Are you bored of your usual Zoom backgrounds? Are you tired of panic-cleaning the area immediately behind your desk 30 seconds before a Zoom meeting so your colleagues don’t see the trash heap you call home? Allow us to introduce you to your latest option: Zoom backgrounds that feature home offices designed in the style of famous film directors. And yes, these are as fun as they sound. Here’s how to download these backgrounds and up your Zoom game.
How to make it look you work from a movie set
The team over at Budget Direct Home Insurance created seven digital renders of home offices — now available to download as Zoom backgrounds — featuring interior design inspired by Sofia Coppola, Wes Anderson and other highly visual film directors. Not only are they convenient, but also give us pointers on how to create a narrative with design:
The directors in our study might not be interior designers, but they excel at creating a unified, captivating look for each film and across their careers. They know how to add not just style, but character, story, and drama to a room. If you’re making or redecorating a home office where you live, far away from your colleagues, these are vital elements that you won’t find in the Home & Garden section of the Sunday supplements.
In addition to Coppola and Anderson, Zoom backgrounds of home offices featuring the design style of other directors are also available, including the Wachowskis (“The Matrix”), Bong Joon-ho (“Parasite”), David Lynch (“Twin Peaks”), Jean-Pierre Jeunet (“Amélie”) and Pedro Almodovar (“Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown”). The images are all available to save/download on the Budget Direct site.
