How to decorate a minimalist office table

This summer, get a minimalist table for your home office and decorate it artfully with a sculpture, a few colorful jars and strongly-colored bookends.

House of Finn Juhl Nyhavn Table & Tray Unit at Nest
This desk was designed by Finn Juhl – a Danish architect plus industrial designer who had studied architecture and furnished the United Nations building (in New York). The table borrows its name from Juhl’s very first studio in the capital of Denmark – Copenhagen. The desk is minimalist in design with its dark tabletop and slim black plus brown legs; the desk also has a very nice removable drawer cabinet: the drawer cabinet features colors such as bright yellow and orange and is encased inside a wooden box.

Fornasetti Serratura Bookends (Red) at Amara
These bookends feature a black and white sketch of Lina Cavalieri looking through a red keyhole; Cavalieri was a late 18th century Italian opera singer who was famously regarded as a beautiful woman and she was Piero Fornasetti’s dearest inspiration – house your favorite books to refer to (on the desk) with these bookends.

Pols Potten Caps & Jars at Amara
This set includes three jars in colors such as green; each jar also comes with a different colored cap – use the jars to store stationery items such as pencils, erasers and sharpeners on the office table.

John Lewis & Partners Stacking Animal Menagerie Sculpture (Antique Bronze) at John Lewis
This bronze sculpture depicts an animal menagerie; it features four different types of animals: a giraffe, a zebra, a monkey and an elephant – beautify the table so with it, if you love animals.

The best coasters to get

This season, consider buying a coaster; it removes the possibility of a drinking mug or glass leaving a stain on your dining table.

This set includes six coasters. Each coaster features a beautiful artwork of a street corner in Paris: the street has a café and muted yellow chairs plus white tables placed next to a big tree; there are also two striped awnings (one includes the colors red and white and another includes the colors blue and white) next to the café – use one of the coasters whilst drinking a cup of tea.

A new collaboration supplies a great range of colors for your walls

Anthropologie has partnered with the British paint brand: Farrow & Ball, and released more than 100 color shades for your walls. And that’s not all: the colors come with various finishes too, such as a glossy one. My picks of the hottest colors from the new collection:

Pointing: It’s a basic white color that can turn a cheap home into an inviting one. Choose the ‘Estate Emulsion’ finish for a chalky effect on your walls.

Railings: The dark color can be utilized in the dining area to add an upscale feel to the room (note: carefully chosen dining room furniture and accessories in lighter shades are required to complete the look); choose the ‘Modern Emulsion’ finish.

Dead Salmon: It is a very boring color but it can be used in highly-functional areas of the house, where a relaxed feel is also required to act as a good contrast; pick the ‘Estate Eggshell’ finish.

Vardo: The name of the paint is borrowed from what you call a gypsy van. The color is not as exotic however, and can be used in a multipurpose fashion if you like to have dark interiors – choose the ‘Estate Eggshell’ finish because it will protect the paint from stains.

Yellowcake: The color is just too uncomfortably bright but it can be used to paint the insides of cabinets for whichever room that requires them – for that, choose the ‘Modern Eggshell’ finish.

Card Room Green: The rich green color can be used for a contemporary game room or to make a very colorful attic; choose the ‘Full Gloss’ finish to add luster to the walls and make the space look inviting.
