While we were on our honeymoon, my husband and I talked about our plans for our future home and he specifically noted that I needed to have my own home office where I can do my blogging and social networking activities as well as other office stuff that I needed to do. Maybe he can also camp in when he has to check his stocks online or when he has to play some of his computer games. And today, I decided that I should scour the web for some pretty home office ideas.
I have long dreamed of having wood flooring in my own home and I couldn’t be any happier with the availability of faux wooden tiles in the market today. I have read quite a few design blogs that featured this new innovation in making homes look rustic and elegant at the same time.
Verner Panton (13 February 1926 – 5 September 1998) is considered one of Denmark’s most influential 20th-century furniture and interior designers. During his career, he created innovative, funky and futuristic designs in a variety of materials, especially plastics, and in vibrant and exotic colors. His style was very “1960s” but regained popularity at the end of the 20th century; as of 2004, Panton’s most well-known furniture models are still in production. -Wikipedia
Verner Panton in his own words:
“The main purpose of my work is to provoke people into using their imagination. Most people spend their lives living in dreary, grey-beige conformity, mortally afraid of usning colours. By experimenting with lighting, colours, textiles and furniture and utilizing the latest technologies, I try to show new ways, to encourage people to use their phantasy imagination and make their surroundings more exciting”.
Here are some of his works featured in Copenhagen – Hotel Alexandra (situated right in the heart of Copenhagen by the Town Hall Square and the Tivoli Gardens):
It’s spring/summer season once again. For those who were punished by the cold to stay indoors, this is tantamount to freedom. What better way to celebrate this than to get cozy and comfortable outside to enjoy the breeze and the sunlight. Hooray for warm months…

One of the most dreaded spaces in any house is the attic. It can be dark, hot and if you are claustrophobic then you better not try to get inside this space. How do you really make use of the attic besides it being a storage area or a rat and roach-infested maison? An attic space gives a homeowner the opportunity to have enough privacy and have a view of what’s outside the house. Attics can make a great guest bedroom, kids room, or even a huge master’s bedroom.
The slanting roof of the attic provides a great design if I may say so. And yes, using the attic as a functional space is a great idea and probably one of the best space-saving strategy.
