One of the most frustrating spots in our home is a corner outside our bedroom. It’s kinda in the living room yet feels like it’s part of the dining room. It’s weird. It is the perfect spot for a Christmas tree though, see below. The problem is the tree is only there two months out of the year.
The corner is four by four feet, which is a decent size spot. I’ve tried nearly a dozen things, and none of them were right. It’s just far enough from the seating area that it feels separate. I’ve included a couple of poor photos to demonstrate. Sometimes you just have to move pieces around to see if there is any hope!
I obviously didn’t like those options. I thought I’d get your thoughts on my latest idea. Ryan and I both work from home off and on. I retreat to my office, but Ryan doesn’t use his office. He prefers the dining space for several reasons. A laptop on the table isn’t ideal. I got to thinking that I could turn this odd corner into a miniature office for him. I found some great ideas on Pinterest.
I really like this idea for the space. I would have glass door inserts though, because I’d want to show off some pretty art pieces. What do you think? Would this look right? Does it make sense? I look forward to your responses, and I’ll keep you posted on what I decide.
