Create a Workspace Ripe With Creativity
A customer wrote to us the other day for help with an appealing problem. She had stumbled upon a fabulous vintage desk at her local flea market, but after bringing it home, wasn't sure how integrate it into her space. "It just looks so stark," she said. "How do I make this work?"
"I never design a building before I’ve seen the site
and met the people who will be using it."
- Frank Lloyd Wright
We proceeded to show her how adding a few stylish accents can soften the look and create an inviting and productive space. Start with a few desktop items with the same vintage (or vintage-inspired) feel. In this case, we opted for a vintage typewriter and a retro-style clock. Then add a few subtle pops of color, like a cheerful succulent planter, or an adjacent bookshelf. Complete the look with a modern chair, and you'll have a space that exudes lived-in charm. Go ahead and try this in your own office, and watch the creativity soar.
