At some time in your life I'm sure you have had this very romantic idea of working from home. We've all said "I'll be SO productive" whilst imaging yourself typing furiously in your fluffy slippers, rising only to brew a quick herbal tea before retuning to make phone calls and file things away in the cabinet next to your scented candle. We have complied a little 'how to' for creating the very space to make the dream a reality.
Firstly to the desk. Function here is important, although we would suggest sticking to neutral organic colours such as wood, white or dark grey / black to allow for colour in other places.
Wooden tables are sturdy and work well with light floors and walls.
White tables are crisp and clean and work better with darker floors or walls and make the space appear bigger.
Collaging artwork above your desk is the perfect way to ensure you are always inspired. If your eye happens to wander away from your task, at least it will have something beautiful to gaze upon! We suggest using colourful wasabi tape to attach magazine clippings.
Add a pop of block colour with a chair, notice board, or lots of functional accessories.
And lastly, if you really want to add some magic to a shared workspace, you can't go past a colourful throw acting as a curtain or some fun feature fairy lights!
