Was it just me, or did the holidays go something like: 22nd December – BLINK – 10th January?! So typical! I’ve got so many work goals this year that I’m actually really excited to be back (is that annoying?!). My first goal (as always) is to re-arrange my office / studio space – perhaps I’ll just get stuck on that for the year, who knows, but hey it’s a start! This could be why my Pinterest workspace board has over 790 pins (obsessed, who me?!). I’m a big believer in how your environment affects you – and if you create a kick a*se workspace you can achieve anything, right?! This morning I stumbled across the beautiful, minimalist studio of Ask og Eng captured by Holly and Hedda of Avenue Design Studio. Norwegian duo Kine Ask Stenersen and Kristoffer Eng founded Ask og Eng in 2016 having built several sustainable kitchens and furniture for their own homes. Today they design and create bamboo kitchens and furniture for a wider audience out of their pared-back studio in Drammen, Norway. The studio has an airy, minimalist aesthetic with striking contrast. No guessing that Kristoffer is a trained architect (oh, how I could use a skill like that!).
If you’re looking to give your workspace a bit of a spring clean (or total transformation – hey, why not?!) – there’s loooooads of beautiful inspiration in the studio archive.
My workspace actually once rocked up on the front cover of an interior book (Everything in its Place) which I’m still so proud of today! Even so, I’m thinking it could use a little wood for warmth (vintage pieces?) and some colour too – what do you reckon? Thoughts welcome!
Have a wonderful day!
PS I really had better get packing now (see earlier post). I’m off to Hamburg first thing in the morning to film with Guhl – and then will be heading to Hannover in the evening, quite the German adventure! If you feel like tagging along I’ll be posting on Instagram stories along the way!
