Anne Sage found the makings of a corner home office on Krrb.

The goal was simple — to carve out a workspace from an unused corner of her gorgeous living room. Using Krrb, Anne Sage of The City Sage and freelance art director, stylist, and producer with recent clients that include Target and Anthropologie, set out to do just that. With her design savvy and choosing only what was hyperlocal to her, Anne was able to pull together a sleek home office that doesn’t feel too formal or impersonal. Since the Apartment Therapy Sweepstakes has been extended to October 15, you have a little more time to sign up for the contest (as if you haven’t already) and upgrade your home with $1000 Sweepstake prize.

Be sure to check out the dedicated Pinterest board of Anne’s finds for a workspace that feels right at home for under $1000
