New York City Inspired Office Space | Hello Monday!

I’ve always loved VISI magazine – the quirky design pieces, unique homes and style ideas are really innovative and original, always a place for inspiration! And I’ve ALWAYS loved New York City – it’s one of my favourite places and I’m aching to go back and show it off to my husband… so when I found this post on VISI, I just had to re-share it.

Megan Fasanelli of Meg Vaun Interiors was featured in the magazine and asked by her client to turn a bland boring office into an inspirational space that reflected the trendy and quirky elements of New York. And she did! Love the colour combinations of black, white and yellow – really showcasing the yellow taxis so prevalent in the city – and the clever lighting, wallpapering and reupholstered furniture just adds a classic touch. Enjoy the pics!

Beautiful WorkStations | Creative Spaces to Work, Plan & Think

If you work from home, have a desk you work from on the weekends or evenings, or simply enjoy having your own space to think, create, plan and graft from – then this post from The Good Girls Guide is definitely for you!

A workstation that calls you to it rather than frightens you off is a good workstation – so throw away your unorganised filing system, sell your outdated oversized computer monitor and invest in a good desk, some great storage and a pinboard or something for inspiration.

The best desks are often those with a clear, uncluttered surface; just your computer and what you’re working on should grace your desktop. A pinboard or moodboard is also an excellent way of displaying your ideas, photos and diagrams in what can only be described as ordered chaos.

Make sure your workstation is in a quiet area in your house: a spare bedroom, a little nook somewhere or even pulled out of your cupboard! Remember to keep yourself happy with what gets you into work-mode: the smell of coffee, soft jazz music in the background, the tinkle of a chime…

And then, it’s down to work! Check out our top inspirational workstations to keep your mind ticking, your heart happy and your soul alive:
