For many today, commuting to work means walking over to the part of your home designated for that purpose. See how this small-space apartment doubles as a workspace, yet makes uncompromising room for function, focus and flair.
Storage worthy of a video-call background
Spacious shelving is great – especially when it looks great, too. Mixing in boxes of different shapes and patterns adds an eye-catching dimension. Balance paperwork and magazine files with personal odds and ends. Conversation pieces to keep the work meeting going, or just set the mood after hours.
Balancing the hard and oh-so soft aspects of the day
In a small home, creating defined zones is a good way to add a sense of more space. Rugs help. Like here, where colours harmonise while dot patterns clash against straight-line tiles. Apply freely to work domain, coffee corner, cuddle zone, and so on.
Having your home and work in the same limited space can become a bit static. To enhance the feeling of two separate spaces – including a relaxing lunch corner – the rooms have been painted in starkly different, yet harmonising hues.
The shapes of coffee breaks
Finding serenity two paces away from your desk can be a challenge. To ease the transition, this snack-and-relax corner is defined by the smooth, rounded lines of wood and textiles. The mild contrast against the surrounding geometry helps to create a soothing bubble between work sessions.
