Big Round Pizza Box Office Shabby-chic Style Home Office, Philadelphia

This home office was designed to be fun and inspiring. The room is filled with DIY projects including recycled white end tables, recycled art work and bulletin board using a frame from MOMA and grass cloth wallpaper. The wall pattern was based on a gigantic pizza box I cut into a circle. See how it was done on my blog under DIY Ideas- www.loveyourroom.blogspot.com. The coffee table is a mid century modern antique, and the sofa and desk are from IKEA.

Hi. Love the desk, especially the legs. But looks like it's no longer sold. I'm a little confused, was this all from Ikea or did you buy the top from the Ikea and then the legs separately? Did the white filing cabinet come with the desk as a unit or did you just measure and get a filing cabinet that snuck under the height of the desk? Just lovely. Love the gray legs. Would appreciate hearing from you. Thanks in advance.

I love the modern look of white but I want with a hint of gray/cream in it. The wall color you used here is kind of what I'm looking for. Can you tell me what color you used for the walls?

Niche Interiors added this to Beautiful new painting, now what? Artful hanging tips for the home.
You can mix different styles and sizes as long as the composition is balanced.
Between Naps on the Porch added this to Color Without Commitment
The overall scheme of this home office is neutral with just a few punches of color. It would be super easy to go all neutral or to completely change the color scheme.
Janell Beals - House of Fifty added this to Twelve Creative Ways To Decorate With Message Boards
I've seen message boards lined with fabric but never wallpaper, let alone grasscloth! What a fabulous idea. This message board, placed above the desk among a collection of images, fits right in. The wallpaper brings beautiful texture to the vignette that works well with the zebra wood on the chair.
Becky Harris added this to Do You Personalize Your Workspace?
This area is a great example of how to keep things neat but also bring in some beloved items. Most of them are contained on the wall, including a beautiful inspiration board that can be changed around daily.
Janell Beals - House of Fifty added this to Make a Place for Children's Art
Here is another example of mixing a range of images, children's and others, in a series of frames. Tip: Consider hanging a framed message board alongside the art. It provides a space to pin up the latest creations, allowing for a simple way to update the collection.
Becky Harris added this to Ideabook 911: Desks in the Bedroom — Yea or Nay?
If a bedroom workspace is a must, keep it beautiful and neat like this one. The white desk and cabinet, the lovely inspiration board and prints keep this area from feeling like an office.
Lily Gahagan added this to Design Dilemma: Decorating a Dorm Room
If 00kate could get rid of the hutch above her desk, it would make a huge difference. (Perhaps your school has storage for spare furniture? It never hurts to ask.) The space is too small for that chunky a piece of furniture. Instead, fill the area above the desk with a cork board. Use it to keep track of your schedule and upcoming exams, and leave a little space for inspiration culled from magazines or elsewhere. You can also cover the cork with patterned fabric for even more interest.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Understated Texture: Grasscloth in the Home
Looking for an easy way to display artwork and notes but not feeling the typical bulletin board? Find an interesting frame (even an inexpensive one at a flea market) and frame a piece of grasscloth for a functional, colorful, texture-filled display!
Becky Harris added this to 13 Inspiring Ways To Style Your Inspiration Board
Line your board with grasscloth. This designer filled a frame with grasscloth wallpaper to serve as a sophisticated background for her favorite things.
Natalie Myers added this to A Gallery Wall for Every Personality
Inspired. Gallery walls do inspire. You can start one above a desk/work area and center it around a framed memo board. The memo board becomes a constantly changing mini-gallery that fits in with the larger composition.

I think I just like the idea of one bigger thing with smaller things on it (the wood board thing/bulletin board)
