I am so pumped to have a flexible working schedule AND environment.  Frenchie and I are moving in two weeks (hopefully) and I'll be using a spare bedroom as an office as well.  I haven't really had time to think about a home office and what type of design I'm looking for but I want it to be clean, bright, organized and INSPIRATIONAL!  Not too girlie but not too sterile or masculine either.  I live in an apartment as well so I'd like to not have to build or install shelving or cabinets.  I've been looking online for some samples and have found some snaps below that I like.  A common theme that runs through these rooms is that there is a lot of white space.  I wonder if I'm drawn to that because it represents a sort of blank slate for me to start with.  Lighting is also so very key - particularly natural lighting.

Do y'all have any tips as far as a home office?  Do you feel that more "things" in your office space present more distraction or inspiration?
