Vintage Home Office Inspiration

Vintage Home Office Inspiration

The vintage beauty of old world carved barn doors, the romance and charm of rustic wood armoires with subtle hues of color seeping through, a vintage home office looks and feels classic. Look at these floral, paisley carved reclaimed wood armoires, hand carved and intricately detailed and you’ll feel the fluid feminine energy or the earthy masculine energy in the brass studded antique doors sitting across the office desk.

Rustic old doors salvaged from old Indian Havelis are repurposed into office desks and coffee tables, bringing with them the eclectic bohemian vibe. Natural wood antique old arches make spectacular wall mirrors or floor mirrors that add a dramatic touch and make the room look double its size. If the office is mainly beige, you can take dark wood furniture for a contrast. A turquoise or sea blue sideboard is the perfect storage chest or media console for a flat screen television. The tribal damchiya in multicolors and the mirrors that reflect away negative energy serves as a hall table, a throw back to your travels to distant countries and different cultures.

Our universe gives us the tools to guide us through the toughest of situations and we have to be willing to adapt ourselves to ever changing times and calamities. Necessity is the mother of invention, and evolution comes on the close steps of essential change. The study office is today an essential part of our homes. With technology surrounding us, we have to be aware of the electromagnetic charge that emanates from televisions and computers and how it interacts with our aura. Natural old wood consoles with earthing iron and brass nails can be used as printing stations and serve to discharge the harmful ions, grounding them through the metal and wood into the earth.

Stress management at home, when all your activities are limited to you being indoors, your sacred space holds extra importance. Use the Northeast corner of the room to create a natural altar with the 5 elements of sun, air, water, earth and ether. Use the top shelf of a vintage bookcase for your favorite potted plant, the Sri Yantra crystals or mala beads, a copper pitcher filled with water and acknowledge the presence of the supreme self by lighting a candle and essence. A quiet repetition of mantras, calms the mind and bring focus into your daily routine. Energize your aura and bring in the vibrations of happiness, health and prosperity into your life.
