Better Ergonomics, Better Life

The Benefits of an Ergonomic Home Office

Working from home is a luxurious proposition to most, and it includes a number of enviable benefits, including: no commute, phone conferences in your pajamas, and no fighting over parking spots. Overall, the home office has become a more common reality with the proliferation of online businesses. However, a home office that is not laid out properly can leave you with more headaches than relaxing afternoons.

Here at Dawn Elise Interiors, we specialize in creating better homes for our customers. In addition to our focus on green design and quality materials, we can assuage your concerns about working from home.

One of the first considerations is the location and utilization of ambient light. Part of the advantage of a home office is a reduction in overhead, so the use of sunlight is paramount to ensuring that benefit is realized. Views of the outside world will also help one’s creativity, and encourage thinking outside the box.

The second concern is the desk and chair setup. These two pieces of furniture should work in harmony to guarantee proper back posture, hand position, and maximum comfort. A desk with a computer that is too close or too far away simply creates unnecessary adverse effects.

Whether you are in need of an entirely new home office, or you would simply like to upgrade your current setup, the experts at Dawn Elise Interiors are here to help. Give us a call at 954-609-7113 today to schedule an appointment and be sure to browse our website to learn more about us!

Design With Age in Mind

Jessica and Eric.jpg

The Aging Population and the Road Ahead

Creating the perfect home is a labor of love, and one that requires patience, forethought, and consideration of a variety of variables. In Florida, for example, designers take into consideration both the characteristics of the buyers and the ambient light provided by the ever present sun. Florida has always been a state popular with retired couples as well as senior citizens in general, and the average age of the residents there will only increase in the years and decades to come. In fact, according to the U.S Census Bureau, the elderly population is predicted to double between now and 2050 to a sizable 80 million men and women. Approximately one out of five adults will be over 65.

A Future Thinking Miami Interior Designer

So just what does this mean? One of the biggest challenges of the next 30 years will be meeting the demand for quality living environments for these older adults. Current homes will require modification, and new construction will have to reflect this burgeoning population. We at Dawn Elise Interiors pride ourselves on being up-to-date on all the latest trends in interior design. From green design to design for aging, we are well equipped and ready to handle any kind of project. Our experts can professionally redesign your bathroom or kitchen to make it easier to maneuver and ultimately, live.  Check out our website to learn more!

Beauty, Without Breaking the Bank: Salvage Materials and Upcycling

white is right

A New Kind of Interior Design in Miami

Upcycling first burst onto the scene in the mid-90s, and it did not truly gather substantial steam until 2002. Essentially upcycling consists of taking something that is no longer needed or wanted and using it in a new and different way – infusing it with life as a useful or creative item. The concept is one that has caught on in a big way in the interior design industry. Homeowners and interior designers alike are developing unique ways to reuse objects that had previously lost their luster. Both parties can get behind the strategy, as it is appealing on an aesthetic level and financial level, too.

The preferred choice for Miami inhabitants

With the beaches, nightlife, and burgeoning workforce, you’ll be hard pressed to find a Miamian merely relaxing at home. The bustling metropolis of Miami is a vibrant city, ripe with eventful folks of all ages who are constantly coming and going.

The modern style compliments a busy lifestyle well. It utilizes natural light to perfection, bouncing off a warm color scheme for a relaxed setting. Furniture choice is limited, opening up space, the lack of clutter empowers the relaxed atmosphere. Relaxation is a mood Miamians thrive on during the few moments they spend at home.

Spruce Up your Office with an Interior Makeover

indoors

Interior Design for your Commercial Space

For at least 40 hours per week we are rooted in our offices, traveling from our desk to the break room and the occasional trek to the conference room in the course of the work day. When compared the fun-centric atmospheres of large tech kings such as Google and Facebook, most offices are drab and stilted. The good news is that even the smallest splash of color, touch of pizzazz, and sense of style can completely spruce up a work space. At Dawn Elise Interiors, creating an inviting, thought-provoking work space that encourages creative thought and cooperation is an essential part of what we do.

Use Color as your Ally for Interior Decoration

Color is a great way to make your office space like new. Consider the various feelings that different colors evoke: Red for example is a strong color that can cause adverse reactions that you don’t want in the workplace. According to a Forbes article from February 4, 2014 (“How to Use Color Psychology to Give Your Business An Edge,” by Amy Morin), red reduces analytical thinking and forces human reactions to be faster and more forceful. Green, by contrast, is a great choice, as people generally like green and research has linked the color with broader thinking and more creative thought.

At the end of the day, how you choose to liven up your workplace is up to you. You can choose to have a singular theme run throughout the office, or segment the different areas to have distinctive color themes. No matter what you decide upon, you can depend on the expert advice an constructive criticism of the design experts at Dawn Elise Interiors to help you get the look you desire.
