A florist, a graphic designer and a stylist walk into west elm. What do you get? 3 distinct, creative, mag-worthy home studio makeovers that’ll give you serious #homeofficegoals. Find your favourite:
1. The Florist
Holly Hipwell, florist, event designer and owner of The Flower Drum, enlisted the help of west elm Bondi home stylist, Brendan Nash, to help refresh her eclectic home studio in Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
“Try and think beyond a run-of-the-mill office chair. This upholstered number is not only functional, but so beautiful. It works back well with the desk but has a strong punch of personality” says Brendan.
“There is nothing nicer than a little green in your workspace. Flowers in a vase or a small pot plant completely change the feeling of the space.”
2. The Graphic Designer
Mid-century monochrome vibes rule this studio, home to Brisbane-based graphic designer and blogger Matthew Harrison.
“Historically, my workspaces have always been a chaotic mess – think endless piles of post-its, empty coffee cups and half-read magazines. When restyling my space, I wanted to put an end to this once and for all. However, I didn’t want the desk to feel sparse or clinical. It was therefore important the pieces of decor I chose were interesting and exuded personality, but didn’t overwhelm and distract. The process of decorating and styling was made easy by working with a really simple colour palette, creating a simple mood-board to help inspire, and always keeping my goal of ultimate tidiness in mind.”
“The Clint combines some of my absolute favourite colours, materials and shapes into a perfectly practical lamp without looking over-the-top or out of place. Similarly, the Scissor Spindle Chair is comfortable and makes such a beautiful statement against the simplicity of the desk itself, what more could you want in a chair?”
3. The Stylist
Sneaky sneaky! Sydney-based interior decorator, stylist and blogger, Briar Stanley of Sunday Collector proves you don’t need loads of space to pull off a stylish home office.
