Beating the Workspace Blues…

Don’t know about you but an ambient office environment is essential to my work wellbeing. Give me a clutter free, aesthetically pleasing space accentuated with natural light, flowers and an inspirational memento (mine’s a small cluster of glass cubes etched with iconic memories – Eiffel Tower, Pisa, Colosseum etc – serving as reminders of past and future travel dreams) and I’ll guarantee productivity.

Whether you’ve inherited an office desk with limited opportunity to put your personal aesthetics into play or you’ve the luxury to indulge in a complete office makeover, the following are sure to inspire.

Sweet double sided desk solution, clutter behind closed doors, racks to house tools of the trade. (Decor8 – styled and photographed by Holly Marder; last image riazzoli@blogspot.com)

And my personal favorite. Adore the pouf, faux suede, walls, concrete and complementing textured print. Lean clean lines, Oh yes…I could be VERY productive here! (decophotoblog.blogspot.com)

Create visual ‘stories’

Bringing treasures together to create a visually stimulating ‘story’ never fails to give me pleasure, something to do with the old retail days no doubt, therefore finding fabulous blogs featuring people who share this passion is always exciting. This lovely collection thanks to Alex Berlin, an interior designer who makes her living creating unique, welcoming, aesthetically pleasing homes, this one hers. Muted greys, touches of pink and gold appealing to both masculine and feminine.
