Desk space


POSSIBLERE-DESIGNS One of the first steps in redesign is viewing and selecting your favorite bedroom placement of furniture. This particular bedroom doesn’t have a large selection, but still interesting to see what fits where.


The first redesign is the one the works best with the space, although the window is slightly covered by the dresser ,the window is elevated so it wouldn’t be covered much. This re-design also allows more room around the chair area. The bedroom is positioned to get morning sun. It comes in directly on the bed area which is a nice feature! Who doesn’t love a warm, sunny bed to relax on!

2 This second design allows more floor space in the middle of the bedroom space, however the only flaw would be the bed right against the wall so that it does not cover the low window. The only change that would work to make a second redesign would be switching the bed direction to allow the space. Nothing beats spacious living, as long as that space is kept clean, it will make the room look bigger and spacious!

DECOR inspiration station this month is looking purely at your desk space. What does yours look like right now? A mess? Clean it. The benefits of having a clean desk are huge, and can have an effect in your work ethic. Benefits of having a clean desk space is huge: No visual distractions A clean desk ensures that there is nothing lying around to distract you. No visible piles of paper with unfinished tasks. Just emptiness that helps

you focus on the tasks on hand. Usable desk space The desk is empty and provides a space to put all the relevant (paper)work in an orderly fashion on the desk. This helps to get the task at hand done with the most convenience. No piles of paper are consuming space and no piles with paper tumble over and fall on the ground. Easy on the eyes = easy on the mind A large part of interior design is focused on giving spaces a specific atmosphere. The a t m o s p h e r e influences people kind of like a mirror

A peaceful space creates a peaceful atmosphere where people feel at ease. A colorful and dynamic space creates a vivid atmosphere and sparks creativity in people. A clean and tidy space creates an atmosphere without distractions and stress and supports people being focused. Appearance of great organizational skills A clean desk and a tidy office bring up the appearance of a person that has things organized smoothly. If you’re able to maintain you office in this state, you must you must have your business in perfect order.

Even if this is only the appearance (I hope not) this already is a benefit when you have people coming in your office, your boss, your subordinates or whomever.

Choosing the colour pallet

History of the colour theory The first colour wheel was invented by Sir Isaac Newton. He split white sunlight into red, orange, yellow, green, cyan, and blue beams; then he joined the two ends of the colour spectrum together to show the neutral progression of colours. A centry after Newton, Johnann Wolfgang Goethe began studying the psychological effect of colours. He noticed that blue gives a feeling of coolness and tellow has a warming effect. Goethe created a colour wheel showing the psychological effect of each colour
