The first thing that hit us was the snazzy yellow and gray color palette of the space (set stun-gun to 'energize'). And if you're into Feng shui (like us), you'll know that yellow is a color that is said to increase self-esteem and strengthen your overall well-being. Just what you'd want in a home office, right?
That spirit to uplift is seen again through their hand-made mural commanding attention on the main wall.here). Or you can put your money where your mouth is and order some wall quote decals from wallsplots.com.
The office desks and cabinets are all from IKEA (with a little bit of hackery). We personally think the coolest piece is the Veine desk that flips open for business or shuts closed when the work day is done. Talk about form and function.
The white-on-grey color combo they chose for their cool Herman Miller Setu chairs (just chilling, like no big deal) also seem to really ground the whole room.
