August | Let the summer begin!

dive_mbf

First day of August and the living is easy… or I wish it was! As I get closer and closer to my vacation days it’s getting even harder to focus and work! What about you? I must ignore the sirens and do stuff but all I think is a deep dive into the sea and forget about everything…

So, what did you do the weekend? I had a very special time because my best friend is getting married in a month and we had all kind of preparations! Wedding dress fitting and 2 kind of bachelor parties! One night version of it (At a beach bar, drinking cocktails and wearing funny stuff) and one morning version of it (traditional hammam treatment!!!) This second one was my favorite! I’ll talk about it next days, I hope..

So, you tell me, how can I work after such a weekend!? Impossible!!

New week – new blog thoughts

working with a viewLately I have a difficulty on posting home offices! Maybe it’s the political developments in Greece that have taken all my thoughts away in general – you just can’t focus in this uncertainty. These days that I was already working from home I always find some reason to get up, clean something, tidy up the house..(and even so it’s a mess again!).
Maybe it’s the summer that got into me and doesn’t let me even think about work..I don’t know. Especially as we go deeper and deeper in my favorite season I don’t feel like working…at all!

I think it’s the combination of these 2 reasons but the second one it’s not gonna change soon (I don’t even want to make assumptions about the first reason!), that’s why I’m reconsidering about monday’s posts. I would like your opinion though. I was thinking of cute patios instead and outdoor spaces in general, or one shot with great design details with irrelevant theme each time, sometimes it could be a dreamy workplace again. Or something else..what do you think?

Home office of the week

workspace vogue livingHello again! I lost my Monday-date with the blog but I’m here today for it. The truth is with all the latest political developments in Greece I don’t have clear thinking to do anything. Not to mention working!! I have a real hard time to focus and some drawings waiting to be done!

However, I’m still trying and that’s why I thought to be inspired by a workspace like every week. This home office has everything I need for this: Rough wooden desk, very simple, design armchairs because we may be simple but our aesthetic can be hidden! Sky blue color on the wall to keep us calm and delightful like the summer sky and some irrelevant statues on the desk and some art posters to keep art and construction on the table! I shouldn’t forget to mention the fantastic sleek and chic grey floor that fits perfectly with the classic carved wooden panels around! Let’s work now…(?)

Office of the week

rafa kids deskWhen did Monday arrive again?! Bring weekend back! Or bring the next weekend now… I imagine, I could compromise with this desk though. I could do some work in such an environment if you insist… This K desk, designed by Rafa-kids is just an eye treat, so chic and delicate, simple enough and very practical! See here for more details, there are no screws or connectors outside, its finish is very smooth and it can be closed or open depending on how you want to use it. I like its multifanctionality. Also, in total white in an environment like that – parisian appartment for example is just perfect! Did you notice the book titles on the surface? Design and Architecture, of course! So, have a smooth Monday and a happy working week! Good morning!

Office of the week

garden officeGood morning everyone! How do you feel this monday, ready for the new week? I’m not! I’d like some more hours of sleeping please… That’s why I chose this workspace today, to cheer me up and inspire me for work. Isn’t it a small paradise? Like you work in the jungle and this is your shady, cool working spot where you can create stuff in peace. Industrial and raw environment but with the element of nature everywhere giving a sensitive touch. Ok, now I’m ready of going out, thankfully it’s a sunny day! Have a nice week!

Office of the week

home office plantsThis home office  has bring the nature inside! Green plants, green books! A simple mirror on the desk surprise us with some glossiness. Again without computer on the desk! I think I was needed some technology-off time if I take my last office choices seriously and I think I charged my batteries enough this last weekend.
According to the photographer and owner of the workplace it’s used for illustrations and watercolors, full of botany books and plants from Nicaragua, interesting right?

Office of the week

BandG-Reception-2012_m Good morning and happy February! Let’s hope it’ll roll smoothly! As a new month starts and a week at the same time I decided to start some posts every Monday. To sweetened the difficult day a bit! This time it won’t be on monday but that’s going to be the spirit. And the subject of them will be home offices. Cozy, cute, creative and joyful working spaces! As if we worked from home..every Monday I wish I worked in my place!

This office is as funny as it gets! It just gets you a happy face just looking it. Permanent balloons from one side and jenga legs from the other! I wonder if we worked in a desk of balloons our work would be the same? Our desk would be super awesome that would be sure!
It’s in Dublin at the agency Boys and Girls. See more here.
