Offices from Martha Stewart Living

I think Martha does a lot of things right. One thing that I am particularly nutty for are Martha and her editorial staff’s organizational offerings, specifically in the office.  Here are some images of offices that have graced the pages of past issues of Martha Stewart Living. 

Using various hues of chalkboard paint, painter’s tape and a lot of patience, this chalkboard calendar was created

Using dressed up clipboards, a twist on the bulletin board was created.

Easy shelves, gray boxes to hide the mess and a Parsons desk equals visual perfection

More tonal action with a color called Sesame, personal mementos on the desk that make you happy or inspire you

A pattern emerges…It seems that a continuous color combo and storage boxes are the key

Have a small space…how about a hidden office behind sliding doors

The office at the Lily Pond house, fitted in a converted mudroom

If you don’t like the file storage options out there and they can be fairly monotonous, how about fashioning one out of an old trunk

  • Love the chalk board calendar, the clip boards are a fun idea, but the box idea, while it looks really cool and is seen a lot in magazines, may be bit cumbersome when you really needs something. Too many steps for me but then again maybe I’m just a bit lazy :-)

  • Any ideas for where to get the storage boxes (online resources?)- good quality, reasonable price and design cool colors? I need them for my past collections of Domino/Living Etc./Dwell magazines plus all my stuff…..

  • Tricia-thats a good point about the boxes. I think the trunk thing is a pipe dream but I know theres some serious DIY-ers out there who could handle it.

  • And oh that desk at the Lily Pond house looks like a farmhouse table, there is a small table with a soapstone top just like that at Karen’s Attic right now! Would be freakin’ fabulous
