Are you still undecided about your home's overall style? While tons of pegs are available online and through books and magazines, you may also get inspiration from the places and things you love. Do you have a favorite cafe with quaint decor pieces? How about pretty collections? You can easily turn these into pegs!

We recently visited the Happy Skin HQ and we were impressed with their interiors! We've noted some of the things that we loved in their office that may just give you a couple of decorating ideas for your own space:

Work on a color scheme

Aside from injecting the colors that you love, think about hues and shades that work well with your furniture and accessories. There are colors that work well in small spaces or you may also ask for recommendations from a design professional

The Happy Skin HQ is filled with eye-catching hues that showcase a fun and hip brand. “The main colors of the Happy Skin Brand are pink and teal, so we used it as main colors for the interiors. Then we added some complementary colors as well, to complete the look,” shares interior designer Rossy Yabut-Rojales of Heim Interiors. 

Take inspiration from your favorite things

Whether you love to collect books or cosmetics, you can use these things as a guide when styling your room. “Happy Skin is known for its pretty and eye-catching packaging, which is why we wanted our office to be a reflection of that too,” shares Happy Skin co-founder Rissa Mananquil-Trillo.

“We chose accessories that were inspired by Happy Skin’s different collections,” shares stylists Leona Panutat and Charlene Carlos. “The water color vases reminded us of their Beauty in Bloom Collection.”

Opt for stylish dividers

Do you have an open layout at home? To maximize every inch of space and to be able to enjoy different areas at home, you can add and work with dividers.

“We used Lattice-work panels as dividers to maintain privacy for meetings even if the office had an open layout,” Rossy shares. 

Use patterns and prints

If you love floral designs or Boho prints, you can translate them into how you choose your home accessories. “The combination of patterns and prints of the batik pompom pillows made the receiving area happy and inviting,” Leona explains.

Showcase your personal style

As we entered the Happy Skin HQ, we instantly recognized the brand because it was clearly shown in their chic and feminine interiors. “It is important for me and my team to be in a work environment that inspires beauty and happiness, just like our products,” Rissa shares.

Before you decide on a certain style, do your research and assess if the look that you prefer is a perfect fit. Don’t go for a certain style just because it’s trendy or it looks nice. You should always take into consideration your needs, the floor area, and comfort.
