Closet to Compact Home Office

In order to carve out this pratical workspace, homeowners Lisa and Richard Todd had to think outside the box -- and inside the closet. They added shelving and a laminate desk that runs the length of the closet, and installed electrical and phone lines for proper lighting and computer use.

The Todds also livened up the space with vivid colors (aloe green for the walls, blue for accents and accessories), a custom framed bulletin board, and a decorative butterfly motif.
