What are three words you'd use to describe how you want your office to feel?
Inspiring, pleasant and functional.
What makes your home office the best place to work? And why is having this space important to you?
Being a stay-at-home mom, it’s important to have a designated space for me to work without distractions. We set up our office in the basement, next to my son’s playroom. This way, I am able to work and answer my emails while my son plays quietly next door. My office allows me to have space entirely dedicated to myself and my little paperwork.

"This space is soothing for both my mind and my body. That is what’s essential to me."
What does your office say about you?
My office says that I am a creative person who needs to be surrounded by art and objects that make me feel good. My environment plays a big role in how I feel and my office makes me want to challenge myself.
What were your inspirations when designing this space?
I was clearly inspired by the rest of my house to give it a vintage and eclectic vibe. It’s a style that I particularly like. I find that the mixture of decorative elements with an antique look mixed with more modern accessories gives a lot of personality to a space.
What element of your office is indispensable?
To me, the entire decor is essential to feel good in my office. It all starts with the magnificent Sway standing desk in white oak and the YouToo ergonomic chair, which is the ultimate comfort! This space is soothing for both my mind and my body. That is what’s essential to me.
What kind of audio do you listen to in your home office?
Since this is not a space that I use full-time, I rarely take the time to listen to podcasts or music while working. I am a fan of music that has a vintage vibe, like Blues and Folks, which makes me feel good.
Lastly, what's your #1 career tip?
