If you work full time like me, your office space is your home away from home. Having a space that you feel comfortable in, will help you be more productive, creative and inspired. So, I have put together some of my favourite office space inspirations for you to create in your office, to make you feel good about turning up to work everyday.
By adding a touch of gold/copper to your accessories you can easily achieve this look. This is a style that is very hot right now! Kate Spade does glam perfectly mixing it up with black and white for her signature style! For a cheaper alternative, you can use Smiggle stationary to offset the expense.Try lining a feature wall with wallpaper that has gold detailing to lift your office space and tie all elements together.
As the title suggests, Mother Earth incorporates elements of nature. Plants, wood, stone and earthy tones bring this work environment into harmony. Bringing living plants into the office space instantly brings a sense of warmth and life to a room. For those who do not possess a green thumb there are some great replica plants on the market. You can mix and match this look with industrial materials or kitsch accessories to give you a more modern and hip space.
This is probably the most fun office space that you can create. Bringing the abstract into a space, to create a fun, interesting and stimulating environment. This style can easily be paired with Mother Earth, Industrial, Recycled, Retro or Colour My World. Quirky Kitsch draws its inspiration from the bizarre. You can have clashing styles, mixed patterns or have statement pieces that leave you wondering how did they get that there!? Op shops and secondhand stores can prove the most successful places to find your quirk!!
Environmental consciousness has spawned its own style! Recycling old objects and repurposing them. This office space can be an economical design to achieve. Old tables, pallets, discarded wood, can be chopped and assembled to create desks with character. You can soften these spaces with cushions and plants to create a warm and inviting work station.
Hampton’s style is a classic style that will never date. It draws on natural light, natural elements, and vintage style. Colours that are light and breezy light grey, beige, white pastel blues and pastel pinks can all work well in these spaces. White furniture with touches of chrome give the style class and sophistication. Accessorize with natural element such as drift wood, shells and rope. This classic style is comfortable and calming for the soul.
This is a hip and simple way of design, drawing inspiration from the 60’s. Art work such as Bally prints and pop art can round out this theme. Eames replica furniture can be sourced quite readily but don’t limit yourself. Table lamps are an easy way to achieve this look and colour coding old books can give a touch of the nostalgia feel you want to achieve.
Metal, wood and factory supplies, all work well for this style. Simplicity is the key. Bold lights exposed brick walls, polished concrete, battered wooden floors, metal cabinetry all evoke the industrial feel. If you have anything from the industrial age of manufacturing, you will be on the right track to getting this very now look!
Colour My World
Pops of colour! If you love colour, this is the style for you! You can inject personality, pizzazz and absolute unadulterated joy in this space. White walls allow the colours to pop creating a bright, fun and creative space. Do not be afraid of texture and pattern to accent your colour. As you can see, colour blocking can be effective in simplifying the look.
