INTERIOR INSPIRATION: Home Office

Happy Wednesday! if you remember, I've decided to come up with a couple of interior inspiration posts for my new apartment in London (which is still in hunt..). I'm a huge fan of home offices, I love to sink in my own little space with a cup of tea and some cookies while editing my photos. I love customising my inspiration board on the wall, and tweaking the desk with a couple of beautiful gems I've picked up from my trips around the world. So today, I would like to share a couple of home office inspirations I've come across and absolutely love on Pinterest.

時間過得真快,從當初忙得為了和學校面試忙到焦頭爛額,到現在離正式出發到倫敦只剩不到一個月,幾個月下來的緊湊步伐,還是有點讓人難以置信。「是倫敦耶!」心裏常常這樣想著,一直嚮往著大城市生活的我,人生的下一趟旅程就在眼前,每天看著日期,內心興奮不已。日期慢慢逼近,我開始在網路上看著佈置公寓的各種靈感,繼上次的房間靈感,這次將目標轉移到 Home Office 個人工作室。說個人工作室實在有點不好意思,說實在點,其實就是在家裡隔出一小塊區域,在寫作業、部落格或編輯照片用;不過能夠在自己的小公寓裡有個這樣的空間,也是種享受啊!在逛 Pinterest 的時候,規劃出了國外Home Office常見的三個特點,與你們分享。

1. Black & White Designs

Being a huge fan of black and white photography, I guess its no surprise that I get attracted to black and white interior designs as well. Modern and clean, and they also create a sense of profession. Some may worry that with black and white, everything is going to look too stiff, but I really think we the right decoration, it could also look really trendy and fun. 

Or if you want something a little warmer, add in some pink and natural wood colours. Spice it up with something feminine. Equally boyish and girly at the same time. I also love simple table designs, it gives me a lot of space to get creative for different desk situations..you know, like creating your flat-lay photos haha!

相信認識我的人都知道,我最喜歡的顏色就是黑跟白,在我身上不太會出現過多複雜或是鮮豔的色彩,就連衣服的剪裁也都是崇向簡單基本。對我來說,這兩個顏色簡單卻不無聊,在精巧的搭配下,顯得格外時髦。黑色給人穩重的專業感,而一碰到有活力的白色,就有種難以言喻的平衡;假如害怕只有黑白兩色會讓空間顯得太冷,其實可以加入一點原木色,或是擺放女性化一點的裝飾等等,都能為整體增添些溫潤的色澤,增加溫度。

2. Huge Window

Natural light is so important for photoshoots, and needless to say, for our eye health. I'm a very visual person, being able to see the world move and change while working just gives me so much inspiration. Plus, its always nice to get some sunlight in during cold winter time..Imagine this, wrapping yourself in your knit cardigan, sipping from your mug of hot cocoa, facing that snowing window scene... life just keep getting better, doesn't it? 

大家是否都跟我一樣,對落地窗有種說不出原因的著迷?常常幻想著假如以後住的地方有一大片的落地窗有多好,在寫文章的時候,讓溫暖的陽光灑進來,光是用想的就覺得太美好了。雖然說倫敦天氣幾乎都是陰陰的,但是只要足夠的窗戶陽台,還是能為室內帶進點自然光的。特別是在冬天或是雨天,在家裡待著,手握著一杯暖呼呼的熱可可,看著窗外,享受著一個人獨處的片刻,學會與自己相處。

3. Your Mood & Inspiration Board 04c0fb4540afe0fae49a2db009f706ed71fda0e1379ccd6d1b8ee52cb77be432

My favourite part of decorating a home office is definitely the mood board or wall. I personally prefer sticking travel photos or postcards on the board. Mood boards are so creative and personal at the same time. As for me, my mood boards/ walls tends to be cozy, rustic and actually a little messy. Most pieces are the memorable pieces I collected from my previous travels. Ah..how I wish I'm now in London already, styling up my new mood board, getting ready for my next journey. 

記得剛開始到澳洲讀書的時候因為未成年,所以必須住在學校的宿舍。小小的,一張床、衣櫃、書桌,五六步就結束的空間,看似制式化,但其實每個學生都有自己的辦法,把它佈置的獨一無二。那時候的我因為想家,在書桌前的桌上貼滿了所有和「台灣」有關的東西,有家人朋友的拍立得、有名片、也有許多朋友寫給的祝福小卡。一年後,搬出了宿舍,在外面租了房,對於貼照片的迷戀卻並沒有因此結束,只是這次除了身邊的人事物,也多了旅遊時所拍攝的作品,以及每到一個新的城市就會購買給自己的明信片。Mood Board ,我認為放在 Home Office 再適合不過了,腦筋打結的時候,抬頭一看就是滿滿的靈感;心情不好的時候,更能在這些回憶中找尋美好的時光,給自己打打氣,繼續前進。
