With the rise of people working from home, it’s important to create an inspiring home working environment.  Of course the desk area and storage space is vital but if like me you like to stay close to the outdoors then designing a room with a view is vital.

In my own home, every space is multi functional so currently during the day I work at our family dining table next to the window.  I’d love one day to have my own desk facing the window.  My friend Lori from Wild and Grizzly has created a totally dreamy desk space looking out of her huge Georgian sash window bay (take a look-it’s gorgeous!).

While, we can’t all live in period properties, we can still enjoy bay and bow windows.  The advantages of a bow window are the deep window ledge area where you can arrange photographs, house plants and ornaments to enhance both your indoor and outdoor view.  A few quotes in frames can help motivate you each day.

The extra space that bay windows create lends itself naturally to a window seat, but with planning you could build a window seat next to most windows.  I’d love to sit at my desk to work and then move to the window seat for a relaxing break enjoying the view.  A window seat would be perfect for reading on rainy winter weekends too.

Unless you’re lucky enough to have a stunning sea, countryside or city view then you’ll want to make your garden view enjoyable to look at.  In Network Veka’s (now Inveka)  latest look book , a collaboration with a team of top interior design bloggers and stylists, there are lots of handy tips on creating a view from laying artificial turf (it looks great, but I’m still a natural grass fan) to planting green planters.

I like to grow herbs such as lavender and sage close to the window.  They smell great on a warm day when the windows are open and and are also good for memory, concentration and brain function so great to keep you alert at work.  


As well as the lookbook there is lots of inspiration on Network Veka’s Room With a View Pinterest board.
