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.
