My Houzz: Sophisticated Family Home Breathes Scandinavian Style

Holly Marder © 2012 Houzz

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This cozy little nook in youngest daughter Bente's bedroom provides the perfect place for doing homework and crafts.
Rachel Grace added this to Renovation Detail: The Desk Sconce
A single sconce is centered within the cozy little desk nook of a little girl's bedroom in the Netherlands. It's the perfect spot for doing homework and crafts.Tell us: Do you work under a wall lamp? Show us your sconces!
4. Go semi-built-in with a desk under the eaves. If you have basic carpentry skills and a DIY bent, you could feasibly construct something similar to the desk shown here using cut-to-order lumber and floating shelving, for a feature that makes use of every inch of space.
