The home office. That’s a mouthful! For me it is the converted guest room. Requisite with desk, chair, credenza, printer, it is stacked to the gills with samples, client files, notebooks, drawings, papers, supplies and all manner of design materials.
What goes in NEVER leaves. This creates quite the conundrum. I have a serious case of “I might need that someday”. Should I submit to the purge? If I do I feel like I will never be able to find that ever again. Truth be told, of the countless “thats” I have picked up, pondered and set aside yet one more time, I have rarely had need for that again.
So why the image of the dining table to the left? It has been my work space for the last 8 months or so. My desk has reached full clutter impact. Oh wait, understatement, my office has reached full clutter impact.
This is how I expect my office to look. Surfaces to work upon, ample storage, stylish. What I would design for a client.
Toto, I don’t think we are in Kansas anymore. ~ Dorothy Gale
This is how my office sometimes feels. Even Dorothy Gale would be taken aback by this. Clearly this is not Kansas. Nor is it, metaphorically speaking, any type of organization. Its chaos.
I guess the first step is admitting that there is a problem. OK, yes, there is a problem. Given that this is where I proof this post one last time, tag it and publish. You’ll know where to find me. I’ll be in my office.
