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

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.

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!

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!
