Of all of the rooms in a home I glean the most inspiration from, it’s the office. Perhaps it’s my love for marrying form and function (and truly, you can’t get much more functional and productive than in an office space, right?). Still, I’m endlessly intrigued by the way creatives dress up a drab office environment and transform it into an inspired, worthy workspace. Take fashion designer Reed Krakoff’s NYC office, for example…
I’ve always been a huge fan of FLOR tiles, ever since my husband and I outfitted our Los Angeles with House Pet in an attempt to create an impromptu office space. And then, we welcomed two dogs into our home, making FLOR all the more functional for the many messes our four-legged friends bring with us. Yet it wasn’t until I became a mother that I realized the beauty of FLOR. A soft, ever-so-washable and buildable rug – suitable for any space from playrooms and offices and everywhere between? I now consider these tiles to be the #1 essential tool for every baby-proofer’s kit. In fact, I recently decked out our baby-proofed office in one of FLOR’s latest designs – Reoriented. Here’s the reveal!:
Whoever said print was dead hasn’t visited ad agency Oktavilla’s recent office makeover in Stockholm. Designed by Elding Oscarson, the surprising office is lined with hundreds of recycled periodicals from the agency, littering the walls with color, texture and typography…
Space seems to be a hot topic for every city dweller, but what if you made the most of every square inch of your home? In the above image, this smart homeowner transformed a narrow space into a fully functional office nook. With floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and a custom-built desk, any hallway can become the perfect working spot to pay bills, catch up on correspondence and keep your household organized.
Get to work, friends!
