Q: What was the concept behind your office space?
A: My office is a happy space that is feminine and inviting. The inspiration behind the vintage-y shapes and pastel tones is my fascination with the 1920s.
Q: Three tips on creating an inviting workspace...
A: Jump at the option of a space with a lot of natural light; there’s nothing more depressing than working in a dingy space. Secondly, a bit of colour goes a long way to cheer up a room. And thirdly, it’s important not to clutter your office space with things that are not related to your work. Messy desks look unforgivably unprofessional.
Q: What personal touches make your office uniquely you?
A: I particularly love the embroidered Chinese umbrella I’ve placed on top of a cabinet. It is of great sentimental value to me. I don’t use it for fear of ruining it! The sketches on the wall reflect my spiritual side, but in a fun, quirky way. Also, my work table screams ‘Rati at work’— it is littered with sketches on paper napkins of random ideas that often pop up in my head.
