The past number of months have changed the way many people use their homes. Bedrooms are being nicknamed the ‘boffice’ and living rooms now function as schools and offices by day.

A strong colour choice, mixed with playful orange accents and a unique furnishings create this modern home office designed by Helena Cousins of Zinc Interiors Ltd.

Picking Colourtrend’s Peacock Blue in interior matte finish for the walls, alongside the softer hues of Subtle from Colourtrend’s contemporary range to coat the woodwork, Helena’s design is vivid but calming.

She said: “Colour affects us all on a psychological level. So, it’s important when you choose a colour to choose something that is going to reflect your image. For example, if you want a very zen-like relaxing zone, pick a blue, as blue tones are really calming. It stimulates, but not overly, so it is just a really good work colour.”
