Putting The Home In Your Home Office
Now that we have the nitty-gritty sorted, let’s move on to the fun stuff. This is the part where you get to style your space and add spade loads of personality and pizzazz to an area that would otherwise be all business and no pleasure.
Do you tend sit at your desk, staring at a bare wall getting bored to tears while waiting for motivation to strike? We have just the cure to help you curate a welcoming work environment that encourages productivity. A well-chosen piece of artwork will add colour and character to your room, inspiring creativity and adding excitement to the work day. The tongue-in-cheek playfulness of our ‘Fancy Pants’ Framed Print with gold calligraphy on a baby blue background is an easy way to introduce a touch levity to your day. The ‘Cross’ Framed Print features effervescent swirls in sherbet shades that’s great eye candy for overworked eyes. If you’re after a more sophisticated somethin’ somethin’, look no further than our moody broody ‘Ink Black II’ Framed Print.
Create a cheerful collage of your treasured family snaps together with your bucket-list of holiday destinations. Punctuate with some uplifting quotes by your favourite famous personalities such as actors, authors, comedians and fashion gurus. Now there’s a mood board to gear you for success!
Avoid the messy mayhem that comes with piles of paperwork. Think outside the box and simply bin it! Okay – we don’t mean throw it in the trash! Roll into neatly labelled bundles or compact little packs and place in a trendy basket or hamper that can be tucked away under your table until it’s needed. Choose from our ‘Quad’ Hamper or the Robert Gordon ‘Lattice’ Basket that comes in a set of 3 as well as the ‘Copper’ Wire Basket. These are a stylish alternative to a clunky filing cabinet.
As visual creatures we perform better if we can see our work broken down into manageable bite sized chunks. Don’t let daunting mountains of paperwork weigh you down. Create a nifty organising system by labelling bins and baskets as: to action, to file, to shred, and once those tasks are completed file away in handy hampers or cute boxes labelled as: finance, taxes, bills, superannuation, health and so on.
Every workstation needs a lamp and our eclectic collection puts the fun in this functional must-have. The charming ‘Antique Cole’ Table Lamp in brass with a distressed finish is the top choice for voracious vintage hunters while our ‘Spotty’ Desk Light in a pastel palette is suitable for retro revival enthusiasts. If you prefer something a little more modern, look no further than our ‘Kopa’ Table Lamp. With a charismatic copper shade and a subdued white base, it gracefully balances business with bling.
Sometimes the brightest bulb isn’t always right for the job. Choosing correct lighting is crucial for your concentration levels. Dim lighting can strain your sight and an overly bright bulb can dry your eyes out. While incandescent bulbs are common for household use, LED may be more suitable for a table lamp as it provides a direct and focused light source. Also, test out a few different positions for your new lamp in order to avoid irritating reflections and shadows.
