Working from home ever since quarantine started has meant re-adjusting your schedules, keeping your fingers crossed for stable internet, and most importantly, finding a productive space that let's you stay *in the zone* while working. From reusing old finds to buying new furniture, people have become creative in re-inventing WFH spaces.
We asked Pinays in our Cosmo Mixers Facebook group to share before-and-after photos of their room makeovers for some design inspo, and they delivered! Check out the gorgeous transformations below:
"I redecorated the living room so we have an area in the unit to just relax and unwind when WFH gets the best of us. We’re just renting the place so the extent we can do is limited but we’re happy of how it turned out. If we can’t go out, we have to make the house less stuffy for us. We put plants inside, let our artsy side show, and overall made it photogenic! [My fave Shopee shops are] QPF Women's Accessories and Slow Life." – Nicole
"The reason why I redecorated my room [is] because I am working from home so I want my office spot [to be] minimalist and cozy at the same time. I opted for warm lights for my ceiling, [and] I am still on the hunt for a nice shelf for plants, a nice Nordic chair for my WFH essentials, and a minimalist work table." – Bernadette
"[Quarantine] extended and this is all I’ll see everyday. I felt that I needed a more comfortable (back pains, hello old age haha) and fixed workstation. I also needed to motivate myself. I feel like I’m slowly losing my routine to this pandemic. Pre-Covid, I’d wake up at 5am to avoid traffic. Now, I wake up an hour before my first meeting starts. I needed something to make me look forward to wake up each day and jump start my day.
My aesthetic: I want everything clean and simple. I stuck with main color white for most of my furniture and [used] accents of beige/gold and black. I also wanted more storage to avoid clutter and keep everything clean." – KZ
"Here is my new work space! That corner was so bare before. I have no aesthetic in mind actually, I just really wanted to have a more cozy feeling in our bedroom and since my husband and I started a small business at home, I transformed this corner into our new work space —It gives us more positive energy and motivation during this pandemic." – JD
"[I've] been out of the country for months, then my room became a little storage room. Now that I am back, I thought of [doing] a big makeover. So here it is! It took me two months to redecorate." – Phuong
