Nida Mah­mood,

Fash­ion De­signer, Artist and Colum­nist

Cosmopolitan (India) - - LIFESTYLIST -

Q: What was the con­cept be­hind your of­fice space?

A: I am a colour-ori­ented per­son. The most im­por­tant as­pect for me is the fact that one spends most of one’s day at work and one should be in an invit­ing sur­round­ing that de­fines the per­son. My of­fice is a riot of colours, beau­ti­ful art on the walls and in­ter­est­ing knick-knacks all over the place.

Q: What is your favourite thing about your work­sta­tion?

A: My beau­ti­ful turquoise blue pin board. It holds all my crazy ideas. It has a life of its own.

Q: Three tips on cre­at­ing an invit­ing workspace...

A: Stack up on rel­e­vant books, don’t be afraid to use colour, and break away from the usual—in­no­vate.

Q: What per­sonal touches have you added that make it uniquely you?

A: Ev­ery bit of my of­fice, ev­ery corner, is me. My art is all over my walls and perched on ta­bles. I have hand-painted trunk ta­bles, cinema chairs with my own graph­ics, as well as note­books, coast­ers and cush­ions. It’s al­most like I make ev­ery­thing I would want to use.
