Jennifer's June Journal

Frankfurt — Due to the shuffling of the calendar and the industry demand to keep up momentum, Heimtextil, Techtextil, and Texprocess are holding simultaneous summer editions.

Winning While Working from Home

London — “With so many of us working from home, your home office space should no longer be the forgotten room of the house. I wanted to integrate not only function but inject fun and personality using color, texture, and pattern. Plenty of us work from home with partners, kids, pets or friends…”

A Playful Workspace

London — “Without colleagues around, working from home can be stale and lacking. I wanted to create a functional, attractive, and fun work area with a touch of tranquility for those mid-morning coffee breaks. A space that encourages good mental health, comfort, sustainability, and an uplifting humor…”

Home Hobby Office

London — “Helen Crouch and Christopher Read of The Design Hub created a characterful ‘Hobby Office’ fusing business and pleasure. The impressive bespoke floor and extensive upcycling impressed the judges, particularly the cupboard-cum-pet-bed lined with repurposed jeans to use as storage,” comments Victoria Purcell.

Out of Sight, Out of Mind

London — “When creating a multifunctional home office within an existing room, I wanted a usable space which can also be enjoyed to the max once work has finished! My concept incorporates ‘discrete’ solutions to conceal work items, leaving a beautiful focal point for the room. ‘Out of sight, out of mind,’ helps separate work from home life…”

The Home Zoom Corner

London — “I wanted to create a home office sanctuary where you can work and relax in calming and colorful surroundings. The room is divided into two zones - the work zone and the coffee break/relax zone - which are laid out with the use of colors. Behind the desk I have created a lovely background especially for video meetings we now have when working from home.”


Ecologically Driven Design

Stourhead — After being intrigued by the ethos of Planted, which launched during London Design Festival in September, Trendease was curious to venture out of the city to attend Planted Country, in partnership with the National Trust, that took place at Stourhead last month. Over fifty ecologically-driven companies gathered to showcase their wares in an immaculate location.

The Hostess with the Mostess

Stourton with Gasper — Stourhead hosted Planted Country last month. This grand Palladian house was a spectacular backdrop to the show, which added a forward-thinking thread to its breathtaking historic landscape. After checking out the exhibitors, the Trendease Team could not leave without exploring these extravagant rooms known for their art collection and famous library.
