My corner work area....

This is the laptop area of my desk and where I've placed my inspiration board. The other side of the office/studio (not pictured here) isn't quite finished, so I don't have pics of it yet. The thing is, I need to add more shelving and I'm in a desperate search for that as we speak. The GOAL is to make everything look as neat as possible on the other side of my work area. So...this is all I'm showing for now until its finished. Like in this post, I'm looking for similar storage shelving... anything cute for storing files etc. Any suggestions on what stores to go to?? Thanks!

  1. Jen, I know this is an obvious choice but Ikea never fails! We are in the midst of looking at storage options too and recently saw that the Billy shelving systems now offers a little wall until that is very convenient! You can even add doors if you want: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/80116676

    Good Luck!

  2. Dariela,
    Thanks so much. I just looked at the IKEA link and those look great. I also found some of the ones I want : http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/30104322

    HOWEVER, they don't have an IKEA here in Vegas....and not sure if i want to drive to California just to buy these shelves. Hmmmm If i dont find anything locally I may have to make that trip. An 8 hour total drive back and forth!!

  3. Since you are a creative soul, I think you could create your own version of this.

    It was originally mentioned in Apartment Therapy-L.A.

    Very modern, and very versatile.

  4. yup i agree... i'm all about ikea for storage/shelving! maybe you could find ikea stuff on craigslist? i know on the weekends i see tons of listing for ikea stuff (at least in the chicagoland area)... or do you have the container store?

  5. Hi Anne,
    ooh those are kind of cute. BUT probably a bit impractical for the specific work area. I maybe looking at getting some mail sorters so I can place some outgoing cards and extra card stock.

    thanks...!

  6. Hello Erin,

    I wish I could look on Craigslist and find cool stuff here in Vegas. But i swear if you've ever looked at items on CL for Vegas...its like being brought back to the 80's haha its unreal! However since we don't have an IKEA here, not alot of IKEA stuff floating around on there.
    I am not sure about the container store. I will definitely look into that. Thank you!


    P.S. The color on the wall is "Mercer" by RALPH LAUREN. But it never photographs the same. In person it has a slight green tone to it...in these pics it looks more brown, weird....

  9. you could check Lowes or Home Depot...even Target (but I think theirs are black).

    And consider ordering from Ikea online. You can't beat their prices.

  13. I don't have a store suggestion, but I think some floating shelves in the same color as your wall would be nice. They'd let everything else shine and not be a distraction.

    I love brown.

  15. Hello Everyone, thanks for those who gave some suggestions...I found an odd place online that sells some mailer cubbies (not sure if thats the name) but I may try them. All in all...whatever i end up getting i will photograph and let you all know where i bought everything incase you may want something like it... etc.

    NOTE: I WILL BE GOING TO SEE SEX AND THE CITY TONIGHT , THEN FOR SOME MARTINIS (VIRGIN)...SO WILL UPDATE TONIGHT OR TOMORROW! : ) SO EXCITING!!!
