The Home Office Book explores all aspects of creating a workable, comfortable, and stylish office at home. A rich source of ideas, information, and design solutions, The Home Office Book also comes at a timely moment, as one in five Americans works from home today.

Author Donna Paul, a contributing editor to Metropolitan Home, brings her experience and expertise to an analysis of forty-five home offices around the country, looking at how and why they work. These locations offer practical, innovative possibilities for storage, lighting, seating, work surfaces, entrances, reception areas, and much more. Whether the office is tucked into the corner of a living room, installed in a second bedroom, or housed in a converted garage, The Home Office Book suggests ingenious ways to work with the space available. Some of the home offices are designed with one user in mind; others are to be shared with a mate or associate. Many of the offices must perform double duty, sliding out of sight or converting when needed into guest quarters, dining rooms, or additional living spaces.

The more than 250 color photographs--showing entire rooms as well as wonderful details--offer practical and creative design ideas. With its extensive source listing, The Home Office Book will be an invaluable resource for anyone who dreams of going into business at home.
