Working from home
CREATING A CONTEMPORARY GARDEN STUDIO USING NATURE FOR INSPIRATION
Nestled in a corner of the garden, this south facing cedar clad room drank in all the suns rays and provided a beautiful light filled space to create a working office.
The brief outlined a need for this studio to be inviting for clients; somewhere they could visit and enjoy the design experience alongside the designer. It was important that this room could function as a creative space, offering a light and bright environment to work in all the while maintaining a calm feel without too many distractions.
I chose a chalky white backdrop giving a blank canvas which could then be built on layer by layer. I then introduced texture through the office unit doors and oiled oak work surfaces for a soft matt finish.
The flooring was practical and neutral, not taking away from all the new design concepts, which would be created in this studio space.
Picture ledges were fixed to the back wall, offering a flexible space to visualize each project and present to clients when they visited.
Two oak framed chairs provide the relaxed seating area along with delicate mint green accents to brighten the overall design. Plants and greenery were introduced in varying height to help this room connect to the garden maintaining a natural and restful space encouraging creativity.
