Office slump ...

If you spend most hours of your day working in an office as I do, you have no doubt experienced the 'office slump.' You'll recognize the symptoms - a desire to rearrange, change out the wall color and art, get a new chair, buy colorful file folders, etc., but have no clue how to marry function and form within your budget.

This image from Home Design Decorates shows a home office not much different from our own.
Our desks and chairs are in stained woods, rather than white finishes.

I have a roomy home office with lots of natural light and ample space for both hubby and me to work at each of our individual L-shaped desks with plenty of file drawers, additional worktables, armoire storage and guest seating. But, the room lacks color and the task lighting leaves a lot to be desired. I'm in an office slump!

Apparently, there is a modern maven inside me yearning for a sleek space like those above. I have no clue where office stuff is stored in the workspace owned and designed by Marie Olsson Nylander (left), but it looks delicious! I'm equally afflicted with 'I Wantism' when viewing the two-seater home office (right) via Happy To Be At Home.

Maybe I would be cured if I could find a way to go paperless and declutter my office. I would love to have a clean, spare space with loads of good looks like the one shown above from The Design Fairy.

Glam 'his and hers' desks and textured wall treatments (shown above) make my heart sing. At left, designer Ron Marvin flaunts the masculine side in Lonny Magazine. A sunny space with Asian influence is featured in Elle Decor (right).

Perhaps, I just need to add some colorful accents to create an inspirational workspace. Image above via Home Office Decoration.

Today, I feel like I want the diva design treatment shown above. I'm not sure that hubby could ever be convinced ... although he does like blue, he's just not the 'diva' type. Oh well ...

I actually prefer the third photo. I find it interesting and unique in some ways. I'll definitely make my office look like that. Thanks for sharing.
