Granada Tile

Here's a fantastic historian's office with Granada Tile's Venezia tile on the floor to match the wide array of books on the floor to ceiling book shelves.

I'm still pulling ideas for the office area in my cottage in the woods 5 year now 4 year project. It's a mite difficult since offices weren't common in the middle ages. LOL With mostly stone, a turret for dining, open living area and gardens for dragons, fairies, gnomes, wizards, dwarfs and me..... well....

Since my cottage is now hovering around 1600 sq ft., I think the living area will be the best place for a good 6-7' desk off the front wall which will have gothic windows overlooking the small front porch. I have two monitors, printer, 2 file drawers, modem, back up, UPS and a ton of cords! I'll definitely need a keyboard drawer and a drawer for office stuff. I've had several reiterations of ideas but nothing has totally hit the spot. I'm hoping to fit in a built in cabinet/shelves that will go into the entry wall.

I am getting the cottage wired and with boosters for high tech items that I may be able to use. But my desk will have a spot for my old Goofy phone.

Come on Houzz - I'm hoping you'll come up with some ideas - think outside the box! LOL

These offices are nice but I haven't embraced paperless yet so I need storage, a place to spread out papers I'm working on & a place to work on computer. Some of these have too many knick knacks to be practical. I also think you have to make a distinction between a real working home office vs a place to pay bills.
