All about the furniture: A Split decision.

Hazel here and I’m supposed to write a post about furniture but for the past few months I’ve been re accessing our home and one of the things that kept me in front of my computer was “shared office spaces”. It’s not only us – a lot of couples share and it has to work for both of them – a lot of times two totally different purposes incorporated in one room. My husband and I share an office and most of the time it works like this:



Here are the spaces that I’ve pinned in my quest for the perfect shared office.

I love this one as it has a subtle “man” and “woman” sides. And of course, those windows …………………….. !!!!!

Another tandem. This time from Birch and Bird. Hop over to the original post – there are more pictures of shared spaces.

If you are not fortunate enough to have windows, just line up the desks against the wall and use the extra space for your goodies. Click on the link to see some more spaces from the original post.

Suppose you can say that my “all about the furniture” post was about double desks but to me it was all about my husband ……………………….. NOW, please don’t tell him that he got filed away with my furniture! Here you can have a look at our shared space. He decided on everything except 2 items ………………. if you can guess what’s mine, leave me a comment.  I love to hear and see what you think and do.

Thank you for looking at shared spaces with me today. Please check back as my fellow contributors and I have lots and lots more to share right here on Craft Storage Ideas. Have a great day!

  1. My fav is the first picture. I love the separator wall. The gray and white is very clean looking. I work from home but I share my office space with my hubby’s computer area. It is a good size space, and there are plenty of windows towards the front of the house and one to the entry way. If I had the opportunity to design another house, I think I would have put the office facing south instead of north. I love a sunny work space. On the flip side, my craft room is facing south–love it! If I could have had every room facing south, I would have… but I just couldn’t figure out how to design that one!

  2. Debra, I live in an old house as well and sometimes I think it’s better. At least you don’t have to blame yourself for the layout malfunctions! Thanks SO much for leaving a comment. I love to hear and see what my readers do. Love and Sunshine from Sunny SA. Hazel

  3. GREAT post Hazel!! I love the first one. Separated, yet together! And the second to last, facing one another with storage and display for your own things!

  4. Answer the question: What would you do if you ruled the world. Many bloggers seek and, regrettably, disappoint at writing web blog articles for generate funds on-line.
