Are you tired of having to pick up all of your work because the table has to be set for dinner? Is accommodating art projects and homework affecting your productivity? Maybe now is the time to get serious with your business and set up your official home office.
When you start a home office project, you first need to choose a location. Find something that you can isolate from the traffic – behind a door is best, but even a side alcove of your living room cut off by furniture and defined by strategic placement of area rugs works. By defining the area, you may even also be able to write it off of your taxes in some cases, so be very deliberate with this step.
Many stay-at-home moms often consider watching other children in their homes to earn some extra money for their family. For those who not only take the idea seriously, but turn it into a business, the result is an in-home day care. Most licensed in-home day cares have to have a separate area for the children. If you are establishing a new in-home day care or would like to give yours a face lift, try some of the decorating ideas below to get you started.
The first thing that you want to do when designing an in-home day care space is to make it colorful and appealing to the children who will be in it. You can choose from a primary color palette that makes ample use of red, blue and yellow or go with a softer, more neutral color palette that focuses on white, brown and blue. No matter what color scheme you feel most comfortable with, make sure that the accent pieces that you plan to use, like the beautiful dragonfly metal art that is perfect for the science nook, match the chosen colors.
The concept of plastic furniture usually conjures up an image of something that is not particularly attractive, may be functional but won’t have a long life, and is generally cheap and low quality. However, the plastics industry has come a long way in recent years and this does not have to be the case. The great thing about plastic furniture is the very fact that it is low cost and can be used for a variety of purposes. In many ways, it is even more practical than expensive wooden furniture, which may look a little nicer, would be.
So what kinds of plastic furniture would you use to decorate your home? And where would you put it?
“Hi, we’d like you to decorate our house! You know, chose the colors for the painting, probably some wallpaper, tiling, whatever you feel it could look nice. Also, if you can create that feeling of “home” it would be great. Uhm, and one other thing … we want our bedroom to have a unique contemporary touch. Think you can help us?”
so I said: “Yeah, I can help you, but my services are a bit pricey… why don’t I give you some tips so you can manage the work by yourselves?”
Talk about funky design in furniture, huh? The crazy combination between colors and the fabulous icons definitely will make your eye pop. The uniqueness of this piece of furniture comes also from it’s shape. Four handles with a unexpected design and position come together to complete the design.
The Riddle drawers [believe or not, that's their name] is the perfect combination for your bedroom or why not? your kids bedroom. Awesome design! Take that Gaudi!
