I thought it would be lovely to provide some decor inspiration to get your home ready for Summer if you are working from home.
Here are my top 5 tips for updating the workspace.1. Declutter
Firstly, for those having to stay home, more than ever, this is the opportunity to declutter.
Admittedly, there is nowhere to dump the stuff, but bagging things away ready to go when the lockdown ends will make life so much easier.2. Gallery wall refresh
Art prints and frames are still easily available to purchase online and be delivered during this Coronavirus lockdown. In fact, I have done several gallery wall refreshes during my weekends off, for example, my hallway above.You don’t have to spend a bomb to do this. I’ve mainly used old prints that I’ve had in storage and added one or two new ones.
The “Magnifique” print is new, and from Gayle Mansfield.3. Accessorize your desk.
After a declutter and wipe down, I decided to restyle my desk with a new lamp.
I absolutely adore the elegance of my new Hector 30 lamp from Original BTC, with its classic white bone China shade and brass fittings.4. New floor coverings
No floor is complete without a bright and colourful rug to usher in the Summer.
As this is hay fever season, you may want to consider a rug that can be easily washed or wiped down.
I have always loved the plastic rugs from pappelina. In fact, I still have the ones I bought from more than 10 years ago.
These aren’t single use plastic products. They are beautiful designs that last a lifetime.
They feel so luxurious and soft to step on, the colours stay vibrant even after many years, and they are so easy to clean too.
These 2 pretty rugs from pappelina are called Piglet ( pink) and Vera ( turquoise).5.Pastel cushions
These pastel cushions in the shape of shells are from Moi Mili. Aren’t they simply divine?They match the aesthetic of my workspace so well.The cushions are super plump soft and definitely huggable.
So, those were my 5 simple tips on how to get your workspace ready for Summer if you are working from home. Hope you’ve enjoyed it.
Finally, wishing you a wonderful week ahead and stay safe.
