The Hub ...
Hub is where the heart is
As defined by Wikipedia.org in the context of a computing hub: ‘referring to a node with a huge number of links’.
What a wonderful analogy for the family computer area in the upstairs landing that accesses: two kids and the parent’s bedrooms, bathroom, laundry area, bookcase/learning centre (transformed linen closet) and the stairwell. This is a crossing of paths becoming a major intersection of family life in the home.
Bordering on the Family zone in terms of Feng Shui this is an ideal placement! With a wood desk and artwork representative of the family, complete with a lively upward growing plant, all the Feng Shui implements are present.
Due to the high volume of foot traffic the vertical space was used to the advantage with this slim style ladder desk. The black accent colour provides a much needed contrast to the uniformity white of the doors and walls. This decorative while purposeful long oblong ‘catch all’ bowl camouflages any temporary items.
