Jessica Alba is not only beautiful; she’s an A-list Hollywood star and a trendsetter with a chic style that’s often photographed for magazines. She’s also a successful entrepreneur; her business, The Honest Company, offers eco-friendly products for babies and parents. Elle Décor magazine recently visited its headquarters, which Alba designed to feel bright and fresh.
“I wanted to give my team many different spaces to work from so they didn’t feel like they were just at their desks all day,” Alba told Elle Décor. “I always have my best ideas when I’m at home—there’s less pressure. I want to recreate that environment for people and inspire them to thrive here.”
If Alba’s work style inspires you to do the same in your home office or office workspace, we’ve got the look:
Identical to the ones found in Alba’s office, our cotton braided Red Pouf Ottoman has so many uses. Put one under your desk to elevate your feet. Use another near an oversized chair or settee to unwind or work on your laptop. And scatter more around the room for extra seating during an impromptu meeting. We love it in red, but it comes in earth, curry, grass, light blue, navy, orange, kiwi and orchid, too.
Alba’s office has a slim settee that provides comfortable seating and the feeling of home. Our Kari Ivory Settee is a great choice, offering a tailored style that fits with the professional feel of a workplace. Update the look with new pillows that match the ottoman or add a variety of colors for a sumptuous feel.
Instead of a traditional end table, Alba uses a metal cube with her settee, bringing more texture and depth to the workspace. We think our Argos Table is a great addition, with its patina finish and riveted trim. The handles make it easy to move wherever a surface is needed.
Finally, bring in a graphic rug to your office that adds interest to the floor. This horizontal stripe pattern in nautical blue is very on-trend, and will brighten up your workspace with its bold feel.
