Even before my boyfriend moved in, it was clear that one of us needed to find an office space outside of the home, as neither of us has a 9 to 5 type of job. Since I spend more time at a desk than he does, I volunteered to be the one to hunt for a space and let him have the "office" in the bedroom.
I was extremely lucky to find a listing for an office share on Craigslist that turned out to have been posted by acquaintances of ours. At the beginning of June, I moved my computer, my files and my other office-like items into the new space, and I now happily commute four blocks to my shared office in a Brooklyn brownstone. Above is a quick snap of my desk, I didn't style it or Photoshop out the cords, so you're seeing it in all of its day-to-day glory.
And yes, I sit in that hard wood chair every day and most of the time, I'm perfectly comfortable. Perhaps one day a fancy Herman Miller chair will be in the budget.
