No matter your job, there is something truly special about the month of September. Perhaps it’s because of the change in season, or the memories of starting school, but whatever the reasoning, there is something exciting that awakens during this time. Projects get started, post-summer meet-ups happen, and work becomes a priority again. New beginnings emerge, while the golden autumn sun still shines.
If you’re working on making this September count, we’ve got your back. To propel you into the best, productive stretch of your life, we’ll be transforming your home studio together. Because, in our eyes, the first step to make amazing things happen is to create a space that enables great ideas to float to the top.
In this article, we’ll list some ways you can make your home studio or workspace a fabulous and relaxing place to create and innovate. Rather than focusing on the classic ergonomics considerations – which are super important, don’t get us wrong – we’ll be looking at subtle changes that scream, or rather, softly whisper, “chic”. If you have any other office space ideas, let us know – we love hearing from you!
01. Ditch the white paint and go for calming colours – bespoke to you
The idea that white is the only option for a calm and peaceful space is an absolute fallacy. What is completely relaxing to you can be strident to someone else, so choose colours that feel in accordance with your mental wellness. If you don’t know what that means for you, you can try out different Zoom backgrounds and figure out which one feels most comfortable to you. If you work better via references, the colours below are some of our favourites for studios. Let yourself be guided by your own likes – lean into your taste to create a productive space. The only rule of thumb is to avoid vibrant, cheery colours – they can be heavy on the eyes, so beware!
