Believe it or not, but a good office design can actually improve your productivity and mood. According to a recent study summarized by Forbes, a bland office space produces feelings of sadness and depression. And that goes for your home office too; even though it’s an office space, it doesn’t have to feel that way. Cue the color by mixing office materials. Bring the pop of personality that your home office needs!
Personalize your work environment
No one says that your home office has to have white walls and a natural wood desk. Personalize your work environment with features that speak to you and your personal style! Start by choosing the perfect desk, custom cabinetry or built-ins. Then incorporate colors and textures that personalize the space. Even if you have a modern taste, there are always ways to incorporate pops of color into a neutral palette.
Play up the space with pattern
Using patterns as your central design element is easier than you think. Patterns, and texture especially, are major trends, which means you can find inspiration anywhere! Choose a fun wallpaper, exposed brick (offered in wallpaper as well), a library wall, or let the floors do the talking as shown in the attached image. You can think outside the box as well; consider a cork wall, a denim rug, antique accents, or loud throw pillows.
Incorporate plenty of windows
The easiest way to add color is to incorporate plenty of windows. In fact, opening the walls to the outdoors is the simplest form of texture! Let the natural light flow so you can get a glimpse of the outdoors during a heavy work day.
