Balance a wooden board across two IKEA storage cabinets, and boom—you have an instant desk with plenty of room to stash your office supplies. The one above was spotted in a home designed by Shift Interiors.
Tineke Triggs designed a room for a young pre-teen artist. Using paint as her inspiration, Triggs splattered the ceiling with color, chose a rug that looks like a watercolor painting and designed a desk to look like dripping paint. Clever storage tip: Triggs affixed mason jars to a piece of wood and hung it over the desk. Photo: Philip Harvey
