Home Offices that Renew and Inspire

The holidays are over and if you’re like me, reluctantly, it may be time to head back to the office — hopefully finding ways to feel inspired by the endless possibilities a New Year can bring.

If it’s a home office that’s calling you, and your ‘resolve’ is to be more productive — then your office design should consider things like available space, furniture placement, organization, color and comfort.

Choose the Right Color

Choose the Right Color

 

Color — even working from home can be stressful and easily distracting — choose colors that provide a sense of calm like shades of green, blue or beige.

A home office can also provide comfort and style by using art and accessories that showcase your interests — this metal-based table keeps the space open and airy and the wing-backed chair may have been “borrowed” from another room in the house, but certainly works here.

 

 

"Multi-Tasking" Made Easy

“Multi-Tasking” Made Easy

 

 

Multipurpose — when your office needs to work “double-duty,” furniture placement and organization is critical. This u-shaped layout provides lots of surface space for multitasking; the bookcases allow for plenty of vertical storage.

“Double Duty”

This office offers two work stations and still provides for organized, stylish storage all on one wall!

Space at a Premium?
This space was creatively carved into this valuable bit of “real estate” under the stairs; still taking into consideration the architecture of the home. Don’t you love the enclosed storage?

Instant Workspace

Instant Workspace

Here’s one of my favorites — this sofa table creates an instant work area — the top is recycled barn board and the base is old plumbing pipe — a wonderful example of ‘upcycling.’

I think we can all agree, that to be productive offices, home or otherwise, should always be functional. As you can clearly see, though, they can also be comfortable, stylish and even beautiful.

It’s a New Year and the possibilities are endless — it only takes some creativity and planning on your part. Just like the redesign of a home office that will really work for you.

Here’s to a happy and productive 2015!

Testimonials

"When my aging mother needed to relocate from NJ to FL RSM™ took care of every necessary task from family distributions, donations, and fix-ups! Bernadette Flaim’s home staging expertise made the MLS photos beyond attractive for this older, single-bedroom condo. There were several other apartments for sale in the same building for over a year. My unit received 4 offers in two weeks; 2 over asking price and one for cash. I realized this was not typical for property in my market area but, rather, the outstanding organizing, staging and selling skills of the ReadyStageMove™ Team.

Thank you so much!”

"I have had the good fortune of working with Bernadette Flaim and Jean Marie Herron of Ready Stage Move on countless home preparation, staging, and listing projects.  Not only are they absolute professionals in their respective fields, but they are personally delightful to work with and ensure that the process runs smoothly.  Every property listing in which their services were utilized sold at a higher price and more quickly than other properties on the market.  I cannot recommend them highly enough!"

“When ReadyStageMove™ came to my client’s home for a “Walk & Talk” recently, this was the first time I had worked with them, so I really didn’t know what to expect. What I did know was that this home needed some organizing and staging help before I was ready to put it on the market. I recommended to the client to hire RSM™ for their Walk & Talk. They agreed and Jean Marie and Bernadette professionally and non-judgmentally went through the house with me and the homeowners. Once the consultation was complete, the ReadyStageMove™ Team put together a thorough, detailed and easy to follow “List of Recommendations.” This document became my client's master checklist, using it as a guide to getting their property decluttered and attractively staged, before the Open House. My clients chose to do all the work themselves following all of RSM’s suggestions and recommendations. I was pleased to report that the house sold quickly and for top dollar!”
