I don’t think I can get much work done with the spectacular forested views or ocean views just outside my home office window. Writing a romantic poem or a novel? Maybe. But doing my taxes? No way. I would have to opt for the workspace overlooking the wall and not the view. Still, do I wish I have a great view? Of course. Check out these dream home office designs of the lucky ones who enjoy amazing views.
