My Scandinavian Home Office + New Book Art

July 23, 2014

One of the things I missed dearly while in Greece was my home office. 

It is not just because of its practical value (having all of your things exactly where you want them, your comfy chairs etc) but also because of its design value. 

While I am more than happy some times to take my laptop and work from the couch, most of the times I prefer my comfy chair and my home office set up. I work a lot of hours on my computer so I desperately need to feel comfortable. It is very important to me that visually my space is as pleasant as I can make it as is directly translates into feeling better for longer periods of time while I am designing. I want where I work to be a place where I look forward being, not feeling indifferent towards it or worse trying to avoid it. 

Trust me if your work space feels like a place you want to be, not only you will look forward to working but most importantly it might not feel as work at all. So get your inspiration going and start even today designing and re imagining where you spend so many hours of your day.

I am constantly drawing inspiration from my pinterest board HOME▲OFFICE and I keep adding daily to it so feel free to follow!

One of the things I have been wanting to do for the longest of time was create my own book art.

I started simple by just folding together all the pages of an old book and cut the exterior. I was surprised at how easy it was, it barely took me half an hour and I love how it looks on my office desk. I am looking forward of using it as a way to store various papers that usually don’t have a specific place on my desk and I hate seeing them just lying around. I won’t provide a tutorial as it’s fairly easy to do it (just fold each page into a triangle and keep repeating) but I can tell you there are some very complicated patters out there for those that want to try some.
