Work Space At Home

   Working from home can be a luxury!  Especially on a cold winter day when you want  to cozy up to your computer or book work and be left alone.  All of us have  different visions of what that workspace would be.  It could just have a desk or maybe some cozy seating, a TV,windows or even a fireplace real or fake! Here are some photos, gathered from European and American magazines! 
The important thing is to be free of clutter, which is alway so impossible for me! A large
closet or amoire tucked in corner can help reduce the amount of papers on your desk!




At the London apartment of Jimmy Choo founder Tamara Mellon, decorator Martyn Lawrence-Bullard mixed a vintage Jansen desk, a 1960s Eames chair upholstered in hot-pink leather, and a Warhol print of Grace Kelly.








In the Millbrook, New York home of Nina Griscom and Leonel Piraino, French metal bookcases from Griscom’s eponymous interior furnishings store and a sculpture of rake tines are displayed in the rear hallway; the pedestal is from BoBo Intriguing Objects, the window-seat pillows and cushions are covered in an Andrew Martin fabric, and the rug is from Restoration Hardware.


In the painting studio of a 19th-century farmhouse in Duchess County, New York, the vintage trestle table is from Metropolitain, and the art is by homeowner Greg Furman


      The focal point of architect Gil Schafer’s attic studio in Dutchess County, New York, is a neoclassical             window; the floor lamp is a retooled surveyor’s tripod.

 Designer Matthew Patrick Smyth added a graceful note to the library of his 19th-century Colonial in Sharon, Connecticut, with a vintage French desk from Neo-Studio.
