Image Interiors & Living exclusive!?Crown?Paints transform?the shared offices of three dynamic Dublin go-getters?? with startling (perfectly pink) results…

Crown Paint, as part of its ?Make Your Mark? campaign have teamed up with some cool?Irish creatives to revamp their working spaces in a bid to help them be even more creatively. Seen here are the blushingly beautiful Dublin offices of freelance journalists Vicki Notaro and?Nadia El Ferdaoussi, and’stylist Corina Gaffey???aka 5th Floor Creative.

?Colour is key to your mood, which effects productivity, so make sure you surround yourself with the correct ones,? says?Crown rep?Darren McIlroy. While pink may seem like a daring choice, it suits the personality of the space perfectly. ?We loved working with the 5th Floor Creative because they aren’t afraid of making their mark,” explains Darren. ?If you work in the creative industry, as these women do, having an inspiring workspace is essential.?

So, how did Vicki, Nadia and Corina feel about their newly pink professional palace???As a writer, my surroundings are really important to get the creative juices flowing,” says Vicki. “The pink room is much more cosy and inviting, and just walking in there brightens up my day.? Corina chimes in:??Working as?fashion as a stylist, I’m all about injecting personality and fun.?The bright pink walls do just and make for an inspiring place to be. Plus, the cool grey is a nice complement to the girlie pink.? Finally, Nadia is unequivocal. ?I’m in love with the brighter pink walls, especially as we’ll be coming into the cold and dark winter months. It feels much warmer.?
