{Urban Outfitters HQ - office inspiration}

Last week's office inspiration showed the intimate and colourful workspace of Orla Kiely. This week it's all about inspiring corporate spaces and the Urban Outfitter's Headquarters in Philadelphia is the focus - what an inspiring and seductive place to work. I first read about this fantastic office space on decor8 a while back, and it's lovely to be able to feature it on my own blog. Most of us spend our life working in offices so let's celebrate how lovely they can be when a bit of colour, personality and expression are thrown into the mix.

I think it's admirable for an employer to provide such a creative and informal place for their staff to work amongst and I'm sure Urban Outfitters reap the benefits for doing so. The vast height of the main office space is bound to create an airy and fresh feeling, almost as if the space was designed to provide more head space for workers to keep their creativity from being crushed. The huge windows shown below let light flood into the different areas of the office, keeping even the smaller spaces feeling breathable. Although for many of us this kind of office space is a mere dream, there are still small elements from which inspiration can be taken. For example, hanging a favourite item of clothing or arranging different sculptures on a shelf can provide the same effect as the picture below, just on a smaller scale. I would love to see some of your own office spaces and feature them on Bright.Bazaar, so please let me know in the comments below if you wish to share the space in which you work.
