Bringing Big City Cool to the ‘Burbs

Busy streets… slick cafes… and soaring office towers… Brisbane’s CBD is buzzing with urban cool! 

But even if you work from home, you don’t have to miss out on that big city energy. 

Jindalee Home Centre in Brisbane’s west is percolating with ideas on how to give your home office a well-earned promotion and turn it into a place packed with funky, urban style.  

There are dozens of great home design stores – including Andrew’s Light Up; Provincial Living; and OzDesign.  

Plus, there’s plenty of free parking on-site (unlike Brissy’s CBD!) 

Design duo and House Rules winners, Aaron and Daniella, share tips for bringing a little world-class city cool to your home office or study. 

  1. The desk is likely to be the focal point of your home office – and will set the tone for styling the rest of the space. 
  2. A home office must be comfortable and functional – but it’s also a great space to show off your individual style. Choose a few decorative pieces like prints orobjetd’art that really speak to you. 
  3. Lighting is important when you slave over a hot computer.  But it doesn’t have to be boring. Find pieces that have an industrial edge to channel city cool.
  4. Create a tea/coffee and water station in your home office – with a glass jar of snacks, coffee machine and canisters of tea, coffee pods, etc.
