Home Office Makeover with Expedit Shelving {IKEA}

Oh, my Lord, I can’t believe we never did a blog post about this one! You’re going to love it. It’s not quite as ambitious as the Philadelphia Magazine Designer Home Tour I featured yesterday, but just as beautiful, says me.

A very design savvy mom of two, who runs a business from home (while simultaneously doing 1,081 other things).

The challenge:

Create a totally functional work space, control the light, add color, and create space for staff and/or children to hang out.
