Inspiration: Hidden Closet Desks

I tracked down these beautiful space-saving, office-in-a-closet pictures for my sister. She has a guest room that is small and currently the office and craft room. I think moving the desk or building one in the closet would free up some space for over-night guests (that's me) or make room for more sewing projects.

A bright yellow with some frills. Love the desk chair!

This mostly white built-in style is my favorite. I love the pops of blue against the white background and classic hardwood floors.

The first three images are highly styled and from magazines. Now if I was to actually build an office-in-a-closet myself, I think it would look more like these two pictures. Above is a small cozy nook desk and below is a bright multi-purpose space. I do like the idea of keeping the closet doors or adding curtains to close off the space when used as a guest room.
