What’s your home office like? Perhaps calling it a home office is laughable because you’re currently working from a tiny corner of your studio apartment. Or, perhaps you do have a dedicated room for working in. Either way, the place we create for ourselves to work in is really important – and, ultimately, it needs to inspire us to deliver our best work and creativity. Naturally, I lean towards bright and vibrant schemes when looking for home office inspiration and I’m currently pulling my workspace together; it’s based on the same colours as this home office scheme but uses them in a very different way (more on that soon!). This energising yellow and pink home office is a clever design move because it echoes the colour scheme of the room seen through the archway beside it. The living room has been decorating with a pastel palette of candy colours such as ice cream pink and primrose yellow. However, in the foreground we see the home office, which references the colours of the main space but flips the shades to their most saturated state. This shift in shade zones this part of the space as a new area that has a different function, but it doesn’t make the open plan space feel disjointed because the colours remain from the same palette. It’s an inspiring example of how colour can be used to visually create rooms within rooms and gets a big thumbs up from Mr. B! What do you think of this palette, folks?
