When I decided to work as freelance I wasn’t sure if I will be able to find a space to work from especially when you don’t want to spend a lot of money renting out studio / office space in London. I didn’t like the idea of working from home either as I thought it will limit my creativity and I wouldn’t be very productive.
Despite my small space, I still think that your home office should reflect your personality yet motivate you to be super productive.

As the nights are getting longer and the days are getting shorter, it won’t be long before we’re all snuggled up on the sofa and spending more time indoors. So I think it's time to re-decorate our homes turning it into a cozy and stylish place to spend these long nights.
Curious? So keep on reading ……
SET THE RIGHT MOOD:
Invest in good candles to create a calm and warm atmosphere. I love to group them into one corner, not only it smells good but it also helps me to relax enjoying the simple pleasure of the ambiance of my space.
Rather than switching on the main ceiling lights, try to focus on accent lighting such as floor lamp, lantern which doesn’t produce bright light source. I personally like the idea of placing a statement floor lamp in living room or reading nook to bring a practical ambient lighting.
2. FALL TONES :
Update your colour schemes to embrace the deeper tones found in changing colours of autumn leaves. Think warm neutrals and earthy colours this season from sofas to cushions and rugs. Take a quick walk outside to get inspired from the changing colours of the leaves which will help you capture the crisp but cosy colour scheme.
And if you are adventures like me and thinking to paint the four walls, its important to keep in mind that during winter the paint colour will look slightly different. The paint colour will look much colder then it was in summer natural light.
3.COSY DETAILS :
Embrace the feeling of cosy this winter through supersized knitted blankets and a statement throw which will immediately transform the look and feel of your space.
And update your resting corners by adding soft, fluffy textures. Add a chunky knitted throw, soft rug or some faux fur to your chairs, sofa and beds to encourage relaxation and snuggling.
Swap lighter coloured cushions with a deeper hue to quickly transform the look of your sofa / bed. Try layering and mixing different type of cushions ( I prefer over-sized ones) on your sofa to add a touch of elegance, whilst maintaining a comfy atmosphere.
For a timeless look or if you like to make a statement with a bold hue, velvet simply adds an element of richness to your home. And if your lifestyle doesn’t suit a velvet sofa, try adding few velvet cushions to embrace the look.
So there you have it, few tips to prepare your home this winter. I hope you found them useful and would love to read your comments!

Many people use the obvious solution for the space under the staircase for storing shoes, accessories etc. especially if its near the entrance. It could seem a tiny space but there are many creative ways to make use of this space and make it seem much larger.
If your space under your stairs isn’t already being used, and looking to fill it with something less predictable perhaps one of these ideas might work for you so keep on reading...
How many of you actually thought of turning that space into working space? I think not many of you figured this out but I personally think its useful especially for those who work from home or freelancers. Just make sure that the stairs are wide enough and straight forward allowing you to place a table at least.
2. KIDS PLAY ZONE:
Its always a good idea to provide space for kids to explore new things ,keep them busy for hours and a play house under the stairs is every child’s dream.
3. READING NOOK:
How about a place to curl up and read a book or have a nap? Well, I think its that corner where you want to unwind or have a chat. Adding few cushions and storage underneath will Immediately add some value to the space.
4. STORAGE :
It has always been my dream to have hidden built-in storage in hallway. It feels like a secret doorway, but its actually a neat way to organize everything from shoes to kids toys creating a modern and sleek look to your home. You could also combine open shelves with closed drawers to have more room for objects you want to conceal and those you want to expose.
5. DISPLAY YOUR PERSONALITY:
Your home should reflect your personality so add a refreshing twist to that triangular shaped space to display a gallery wall or a cube shelving unit to act as modern library area.
