Q: My sister lives in our family’s three-storey, four-bedroom house by herself since our parents live abroad. As a birthday gift for my sister, I want to transform my old room into her new office.

She has been taking visual arts classes and she will need a hip, new, inspiring space where she can express her creativity. My sister and I love art and color and design, yet I’ve run out of ideas. Please help. —Apreel V. Garcia

A: The biggest factor to consider in creating the mood of a space is color. Blue inspires creativity. You can use a lot of refreshing but calming shades like sky blue. You can also use a deeper hue like denim blue.

You must also make sure that the room has a lot of lighting options. Use sheer curtains for the windows to let natural light in. You can also bring in floor lamps and table lamps.

Finally, you should also look for a nice desk, comfortable chair, and at least one bookshelf. Complete the space with interesting decor and accessories.
