Over the summer, Rydhima Brar of R/terior Studio in Los Angeles had a large increase in requests to design homeschooling spaces over Zoom. Her simple cost-effective approach is applicable for many homeschooling situations where a complete overhaul isn’t necessary, but perhaps the space just needs a refresh. Brar recommends starting by clearing out the existing space and peppering in school-friendly items like bookends, wall clocks, and pencil holders. Because extended delivery times have been par for the course during the pandemic, it’s crucial for parents to make sure their orders will arrive on time before. “Amazon, Target, and Wayfair have a great range of items and can be usually be delivered within two to five days. They offer quick and contactless deliveries,” says Brar. “Some home decor and school supply sites have significant delays due to COVID and will post below the item on the website letting you know it won’t arrive for several months. So make sure you read the fine print when ordering your items.” But even rearranging what’s already there can make a major difference. “Move the desk to the opposite wall or close to the window and move the bed to the opposite side to make the room feel fresh instantly. Then accent with rugs, window treatments, etc.”
