Dining Rooms Turned into Home Offices

Lately, I've been seeing this quite a bit where people are turning their dining rooms into home offices.  It makes sense if you have the space and don't need a formal dining room.  My friend is currently considering doing something like this.  And, if you follow Emily A. Clark, she did the same thing, see here.  The other day, I hopped on over to Emily Henderson's amazing blog and it looks as if she has done it too.   I couldn't believe the transformation, see below.

Dining Room - Before

Dining Room - After - Emily Henderson's New Office

I tell you, Emily, knows how to do blue (SW Loyal Blue - flat) and green.  I love the saturated colors and how moody the room feels.  

So layered, so vintage, so timeless.

She actually installed Ikea flooring over the existing dining room floor - I think it looks great.  To see more of her transformation, go here

I'm telling you these recently turned dining rooms into home offices have me convinced!  How about you?


  1. Don't have a dining room, but sounds like a great idea.

  2. It really makes sense - we should use rooms as we need them and not get stuck thinking they have to be used a certain way. I am in the process of moving a dining room into a living room space and turning the existing dining room into a casual sitting room. I love what Emily did (actually love most everything she does!) and the room looks so much wider and pulled together as an office!
