Located in Jackson, Wyoming, this 500-square-foot addition was designed by Carney Logan Burke Architects to house a thoughtfully designed studio separate from the main house, which happens to be a traditional log house. Combining rammed earth walls and floor-to-ceiling windows, the new space shines with stained concrete floors and a copper ceiling as it overlooks the courtyard.

The Designory founders renovated this house for their own family and it included carving out a galley-style office in a compact space. One side features bookshelves while the other side has a built-in desktop. At the end is a door that leads to an outdoor shower in case you need a break from work!

This office is located within a Brooklyn loft that belongs to a comedy writer and her husband, both of whom did most of the renovations to the interior themselves before bringing in interior designer Casey DeBois in the end to help round it out. One of the spaces was this black walled office with color coded books on the all-black shelves. A peacock blue Jonathan Adler chair adds another pop of color to the space.

Designed by Architect Prineas and styled by Natalie Walton, this small office could have been a bedroom but the homeowners requested an office to accommodate for two people. It’s also the designated spot for one of their bicycles.
