The signature Natalie style is probably the shoe Sarah Flint is best known for. In the earlier days of the company this style had a waitlist that over 2,000. Last year Sarah Flint added the Natalie Sling to the collection, and it is one of my personal favorites; such a fan of the 360 padding and I always have a weak spot for a classic slingback moment

6 Chic Office Design Tips for a Productive Stylish Workspace

 I have always found office design to be pretty interesting just because that is a space that tends to be a reflection of a person’s interest/profession/personality tailored to suit the environment where they work wheatear that’s at home or a traditional office setting. Today Peter Minkoff is sharing a few tips for a productive and stylish workspace!

Office design has grown in importance in recent years. The design of your office can have a significant impact on your employees' productivity as well as your clients' perception of your company. As a result, paying attention to your office design is critical, especially if you want to create a chic and modern workspace. Here are some chic office design ideas to help you create a stylish and functional space:

 

Consider the Layout and Furniture Placement

The layout and furniture placement are two of the most important aspects of designing a chic office. The layout of your office should be determined by the nature of your work and the number of employees in your organization. If you have a large office, you can divide it into zones for various departments. Furniture can also be used to define different zones. A large sofa and coffee table, for example, can be used to create a lounge area where employees can relax and brainstorm. Tall bookshelves can also be used to create a visual barrier between different workstations.

 

Use Color and Texture to Add Interest

Color and texture can have a big impact on the mood of a room. As a result, it is critical to employ them effectively in your office design. To instill a sense of energy and creativity in your workspace, use bold and bright colors. Alternatively, you can create a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere by using muted and calming colors. Texture can also be used to add interest to your office design. To add depth and dimension to your space, consider using textured wallpaper or a woven rug.

 

Introduce Natural Elements

Including natural elements in your office design can help to create a sense of calm and tranquillity. Plants, wood, and stone, for example, can help to soften the hard edges of your office design and create a more relaxed atmosphere. For instance, office plant hire is a great way to incorporate plants into your workspace. Plants not only add beauty, but they also improve air quality and reduce stress.

 

Incorporate Art and Accessories

Art and accessories can give your office design personality and character. They can also be used to reinforce your company's brand and culture. When choosing art and accessories for your office, keep the style and theme of your office in mind. For example, if you have a modern and minimalist office, you can add interest with abstract art and simple accessories. If you have a more traditional office, you can create a sense of elegance and sophistication with classic art and decorative accessories.

 

Ensure Adequate Lighting

Lighting is an essential component of any office design. Good lighting can boost productivity while reducing eye strain. When designing your office, make sure there is enough natural light. If natural light is not available, you should use artificial light sources such as overhead lights and lamps. Consider the color temperature of your lighting as well. Cool white light can help you focus and be more productive, whereas warm white light can help you relax and feel more at ease.

 

Keep it Clutter-Free

A disorganized workspace can be both distracting and overwhelming. For this reason, it is critical to keep your office design clutter-free. This can be accomplished by utilizing storage solutions such as filing cabinets and bookshelves. Encourage your employees to keep their workspaces clean and organized. A clutter-free workspace can improve focus and productivity, making it an essential component of any stylish office design.

 

Creating a stylish office requires attention to detail and a keen sense of style. You can create a chic and modern workspace that will impress both your employees and clients by considering the layout and furniture placement, using color and texture, incorporating art and accessories, introducing natural elements, ensuring adequate lighting, and keeping it clutter-free

Sarah Flint Return To Royalty

 Sarah Flint’s Spring collection is nothing short of a dream. I always have such a love and appreciation for her attention to detail, the designs she is able to bring to life, her overall talent, and how she is able to create the most beautiful shoes and still maintain an element of comfort. Sarah Flint’s Spring Collection, Faraway Fables is being released in four section, each including a variety of shoes and a simply stunning scarf to round out each section. 

The first section in the Faraway Fables collection is ‘Return to Royalty’, and these shoes are just so stunning! I couldn’t help but share a few of my favorites… pssst… you can use my code: SARAHFLINT-BALAURENAID for $50 off your favorite pair of 

shoes!!!!

