Working from home is perfect for me, I get to work on my laptop anywhere around the house, decorate the place in my Scandi style and hang out with Hansel. I have three areas of the house where I like to work, with a cup of coffee, notepad and my laptop. These areas are, the office (of course), my bedroom for when I need rest but still need to get work done and on the sofa next to the window.
As you already know, I’m a Scandinavian design lover and with this passion of hunting for beautiful Scandi products, I like to create that style at home too. This laid back style is calming and just what I need when life gets a little too chaotic.
Here’s a little insight into my three cosy corners of the house where I like to work.
The fact that I have to spend a lot of time resting because of my post brain op noggin is quite annoying, so I often bring the laptop to bed. I keep the space nice and simple so it’s relaxing enough for me to rest but also calm so that I can work.
The bedroom is in the middle of being re-organised but this corner is starting to look good (I can never make my mind up), I’m in love with my table lamp from Menu, it’s dimmable and gives a relaxing light. My ‘For Rest’ print by One Must Dash is a reminder that I need rest but it’s beautifully bleak too, I adore it.
Keeping the bedroom stylish and minimal I prefer to have a muted colour tone, introducing greenery as a touch a colour and to bring a bit of life to the space.
This simple Habitat sofa is so comfortable, I snuggle in this corner with my Donna Wilson Blanket, it’s a perfect place to read and look onto the garden. I’ve just got this Ikea plant pot designed by Ilsa Crawford, it’s dreamy! , my plant doesn’t quite fit in it but I’ll sort that out later. Having this plant next to the window feel like I’m bringing the outdoors, in. Then I don’t feel so guilty working when it’s nice outside.
Hansel finds it soooo relaxing too, haha. I made him this scratching post out of cardboard boxes, I like to think that it’s saved the sofa from complete destruction.
I’m so lucky to have an office/studio at home. The space is nice and bright with painted floorboards and white walls. My main purchase for this room was the HAY ‘About a chair‘ which I got upholstered inside with Kvadrat fabric! Hansel and I often fight for this seat!
Once I set the laptop up here, the serious work happens, or so I like to think!
Making a mood board on the wall is always fun, I saved my favourite flyers from my design trips, plus an iron on cat patch coz it looks like Hansel.
So there we are, a little tour around my home and the three cosy corners where I like to work. How would you create your style in your work place?
