masculine office

Now that we have a desk for Mike’s new office, it has me thinking about how the rest of the office might look.
I definitely think the desk needs to be refinished a dark wood tone.  No paint.  And I’d looove to put in some dark gray built-ins along the back wall of the office where there is a second desk top built into the center of the built-ins.  That way he can have his multiple computer screens at the back desk with the computer stashed out of sight in a vented cabinet, and the wood desk would be a clean and open workspace up front.
This is going to be his space alone.  It needs to have a full on masculine feel to it.

And who wouldn’t want a super bad ass library ladder.  Pretty sure I’m gonna have to find a way to make that happen.

Ok, so I say it’s going to be his space alone.  But I’m pretty sure I’ll be stealing it while he’s away.  Especially if it has one of those cool ladders.  I won’t be able to contain myself.
I’m so ready for him to have an office he can really use.  While we have one in the house we’re renting, there is zip, zero, zilch storage.  All the junk laying around forces him to spread out on our dining room table to work.  Ready, ready, ready to be done with that.
Do you have a dedicated office in your homes?  Do you like them feminine, masculine, or a mix of both?

    Let us know if you find a way to DIY a library ladder. When I priced them for my new house, they were ridiculously expensive because the rail is custom made for your wall. Then I ended up using 2 vintage hutches in my pantry, instead of tall bookcases/shelves, so I didn't need ladder anyway. Plus I was slightly concerned the wheels would wear the hardwood floors. Anyway, I'm sure there is way to DIY it and I'd love to read about it.

    Those are all awesome.
    When The Dad first moved in, as a surprise birthday present, I converted my extra bedroom into an office for him. My sister came over and we had two days to bust it out on the down low. Shortly after, we got married, had a baby, and his office turned into a nursery. Poor guy. I'd love to have the space for a unisex office. "Someday."

    Every space turns into our space, right?! 🙂 I love your plans and your inspiration pictures are fab!
