10 small office interior design ideas
Lately, I have been obsessing over small office interior design ideas like hiding an office in a closet space or creating a nook in a wide hallway design. Or simply having a small office design in the guest bedroom.
This new inspiration of course comes with now most of us are working from home. And the fact is that many of us did not plan to have a proper home office set up for remote working.
For me, the reality is that I am now fully focused on doing remote work from home, more long term.
And also this year we downgraded our living by moving into our summer house on a small island somewhere in Mediterranean. Due to this, and remote work we are now eagerly looking for small office ideas that can work in our space.

Thanks for this! Putting in an artwork or frame near or facing the desk looks like a good idea. I’d try putting up pastel colored ones for cooler tone. I’d also probably print a similarly toned desk mat design to match :) Thanks again!
