Week of June 17, 2019

From finding the perfect purpose for that spare room in your house to open, contemporary office design – here are our top design picks for the week.

1. Finding Purpose for that Spare Room

Our Room of Requirement, Lauren Liess

Sometimes there are spaces that we just aren’t sure what to do with and it takes a stroke of inspiration to finally get things to feel right. Lauren Liess finally found purpose for this great room in her home that faces her vegetable garden – a home office with rustic-chic touches!

2. Decorating with Plants

Decorating with Plants, Alison Giese

Leaf size, maintenance considerations, and planters – Who knew so much went into picking flora? We think the end result of these rooms by Alison Giese show how much the forethought (flor-thought?) makes a difference.

3. Calming Blue Hues

PPG Paint’s 2020 Color of the Year is the Most Therapeutic Color, Apartment Therapy

PPG Paint has announced their 2020 Color of the Year – Chinese Porcelain. This vivid blue has is a great choice for a serene living room without sacrificing personality. Pair it with a solid neutral like our Prime hexagon tiles for a kitchen backsplash or bath that pops.

4. WeWork at Salesforce Tower

WeWork Opens San Francisco HQ, Dezeen

Vibrant rugs and other pops of color keep the vibe fun and light in WeWork’s San Francisco office. The plentiful natural light from the 37th floor of the Pelli Clarke Pelli Salesforce Tower doesn’t hurt either.

5. Contemporary Office Design

Spacious Flowpolis Office in Amsterdam, Dezeen

We would love to work in an office like this! This Amsterdam company is combining open spaces with translucent partitions to create an airy atmosphere for employees.
