Need a way to truly express your brand values?

Great office design is a super-power. So why not leverage it to show the world what you, and your team, are all about?

Workspaces needn’t be dull, drab and boring — don’t play-it-safe and opt for the traditional neutral office walls. Allow your corporate space to reflect your company’s personality instead.

Whether your brand is fun and upbeat, or professional and stylish, the interior design of your office is just as important a communication tool as your logo, website and packaging design.

So how can you make it work for you?

Bringing your visual brand language and office design together


It’s wild to imagine how something as small as a bee could have such an impact on our world. But they really are like mini superheroes.

Bees are vital to most ecosystems. Yet their populations are declining rapidly, and if they disappeared entirely, a vast proportion of our food sources would be at risk. Beekeepers in the US and Europe note a 30% decline in their bee numbers each year and currently wild bee species is in danger of extinction.

It’s our actions that are causing the decline of many of the world’s species, including bees. …


There’s really no right or wrong way to give back. Some people make financial donations, while others prefer to donate their time or skills. It’s not about how you do it, but about your intent to do good.

There are countless ways you can donate, and countless organizations or movements that you can donate to — you’ve just gotta find what works best for you. If you’re time-poor but have a disposable income, you can set up rolling monthly donations or buy products from causes you believe in. …


A fellow interior designer and author, Alexandra Stoddard, once said: “The home is the center of your soul; it’s a total reflection of your inner life”.

So what does your space say about you?

We can all be guilty of making a mess. When life is fast-paced and demanding, we take shortcuts: shoes get tossed by the front door, bills and letters pile up on the hallway table.

And on weekends, there are 100 or more other things we’d rather do than tackle mounds of papers or sort out the kitchen cupboards.

But actually, finding ways to tidy and organize…


All work and no play makes for a seriously stressed out business owner!

But it’s easier said than done to take time off from the 9 to 5 that’s become your whole life.

There are always clients to help, deadlines to meet and to-do lists to cross off. And it’s very tempting to make a lot of hay when the sun shines, especially when you know there will be business ups and downs.

If you’re going through a particularly sunny spell, the tendency is to keep on going — waving goodbye to vacations, days off and even your evenings in…

HOW TO GATHER (AND ORGANIZE) INSPIRATION DURING YOUR RENOVATION PROJECT

Most people run into one of two — completely opposite — problems when it comes to renovating or revamping a space.

You could find yourself completely lacking in inspiration and have no idea where to start. On the other hand, you could be absolutely overflowing with ideas, none of which you can make any sense of.

And neither of those places is somewhere you want to be!

The secret to success lies in planning and organizing your inspiration.

So, Pinterest boards at the ready! In this post, we’re going to reveal the best insider tricks to guide you through the…


Branding is literally the most important part of any business — no pressure!

But seriously, your company’s brand is how you connect with potential clients and consumers.

Good branding will help you attract new business, grow your reach, and build a trustworthy, memorable reputation.

Whether you run a big business or operate as a freelancer, creating a strong and cohesive brand that really represents who you are is essential. Let’s have a look at what branding is, why it’s so important, and how it’ll help your business thrive.

WHAT IS BRANDING?

These days, the term ‘brand’ is used pretty loosely. Some people even…


Coca-Cola’s branding is instantly recognizable. That red and white color scheme. That loopy, vintage-style typeface. We know it a mile off.

Even if their logo read “Pepsi”, we’d still be left thinking of Coca-Cola.

That’s because Coke has developed a seriously effective visual brand language (or VBL for short).

VBL encompasses the colors, shapes, images, materials, typography and composition used in a company’s graphic design. And it’s something that every brand — no matter how big or small — should be thinking about.

What does a good VBL look like?

Good VBL has two key characteristics:

1. Consistency

VBL should always be consistent.

Every time a customer…


I think we can all agree that the prospect of a whole-house renovation can feel a tad overwhelming. And, when there’s so much to do, it can be difficult knowing where to start.

Perhaps you’ve moved into a new home (congrats!). Or maybe your décor’s just starting to feel a little tired.

One thing’s for sure: if you walk into every room of your home and instantly spot the things you want to change, you won’t feel relaxed. So it’s time to make some decisions and start on those renovations!
