Being cocooned in the safety of our living spaces made us rethink the way we live and work indoors. Lines between rooms are now blurring. Open floor plans require functional pieces where the living room can be a personal workspace as well as a communal space where the family can take a break, linger, and rest. The kitchen as the heart of the home can double as a dining space, one area where we prepare and share food. Although shifted to fit the new normal standards with multi-functional spaces, our homes are first and foremost our place of solace. We now give as much importance to living and breathing spaces and as we do to our home offices and working corners.
We come home to a peaceful sanctuary where we feel connected to the outdoors, yet cocooned with the safety of indoors.
Welcoming the Outdoors In
Spaces opening up to natural light and air keeps not only a mindful home but a clear mind and healthier body. Outdoor elements like houseplants impact a more nature-loving and healthier indoors providing the motivation you need for a full day of working from home.

The perennial warmth and comfort of wood in the home creates a consoling space for the family. As we transition to the new way of living, we put high importance in establishing efficient spaces in which we live, work, learn, and play within the home.

If there is anything good that stay-at-home orders have given us is probably being able to spend more time with the family. Sharing home-cooked meals with your loved ones in the home’s dining spaces hold the family together, fortifying relationships and offering sanctuary for special occasions. Elements like a wooden dining table and a hanging lamp unify the space as it unifies the dining experience.
Warm dining moments start from the kitchen as the heart of the home. Modern kitchens are functional as they are aesthetically charming. Tying the dining area with the kitchen, the bar and buffet area can transform an entire room, making it suitable for entertaining as well as additional storage solution.

Accentuating the Home
Making our living spaces homier can be achieved with the right pieces. Lamps with welcoming glow sets the entire mood and ambience of the home.

We find shelter from the harsh realities inside a cozy home, like a caterpillar inside its cocoon – the warm feeling of being cooped up inside a bubble surrounded by comforting pieces, layers, textures and tones. Peyton Bed’s natural wood grain pattern brings in an organic warmth to the bedroom. Curved edges on the headboard envelop you as you sleep.
