We're adding a small closet in a bedroom that has no closet right now. does anyone know if there are building codes in California for the minimum size of closets? 2' wide? 3' wide?

What type of wallpaper would go good with a room I am re-designing? And then what color paint for the walls? I am looking to re-create this closet office in one of my guest bedrooms and would like to put a similar pattern against the wall. Also take into consideration the beds that I am considering using (have decided which I like best). I am going with a shabby-chic look...I think :-).

Is not a plug in lamp, it is hardwired. Yes, you can find them at hardware stores or online.

The desk could be made by reusing a thrift PC desk, just disassemble it and install it using long wall brackets screwed to the studs for a better support, the second shelf looks like a floating shelf, those can be found at Lowe's or Home Depot as well. This is actually a good idea, I was thinking on something similar for my Daughter's room...

I actually did a DIY version of this - attached a painted dowel rod to the wall with cup hooks, and hung scissors and little tin pails from giant S-hooks (purchased at the hardware store).

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Sometimes less is more. The way this minimal desk space is tucked in makes it feel like a place where you could be alone with your journal, work on a chapter of that novel you're writing, or take the time to compose flowery thank-you notes.
Becky Harris added this to How to Turn Your Closet Into an Office
6. Plan to keep the desktop clear. Who needs drawers? Check out the system this person has installed to keep items like scissors and pens off the desktop.
Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to Punch Up Your Shelving
Creating a small workstation from a closet is a popular trend in homes where space is tight. Lining the wall behind the desktop and shelving with a feminine wallpaper helps this space-saving solution become an inviting spot to catch up on a little work.
Vanessa Brunner added this to Share Your Dorm Room Must-Haves
Or perhaps you plan on tucking your desk away into any available nooks and crannies. How do you plan on making the most out of your space?
Shoshana Gosselin added this to Hot and Functional Desk Lamps
If your desk is against a wall, try a wall sconce and save desk space. There are so many plug-in options like this one!
Lisa Frederick added this to Create a Home Office on a Shoestring
This little niche, the most popular home office on Houzz in 2011, gets star treatment from a dramatic, sideswept curtain that picks up the vivid turquoise wallpaper. The functional touches are first-rate: a wall-mounted rack for office supplies, a floor bin that corrals papers and periodicals, a swing-arm lamp that preserves desk space.
1. This year, Houzz users got excited about home offices that made use of an existing space. This adorable and tiny office did a great job of transforming a closet. Just add wallpaper, shelving, a built-in desk — and voila!
Dana Miller added this to Ditch a Door to Open a Space
Remove the door from an existing small closet and hang a colorful fabric curtain instead. Add a floating desktop and open shelving to reinvent the office concept. For a fun surprise, install complementary printed wallpaper within the closet. Pull up a chair and you're ready to work.See more closet offices
Samantha Schoech added this to A Desk for Every Home Office
This space has two things going for it. 1. It's in a closet and thus not taking up floor space, and 2. close the curtain and it's gone — no need to look at those unwritten thank-you cards while you're eating. Oh, also, it's cute.
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to 10 Feminine Workspaces for Hardworking Women
Have an extra closet anywhere? It's been my experience that most people have too much stuff. Think of whether you can clean out a closet somewhere and you might just find yourself a new office nook. It doesn't take much, just a surface area, some shelves and good light. This great little office space is spruced up with color and pattern on the back wall. Notice how the door was removed and replaced with a curtain — great idea!
Here is our inspiration for turning an ordinary closet into a home office and craft space.
On the wall. Making the most out of your wall can help desk areas like this stay clean and functional. This homeowner installed a horizontal hanging rod to store pencils, pens and other small items within easy reach. The light fixture has been mounted to the wall too, freeing up precious surface area. An articulating arm means the light can be pushed out of the way when not in use.
