LIVE LOVE LIFE LATELY



LIVE LOVE LIFE LATELY | City of Creative Dreams

I had to bring out my winter coat now. It is weird that I want winter to come now for the selfish reason is that I don't want another March winter. I love watching the snow from a window and seeing my little man's face when snow arrives or when he puts snow in his hands however, I also enjoy a March break without a winter coat and the long the winter takes to come the more worried I get about spring. Until then I will enjoy some fluffy pancakes and a fluffy winter coat.

How Designing A Creative Office Space Will Influence Your Company’s Culture

How Designing A Creative Office Space Will Influence Your Company’s Culture | City of Creative Dreams


Google Campus Office- Madrid

Business owners invest heavily in the design of their office for a whole range of reasons. After all, the workplace itself can have a huge impact on the health, morale and performance of your staff members. Yet, it can also influence the way they perceive your organisation, how they behave at work and the way they carry out their roles.

Ultimately, all of this means that factors like your interior design and office space planning can affect the very culture of your business. With many owners placing a focus on creating a positive corporate culture, this highlights the importance of designing a creative and inspiring office space.

The Office Layout
Windward Office – Tel Aviv

The actual layout of your office is perhaps the most obvious design element, and it can shape the way work takes place within your organisation. For example, a layout which separates employees through the use of walls and prioritises privacy is likely to lead to a culture grounded in consistent, efficient output, with a clear hierarchy.

By contrast, the open plan design, which has become so widespread over the past two decades, facilitates collaboration. If you work with an office design company to create this layout, you are more likely to end up with a culture based on teamwork and cohesion, with less clear divides between leaders and their subordinates.

In recent years, more relaxed office layouts have emerged as a growing trend and these workplaces may prioritise flexibility and choice, giving employees the option of moving freely around the office and perhaps even working from home. This type of design is likely to generate a culture centred on individual inspiration and creativity.

Decorative Elements
With that said, office space planning is far from the only factor that can influence culture and decorative elements have a role. According to the Harvard Business Review, companies that require challenging mental work should be decorated in relaxing colours, while more stimulating colours are good for when complacency is a consideration.

Meanwhile, a survey carried out by the British Council for Offices and International Art Consultants, published in a report entitled Making Art Work in the Workplace, found that more than 60 percent of participants believe artwork can help to stimulate the creativity of a workforce.

However, decorative elements can be more subtle and still have an impact. For instance, if your business depends on steady, reliable results, you could do worse than include a lot of natural elements. Indeed, studies from both the University of Queensland and Human Spaces found that the presence of plants boosts concentration and productivity.

Breaking Convention
Finally, some of the world's most successful businesses, including the likes of Google, Yahoo and Uber, have challenged conventional wisdom and embraced non-traditional design elements - from slides and sports areas, to snack bars and sleeping pods - resulting in truly creative and inspirational work environments.

Organisations that work with their chosen office design company to create something original and unique often end up with a positive culture, with high levels of employee engagement.

One BCO study, which polled thousands of British workers, found that well over half of the respondents reported improvements to their own productivity in non-traditional environments. Moreover, businesses that break the mould in terms of design create a culture that encourages innovation, risk-taking and thinking outside the box.

Eye-Catching Details That Everyone Will Notice in Your Living Room

 Eye-Catching Details That Everyone Will Notice in Your Living Room | City of Creative Dreams

Home décor is undoubtedly a very personal thing and everyone wants to be surrounded with things that feel pleasant and comfortable to them. Not to mention that the look of one’s home is a clear representation of one’s individuality and creativity. Achieving a unique look of your living room is especially important since this is the space that you will also show to other people. The great thing about home décor is that you can make it as simple or as complex as you like, depending on your budget and time. Most definitely, the easiest and arguably the most striking and effective way to make your living room a lot more interesting is introducing eye-catching details and statement pieces. There are also numerous ways to do so.


Amazing furniture pieces
If you have a spacious living room, you can easily transform its plain look with some effectively and creatively carved furniture. From coffee tables to sofas and chairs, you can use any unique design to make your living room look striking and eye-catching. Most of this kind of furniture is actually designer-made, so the pieces can be a little pricey. Still, there are also unique pieces on the market that are budget-friendly, you just need to have a lot of patience with your search. Don’t forget visiting garage sales where some vintage furniture treasure is just waiting to be discovered.


Accent colors
For those of you who don’t have a large budget or the room to store statement furniture, using accent colors as eye-catching details is one of the easiest, most affordable and effective options out there. For example, you can repaint your walls with accent colors, reupholster your regular furniture or introduce cushions, rugs and curtains in a bright pop of color. There are many interesting combinations as well. For minimalists, the so-called Rush Hour and Office Diligence color combos might prove to be perfect. On the other hand, those who love muted, almost autumnal colors would definitely enjoy the Casual Friday and Nightlife color combinations. For those with a very unique taste and a bit of extravagant spirit, a bright color combo such as Welcome Distraction or a pastel scheme such as Sunday Brunch can look amazing.


Outstanding display
Even small living rooms often have the problem of plain-looking walls. In that respect, your perfect eye-catching detail can turn out to be some kind of a unique and creative wall display. Wall galleries can be made to reflect your personality and you can go much further than your usual paintings and photographs. Moreover, there’s no rule that says what can actually be displayed. Use anything that speaks about your individuality and interests. For fashionistas, it can be some vintage outfit combination; for music lovers, the display of their favorite records; for nature enthusiasts, a display can be made of pressed plants and flowers, etc.


Truly extraordinary accessories
If you’re blessed with a large living room, you want to keep the theme clear and appealing. If you have a small living room, you don’t want to have too much clutter lying around. In both cases, you can achieve quite an outstanding look with just a couple of interesting accessories. If you’re not really sure about the type of accessory and room detail that would fulfill its striking purpose, take a look at Mecque offers, and you just might find your perfect decorative addition. In general, don’t try to make the living room interesting by filling it up with tons of bits and bobs. Go for a few carefully selected accessories such as an incense burner, candle holder or even a chandelier cover that would really lift up the atmosphere of the whole room.


When you redecorate your living room, remember that your particular taste is what matters the most. Of course, you have to keep in mind the size of the room you’re working on. You don’t have to change everything at once – in general, all you have to do is introduce special details that would liven up and personalize the whole room the way that suits you the best.
