From my home to yours

I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Many of us will now be working from home (WFH) five days a week. Whether you are a newbie or a WFH veteran, your work space is your home space and it is easy to blur the lines between work and relaxation. Because we are not sure when this “lockdown period” will come to an end, it’s important to ensure you work/home environment is fully functional for use as both. With just my husband and I, we have space to use, so I wanted to highlight how I’ve managed the spaces around the house to help me stay focused and productive.

Home Study

The first step in your “work from home” journey is to designate an area of your home, specifically for getting work done. It doesn’t have to be a separate study, if you are tight for space, it can be a borrowed space in the living room. Natural light and a view helps me focus more. So, if you can find a space next to a window you’ll find yourself feeling more upbeat. Plants, flowers and candles help me set a calm and tranquil tone to your work space. I always have a candle sitting on my desk.

Living Room

This is my time out space. The living room is where I go to take a moment away from my screen and a break from work. My laptop never makes it into this room. I am fortunate enough that my living room looks out on to my garden – so the view is pleasant and it is a nice room to relax in after a long day’s work. I’m sure for many of you, this is where most of your family time is spent and you look forward to spending your evening here catching up.

Kitchen

It is absolutely essential when working from home that you take a 45 minute/ one hour lunch break. Not only is it good to keep a routine as you would normally for the office but our health, making sure we are eating well and preparing nutritious meals. My kitchen space is open plan, bright and full of fruit for when I’m peckish. When we are done from isolating, it is my main area for hosting brunches and dinner parties.

Outside Space

One of the most important areas of our homes in current times – getting in the all important “fresh air” If you have a balcony, garden or terrace, it is essential while self-isolating to step out in to these spaces to connect with nature. I use my garden for a morning warm up and I use it again for a 4pm cup of tea, especially if the sun is shining. My husband and I have even managed a BBQ for two this week, all just to be in the outdoors more.

I hope this email has been a little uplifting for you all. If you are interested in any of the properties featured please feel free to contact me to book a virtual viewing or chat.

If you need property related advice anywhere in the world, we can personally introduce you to a specialist from one of our global offices.
