Everything you need to completely transform your home office vibe
Whether we like it or not, working from home is the new reality for many of us now. In order to make the transition as seamless as possible, here are 3 ways of setting up a workspace where calm and concentration rule.
Widen the space with light colours
Nothing beats light colours to simulate a bigger size and to illuminate a room. Pure white, pale grey like Mushroom Mousse (6158-11), or a pink pastel like Vanilla Sugar (6188-11). Everything works well as long as you stay in softer tones. For an elongating and enlarging effect, opt for light, sheer drapes in the same colour tones as the walls. This refined and stripped down aesthetic is perfect for mid-century furniture with bold geometric shapes.
Mix natural textures
How nice is it to walk into your office and to feel so at ease you can really dive into the zone! If your work requires concentration, calm, and methodology, the boho-chic aesthetic could be a good fit for you. To replicate it, think colourful turkish rug, green plants, wooden furniture, and natural fiber accents. Here, the soft and earthy Sumptuous Grey (6212-21) ties the room together, for a muted ambiance.
Set up a reading nook
Nothing beats a little break and a change of scenery to recenter yourself and to reinvigorate your creative energy. A reading corner is a great way to get some fresh air while staying in the same room.
In order to delineate the space and to create the illusion of a new environment, just paint a focal point in a contrasting colour. A sage green, like the wonderful Monashee Mountains (6205-63) is perfect for this kind of project, especially since green has calming properties and symbolizes harmony.
