Inspiration Home Office
We live and we work.
It’s a difficult task to separate these two when you work from home. Those of you who work from a home office know exactly what I mean. As soon as you live your working space and head off to the kitchen for a usual 10 minutes morning tea break, suddenly hundreds of things pop in the way. There is a table to be cleaned after a family breakfast, washing needs doing, garden needs water, shopping, cooking, sorting 100 other things…. Grrrr, distracting.
What works best is to have a routine, the same routine as if you were in a regular office. Early wake up, tea and lunch breaks, visit to a Post Office and what’s most important that I still have to learn – having regular work hours means finishing at a ‘normal’ hour (not midnight or 3am)
Create a space where you can switch on creatively and switch off from the rest of the space. Use natural light, texture and a couple of items that will inspire you. Space needs to be triggering your imagination constantly. Do not clutter the space. Small clutter is ok, but otherwise clutter is distracting, frustrating and mind consuming – it will take your energy away from the big things.
So good luck. You can find some great sources of inspiration on a couple of great blogs like Australian The Design Files, Desire to Inspire and of course the immortal IKEA.
