The Home Office Makeover March 1, 2016
You don’t have to be an entrepreneur or a remote employee to work from home anymore. In fact, the majority of our clients need a dedicated space in their homes to concentrate and complete projects. In the past, the home office was often a dreaded room of bulky office chairs, tangled wires, and a defunct printer. I’m here to tell you, there’s a better and more beautiful way.
Here’s a rendering we created to showcase our take on the new home office. Whether you’re working on a big report for Monday’s meeting or the entire family is spending an evening working on different personal projects, this room is an open and distraction-free space. The overall style of the room is modern with some vintage and industrial elements. The color scheme of copper, peacock green, and gray with hints of pink delivers a sense of life and warmth to the room. The mix of fabrics, ranging from luxurious mohair to minimalist plywood, creates a comfortable and contemporary atmosphere while the gorgeous French doors are framed by a pair of center-split drapes made from organic printed linen.
The centerpiece of this home office is a large custom work table made from sustainable plywood and is perfect for kids’ homework or spreading out large work projects. By breaking away from the solitude of a single desk, we open the space up to many more options for different users. The overall vibe is creative, layered, and family-friendly. We believe the new home office is a room that creates space for exploring interests, working on passions, and feeling accomplished.
