Homes & Gardens – 5 design tips to steal from this Victorian-inspired, industrial kitchen renovation

We love taking ideas from home renovation articles, and this kitchen design by The Main Company stood out to us this week in this article by Homes & Gardens. We love the clever way it draws inspiration from the building’s Victorian heritage by taking on an industrial revolution theme.

One of the ways The Main Company incorporated the industrial theme was by focusing on raw materials such as corrugated iron, Victorian brick and aged brass. These materials were then partnered with exposed piping so that the space really gave off a factory vibe. The use of Crittall doors and windows is not only trendy and opens up the space more, but also links back to the Victorian era as they were invented by a Victorian ironmonger, Francis Henry Crittall.

We also loved how this kitchen uses colour. The designers were not afraid to use hints of black throughout the room, yet the space doesn’t feel too dark as the black tones are balanced well with the more vibrant greens, brassy tones, and white walls. The lighter shades help the light bounce around the room, preventing it from becoming too dark and gloomy.

Livingetc – 13 small home office ideas – how to create the perfect WFH setup in a tiny space

Who would have known in March 2020 that, over a year later, many of us would still be working from home for some, if not all, of the working week? For a vast majority of us, our home office setups were a temporary fix, however WFH for the foreseeable future has become a reality for much of the country. If you’re looking for tips on how to create a home office that’s perfect for compact spaces, this article is a must-read. Livingetc offers up a range of clever, stylish and unique ideas that are sure to not only provide a comfortable place to work, but will hopefully increase your productivity too!

Ever heard of a cloffice before? We hadn’t either! The trend has become increasingly popular on Pinterest since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. It’s essentially an office within a closet, which can be neatly tucked away when you’re not working, ideal for achieving the perfect work/life balance. Hanging a mirror is another great way to effortlessly make a room feel bigger or, to save floor space, why not try installing a floating desk? You can even hang shelves above it for added storage.

If you don’t have a spare room to turn into an office, the article also includes tips on how to create a dedicated space within other rooms in the home. For example, Livingetc suggests opting for a drop-down desk in the kitchen, or transforming an alcove in the living room into a dedicated office space. When it comes to colour, green tones can encourage a calming, relaxing atmosphere, and according to the article, “Greens inspire thought and logic, perfect for dealing with your daily tasks”, making it an ideal colour for using in an office!

Our favourite idea in the article, and one we hadn’t heard before, is to zone off your office space using wallpaper, perfect for when you’re working in an open-plan room. Pick a bright wallpaper that brings you joy, but be careful not to opt for patterns that are too distracting.

So, if you’re looking to make your working from home setup a little more permanent and want some advice and inspiration on where to start, make sure you check out this article.  Don’t forget to let us know in the comments which idea is your favourite!
