4 Tips for Updating Your Home Office

Comfy Chair

Having a comfy able chair in front of your desk won’t just help your back, it will also give your neck better support. People often neglect proper back support, which can lead to all sorts of issues down the line, so make sure to get an ergonomic chair.

Adjustable Desk or Computer

Standing desks are all the rage right now, but having a simple adjustable computer screen or stand for your laptop can really affect your posture. You can get a reasonably priced laptop stand off amazon or any number of online retailers, look for one with holes/slats to make sure that your laptop doesn’t overheat.

Art

Did you think I wouldn't take some time to talk about how art can affect your mood? Having a beautiful framed art print beside you can really inspire you, or simply create a more cohesive look to the space. Choose a poster or print that is neutral and calming, I recommend going for a neutral abstract or landscape, but a fun matisse print could also be a great choice.

Good Light

If you’re not blessed with huge windows in your home office, try to add a standing lamp or desk lamp to bring more light into your home office. It’s been proven that people are happier when their in brighter lit rooms.

3 Ways to Bring A Spring Vibe Into Your Space

Fresh Cut Leaves/Flowers

Now this one may be obvious, but having fresh cut leaves or flowers can really make a space feel so much more seasonal. I recommend either buying a potted plant (daffodils and hyacinths) or grabbing some wildflowers from outside if you’re looking for a more sustainable and budget-friendly option. In terms of decorating, I suggest either placing the plants on your table, counter or in your bedroom, just put them somewhere you will be able to see and enjoy them often.

Art

In terms of spring themed art, I recommend Matisse posters or prints, you could also go with fun floral themed wall art. Stick to brighter pastels to bring some spring to your walls. For frames, stick to lighter options such as maple or white for a more seasonal look. Switching your gallery wall or wall art with the seasons is an incredibly easy way to add some colour and design to your space.

Linens

It’s time to put away those thick darker drapes and sheets and switch to whites or creams. For an even lighter room, switch out the curtains to a thinner cotton or linen instead of heavy dark colours. It’s amazing how much more light will enter the space, the lighter colour palette will also make the space seem bigger and cleaner.

Matisse Art Prints

Welcome back reader, I hope you had a pleasant week. Today I want to talk to you about the rise of minimalism and how Matisse art prints are making a huge splash in social media.

Minimalist trends have been steadily rising for years, bringing back more simple and graphic art styles. It would be strange to have a white room with simple furniture and an elaborate old fashioned painting, so decorators have chosen to stick with more shape-based artwork to compliment this design aesthetic. I’m sure you’ve seen a ton of influencers online with their fancy apartments and their Matisse art prints. Matisse is a great choice for simple decoration styles as his work is very colour and shape-based. This simply means he mostly painted colourful blobs. His other most popular prints are line art, again a simple drawing or painting that will match a more modern design taste.

It’s not only that his art is simple, Matisse is a name that a lot of people recognize. Most people don’t have a terribly diverse art history knowledge, but I would recon almost everybody has at least heard the name Matisse. Buying name brand clothing and accessories has been trendy and a status symbol for a long-time, and this is no exception with artwork. Buying artwork with a big name like Matisse on it can look upscale and fashionable.

Whether you purchase a Matisse print for the name, style or simple the trend, Matisse art prints are great pieces for any modern space. With a timeless modern style, it’s no wonder 67 years after his death, Henri Matisse’s work lives on in contemporary homes.
