Remember way back during the dot-com boom, when it wasn’t unusual to see foosball tables and lounge spaces in offices around town? The companies I worked for had basketball courts, volleyball courts, walking trails, picnic tables…and a nap room.
Ahhh, the nap room, how did I love thee.
I was reminded of the nap room last Thursday, when I visited a new commercial client who is moving their offices into Penn Field soon. In their new space, there are existing offices with windows and a couple of interior spaces without windows. My clients want to turn one of these interior rooms into a nap room for their employees, who tend work long stretches of hours.
Now mama wants her own nap room off the home office–oh yes I do. In my nap room, I’d have…
This beautifully pale lavender tufted sofa from Crate & Barrel, because all my best naps are couch-induced and I’ve been dying to find the right home for this ever since I saw it:
But those arms are kind of high and rigid, so I would need these gorgeous, soft pillows from West Elm to rest my weary head upon:
There would have to be a comfy throw, like this silvery silk one from Garnet Hill:
This mod cloud-like table from Serena + Lily would be the perfect perch for a beverage in my nap room:
I would need soft lighting too, right? Like this girlish beaut from Horchow:
I would either play John Coltrane in my nap room or have The Ghost and Mrs. Muir playing continuously on the teevee. Both remind me of rain outside a window.
I always say that my 1978-square foot house is the perfect size for us and that if we ever decided to move, I wouldn’t want or need anything larger. But I might need to rethink that idea and incorporate a Room Fu nap room, no?
