Go Monochrome! Matching Hardware With Decor

Go Monochrome! Matching Hardware With Decor

Turning a living room indent into a office landing strip isn't as simple as it looks. You need a keen eye for design cohesion or else it'll look like a sloppy makeshift area for junk. If you're into black and white with punches of color, it makes the decor and tech selection process all the more easier.

Since the majority of tech these days sport a monochromatic palette anyway, choosing your tech to complement your design isn't much of a challenge at all. The challenge is actually getting it to not make your pad look like a complete shiny accumulation of plastics from around the world.

When it comes to landing strip furniture, stay completely minimal. Pick specific pieces that you see yourself using day in and day out - like a table that's the perfect size for the space, but not too big to make the area feel cramped and not too small that your laptop will just slip off the table at the slightest nudge.

Remember, simplicity is key in a serene space. The less you have going on, the more effective the dedicated area will be.
