Your mood and productivity is affected by your environment, and when you’re spending most of the day in your home office, you need to make sure it has the right look. If you’re looking to transition from a purely functional space, adding wall color can inject a feeling of comfort and personality to enhance your space dramatically.
If you’re working on projects that require intense concentration and focus, you’ll need to be surrounded by non-stimulating, relaxing colors.
Cool colors, such as blues, greens, and grays are said to encourage mental clarity. A sage green like jalepeno pepper 2147-30 or a gray-green like nantucket breeze 521 is far from drab, but rather a subtle, sophisticated choice.
The hints of gray and blue in crystalline AF-485 reveal themselves in different lighting and create a pleasing atmosphere.
Earth tones are peaceful and gentle and can instantly calm an otherwise cluttered home office. Coastal path AF-380 brings order to a busy mix of work and personal objects.
If you need to be upbeat and energetic all day, you will be better off with strong, bold colors like hot apple spice 2005-20 that raise your blood pressure and keep you feeling alert.
Better yet, be a little daring by using this combination of 2140-30 dark olive and OC-139 sea wind. Add in a large burst of color on the ceiling with 1288 segovia red to prevent this rich neutral from becoming overbearing.
