Latvian designer Anna Butele used fluorescent paint and marker pens to write inspirational messages across the walls at the new office of her interior design firm Annvil in Riga (+ slideshow).

"Some are in English, some are in Latvian, but they are about being in the moment. It's always a reminder about thinking of everything you can imagine," Anna Butele told Dezeen.

Located on Alberta Street, Annvil's offices are located within an old building and parts of the original interior are retained, such as the parquet flooring and wooden doors.

The walls are coloured with pastel shades of lilac, turquoise and white, while the painted messages are stencilled in different fonts and fluorescent stripes line the skirting boards.

"The materials of the old building are there and we just coloured everything," said Butele.

Furniture includes a mix of new and reclaimed pieces, plus a few items that were designed by Annvil. This includes the combined bookshelf and cabinet that leans against a wall and a mirror with bright yellow edges.

In the largest room, an abstract portrait of Butele made up of nine panels is the focus. "The pieces fit together like a puzzle," she explained.

The project was completed this year and replaces the studio's previous address on Stabu Street.
