Creating A Work Space

Our spare room is no longer occupied and we've decided to try and turn it into a work / study space for ourselves. Well more for the OH as he needs a decent area to get study done which involves a lot of drawing so we need somewhere we can spread our stuff out and not be distracted. 

I'm hoping to stick with the grey colour scheme we have in the living room, more so because we have a load of ti left over and I can't see it go to waste but also because its a really bright shade and wold brighten up the room loads. Dark colours won't work in there as there is only the one small window which doesn't let in a lot of light at certain times of the day. I love the idea of VELUX windows and if I had free reign to do as I please I would definitely get those put in. They can be jazzed up with blinds which would be great for adding a bit of character to the room.

I'd need to have a minimalist look in any kind of work space because I can't stand clutter, it stresses me out, I love the layout of this one:

I love the look of this office, you can right through the underneath of the desk which gives no space for clutter to gather. All files are lined up neatly at the back too. I had plenty of filing boxes and folders ready to go anyway.

How amazing are those built ins? Built ins are the way forward for me, they give so much storage space while freeing up more floor space in the room. The drawing board would be ideal for the OH as he is currently studying architecture, would make a big difference from leaning over the kitchen table! I'm hoping to source one second hand for him but no luck yet.

I need one of these for my iMac too, I haven't seen them in the shops so will probably have to order them online but it will be a great way of keeping the desk op tidy.

As you can tell my theme is more neat and tidy than anything else! Have you got a work space in your home? I'd love some more inspiration.
