Office

Revamp your home office with just a few quick and easy updates. Martin is a fan of peel-and-stick wallpaper to give any room an instant face lift. It’s renter-friendly and easy to use.
Also, consider giving the space a pop of color with a bright chair. Stick to whites for the desk area and you’ll have an office that you might actually want to spend time in.

Playroom
When it comes to a play space for kids, it’s all about durability. Wood floor mats are perfect for stopping dirt and mud from tracking in through your home.
To create a comfy and cozy area for the kids to hang, have some fun with customized ottomans and pillows. Bonus: Ottomans can easily be used as side tables by simply adding a tray. Now that’s versatility!