Perfect Sacha 85// This is a heel truly fit for royalty. Again, love the hint of a half bow, and the way the straps were designed for this shoe is impressive, the structure of this shoe is simply beautiful! This style is available in 3 different colors and would be absolutely perfect for the upcoming spring and summer wedding season!

Leah 85// I am completely in love with Sarah Flint’s take on a mule slide. The details, hint of a half bow, and the overall structure of the heel is truly stunning! And… this shoe is available in 2 different colorways!

Natalie Ballerina// if you are familiar with Sarah Flint shoes, the Natalie Ballerina is the perfect combination between the original Natalie flat and and the Sacchetto Ballet Flat. The Natalie Ballerina is currently available in three different colors, and I love how the toe box is more of a square shape than rounded so it mimics the shape of a point shoe. This flat is such a classic; cannot recommend it enough! 

Natalie in Champagne Lame// The Natalie flat is probably what Sarah Flint is known best for, and for good reason! This style is available in several colors, but the Champagne Lame is the newest addition to this style, and let me just say, it is even more beautiful in person!

Perfect Kitten Pump 50// Fact: everyone needs a classic kitten heel as part of their wardrobe staple collection, and this is the perfect kitten to fill that missing spot! 

Perfect Arabesque Wedge// If you are a fan of the Arabesque Slide, then you obviously need to add the Arabesque Wedge to your spring/summer collection. This is available in two different heights and in two different colorways. Hands down, my favorite thing about a wedge is they are always so comfortable and can be dressed up or down!

Arabesque Slide in Black Nappa & Bronze Leather// Thie Arabesque Slide was a new style last year and I love the new colorway the have added! The black and gold combination for where I live makes it a slide you can easily wear 3 out of 4 seasons. This shoe is so well made and such a great investment! Again, don’t forget to use code: SARAHFLINT-BALAURENAID for $50 off!

Links I'm Loving

 I feel like this week has been the weirdest week all the way around, but still a good one!  I honestly cannot believe we are reaching the end of February. I feel like the past few years have really flown by… Definitely making a point to savor all the moments, big and small, that happen in 2023. For now, here are a few links that I am currently loving!

One// Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret

I feel like this is such a blast from the past from my childhood. Judy Blume is such a beloved author, and I am so excited that this book has finally been made into a movie! 

 

Two// Sarah Flint $100 off Sacchetto Flats

This is a moment that calls for some excitement!! Sarah Flint Saccetto Flats are one of my go-to shoes anytime of the year. The leather that is used to make this shoe is so soft and I absolutely love the fact that a point shoe was the inspiration for this shoe. You can use code: FAB100 to receive $100 off any Sacchetto Flats, and you can also use code: SARAHFLINT-BALAURENAID to receive $50 off any other pair of Sarah Flint shoe that catches your eye! 

 

Three// Joanna Gaines Chicken Noodle Soup

I have been so impressed with Joanna Gaines recipes so far. Her Chicken Noodle soup is so classic, easy to make, and the best comfort food on a rainy day. Side Note: this recipe does call for homemade noodles…. I cheated a little and used egg noodles in mind and it worked perfectly, for those of you who, like me, don’t want to take the time to make your own noodles.

 

Four// Annual LAKE Pajama Sale

Love, love, love these pajamas. They are so soft and 100% worth the investment. If you are on the fence about Lake Pajamas or are just looking to add a few more pairs to your collection, this is the perfect opportunity to either purchase your first pair or stock up on some old favorites! Fit note: Definitely recommend sizing up; these pajamas do tend to shrink a bit if you plan on tossing them in the dryer. I usually wash mine, hang them up to dry, and run them through the dryer on the lowest heat setting to get the wrinkles out and make them soft, and even just a short time I have them in the dryer they do draw up slightly. For size reference, I wear and XS in J. Crew pajamas and a Small in LAKE Pajamas.  

 

Five// The White Lotus

I know, I am a little late to the party on this one… I just finished watching White Lotus, and it is an absolute must watch!
