In the home of Marco and Stephanie, one corner of the living room is used as a work and study area. A wooden divider separates the space from the rest of the home but it doesn’t provide enough privacy, making it harder for the family to concentrate on tasks and assignments. There was also not enough storage options for books, documents, and supplies.

To address these concerns, interior designer Vera Villarosa installed bookshelves and added an L-shaped desk system by Elfa from Howards Storage World that can accommodate two people. She also furnished the space with bins and organizers, small cork boards, and small decorative items like photo frames that add a personal touch to the area.
