Shelving Back-Drop

If you've been around here long enough you'll know that I love seeing a good office space.
One aspect that I like to see in an office space is shelving. The more the better. I especially like these spaces where the shelving becomes the back-drop for the room. 

There's no desk jammed up against the wall, it's in the middle of the room with some great shelving in the background {this is exactly how mine is right now, jammed against the wall & probably the way it will stay because of the layout of the room & not to mention the lack of space in our apartment}. Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with a desk up against the wall...there are many, many, lovely office spaces & nooks where the desk is up against the wall. But, if the option of shelving like these spaces was available, I'd probably take it. 

There's just something about the look.
This first photo is of Emily's workspace in her home. She transformed her dining room into a home office and it is awesome. You must go check out the whole transformation process here, because the before & after is quite spectacular. It's probably one of my favourite transformations that I've seen and there isn't anything in this space that I don't like.

Here are some other great office spaces that have shelving as the back-drop...

What do you think of shelving as the back-drop in an office space? Kinda nice, eh?
Anyways, just a little inspiration to get your weekend started. 
Hope you have a great weekend!


  1. I'm loving the desks in these spaces. Especially the X framed wooden one!

  2. I've never really thought of having shelving as the back-drop in an office space, but now that I see it I want to do it for my own office! Unfortunately I'm in the same boat as you and don't have the space to do it properly. Someday though! I especially love the last photo with the back of the shelves painted blue!

  3. If I had high enough walls, I would totally do this! Swinging by from the Blog Hop... And I'm your 100th follower! Hope to see you around...

  4. The home office is one of my favorite spaces...just sitting at my desk makes me feel productive :) I completely agree with you...give me a backdrop of floor to ceiling shelves displaying all of my goodies and it is office perfection!
