One of my goals for this fall and winter is to create a nice home office setup. I have a nice little nook where I usually work with an old Ikea desk and my LG 24in 4k monitor. I want to change things a bit. I am looking for something minimalist but not cold and stark. The color is white but a touch of wood might be nice. The ultimate goal is to build my own desk.
