After two years of renting small office spaces, we have decided to move into a home office! With a room much bigger than our previous rental spaces, we are buzzing with excitement over the change and what we can do with this new empty canvas.
We know what we want to have in our new studio. Separate working areas, a meeting table, and ample storage to keep our supplies. With all these in mind, we have been perusing Pinterest for more inspiration and ideas. Here are some pins that we love!
(L) Build-in cabinetry is really expensive, so top open-shelving with short floor cupboards in the same colour would be more cost-friendly while still appearing like a uniformed piece.
(R) We love the versatility of pegboards and how easy it would be to rearrange shelves and storage accessories. Just a mental note to always keep it neat!
(L) A packaging counter would be a dream come true. We love the idea of a station dedicated to fulfilling orders and packing our goods. Imagine how convenient and organised it would be to have all the required tools in the same place!
(R) Wouldn't it be nice to have a cosy corner in the office to display our current reads and favourite art prints? We can imagine having casual meetings and quiet time-outs here!
(L) The chest of drawers in this pin is gorgeous and would be great for filing away all our art prints, original pieces, and sketches!
(R) The layout of this home office allows for personal work spaces and a large spacious meeting table that can accommodate additional seats comfortably. We like how the bulk of the working area fits into one side of the room, thus leaving enough breathing and living space.
(L) How cool would it be to display all our art prints like this?
(R) Seriously considering this DIY method of using washi tape to construct a big shared calendar on the wall. It adds colour while being totally functional!
We can't wait to get started on styling our new space. Don't worry, we will definitely be updating the blog with the whole process!
With Love, Min+Jia.
