It was a sunny Sunday day in Stockholm, and so we decided to take a boat trip to the south side of the city and to finally visit the showroom of Fogia. The location is absolutely stunning, and so the whole concept of having many things under the same roof. I was really positively impressed by this place, and I hope to return very soon. If you keep reading this blog post, I will tell you more about this award-winning Swedish design company and their headquarter.
In these weeks, many of us found themselves in lockdown due to the coronavirus and like me, many are working from home. Perhaps you had already a home office station and now you have to share it with your partner, or you never had it before. You may now find yourself rushing into buying furniture that you don't know if they will fit together, because this is an emergency and you weren't prepared for it. This doesn't mean that you can't still have a nice solution for your home office, something that can be durable in time. Like experts say, we don't know how long the lockdown can be and if the virus can return. Therefore, I pulled together four furniture boards with essential elements for a small, practical and cozy home office that you can quickly get into your home. The boards are in slightly different styles, all very sleek, airy and with a colour palette fairly neutral. My idea of a home office is that it should be a complement to your home, if it is located in the living room or in your bedroom, it should not be the main focus. If you are lucky to have an independent room, you can really study a colour palette that can go over to the walls, curtains and flooring as well. Find inspiration from my boards and get the look of your favourite/s one/s!
If you came across this article because you are looking for inspiration and things to entertain yourself during this Covid-19 lockdown period, you are not be alone. We are so many people around the globe, close in our homes for a uncertain amount of time. In this difficult time, it is very important to be nice to ourselves (I struggle with this too) and if we have a less productive work-from-home day or simply we just wanna dream to be somewhere else rather than at home, we must allow that to happen to make the whole situation bearable.
Therefore, I try to do what I can with my days. I had so many topics for my blog I wanted to write about, but at the moment, they all feel out of contest. This is why I decided instead to share with you what is keeping my motivation and inspiration for design in this period. I summarised here below my favourites of the best documentaries, series andbooks in architecture and interior design. Let me know in the comment if you have seen/read them too! Stay safe people, we are strong, we can do it!
