Good morning friends. Today I want to take a look at five different home office ideas. Each of these set ups has something special going for it — I’d love to know which one is your favorite (and why)!

Corner Office

Sweet corner office space. | japanesetrash.com

Here’s a tidy corner office space that looks like it’s a great place to concentrate and get work done.

Tailored Table

Just enough room to get things done. | japanesetrash.com

This nicely appointed table area has just the right amount of work space and can be set up in almost any room.

Room With a View

Could you work surrounded by windows? | japanesetrash.com

I don’t know if I could work surrounded by all those windows, but the room itself is amazing.

Artistic License

An art lover's home office. | japanesetrash.com

Simple but with a sense of luxury due to all of that wonderful art. I’m intrigued by the chair, too.

In the Library

Here's a workspace I could fall in love with. | japanesetrash.com

This is easily my favorite of them all; it just looks like a place where a lot could be accomplished.

When we last saw Jeffrey Alan Marks, the LA-based interior designer, he was hard at work remodeling the shower at his gym on the Bravo TV show, “Million Dollar Decorators”. That’s been a while–over three years, actually, which is a bit of a surprise to me–so I thought I’d revisit his work and feature some of my favorites.

The Man: JAM

LA-based interior designer, Jeffrey Alan Marks--aka JAM. | japanesetrash.com

Marks likes to refer to himself by his initials, JAM, and tends to look as cool and composed as one of his interiors. On the show, he’s portrayed as bit more frayed at the edges than this photo would have you think.

Malibu

This Malibu living room is a treat for the senses. | japanesetrash.com

This living room is full of great pieces–I love every single one of them. At first glance, the long sofa against the back wall appears to be half navy and half white; I wish it was.

Santa Monica Canyon

The dining and kitchen area of JAM & Ross Cassidy's home. | japanesetrash.com

JAM and his partner, Ross Cassidy, share this home–famous for having a row boat attached upside-down to the bedroom ceiling. This homey eat-in kitchen is appealing.

Coronado

Love the clean lines and terrific materials of this kitchen. | japanesetrash.com

I’m all about the clean lines and sleek contemporary materials of this kitchen. Love the huge window by the sink, too.

Sonoma

Texture. Color. Want. | japanesetrash.com

It only takes a few well-chosen pieces at the right scale to create a stunning space. | japanesetrash.com

These spaces do so much with very few pieces–just the right ones in the right scale and combination and it’s perfect.

Santa Monica

Beautiful wood, stone, and metallics in this kitchen. | japanesetrash.com

Beautiful wood, stone, and metallics make this kitchen terrific.

I decided I wanted to keep going with the idea of Industrial Chic this week and started doing some googling just to see what’s out there I might need to become aware of. Who knew Restoration Hardware had taken the concept of industrial chic so much to heart? It’s been a few years since I’ve been in one of their stores, and I have to say what I’m seeing online is making me want to go in for a visit some time soon.

I’m not going to pretend that I think what Restoration Hardware is doing is superfantastic, but I do think for a mass market furniture purveyor, they are showing a predilection for pushing the envelope. And some of the designs in their online look books are worth a double take. Here are some of my favorites, in no particular order:

Campaign trunk style bar from Restoration Hardware. | japanesetrash.com

I'm so pleasantly surprised by the industrial chic pieces I'm seeing from Restoration Hardware. | japanesetrash.com

Another GLAMasculine living room from Restoration Hardware. | japanesetrash.com

For me, this space is all about that chandelier--but the rest of the pieces are nice, too. | japanesetrash.com

Another offering from Restoration Hardware that has the campaign trunk influence. | japanesetrash.com
