    This is my home office. Rack in the corner, 39x72 desk with a media center behind. I work mostly at the office but it's nice to have a dedicated spot at home too. I also organize and edit my photos here. I still have to add photos to the frames...poor form, I know.

    The brown strip on the wall was a built-in for an old CRT TV. I cut a piece of MDF to size, wrapped it in dark burlap and secured it to wall. This created a flat, accented wall to hang a TV on. One section of a room divider accents it further down the middle.

      Where did you get the desk?

      what kind of lights are you using? I see at least two, one in the chair and the other on the book shelf.

      @Dumbwhiteducks, it's actually a Dining Room table. I was looking for a Parsons desk, this was as close as I could find and I love it. I got it from, i was leary of buying a table unseen, but It really worked out great. Fast shipping too.

      @beej2001 I'm using two 430EX Flashes with a wireless ST-E2 Trigger. Great observation on the flash in the chair, that's exactly where it was! Just the two 430EXs and natural light.

      Given that you're working in close proximity to the rack in a fairly open area, how do you find the noise level? I've been thinking of putting my development machines in a similar setup, so I figured I'd ask if you ran into this at all.

      This looks fabulous, by the way.

      I'm pretty sensative to noise levels so yes, I know exactly what you're talking about. The machines themselves are pretty quiet, there's no real issue with that. The Linksys switch, however, has some pretty loud fans. To compensate, I put a piece of 2" sound absorbant insulation behind the rack and then cut a piece of clear plexi to go on the inside of the front door. This does inhibit air flow, but the rack interior stays about 86 degrees, which, for me, is acceptable.

      With all that, the sound level is pretty minimal, it's comparable to my projector which is rated at 24DB.
