Add Some Greenery In The Office For More Productivity




Not feeling very productive in your office? You might be missing that key ingredient likely to boost productivity-greenery aka plant life. Adding greenery/plants to a space to oxygenate and purify the air is well known, but what about for productivity? 

Research show that just a few houseplants in an office space can improve our productivity by as much as 38%, while improving our health by removing toxins from the air and giving us an overall sense of wellbeing.

 Psychologists at Exeter University have described sparse offices as "the most toxic space you can put a human into." In a series of experiments, the researchers found that when they incorporated just one plant per square meter into offices, employee performance significantly improved on measures of memory retention and other basic tests.

The researchers also believe that while everyone benefits from the improved air quality that plants deliver, it’s also psychologically important that everyone can see a plant from their desk—this visual stimulation appears to be strongly linked to workplace satisfaction and self-reported levels of concentration.

Yellow Ochre is The It Color Of The Summer


Yellow Ochre is The It Color Of The Summer-design addict mom




This post might be inspired by the respite from numerous days of rain that we've been having here in the Carolinas. Today the sun is shining beautifully! Yellow ochre was my "it" color for Fall and it is still holding first place for Summer. It doesn't seem like I am the only one in love with this color as I've been seeing it everywhere; especially in the fashion and interior design industries. {image via}

This flowy yellow ochre dress is beautiful for Summer and can be readily layered with a jean jacket (like above) for Fall.

 It's been awhile since I've taken you inside a Parisian apartment. They never disappoint and this one featured today is quite swoon-worthy! I am drooling over all the furniture and that deep blue velvet sofa is so delicious!

 OMG, these velvet chairs! really everything in this space and grounded by that animal print rug-definitely I'm swooning! I love the wild take on design approach by the renovating team, Champeau and Wilde studio.
