We have looked at classrooms and back-to-school parties in our last few posts. Now let’s take a look at some very pretty spaces for getting the dreaded homework done. When I was a young student, I seem to remember doing my homework at the kitchen table, but now there are entire rooms devoted to that chore. I like how the desk spaces are back to back in the room below.
The beadboard ceiling and wall treatment add so much texture and detail in the next one. Be sure you also note how the cubbies are labelled – small chalkboards!
A good homework place should have great lighting. Each desk below has its own light, and there are sconces by the window seat (not to mention all the wonderful natural light pouring in from the window there.)
And a homework space should have plenty of storage. (You know I couldn’t resist that map with the gingham continents!)
Even the youngest of children can appreciate a table and chair for their work.
There is a lot to love in this one…the bright colors, the bookshelves with contrasting back, and that cute striped rug.
The next one can easily accomodate three people. Don’t you like the bookshelves built in there and those glass doors?
Storage baskets help to keep things organized.
How about a closet turned into a homework space?
All the homework supplies – from crayons to markers to scissors – are smartly stored in cans at the clever desk below.
The lamp in the next one is beautiful! Wish I could find one like that for myself.
I like the idea of the homework area being separate from but close by the kitchen like in the one shown here.
Now let’s take a look at a few commericial ones.
I loved this bedroom with its soothing neutral color scheme.
If our children had been seated side by side when doing their homework, it would have never gotten finished. It would have been too easy to just talk, play, and generally be distracted by the other siblings. So this separated work station unit would have certainly helped.
Without some kind of separation, I am sure our house would have been like this!
Do you have a favorite from all of these cute and clever spaces? (Mine was the one with the tan plaid and the black and white photography.)
I’ll have more back to school eye candy for you soon.
Hope you are having a great week!
