Pinterest Inspiration...Office Nooks

Since Pinterest came along, I know many of us have gotten a bit more creative in thinking outside the box of how to change certain aspects of our homes and such...it definitely helped me spark that idea to convert an upstairs alcove/hall into a small office nook and I am loving how it is coming together. 
This is how it currently looks-to keep it simple and neutral, we wanted a built-in system that could serve a multitude of purposes, but mostly could be somewhere I could work from home that's close to Caroline's nursery, and a act as a spot for organization, creative projects, and such. 
With that, I have been scouring my favorite site for ideas and such to bring in fun pops of color, a patterned chair, etc. and I cannot wait to finish it up and make it "my own". 
This is where I need help and advice from you!! I need any and all ideas that pop in your mind when you see this blank canvas...it seems like I've got a mental block for exactly what I want out of this space, so any recommendations you can send my way would be much appreciated. Something has to keep me busy and preoccupied ;).

  1. I love it! I seriously need a space like that. Space is super limited here, so it'll be a while.

    A patterned chair would look great there!!! I know whatever you choose it will be beautiful :)

  3. I agree - a patterned chair would add a LOT to the space oh and maybe a colored lamp or vase =)

  5. This is a great spot!! Love that you took advantage of free space in your home, without having to sacrifice a whole room. I love the third photo down...you could add a fun accent color too!

  11. A brightly colored chair, for sure with pops of an accent color--perhaps in desk accessories? The space looks great and I can't wait to see the final product!

  12. It looks great - did you have someone custom build it on-site? Love it!

    And I agree with many of the other ladies - find one piece you LOVE and then decorate around that. I've been careful lately to make sure everything coordinates, but isn't TOO matchy / matchy.

    There are great storage boxes at Ikea that come in white, kelly green, orange and a few other colors I think. I used them in Jackson's nursery and in my home office and old work office. They add some color and hide clutter!
