ADD AN ECLECTIC DISPLAY
Family keepsakes, artwork and messages add soul to a simple workspace – making it easy for everyone to contribute. ‘As this space is also used as a hallway, people use the wire storage to keep their favourite accessories to hand,’ says Sara.
SET A CREATIVE MOOD
Use light, colour, texture and scent to stimulate your flow of thoughts and help pull a multi-use space together. ‘Small rituals like lighting a candle or tending to a plant are nice ways to mark the beginning of ‘work’ time,’ says Sara.
FRAME YOUR INSPIRATION
A moodboard can help you keep your ideas, deadlines or to-do list in focus. ‘Instead of a pinboard I like to use the plain wall,’ says Sara. ‘I took a vintage frame from my grandmother, removed the glass and backing board, and painted the frame black to match the rest of the colour scheme.’
‘By introducing a desk, some practical organisation and a few cosy details, we were able to turn an unused part of the hallway into a creative workspace the whole family can use’
