The future of workspaces
Natural or Mediterranean. Adapt the Home Office to your style
Over the last number of months, there has been a lot of focus on the home, probably more so than ever before. Quite often, the home has housed activities that, until now, were usually carried out elsewhere. We are now spending more time at home and that includes our working day.
Certain activities are starting to be carried out in homes, which wasn´t the case until quite recently and, as part of that process, they have had to become reshuffled, new furniture has had to be installed or new uses have had to be given to furniture that was already in the house.
It has become evident that the ´new normal´ implies that ´staying at home´ will be a recurring measure in the future, therefore, now is the time to think about how to redistribute and redecorate homes with a specific strategy and style.
Natural style: eco-materials and textures
Imagine a Home Office inspired directly by nature. A nature-inspired style creates fresh and balanced spaces whose objective is to transmit the calm that the open air brings. Achieve this with the most representative colours such as browns, creams and greens in different tones and with eco-materials and textures such as wool, cotton or linen. Textiles take on a special importance in this decorative style where office chairs, upholstered with soft fabrics and with antibacterial properties, fit in perfectly; such as the Cron model or the Noom 50 meeting chair, that comes in earth and cream colours.
To delve even deeper into the tranquility that is characteristic of nature-inspired styles, the Home Office can be finished off with a relaxing space with soft seating such as Bend, with soft and rounded lines that, together with the Prisma table and the cream Cubic cabinet, will add the finishing touch to a nature-inspired workspace.
A Home Office that responds to this trend will have decorative elements in natural materials such as rattan, wood or glass and, of course, plants.
Mediterranean style: light and vibrant colours
The old idea that workplaces should have neutral and restrained colours is now a thing of the past. That may well be an option, but decorative styles with more striking features are not at odds with productivity and effectiveness. In fact, the bright colours and natural light, typical of Mediterranean design, are stimulating and inspiring as well as being comfortable spaces that boost the well-being of users.
If you want to give your Home Office a look that transports you to the Mediterranean coast and infects you with its energy, go for a colour combination where white is counterbalanced by touches of vibrant colours such as blue and yellow, capable of recreating the freshness of the sea and the warmth of the sun.
The Longo desk and storage unit in white can be used as an ideal base to reflect natural light, which is at the heart of the Mediterranean style, and to make accent colours stand out. The functional furniture, with light and straight lines, is perfect for this style. As a complement, a chair from the Noom 30 series; comfortable, light and in different shades, will provide the finishing touch to a Mediterranean-inspired Home Office.
Actiu´s products ensure that your home workspace fits in perfectly with the decorative style of your home or the style that you are seeking.
