4 of my styling ideas for our new offices....


Gee...we haven't moved in our new offices yet that we already have a photoshoot scheduled! Crazy!
Francois has been commissioned by Curio magazine to shoot our team and our new studio/showroom  in February and while it's totally manic at the moment, I feel there is nothing like a good deadline to get you (well me) cracking with the interior design of our new offices.
I have been compiling inspiring images of workspaces on Pinterest for a while now and here are the first 4 plans of actions I want to tackle to create an office environment that feels welcoming, nurturing and friendly:

1) Replace our old Ikea desks (sorry Swedish giant it's time to move on!) by 2 or 3 FORM tables for the team and line them up in a row to maximise the space and create a friendly environment,
2) Replace our dry-wipe board by a couple of blackboards to keep track of our deadlines and projects and pin inspiring mood boards,
3) Mix chic industrial furniture with contemporary designs and gorgeous prints like this Feathers print or the Batgirl print to achieve a look that reflects our brand ethos,
4) Use these clipboards to display the flatplan of our mail order catalogue, mood boards and 2013 priority projects (i.e. pop-up store, new catalogue, etc...)

Wow...nous n'avons meme pas encore emménagé dans nos nouveaux bureaux que nous avons déja un photoshoot prévuDingue!
Francois a été commissioné par Curio magazine pour photographier notre équipe et notre studio en Février et bien qu'on est du boulot plein la planche en ce moment, je me dis qu'il n'y a rien de mieux qu'une petite deadline pour que je m'attaque a la déco de nos bureaux.
J'adore compiler des images inspirantes de bureaux sur Pinterest et voici les quatre premiers trucs auxquels je vais m'atteler pour créer un environnement de travail accueillant, relaxant et agréable: 

1) Remplacer nos vieux bureaux d'Ikea (désolé le géant Suédois mais il est temps de passer a autre chose!) par 2 ou 3 tables FORM pour l'équipe et les mettre en ligne afin de maximiser l'espace et créer un espace de travail sympa,
2) Remplacer nos tableaux blancs par des tableux noirs pour noter nos deadlines, projets et ajouter quelques photos inspirantes dans le mix,
3) Mélanger des meubles aux lignes industrielles avec du désign contemporain et mes illustrations préférées telles que l'affiche Feathers ou celle de la Batgirl pour créer un look qui nous ressemble et traduit les codes de notre concept store et de notre marque,
4) Utilisez ces clipboards pour afficher le chemin de fer de notre catalogue, mood boards et projets prioritaires pour 2013 (par example: un pop-up store, le nouveau catalogue, etc...)

Your improvement ideas for a new office space are brilliant. Love the idea of mixing chic furniture items with contemporary ones. Thanks. And by the way, do share the photoshoot, everyone is excited for it! ;)

The blackboards are a nice touch, and practical to boot. At the very least, you have an area to post deadlines and reminders. Thinking further, it’s a free idea board where you can just wipe the previous contents and just draw designs right in front of your colleagues when you need it.
