Creative Ideas to Brighten up Your Office Space

When we think about brightening up an office space, we tend to think about lighting and splashes of colour. Fair enough. However, as many people find, growing space issues and clutter can turn any place into a stressful mess and become a drab interior. Have you ever noticed how bright your office looks just by clearing surfaces? Whether you work from home or in a corporate environment, there are creative and workable solutions that you can integrate into an office setting.

Colourful Canvas Art


Ok, yes, we are talking about the “splashes of colour” part. Purchasing a canvas print IS a great way to brighten up a drab office instantly. In fact, why stop at one? You could switch a print to a different one every couple of months or sooner. Who says that you have to look at the same picture time after time? Go further! With services that can take your pictures to a new level, you can have custom, lightweight artwork that can work well on your walls. These can be pictures that motivate you to work harder, such as pictures of your children, or a beautiful shot of a desired travel destination. Have a new goal? Switch up your wall art.

6 Surprising Ways To Make Your Home More Comfortable

Your home should be your sanctuary away from the outside world. It should be the place where you can kick back, relax, and release your inhibitions. If your home isn’t providing the comfort you need, then you’ll have to make some changes. Here are a few small things you can do to increase the coziness level of your abode.

Regulate Your Home’s Humidity Levels

Most people don’t even consider the humidity level in their home. However, humidity plays a large role in how comfortable you feel. Optimally, humidity levels should be between 40 and 60 percent. Any higher, and your home will feel overheated. Being below that range makes it seem too cold.

One way to regulate your home’s humidity level is to have a whole-home dehumidifier installed. You can also add in ventilation in moist rooms like bathrooms or kitchens.

Work Smarter: 12 Modern Desks Reinvent the Standard Office Surface

[ By SA Rogers in Design & Furniture & Decor. ]

The typical desk design has remained the same for centuries, but we need these surfaces to do more – like incorporate our gadgets, offer privacy in loud offices, fit into our homes, fold up to take on the go or offer proper space for our cat overlords. Maybe even all of these things at once.  These designs are more than just a flat slab on legs, adapting to 21st century standards in all sorts of different ways.

Storefront 'Souvenirs'

Yesterday I stopped by the Storefront for Art and Architecture to check out Souvenirs: New New York Icons, which is on display until November 18. The most noticeable aspect of the exhibition design is the transformation of Steven Holl and Vito Acconci's iconic facade by MOS Architects. They cut into the hinged panels and inserted small windows whose surfaces are fairly clear at an angle but are mirror-like head-on. In other words, they created canvases for selfies (no, I didn't take one).

A Few Steps Higher: 14 Unusually Artistic Modern Staircase Designs

[ By SA Rogers in Design & Fixtures & Interiors. ]

Stairs are inherently utilitarian, but some architects choose to really step up their interiors with highly sculptural designs that make you want to walk up and down a bunch of times. Cantilevered creations, floating stairs, spirals made of stone and zig-zagging graphic designs add both literal and figurative movement to these apartments, museums, offices and shops.
