of the really tall 16 foot ceiling. I’m envious of their floor to celing bookshelves from ikea that line the walls, they got tired of looking at sandblasted industrial brick.

    This looks great – how do you use the drawers I wonder? I wouldn’t need that many drawers for office supplies and it looks like you can’t hang files in them…

    This is really beautiful; I love the simple, clean lines and soothing color scheme. And the backlighting really “kicks it up a notch”! 🙂

    It’s sooooo ….niiiiiiicccceeee 🙂

    aahhhhhhh 🙂

    The minimal color palette really does lend to a more visually quiet look.

    problem is…I think I’d be too relaxed to be productive 😉 Well, it at least inspires me to have something of a “peacefulness room” in my next place. 🙂

    Hi everybody,

    Thank you for your comments, and for posting my workspace on Unclutterer.

    I just got a new appartment, so I have to create a new workspace from scratch now.

    Best regards,
