This Is How to Transform a Wall Recess Into a Killer Home Office

Who: Emily Henderson, interior designer

Where: Los Angeles, California

Why we love this pic: This wall recess-turned-office nook is so effective that it could be its own room. The raw wood wall defines the space as its own while adding homespun charm and character, as the red sconces punctuate it with a playful splash of color. Then there's the marble desktop, elevating the design with a layer of luxury while the eclectic gallery wall adds plenty of whimsy and intrigue.

The takeaway: You don't need an entire room to create a killer home office.
