Workspace of the Week: Gracefully organized

This week’s Workspace of the Week is Gayle’s armoire office:

There are so many wonderful things about Gayle’s office. The most amazing thing about it is that the entire office can fold up and completely disappear. Second, everything is contained, nothing is out cluttering up the workspace. Third, everything is well labeled. My guess is Gayle has no difficulty finding anything in her office. Fourth, the magnetic strip on the left side of the cabinet is a nice alternative to a traditional cork board and takes advantage of what might otherwise be unused space. Fifth, the cable management is fantastic. And, finally, the pull-down work surface makes this a nice size workspace considering that it is an entire office in an armoire. Thank you, Gayle, for submitting your impressive office to our Flickr group.

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.

    I am confused – is it Gayle’s office or Grace’s office?

    Ah. That image: ordered containers, tools at the ready, promising something creative…BUT able to disappear into the furniture into a moment’s notice.

    My life feels more in order already.

    I love this workspace! It is exactly what is needed in a small space. And it’s beautiful as well! From the armoire itself to the colors and the fabric on the chair make you want to sit down and get some work done. Love it!

    I love it! I’d be interested if anyone knows of a similar armoire available nationally.

    I love the organization and the beautifully labeled storage…but what I really love is the armoire itself! I’ve seen armoire offices before, of course, but they always seemed somewhat impractical for getting much work done because of the lack of workspace. The drop-down panel solves that problem perfectly while still allowing the entire office to be closed up and invisible when not in use. I would imagine that the same principle would work with an office-in-a-closet setup as well. Love it!

    Very nice! Had to laugh over the changing colors of the boxes — my urges for a different color in the room would be fulfilled much less expensive if I’d just thought of THAT!

    @Sandy: Good question. It’s Gayle Grace’s office, according to her Flickr profile. (“By All Things Home Organizing™, Gayle Grace.”)

    @Rachel and @Sandy — Ha! The lesson here is that I shouldn’t try to write posts while worrying about hurricanes!

    Amazing. I need to do something about my office now. I think I am going to steal the magnetic strip idea 😉

    This is so pretty and organized! Check out the rest of the photos on flickr-Gayle has gone thru several versions of her office named artistically as “the teal period” the red period” etc. It’s interesting to see the updates.
