Press Reset: How to Design an Inspiring Workspace at Home
How to Design an Inspiring Workspace
A well-thought-out setup that looks good and does good.
If you work from home regularly, crafting a workspace with purpose will make all the difference in how you approach your projects. Here are a few ways you can put a mindful stamp on your workspace to keep you forever inspired.
Designate a specific work zone
Don't have an extra room to make a home office? With a little creativity, even the smallest space can be turned into a functional study nook. Pick a spot with natural light and consider a slimline desk and shelves on the walls to reduce floor space.
When it comes to choosing a seat, the Red Navy Chair by Emeco brings the right amount of sustainable style and enduring comfort thanks to its ergonomically molded seat. Made from recycled PET, this iconic stool is light but impactful.
Fulfill your five senses
Make your workspace a place where you love to spend time by infusing it with your favorite colors and uplifting vibes. Surround yourself with meaningful items that ‘spark joy’ in the words of Marie Kondo — for instance, an inspirational board, a soft rug, or even scented candles.
Stock your shelves with authors that inspire you or creativity-inducing books to help you overcome those dreaded lulls.
Organize your workspace intentionally
Whether you’re drawn to minimalism or can’t live without a little ‘creative clutter’, choose a set up that fits your natural workflow. Limit your workspace to the items you use most — and if they don’t serve a purpose, put them away!
Bring the outdoors in
The perks of having houseplants go beyond aesthetics. Indeed, living plants are known to improve productivity, reduce stress, and boost your mood. Introducing greenery will literally breathe new life into your working space!
Plan for tea breaks
There’s nothing like a warm cup of tea to soothe your mind and help you focus (not to mention the countless health benefits associated with drinking tea). So keep your favorite tea varieties handy to accompany you through the day.
Designed in elegant terracotta, the Edge Tea Pot by Skagerak will preserve the full flavor of your tea and with care, will last a lifetime. Team it up with a matching Edge Mug and savor the moment as you sip your brew of choice.
