“You’re gorgeous, baby, you’re sophisticated, you live well…Vancouver is Manhattan with mountains. It’s a liquid city, a tomorrow city, equal parts India, China, England, France and the Pacific Northwest. It’s the cool North American sibling.” - The New York Times


Designing Your PERFECT Home Office

Nowadays, more and more people are starting to work from home. Making sure that you have a perfectly designed home office can help increase your productivity, while letting you work from the comfort of your own home. 

Here's some of our tips on perfecting your home office!

Designate a Room as Your Home Office

Although you may think that your dining table is the perfect spot to set up your laptop and start working, it really isn't! Designating a room to act as your home office helps create a better work/life balance. It prevents any personal distractions in your home from disrupting your work time, and allows you to be more productive. Make sure the room is located in a quiet area of your home (no loud noises outside), has a door (to prevent from distractions), and a window (to help brighten up the room). 

Comfortable Chair

Sitting at a desk is definitely not the best for your posture, so make sure you have a comfortable chair with good back support!

Good Lighting

Make sure your room has good natural lighting (hence why a room with a window is important). Sunshine can help boost your energy and mood while working. Investing in a good desk lamp is also a good idea for those late-night work sessions.


Sitting in a room with 4 plain white walls can be quite boring and sad. Hang some motivational quotes on the wall, create a vision board, or anything that will help motivate you in your work! Don't forget to add some greenery in your office as well, like a cactus or succulent. 

Keep It Organized

Buy filing cabinets, hanging cabinets, or a large desk to help keep your work space clean and organized. Create a organizational system that works for YOU! There's nothing worse than a cluttered work space! 

We hope that you found some of these tips helpful, and that you can create YOUR perfect home office!
